Helping You Get the Money You Need to Get Better

When you or your passengers are injured in an automobile collision, it can turn your whole world upside down. Your medical bills and other expenses caused by the accident will begin to pile up. And you may have to take time away from work to focus on your recovery.

If the driver who caused the accident was uninsured or if they were insured but they didn’t have enough coverage to pay your expenses, you could be left holding the bag. The good news is that insurance companies in Nebraska are required to provide all their customers with uninsured/underinsured (UI/UIM) motorist coverage to protect you in these situations.

Insurance companies are in business to make money, and they increase their profits by paying out as little in claims as they can get away with. It can be very difficult to get an insurance company to honor their UI/UIM obligation, especially if you don’t have a Papillion-La Vista car accident attorney by your side.

At Bottlinger Law L.L.C., we know how to stand up to the big insurance companies. Our team will file a claim to help you get all the money you deserve.

What to Do After an Auto Accident in Papillion-La Vista

We know this is a difficult time, but there are important steps you will want to take after an accident. This will help ensure that you and your passengers are getting the right medical treatment. And it will also be very useful for your Papillion-La Vista personal injury lawyer when they conduct their investigation.

  1. Check to see if anyone in your vehicle requires medical assistance.

How Your Papillion-La Vista Lawyer Can Help

When you are injured in an accident caused by a UI/UIM driver, your insurance company is required to provide you with additional coverage. But they will often do everything they can to deny you coverage.

The insurance company may claim that you were actually responsible the accident. Or they might say that you didn’t follow the right procedures when filing your claim. Another common tactic they use is to say that your treatment was unnecessary or too expensive. Sometimes the insurance company will even try to argue that your injuries weren’t caused by the accident.

At Bottlinger Law, L.L.C., we’ve heard it all before. We’ll conduct a thorough investigation to determine whose negligence caused the accident. Then, we will pursue all available avenues to help you get the money you need to get better.
