Dedicated Nebraska Advocate Handles Auto Accident Litigation
Scottsbluff lawyer also advises crash victims in Colorado and Wyoming
When you’re hurt in a car crash, you face many potential problems. As you deal with physical harm and the loss of transportation, legal and financial pressures also mount. It’s not surprising that many auto accident victims just want to put the situation behind them and take whatever settlement offer comes from an insurance company or defendant. Monte L. Neilan, Attorney at Law in Scottsbluff evens the playing field by providing comprehensive support to clients hurt in vehicle collisions. With 20 years of legal experience practicing in the courts of Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado, Mr. Neilan will safeguard your rights so that you can maximize your compensation rather than accept an unfair settlement.
Tough attorney assists with all types of vehicle collisions
Our firm gives the clients the advantage of working with a lawyer who has won substantial verdicts and settlements in personal injury and wrongful death matters. From start to finish, we will keep you apprised of the key legal issues, including those relating to:
- Insurance claims — Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado use fault-based auto insurance systems to compensate victims of vehicle crashes. This means that someone who is hurt can seek relief from their own insurance company or file a third-party claim with the insurer for the driver who is at fault. Another option is filing a lawsuit against the vehicle operator who caused the crash. We will explain the pros and cons of each option and vigorously seek full compensation no matter which path you choose.
- Pedestrian accidents — Cars, trucks and motorcycles are required to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk. If you or a family member has been hit while walking, our firm takes aggressive action against negligent motorists.
- Motorcycle crashes — Often, drivers of larger vehicles fail to see motorcycles or refuse to honor bikers’ road rights. The weight disparity can trigger devastating harm when a motorcycle is struck by a car or truck. In these matters, we pursue appropriate damages for injured riders.
We challenge the assertions of insurance companies and defendants so that victims can obtain payment for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other types of harm in court or through a favorable settlement. During a free initial consultation, attorney Monte L. Neilan will arm you with the knowledge you need to make smart decisions about your case.
Experienced firm litigates cases arising from truck accidents
Getting in an accident with a large truck or some other type of commercial vehicle presents extra physical and legal concerns. The impact of a crash with an 18-wheeler or semi often results in permanent or fatal injuries. When asserting their legal rights, truck accident victims must hire an attorney familiar with the regulations that govern the operation of large commercial vehicles. Our firm will thoroughly review the facts in the case to determine if rules on speed, driver rest or cargo were violated. Mr. Neilan’s experience handling complex litigation matters helps plaintiffs identify all liable parties, including drivers, manufacturers, fleet owners and businesses that hired the vehicle at fault.
