The Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury in Nebraska

If you've been injured in an accident in Nebraska, you must file a personal injury lawsuit within the appropriate time frame or your case may not be heard. The legal term for this is the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for general personal injury claims is four years. However, Nebraska has different time limits for specific types of personal injury cases. Here is a breakdown of some of the most common case types:

  • Motor vehicle accidents - 4 years
  • Dog bites - 4 years
  • Work-related injuries/workers' comp - 2 years
  • Wrongful death - 2 years
  • Medical malpractice - 2 years from date of injury, 1 year from date of discovery

While these statutes of limitations are meant to prevent unlawful or cruel lawsuits, they can also make it difficult for victims of accidents to get the justice they deserve. If the statute of limitations for your type of case has expired, it might be impossible for you to ever pursue compensation. That's why it's essential that you contact a skilled Omaha personal injury lawyer right away!
