Personal Injury Law

With over 30 years of experience in Nebraska, Huston & Higgins can help you with your personal injuries. We build strong cases for our clients and receive the best results. We have experience working with physicians, life care planners, vocational consultants and economists. We have extensive knowledge with insurance coverage and claim adjusters.

If you're involved in a motor vehicle accident:

  • Call 911 to get immediate help and notify law enforcement
  • Do not take any blame for the accident
  • Report the accident to your insurance company immediately
  • Do not discuss the accident or give any type of statement to anyone other than the police
  • Refuse to discuss the accident with any other party until you have reached out to your insurance company or attorney
  • Take photos of damage to your vehicle and any injuries sustained by every party involved in your vehicle
  • If a passenger in your vehicle is injured, please consult a physician ASAP
Under Nebraska law, any statement you give can be used to reduce or deny your recovery. State law provides that if a person is 50% contributory negligent or greater, that person cannot recover damages – even if the other party is negligent. In order to reduce the amount of damages you may be entitled to recover, it is in the other party's best interest to establish you as partly at fault for the accident. Any statement you make can be used to limit your ability to recover damages!
