A wrongful act committed by an individual or entity against another person constitutes an act of personal injury in the state of Nebraska. Victims of personal injury cases have the right to seek damages for the emotional, physical, and mental harm they have been subjected to, and these injuries can take many forms.
In cases of personal injury, Grand Island attorneys must prove that the offender acted in a negligent manner, or in a way that their actions caused you harm. Negligence can take the form of recklessness, carelessness, or a lack of preventative actions that a reasonably cautious person would have taken in a similar situation. Essentially, it must be proven that the negligent party failed to live up to a duty they were obliged to fulfill.
