Although our offices are in Lincoln, Omaha, and Seward, we have helped clients in the Grand Island area with a multitude of legal issues, including personal injury claims.
An injury in Grand Island can lead to confusion and uncertainty about what to do next. An experienced Grand Island injury lawyer from Berry Law can guide you through the complicated process of an injury claim and can help you get the compensation you deserve.
During a personal injury claim, the insurance company responsible for paying you for your injuries will try to pay as little as possible. In fact, insurance companies will often offer you a settlement following an injury as long as you sign a general release. The release will basically say that you are removing liability from the at-fault party by receiving the settlement. This inhibits you from pursuing a claim later on.
However, it is important to understand the insurance company’s motive. Their goal is to settle the claim for as little money as possible. By offering you a claim immediately for a small amount, they can reduce the overall amount of money they will have to pay you. A Grand Island personal injury attorney who knows how to fight against these insurance companies will help you get the most compensation available.

How a Personal Injury Claim Works
Anytime someone suffers a personal injury, it’s somebody’s fault. Whether your injury came from a car accident, work, or anything else, someone is responsible for what happened to you. As long as you are less than 50% responsible for the injury, you are entitled to compensation.
If you have been hurt because of someone’s actions, do not feel bad about filing for damages. Remember, when you file a personal injury case, you are not suing your neighbor or coworker, you are going after the insurance company. Insurance companies are notorious for attempting to settle cases at little cost and to their benefit. Some of the most profitable companies in America are insurance companies.
Insurance companies are so profitable because they are good at what they do. A seasoned attorney from Berry Law knows how to fight these corporate giants and will fight for your rights and try to get you the largest settlement possible.
