Nebraska Statute of Limitations Nebraska Death Accident
Nebraska has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. The statutes states that a person has four years to file for personal injury caused by another person from the date of the accident. The timeline is the same for someone needing compensation for vehicle damage. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within two years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. Nebraska follows a “modified comparative negligence” rule that gives you the award for damages in a lawsuit, but it becomes reduced by your share of negligence.
