Criminal defense cases cover both criminal suits — charges brought by the government to punish an individual for an act classified as a crime — and civil suits — claims brought by individuals or organizations as a dispute over rights and duties.
Many valid accident injury claims go without ever being made because people do not understand all of the coverages available with their own auto insurance carrier. This is especially true when someone has been injured or killed due to the negligence of an uninsured driver. In Nebraska, it is mandatory that every auto insurance policy include uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM). You can review the declarations page of your auto insurance policy to see a summary what coverages you currently have. Otherwise, if you have been injured in an auto accident, and the other driver who caused the accident was driving without liability insurance, speak with a personal injury lawyer to discuss your options and find out what coverages may be available.
