Negligence seems to be surging across the state of Nebraska, which means citizens of our state are increasingly vulnerable to personal injuries at the hands of irresponsible or malicious people. An ordinary day at work or routine trip home from the grocery store can end in devastation. No one sees these accidents coming, and there's no true way to be prepared for them when they happen. All you can do is pick up the pieces afterward and attempt to reconstruct your shattered life. Nebraska personal injury attorney Larry Demerath and the team at Demerath Law are here to help victims and their families do just that.

Personal Injury Representation Born of Experience

Nebraska Injury Law FirmA Nebraska native, attorney Demerath graduated from Wayne State College. He went on to serve our country in Vietnam with the U.S. Air Force before returning home to attend the University of Nebraska College of Law. After passing the bar exam, he was legally qualified to focus on any branch of the law and could have taken his practice anywhere in the nation, yet he chose to use his knowledge and dedicate his career to making a difference in the lives of families in his home state as a Nebraska personal injury attorney. Now, 40 years later, he continues to successfully represent local victims in the various branches of this field.

  • Car Accidents: With each passing year, the number of people on our state's roadways grows and, of course, the number of vehicle accidents rises in unison. Reports indicate more than 3,500 crashes resulting in serious and fatal injuries occur each year in the city of Omaha alone. In 2014, distracted drivers caused over 4,000 accidents throughout the state. Our personal injury attorneys in Nebraska see cases ranging from pedestrians suffering paralysis-inducing spinal cord damage in alcohol-related accidents to families who've lost loved ones because someone chose to text while driving.
  • Trucking Accidents: Nebraska is one of the six highest ranking states in the nation for tractor-trailer accidents. In addition to being far more deadly than ordinary crashes, these cases are often more complicated to represent. Fault could lie with anyone from the 18-wheeler's operator to technicians responsible for its maintenance. Having an experienced Nebraska personal injury attorney with extensive resources on your side is critical when it comes to determining who is at fault and proving this in court.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: For those on motorcycles, our state's streets and highways can be particularly threatening. You've got no cage to protect you, and you have to be constantly mindful of potholes, road debris, careless drivers and other hazards. Though skill, vigilance, and protective gear have helped many bikers avoid injury and death, even these elements can't prevent all accidents or serious injuries. As a former motorcyclist, Attorney Demerath is well aware of the dangers riders face every day. This valuable life experience and his legal knowledge give him, as well as the motorcycle accident victims he represents, a unique advantage.
  • Recreational Vehicle Injuries: ATV's, boats, dirt bikes and other recreational vehicles are popular among almost all age groups, and they provide hours of fun and family time. Still, the inherent dangers of these types of equipment can't be ignored. Despite the most thorough training and attention to safety measures, a day of fun at the lake or four-wheeling through wooded trails can quickly take a turn for the worse. Being an avid boater, Nebraska personal injury attorneys at Demerath Law Office understand accidents involving recreational vehicles are often the result of outside forces. From defective components to overly-opaque marketing efforts, causes of these accidents tend to run far deeper than operator error.
  • Agricultural Incidents: The Bureau of Labor and Statistics' most recent reports indicate approximately 500 workers in our state's agricultural industry were injured on the job in 2013 with an additional 15 experiencing fatal injuries. Having been raised in the corn farming industry, Attorney Demerath is a personal injury lawyer in Nebraska who has firsthand knowledge of the dangers of this type of work. Those in this sector endure prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures, spend their days working with dangerous equipment, and face a number of other hazards in an effort to supply our communities with many of commodities they need. Injuries and deaths occur due to falls, falling objects, and unsafe machinery to name a few factors.

In any of these scenarios, you'll find yourself crumbling under the weight of mounting medical bills, an inability to cover even the most basic living expenses, the costs of repairing any resulting property damages, and a number of other issues. If your loved one's injuries were ultimately catastrophic or fatal, you'll also be up against the loss of his or her companionship and future earning potential among many additional hardships. Our Nebraska personal injury attorneys can help you recover financial damages and, in some cases, compensation for your emotional losses.
