What is the statute of limitations for a car accident?

After a car accident, there are several things that you need to do as soon as possible. But what many people don’t know is that there is also a legal time limit for when you have to bring your claim. 

In Nebraska, the applicable statute of limitations for an automobile accident is four years. 

This means that an injured plaintiff has a total of four years in which they should file their claim, or it will be forever barred.  However, this does not mean that you should delay in filing your claim.  Evidence can be lost and insurance companies and courts do not look favorably on plaintiffs who do not report their accident within a reasonable period of time.
