Nebraska Revised Statute 81-1825

Chapter 81


Committee; subrogation rights.

When an order for the payment of compensation for personal injury or death is made from the Victim's Compensation Fund, the committee shall be subrogated to the cause of action of the applicant against the person responsible for the injury or death and shall be entitled to bring an action against such person for the amount of the damages sustained by the applicant. If an amount greater than that paid under the order is recovered and collected in the action, the committee shall pay the balance to the applicant.
