Rollover accidents in Nebraska

On Behalf of | May 6, 2015 | Car Accidents |

Rollover car accidents in Nebraska can result in serious injuries that may even be life-threatening. Because many rollover accidents are single-vehicle accidents, passengers are at the most risk for becoming involved in an incident that they cannot control. For example, the injuries could potentially include a spinal cord injury, traumatic brain trauma and damage to internal organs.

Any vehicle has the ability to roll over. However, vehicles that have a taller center of gravity, such as SUVs and vans, are much more likely to roll over should they become involved in a crash. For example, a driver who attempts to navigate a sharp curve while driving at fast speeds could cause the vehicle to tip over. A driver can also cause a vehicle to roll over while attempting to over-correct. Finally, vehicles can also roll over if they “trip” over something in the roadway, which can include potholes, a curb or even a soft road shoulder.

Because SUVs and other top-heavy vehicles are the most likely to be involved in rollover accidents, their safety technology has advanced the most. Newer SUVs have a lower rollover death-rate than newer sedans and other small passenger vehicles.

Drivers are responsible for the safety of themselves and their passengers as well as others who are on the road. If they cause a rollover accident because they were traveling too fast or were not paying attention to the road, an injured passenger could potentially file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. In many cases, victims seek to recover all damages associated with the accident, including medical bills and rehabilitation expenses in addition to wages that were lost due to being out of work during the recovery period.

I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen...

"...He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, email, cellphone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help..."

"...My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood Law"

"...If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed..."
