2 dead, 1 injured in Nebraska crash

On Behalf of | Jul 15, 2015 | Firm News |

On July 4, it was reported that two people were killed and a third person was injured in a head-on car crash in Nebraska. The accident reportedly occurred on State Highway 39 at about 1 a.m.

Authorities believed that a 24-year-old man was driving a passenger car when he entered a ditch on the side of the road. He reportedly attempted to correct the vehicle and ultimately crossed over the yellow line into oncoming traffic. His vehicle collided head-on with a pickup truck that was being driven by a 40-year-old woman. Both the 24-year-old man and the 40-year-old woman did not survive. A young girl was also in the pickup truck at the time the accident took place and was transported to a hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.

Any car accident can cause serious injuries that can leave lasting damages that will affect the injured individuals for the rest of their lives. Long-term care and treatment combined with the potential inability to work can cause financial woes for the injured person.

If the accident was caused by another driver, a personal injury attorney could potentially help the victim seek compensation for both economic and noneconomic losses. Depending on the case, damages sought could include the cost of past and future medical care and rehabilitation as well as pain and suffering. If a person was killed in the accident, surviving family members may be entitled to file a wrongful death action that would seek funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship and support, and other applicable damages permitted by statute.

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..."
