Man killed in Nebraska rollover accident on I-80

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

Nebraska residents may be saddened to learn about a recent rollover crash that claimed the life of a 35-year-old Omaha man. The accident reportedly occurred on Aug. 2 near Ashland on Interstate 80. According to law enforcement authorities, the 35-year-old man was a passenger in a vehicle being driven by a 21-year-old Omaha man. The man who died was reportedly sitting in the front seat and was wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.

The 21-year-old driver and three other passengers were all injured in the accident. The four injured people were transported to Bryan Trauma Center West in Lincoln for treatment of their injuries. Reportedly, the car in which all of the people were driving crashed into the median. Police with the Nebraska State Patrol are still investigating the cause of the accident and have not released information regarding what happened as of yet.

When people are killed in motor vehicle accidents, their families may be left suffering from both unexpected financial expenses and losses as well as the grief and shock of losing their loved ones. In the event that a car accident was caused by the negligent driving behavior of another person, the family of a person killed in such an accident may want to consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible driver.

Through a lawsuit, the family may be able to seek recovery of damages for some of the losses they have incurred. A personal injury attorney might review the evidence and then draft and file the legal complaint. Damages that are often sought in a wrongful death action include funeral and burial expenses and other amounts 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..."
