Woman injured in SUV rollover accident

On Behalf of | Sep 8, 2015 | Car Accidents |

On Aug. 29, it was reported that a Nebraska woman suffered serious injuries after her vehicle rolled when she attempted to avoid an accident. She was driving on Interstate 29 when a ladder fell off of the truck in front of her.

She stated that swerved her vehicle to avoid the ladder, but she lost control, causing her SUV to roll. The force caused her to be ejected from the vehicle. Her body struck a power pole after being thrown 15 feet. She was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of her injuries. Her two young children under the age of 6 and a third passenger did not suffer any major injuries. Witnesses reportedly carried them away from the wreck to safety. It appeared that the woman had her seat belt on, but it failed when the vehicle rolled. An officer reportedly told her after the fact that a penny had been stuck in it.

The driver of the truck that lost the ladder reportedly pulled over immediately following the accident. It was stated that he could potentially be charged for the accident as he had not secured the ladder to the truck.

When a motor vehicle accident occurs, it is often the result of negligence on behalf of another driver. If this is the case, that driver could potentially be held responsible in a civil action for any damages or injuries. An attorney may help the injured person gather the evidence, such as police reports and witness testimony, that demonstrated that the other driver was at fault. The compensation that the injured person may seek might include the costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation expenses and lost wages.

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..."
