Deadly Nebraska car accident

On Behalf of | Feb 12, 2016 | Car Accidents |

A Jan. 24 car accident that occurred at approximately 10 a.m. near Wahoo resulted in the death of a 29-year old woman. She was driving a car through the intersection of Nebraska Highway 92 and U.S. Highway 77 at the time, heading west and carrying a 32-year-old male passenger. The car collided with a pickup truck that was traveling north, driven by a 43-year-old Osceola man.

The passenger in the car suffered severe injuries and was transported by air to a hospital in Lincoln, where he was later listed as being in critical condition. Meanwhile, the man driving the pickup suffered minor injuries, which were treated at an area medical center. The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the site of the accident. Authorities were at work in the aftermath of the incident to investigate.

Highway accidents can be varied in nature based on the location, time of day, and activity levels. In some cases, a driver can miss a sign related to speed limit changes because of the unfamiliarity with the area. In other cases, an individual may be so familiar with their surroundings that they take the condition of the roads for granted. In some cases, fault can be difficult to determine at first, which is why the authorities typically take time to investigate, photograph the scene, and take measurements. Car accidents that result in serious injuries or deaths could involve both criminal and civil action, which makes thorough investigative efforts especially important.

An individual who is seriously injured in an accident can amass a huge amount of debt in the form of medical bills, especially if there is a loss of work time related to medical problems. Legal action might be appropriate to address both economic losses and non-economic issues such as pain, suffering, and emotional duress.

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..."
