Nebraska highway accident kills 2, injures 1

On Behalf of | Feb 4, 2016 | Car Accidents |

The Nebraska State Patrol and the Saunders County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a crash that took place on Jan. 24 and resulted in two fatalities. The accident occurred at around 10 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 77 and Highway 92 when a pickup truck heading north collided with a car traveling west.

The 29-year-old female driver of the car suffered fatal injuries. Her 32-year-old male passenger was taken to Bryan West Medical Center in Lincoln by medical helicopter, but he eventually succumbed to his injuries on Jan. 29. The driver of the pickup, a 43-year-old man from Osceola, was released from Saunders County Medical Center after receiving treatment. Authorities are still investigating what caused the wreck.

Some Nebraska car accidents taking place in the winter months are caused at least partly by snow or ice, but a driver can still be found negligent even if weather conditions are poor. For example, reasonable drivers are expected to slow down and use caution if the roads are slippery. If an accident investigation reveals that a motorist was traveling too fast to safely navigate roads while it was snowing, then he or she could be liable for expenses suffered by the victims of a crash. Negligence generally occurs when preventable accidents happen because of a driver’s failure to exercise the requisite standard of care.

A person who has been injured in a car accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver will often face high medical expenses and in many cases lose wages due to an inability to work during the recovery period. A personal injury attorney can often be of assistance to such an injured victim in seeking compensation for these and other economic losses through the filing of a lawsuit against the at-fault motorist.

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..."
