A fatal accident does not always result in the immediate death of the victim. Many people involved in crashes in Nebraska are injured severely and taken for emergency medical treatment. Sometimes, that treatment cannot save them, turning a crash into a fatal accident.
Fortunately, not every car wreck results in fatalities. However, when drivers, passengers or pedestrians are killed as a direct result of a wreck, it is important for victims' loved ones to realize that they have options. Specifically, the Nebraska courts offer them the opportunity to pursue legal means to obtain compensation for their family members' deaths.
More than two years ago, a Nebraska woman was killed when a truck crashed into her vehicle. The incident also left the victim's passengers, both family members, injured as a result. Now, the truck driver has been found guilty of manslaughter and will spend up to 20 years incarcerated as a result. Of course, no type of punishment can bring back the woman he killed erase the memory of the tragedy from the passengers' minds.
