A Nebraska man was arrested after allegedly causing a car accident that resulted in injury to five people, including himself. The arrest came three days after the actual car accident. At the time of a report on the incident, he had not posted the bail he needed for release.
A Nebraska man has been declared dead after a car accident that happened one recent afternoon. Another vehicle was involved, but that driver was only slightly injured and was treated at the scene. Police say they are still investigating the car accident to determine if one of the drivers had been drinking or speeding.
In the state of Nebraska, a bill is being discussed that would give those who have to use wheelchairs in a crosswalk the same rights and protections as those who choose to walk or jog in crosswalks. This means that if a wheelchair user who follows the traffic rules is hit by a vehicle, he or she will be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit under the same law that covers pedestrians. This is a boost for those in wheelchairs who may have felt that their personal injury rights were not being met by lawmakers.
It isn't unusual to hear about a car accident somewhere in Nebraska on a regular basis, and many people may be injured as a result of the incident. Those victims may then seek compensation from the person believed responsible for the crash to seek recovery of their related expenses and other financial losses. Sometimes, the individual deemed to have been responsible died in the car accident, in which case victims still have the option to pursue a lawsuit against the estate of the deceased driver.
Winter in Nebraska can be a rough time of the year, especially when ice, snow and sleet shower the state. To prevent car accidents, drivers must remain vigilant, and they must also maintain their vehicles properly to avoid problems. Many times, authorities suggest that drivers stay off of Nebraska highways when wintry weather gets particularly treacherous; however, this is not always possible and sometimes leads to car accidents.
A car accident is an experience that no one wants to have. Yet these types of occurrences happen regularly on the highways and back roads in Nebraska. Often, the car accident is little more than a "fender bender." While this type of minor car accident is an annoyance, if it is one from which everyone walks away without injury, it is often chalked up to mild misfortune. However, when the collision results in the death of a passenger or driver, the event takes on a much different character.
A common result of two-vehicle accidents is that at least one party suffers from injuries sustained during the crash. The sheer force of the impact can throw the human body in a multitude of directions, depending upon where the impact occurs, the speed involved and other factors. It is hardly surprising that so many Nebraska headlines regarding car, SUV, truck and motorcycle accidents include mentions of injuries.
Car accidents that result in injuries can be difficult enough on the victims and their families, but when a victim is killed it can cause severe emotional trauma for a family. This emotional trauma can often impact family members for an extended period of time and change their lives forever. Unfortunately, one Nebraska family now knows the pain of such a loss after a car accident took the life of a loved one.
New drivers are not as experienced as those that have been on the road for a longer period of time. Although this is not always an issue, it can create problems when these young drivers are put in situations while behind the wheel that benefit from experience. These kinds of situations can quickly escalate into accidents and may even leave those involved with serious injuries. Unfortunately, one car accident in Nebraska involving a new driver recently sent two people to the hospital.
Car accidents that involve two vehicles are often serious enough, but, when multiple vehicles are involved, the severity of the incident is often heightened. A multi-car accident can leave those involved with severe injuries, and send numerous people to the hospital. Unfortunately, one recent car accident in Nebraska ended with eight individuals being sent to the hospital for treatment.
