Bellevue is a friendly community where neighbors look out for each other. It’s a wonderful place to live and raise a family. The city attracts a lot of tourists thanks to our lovely scenery and local events.

The privately owned Fontenelle Forest features 19 miles of hiking trails and a scenic view of the Missouri River. Hawthorne Park at the Missouri River is also a popular tourist attraction, as the start of a walking trail that stretches across Bellevue.

Every June, the Bellevue Community Foundation Riverfront Festival brings a lot of people to town. This annual community celebration offers free music, a beer garden, food vendors, and spectacular fireworks. It all happens at American Heroes Park.

Bellevue has experienced a recent upsurge in population, growing by almost 50 percent during the 1990s. The average daily commute is just over 20 minutes, and 84 percent of commuters drive to work alone.

Motorcycle Accidents in Bellevue

If you ride a motorcycle, then you know it’s a fun and exciting way to get around. Motorcycles are also an economical form of transportation. But there are risks due to road hazards and motorists who aren’t always looking out for you.

Unlike passenger vehicles, motorcycles don’t have a fortified interior and seatbelts to protect you. When a motorcycle accident is caused by a negligent driver who didn’t see you, a motorcycle rider is likely to suffer serious injuries that may require extensive medical treatment followed by a long recovery period.

Common injuries and other consequences caused by motorcycle accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Fractured bones
  • Severe burns
  • Internal organ damage
  • Road rash
  • Loss of limb
  • Crush injuries
  • Wrongful death

If you are a motorcycle rider who was injured in a crash, your experienced motorcycle accident attorney will investigate your accident to find out who is negligent. Then you lawyer will fight to get you a fair settlement to cover to cost of your injuries and other expenses caused by the crash such as lost wages so you can get back on your feet again.

Trucking Accidents in Bellevue

Big rig trucks are a serious hazard for everyone on the road. A fully loaded big rig truck weighs up to 80,000 pounds and it takes a lot longer to stop than a regular vehicle. When a truck crashes into a car, the injuries can be severe, even fatal.

If you were injured in an accident caused by a negligent truck driver, it’s almost impossible to get a fair settlement on your own. Big trucking firms and their insurance companies will probably offer you a lowball settlement that doesn’t begin to cover the total cost of your recovery. When it comes to dealing with truckers and their insurance companies, you will want to let your personal injury lawyer do the negotiating.

Your auto accident lawyer will conduct an in-depth investigation to collect evidence that may include:

  • Reviewing accident reports
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Securing accident photos and video
  • Consulting medical experts about your injuries
  • Reconstructing the accident scene

Bicycle Accidents in Bellevue

Bicycle riders have the same rights as other vehicles in Nebraska. Unfortunately, drivers don’t always respect your rights. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver, your bicycle accident attorney will pursue every avenue to get you the compensation you need to get up and running again.

An experienced personal injury lawyer will go to bat for you when seeking a settlement against the negligent driver’s insurance company. Your lawyer knows how to find compensation after an accident. For example, there’s a possibility your uninsured and underinsured coverage (UM/UIM) applies if you are hit by someone who doesn’t have enough coverage. If another cyclist causes your injuries, you may be able to collect from their homeowner’s insurance policy.

Your personal injury attorney will work tirelessly to get you a settlement to cover the following types of expenses:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future income
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering

Pedestrian Accidents in Bellevue

Pedestrian accidents can be devastating, causing injuries that will disrupt your life. Even when you do everything you can to be safe, pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to the whims and oversight of drivers on the road.

The following types of negligent driver behavior can be catastrophic for innocent pedestrians:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Careless left turns
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Not stopping before entering a crosswalk
  • Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol
  • Failure to slow down in foggy, rainy, or snowy conditions

Your pedestrian accident attorney will determine who’s responsible for your injuries and come up with an effective strategy to secure the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and get on with your life.
