Fractures in the face and skull can absolutely transform someone’s life. The bones of the skull lock together in an intricate manner. When any section is broken, the injury can result in deep scars and disfigurements, brain damage, and disabilities. To recover from a facial or skull fracture, you require extensive medical treatment, multiple surgeries, and months of pain and suffering. However, if your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, then you may be able to cover all of your damages in a personal injury claim.
As we get older, we gain more experience, knowledge, and skills. Unfortunately, at a certain point, many of us begin to suffer a decline as our brains and bodies become slower. We often call these “senior moments,” attributing them to a weakening memory or slower reaction speeds.
The biggest concern on your mind after being arrested for drug possession is avoiding jail time. This may mean building an aggressive defense to win your case at trial, or negotiating a plea deal to receive a reduced sentence for a lesser charge. However, here in Omaha, you may have other options, such as entering a diversion program for substance abuse.
Taking care of an elderly family member can be difficult, especially if you have your own full-time job to contend with. That is why many Nebraska families turn to nursing homes to provide care for their aging parents and grandparents. These facilities are supposed to be safe, happy, respectful – the perfect place for your loved one to live in. Sadly, that isn’t always the case.
Every driver dreads seeing police lights in the rearview mirror and hearing that fateful siren. While we grow up learning to respect police officers, there is no stopping the anxiety that comes with being pulled over. You don’t want to say or do anything that can be misconstrued as guilty and lead to your arrest. However, you should always remember that you do have rights, and there are ways to diffuse a stressful situation.
It seems like every year, auto manufacturers come out with a new piece of technology. Whether it was heated seats, Bluetooth, built-in GPS, or auxiliary cables, many of these changes made cars more comfortable to drive but didn’t have major safety improvements. It was not until recently that cars were upgraded with backward-facing cameras to help protect pedestrians when drivers are backing out of their garages.
For the average family, suffering a serious injury in a car crash, slip-and-fall, or even a farm accident can be absolutely devastating.

People may dismiss dog bites as minor injuries, but they are far more costly than most people assume. Dogs have filthy mouths that often contain dangerous bacteria, parasites, and viruses that are spread through their saliva. Even a mild bite may require expensive medication, and more violent ones can cause disabilities, scarring, and emotional trauma, which also amount to an expensive bill.
One of the most difficult situations to be in the middle of is a nursing home abuse or neglect claim. For families, it is heartbreaking to see a loved one mistreated and difficult to process all of the legal requirements they must fulfill. In many cases, family members face certain roadblocks that prevent them from filing a civil case against a facility that caused their loved one’s injuries, typically because they do not have the legal authority to act on their loved one’s behalf.
