Legal Representation if You Have Been Injured in Fremont

Fremont is a wonderful community full of friendly people who smile and wave at their neighbors. Downtown Freemont was voted the most charming downtown in Nebraska. Come for our famous antique shops and boutique stores and stay for dinner.

The beautiful scenery and water sports in Fremont attract a lot of visitors in the spring and summertime. You can enjoy air boat tours on Platte River or go for a swim at Splash Station.

You won’t want to miss the annual Fremont Bull Riding Classic in April, featuring two days of bull riding, bull fighting, mutton dusting, dancing, and concession stands. Come see the top cowboys in the Midwest challenged by the toughest bulls in the county.

The John C. Fremont Days Festival in July brings over 100,000 visitors to town. Festivities include a car show, children’s park, beer garden, a parade, and live music.

All those visitors in the summertime increase local traffic, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for drivers who don’t know the local roads. One nice thing about Fremont is most people don’t have to go very far to get to work. The average commute is only about 16 miles. Eighty-four percent of drivers commute alone, but less than 15 percent of commuters travel more than 24 miles.

What to Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident

After a car accident, you’re probably pretty disoriented, and you may be seriously hurt. But if you feel up to it, it’s a good idea to use your cell phone camera to take pictures of the accident scene. You will also want to keep records of all your medical treatments. This will make it easier for your Fremont personal injury lawyer to file a claim on your behalf.

If you have been injured in a car accident in Fremont, call Bottlinger Law L.L.C today at (402) 505-8234. Our personal injury law team knows how to get the maximum settlement to cover the cost of your injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents in Fremont

As a motorcycle rider, you enjoy the same rights as everyone else in Nebraska. But even when you obey all the traffic laws, use protective gear, and wear bright clothing, a lot of drivers just aren’t looking out for motorcycles. This leads to hazardous accidents where you can be seriously hurt.

Catastrophic injures may result when a negligent driver crashes into your motorcycle. Your Fremont motorcycle accident attorney will build a strong case and secure a settlement that will pay for your medical care and other expenses caused by the accident. Their investigation may include the following steps:

  • Reviewing police reports
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Investigating the accident scene
  • Consulting with experts
  • Searching out accident video and photos
  • Constructing a detailed model of the accident scene

Trucking Accidents in Fremont

A regular passenger vehicle takes about 300 feet to stop on the freeway. But a fully loaded commercial truck requires about 525 feet to stop. And that’s assuming the driver is paying attention and notices a problem in time. If the driver is inexperienced, they may push the brakes too hard, causing the truck to jackknife, which may spread the truck and its cargo to spread out across the entire freeway. This can cause a major pileup, harming passengers in several cars.

When a big rig truck hits a passenger car, it often results in catastrophic injuries for you and your passengers. Unfortunately, truckers are commonly overworked by greedy transportation companies that force them to log too many hours, creating unsafe conditions for everyone on the road.

When there’s an accident, trucking companies and their insurance agents will do everything they can to deny your claim. They may even give you a lowball offer that doesn’t come close to covering your medical expenses. An experienced truck accident lawyer knows how to calculate the costs of your injury and fight to get you a fair settlement. Common injuries and other consequences that result from truck accidents include:

Bicycle Accidents in Fremont

Riding a bicycle is a wonderful way to get exercise and enjoy the great outdoors. Unfortunately, drivers don’t always give bicycle riders enough room and they frequently ignore bike lanes altogether.

The following types of careless driver behavior threaten cyclists on the road:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Not respecting bike lanes
  • Merging without looking
  • Ignoring traffic lights
  • Failure to slow down in foggy, rainy, or snowy conditions

If you have been injured due to the careless actions of a negligent driver, your bicycle accident attorney will investigate the accident to find out who is at fault. Then your attorney will do everything they can to get you a settlement that helps get you back on your feet again by covering the cost of your medical care and other expenses caused by the accident.

If you were injured by a hit-and-run driver, there’s a possibility your attorney can find you coverage based on your underinsured and uninsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. Protection may also be available under your homeowner’s insurance policy if another cyclist causes your injury.

Pedestrian Accidents in Fremont

Drivers need to look out for pedestrians, especially at crosswalks and intersections. But sadly, people are often in a hurry or distracted, and they don’t always approach driving with enough care. This can have tragic consequences for pedestrians.

Drivers making right turns will often enter a crosswalk before they even think about looking for pedestrians. And drivers making left turns at traffic lights can also be careless with the lives of others. Sadly, the victims of pedestrian accidents are often children and teenagers.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a negligent driver, your pedestrian accident attorney will help you get a settlement to cover the cost of your injuries. Expenses caused by your injuries may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Long-term care
  • Lost wages
  • Impact on future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
