Nebraska is an at-fault state. When someone causes an accident, their insurance company is responsible for paying damages. Insurance companies will try to avoid paying claims by arguing that their client wasn’t at fault. That’s why it’s essential to have a car accident attorney who knows how to prove what really happened.
Determining negligence may be difficult. For example, a drunk driver may swerve into another vehicle, causing that vehicle to crash into you. Your Fremont personal injury accident attorney will use the information gathered during their investigation to figure how whose negligence caused your injuries.
Sometimes more than one parties are negligent for injuries caused in an accident. Besides careless drivers, manufacturers of faulty parts, managers who allowed trucks to be overloaded, companies that hired unsafe or unqualified drivers, and others may be held liable for your injuries.
A motor vehicle driver or someone who was operating a truck or a van for a delivery company may have engaged in careless or reckless driving activities that caused the accident such as:
- Speeding dramatically increase the chance that an accident will occur and makes collisions much more dangerous by reducing driver reaction time and increasing the degree of impact.
- Distracted driving. Texting, talking, adjusting the radio, and other activities may limit the amount of attention a driving is paying to the road. It only takes a moment of distraction to have catastrophic consequences.
- Driving under the influence cannot be tolerated on Nebraska’s roads and highways. It seriously impairs the driver’s judgement, reflexes, vision, and reaction time, making drunk and drugged drivers a hazard to everyone.
- Tailgating. It’s essential for drivers to give themselves room to maneuver in case the vehicle ahead of them is forced to make a sudden stop.
- Unsafe behavior at intersections. Drivers who speed through intersection, run red lights, or make unsafe turns cause many of the most harmful accidents in Nebraska.
