In 2010, nearly 17,000 injuries were reported as a result of traffic crashes on Nebraska’s roads; 190 people lost their lives. While some vehicle accidents are unpreventable, too many occur as the result of reckless driving, lack of attention or failure to follow important safety laws.

Drunk driving continues to play a role in vehicle accidents – causing more than 1,000 traffic collisions each year. At Dyer Law, we’ve seen the results of many of those crashes – including a mother struck by a drunk driver who broke her vertebrae and lost her job as a result of her injuries. We helped her recover damages necessary to care for her children and get her life back on track.
Car accidents happen in the blink of an eye. Speeding or inattentive motorists can quickly cause a dangerous collision with other vehicles or fixed objects. The reality is that many drivers don’t follow traffic laws, and other passengers and drivers suffer. We’ve helped victims of hit-and-run accidents recover damages from their own insurance companies, and we’ve represented many clients against drivers and insurers who refuse to admit responsibility.
Motorcycle accidents often cause serious injuries. When a passenger car or truck fails to notice a motorcycle and a collision occurs, bikers simply don't stand a chance against the larger vehicle – and often leg or foot injuries, brain trauma and spinal damage are the result.
Trucking accidents are dangerous and common, particularly in Omaha and other areas near major interstates. Commercial tractor trailers are more difficult to maneuver than an ordinary car, even in the best of circumstances. According to a 2007 federal study, factors that lead to wrecks for semi trucks and their drivers include brake problems, traffic congestion, prescription and over-the-counter drug use, cell-phone use, tailgating, speeding, unfamiliarity with local roads and driver fatigue.
If you live or drive in Nebraska, you should take every precaution to drive safely and obey all traffic laws. However, you have little control over the actions of others – and accidents can happen despite your best efforts. If you are involved in a vehicle accident caused by another driver, you may be faced with serious medical problems requiring extensive and expensive treatment. Legal action can help you to obtain the compensation needed to pay your bills and preserve the financial security of you and your family. Injuries that cause the death of a loved one may also be grounds for a wrongful death suit
