Motor vehicle accidents: 2 injured, 1 killed in late-night crash

There may be a multitude of circumstances in which a driver could lose control of a vehicle and shift into oncoming lanes of traffic. Regardless of how it occurs, those who encounter a similar scenario may find it nearly impossible to respond quickly enough to prevent a crash. Motor vehicle accidents involving similar scenarios can have devastating outcomes. Two individuals were rushed to the hospital with injuries following a recent head-on crash in Nebraska.

Motor vehicle accidents involving motorcycles are often fatal

For an increasing number of Nebraska residents, motorcycles are the preferred method of transportation. They are not only convenient and economical and are also a fun way to travel. However, traveling by motorcycle can also be dangerous. What makes them so dangerous is not the motorcycles themselves, but the other vehicles on the road. Since motorcyclists are exposed and minimally protected, motor vehicle accidents involving motorcycles are more likely to be very serious or fatal.

Four-time drunk driver going to prison

People who live in Nebraska might often hear others talk about how tough the laws related to drunk driving are in the state. However, it may seem to some that the laws are not quite strong enough. Too often, reports surface about accidents that are caused by intoxicated or drugged drivers who have been convicted of impaired driving offenses before. The fact that the law allows these people to keep driving and engage in the same behaviors can be hard to understand or appreciate. 

Alleged Nebraska street racing accident injures pedestrians

Racing automobiles on public streets is not only illegal in Nebraska, but it is also highly dangerous. It poses unnecessary risks to racers, other drivers and pedestrians. A 29-year-old man allegedly involved in street racing reportedly struck three onlookers in Omaha on Friday night, sending two of them to the hospital. The driver now faces criminal charges of reckless driving, no insurance and DUI. 

Nebraska multi-vehicle accident kills two children

How can you avoid construction zone accidents?

Summer is the time when the weather in Nebraska is most favorable for road construction projects. Therefore, drivers are most likely to encounter construction areas during this time of year. You may regard the modifications to your routine that road construction requires to be a minor annoyance. Nevertheless, work areas on city streets and state highways can also pose a potentially serious hazard. 

Man rear ends vehicle, killing another driver and himself

Residents in Nebraska know that motor vehicle accidents can and do happen. This is one of the reasons that carrying automobile insurance is important so that people can be protected after these events occur. However, most people should be able to trust that other drivers operate their vehicles carefully so as to avoid collisions. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

Citing negligent entrustment in your car accident case

Imagine that you were involved in a car accident in Lincoln. You will likely take some comfort in the assumption that the responsible party (and/or their insurance company) will cover your accident expenses. That comfort might soon vanish, however, if you learn that the driver that hit you was using another person's car.
