COMPENSATION FOR CAR CRASH INJURIES
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident, then it is important to raise the question of who is at fault for causing the collision. In the event that the other driver is responsible for the crash, you have the right to demand full compensation for all of your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
You should not be forced to pay the price for another person’s negligence. Some crashes are nobody’s fault; for example, if your crash occurred when a deer ran out on the road in front of your vehicle, then you would not have grounds for a personal injury claim. Many accidents, however, can be directly attributed to some form of auto negligence on the part of one of the drivers.

HOW DO YOU PROVE THAT THE OTHER DRIVER WAS NEGLIGENT?
Anyone who accepts a driver’s license and gets behind the wheel of a car accepts a responsibility to take every possible precaution to avoid causing accidents. Unfortunately, a large percentage of drivers engage in a variety of careless or reckless behaviors that can result in rear-end collisions, head-on accidents, and side-impact crashes. For example, many people use cell phones to text while driving, a behavior that has been demonstrated by a study from the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute to increase the risk of a crash by 23 times.
Other activities such as speeding, driving aggressively, or drinking and driving all similarly increase the likelihood of causing an accident. If you have reason to believe that the other driver was in some way responsible for your accident, then contact a Nebraska injury lawyer at The Robert Pahlke Law Group for help claiming the compensation you deserve.
