Preventing some common motor vehicle accident injuries

| Dec 17, 2014 | Uncategorized |

Many people in Nebraska suffer serious personal injuries as a result of being involved in car accidents every year. While some accidents are unavoidable, people can take preventative measures to lessen their likelihood of sustaining the most common types of injuries that can occur in an accident.

Commonly occurring car accident injuries include face and head injuries, brain injuries, neck injuries, back injuries and leg, feet and knee injuries. By using safety belts every time a person rides in a car, the chance of sustaining face and head injuries that can result from flying into a windshield or another part of the car can be reduced. People may also help protect their head and face by shield them with their hands and arms.

Choosing a vehicle with good side and front airbags can help lessen the chance of suffering a brain injury. People can prevent neck injuries from whiplash by ensuring their headrests are adjusted to the correct position to prevent their neck from hyperextending. Seat belts and other types of restraint systems can also help reduce the risk of back injuries by securely holding the person in place. Finally, when people are riding in a car, keeping their legs together instead of positioned in an awkward manner can reduce the risk of lower extremity injuries.

Many people suffer serious personal injuries in car accidents every year. Taking preventative measures and always using safety belts are important in reducing the severity of an injury in the event an accident occurs. A person who has been seriously injured in an accident caused by the actions of another driver may be able to seek compensation for the resulting economic and non-economic losses by filing a personal injury lawsuit.

I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen...

"...He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, email, cellphone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help..."

"...My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver & Spier Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O."

"...If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed..."
