Police say that a 31-year-old woman was killed after an accident that took place at about 4:22 a.m. on Jan 18. According to authorities, the 24-year-old driver of the Jeep lost control of the vehicle and hit a wooden utility pole while driving eastbound on Lake Street in Omaha. After hitting the pole, the vehicle rolled, hit a privacy fence and came to a stop on its roof.

The woman was ejected from the Jeep and declared dead at the scene of the accident. A 36-year-old passenger in the car was taken to Nebraska Medicine for treatment of a hip injury. The driver of the vehicle was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries after the crash.

He was charged with felony DUI causing serious bodily injury, willful reckless driving and driving without a license. In addition, the man was charged with motor vehicle homicide. Police said at the time of the report that an investigation into the accident was ongoing and that speed and alcohol were believed to have played a role in the accident.

An individual who is injured in a motor vehicle accident may be entitled to compensation. If someone is killed in an accident due to driver negligence, the family of the victim could file a wrongful death suit. Regardless of what type of legal action is taken, it may be beneficial to have the help of a personal injury attorney. In some cases, it may be possible to settle outside of court, which may lead to a faster resolution. This may allow the victim to have a sense of closure and allow the healing process to begin.

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..."
