Car Accidents in Nebraska
More than 1,000 people are hospitalized each year with injuries from collisions throughout Nebraska. The majority of accidents are caused by distracted drivers sharing the road. Nearly 40% of accidents throughout the United States occur at intersections caused by drivers who run red lights or pass through stop signs. Not only are victims forced to struggle moving forward, but their families are often forced to deal with the stacking financial burdens, lost income, and emotional consequences.
The unfortunate truth is that the majority of accidents throughout the state of Nebraska are a result of driver negligence. In fact, around 80% of traffic-related incidents are a result of drivers who are distracted, impaired, or engaging in reckless and negligent activities while operating their vehicles. Although we can be diligent and in control of our actions while driving, there is little we can do to ensure others act in the same responsible manner.
