Drunk Driving Accidents in Nebraska
More than 1,600 motor vehicle collisions occur in Nebraska each year as a result of drunk or impaired drivers. Drivers who are under the influence while behind the wheel are less likely to respond to red lights, stop signs, and other vehicles on the road. This fact drastically increases the likelihood of devastating collisions. When victims are harmed in accidents, as a result of drunk or reckless drivers, it is crucial that they contact a car accident attorney in Nebraska as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
