Dodge County Wrong Way Crash Kills Two, Injures One

By Omaha Personal Injury Attorney on October 23, 2015

Omaha Wrong Way Accident Nebraska’s highways can be dangerous. This was illustrated just last week when a man and his wife were killed and another man was seriously injured in a head on collision. According to a story on Omaha’s WOWT, the accident happened on Highway 30 in Dodge County when an SUV crossed over the center line into oncoming traffic and collided with a semi truck.Both vehicles immediately burst into flames. Two passing drivers managed to rescue the 53 year old truck driver from his cab. He was flown by helicopter to the Nebraska Medical Center. The driver of the SUV and his wife died at the scene.

The loss of life is always a horrible thing. According to witnesses, the SUV crossed over the line and was going the wrong way—making the truck driver not at fault. Never the less, the truck driver suffered serious injuries that will affect him and his family a long time.

In this case, the truck driver has the right to file a claim of negligence against the estate of the SUV driver and his insurance company. No one wants to make a profit off of a deceased person, but the truck driver is going to suffer in his own right. As he recovers, he’s going to face:

  • Extensive medical bills
  • Lost wages due to time off of work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Possible permanent disability
  • And more

If you’ve been injured by a driver going the wrong way, you deserve compensation for the damages you’ve suffered. To get the compensation you deserve, consult an expert traffic accident attorney.
