Grand Island Auto Accident Attorneys
When auto accidents occur, the trauma that victims sustain can change or end their lives. Crowded roadways and distracted or fatigued drivers can lead to an increased number of car crashes across the nation and in our home state of Nebraska.
A report by the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety shows that in 2012, Hall County’s population of 58,771 was almost met by its number of licensed drivers; 43,818. Hall County, which contains Grand Island, saw 63 auto accidents resulting in disabling injuries and 177 that resulted in harm that was serious but not life threatening.
Also in 2012, the state of Nebraska saw 212 fatalities as a result of auto accidents. The potential for auto accident injuries in Grand Island are great, since Hall County Traffic data cites 356 instances of accidents that resulted in possible injury to vehicle occupants.

Common Causes of Auto Accidents
Each situation surrounding a car accident will contain its own contributing factors, but there are many scenarios that recur across county and state borders. In many cases, what caused the crash is a combination of negligence and poor decisions, as by definition, accidents are usually preventable.
Some of the most common causes of auto accidents include:
- Distracted drivers
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Fatigued drivers
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Inexperienced drivers
- Poor driving conditions
- Vehicle malfunction
- …to name a few.
Unfortunately, there is no end to the factors that can contribute to an auto accident, and with more portable electronic devices hitting the market daily, distracted driving accidents are taking on epidemic proportions.
When drivers are educated about the potential dangers they may meet on Nebraska roads and highways, they can prepare to drive defensively. The best way to escape an auto accident is to do everything in your power to avoid one in the first place. Being responsible for yourself, your vehicle and your occupants is the number one priority when you get into the driver’s seat, so always exercise caution and drive with patience.
Grand Island Driver Negligence
If you or a loved one were involved in an auto accident and the injuries you sustained were the result of another driver’s negligent, careless or reckless behavior, you may be entitled to compensation based on the medical expenses you incurred. Additionally, our attorneys realize that, in cases of serious auto accidents, physical pain can be the tip of the iceberg in dealing with the aftermath of the crash.
Mental trauma can manifest in many forms, including stress, anxiety, depression, isolation, or even survivor’s guilt following a crash-related fatality. Suffering in silence will not help you or your loved one cope with these stresses, but filing an auto accident claim can help bring closure to the circumstances and assist you with much needed compensation to pay for any expenses you incurred.
