Last week, on Tuesday, October 20, 2015, a man was traveling on Highway
75 when he potentially experienced a mechanical issue with his truck and
a tire blew out causing him to lose control. Mycal Huff, 19, was driving
his truck northbound and lost control of his vehicle, swerving in the
accident caused the truck to rollover multiple times and Huff was ejected from
After the accident, Huff was taken to Nebraska Medical Center in critical
condition. He later died. With an aspiration for a career in the military,
or as a police officer or firefighter, Huff was involved in the junior
ROTC program at Bellevue East. It is unknown whether Huff was wearing
a seat belt and the accident is under investigation.
If the cause of the accident was due to some mechanical error or issue
with the tire, it is possible that Huff’s family can take legal
action in the form of a wrongful death claim. It is important to determine
the cause of the accident so the liable party can be identified. This
is where Nebraska wrongful death lawyers can be of service.
If the truck had mechanical defects, the manufacturer may be liable for
the accident. The victim’s family can take legal action against
the liable party to help cover damages related to the accident such as
medical costs, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
