The Latest Version of Lightroom supports the RAW files from Nikon D5500, so you should not face any issues editing the RAW files.

You are Welcome, Glad to help.
I'm currently running the latest version of Lightroom CC (2015.4 with camera raw 9.4).
I own a Nikon 5100 and I'm somewhat frequently getting issues with a few NEF files in Lightroom.
Usually part of the image, from 30% to 60% of the image, appears with distorted colors as if light information was partially available or inconsistent for that section of the image.
If I open the same NEF file using Nikon's ViewNX-i software, Nikon's official RAW handling software, I see the image properly.
Is there any known issues with Nikon 5100 NEF files?
Here is a sample image with the issue I mentioned above: Dropbox - Screenshot 2016-02-11 18.41.14.png
Any help would be appreciated.
This is a hardware malfunction, causing file corruption. When Lightroom tries to read the file, it encounters the corruption and then displays the corruption. The reason other software doesn't show the corruption is that it is showing the JPG preview in the file, which is often not corrupted.
You need to try different hardware or even an entirely different computer to see if you can isolate the malfunctioning piece of hardware. The problem could be anywhere, camera card, card reader or USB cable/USB Port, hard disk or memory.
