Boating Accidents

Boating Accidents.

Boating is a pastime of many Nebraskans, and occasionally accidents happen due to the negligence of others. Nebraska law requires the boat operator to file an accident report; and if unable to file this report, the owner of the boat is responsible for filing an accident report.

Animal Bites

Animal Bites.

Animals, no matter how domesticated, loyal and well-behaved, are ruled by instincts. Many have strong jaws and sharp teeth, and can sometimes be unpredictable. This combination can result in serious personal injuries, emotional trauma and even death.

Brain & Spine Injuries

Brain & Spine Injuries.

When the brain is injured it can have devastating effects, not only on the victim, but the loved one forced to deal with conflicting emotions, as well as the practical matters — doctors, insurance companies, loss of income and more.

Burn Accidents

Burn Injuries.

A burn injury can be one of the most traumatic personal injuries a person can suffer. The pain, discomfort and recovery process are intense and long lasting—requiring months, sometimes years, of hospitalization, doctor visits, physical therapy and extensive counseling to overcome the mental trauma.

Car Accidents

Car Accidents.

From fender benders to wrecks that cause life-altering catastrophic injuries such as brain, back, spinal cord and neck injuries, burns, bone fractures, paraplegia or quadriplegia, our lawyers are here to help you.

Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic Injuries.

At Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C., our Omaha catastrophic injury lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience. We understand how devastating such injuries can be, and we work with physicians, life care planning specialists and economists to make sure that your needs are properly assessed and compensated.

Faulty Products

Faulty Products.

From power tools to forklifts, tainted food to kitchen appliances, faulty products encompass a wide variety of manufactured goods. As attorneys, we must prove that the company that made the product either designed it poorly or put it together defectively.

Job-Related Injuries

Job-Related Injuries.

Each year, many Nebraska workers are killed or seriously injured while at work. Because employers and insurance companies want to reduce costs, the majority of first-time applicants do not receive their full benefits.

Long-Term Disability

Long-Term Disability.

At Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C. we not only fight aggressively to protect your rights to receive benefits, we actively prosecute bad faith denials and wrongful terminations of long-term disability claims—both of which are, sadly, all too common.

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice.

When you or a loved one is sick or hurt, it can be difficult to know how to protect your rights as a patient. At Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, our Omaha medical malpractice lawyers not only advocate for your rights but will help you handle all of the challenging medical, emotional and legal questions surrounding your case.

Slip & Fall Injuries

Slip & Fall Injuries.

If you experience injuries on the property of another person or organization due to unsafe or dangerous conditions, the property owner may be held liable for your injury, and you may be entitled to compensatory damages for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and the treatment of your injuries.

Truck Accidents

Truck Accidents.

A traffic accident that involves a semitruck and a car is often catastrophic. Sorting out all the details of the accident takes a law firm with in-depth understanding of trucking laws as well as personal injury laws. At Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C., our Omaha truck accident lawyers have that experience.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death.

When you are grieving over the wrongful death of a loved one, it is difficult to deal with all the problems and uncertainties involved. At Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop, P.C., our Omaha wrongful death lawyers take care of the work and see to the details.
