The Omaha attorneys at Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop have more than 100 years of combined experience in representing injury victims in Nebraska State and United States District trial courts. We provide zealous, ethical representation in jury trials as well as trials without juries. State court cases typically involve disputes between the residents of Nebraska, while federal court suits involve parties from different states, complex litigation, product liability lawsuits and claims involving federally protected rights, such as anti-discrimination cases.
Lawyer Referral Assistance
When the legal matter you bring to our office is outside of our area of expertise, we are happy to provide you with a referral to another attorney who will provide the same level of skill, knowledge and integrity you expect from our office. We can help you locate strong, competent representation in such areas as commercial litigation, estate planning, bankruptcy, criminal defense, real estate and almost all other areas of legal practice.
Once the case has been tried by a jury, you need that good result protected on appeal. Our office stays with your case through the appeals process to protect you and the result of your day in court. Our Omaha attorneys have been successful in arguing in front of the Nebraska Court of Appeals and the Nebraska Supreme Court on state trial issues. We have also fought for our clients in the federal courts at the Circuit Court of Appeals, protecting federally guaranteed rights and protections.
When you are ready to resolve your case, you need to know what the value of that claim is and what you may reasonably expect for compensation. Then you need a strong advocate to negotiate with the insurance companies. We take you through this process and are there to assist in all negotiations to ensure you receive what has been entitled to you by the courts. Our Omaha attorneys take the burden of advocating with the insurance companies, so you can focus on a healthy recovery.
Insurance Claims Management
Dealing with insurance hassles when you have been injured can be overwhelming. In some cases, an injured person can deal with more than six different insurance companies, each pointing the finger at another and requiring endless forms and paperwork to be completed before payments are made. Our Omaha attorneys will take over the hassles of insurance paperwork and phone calls on all types of insurance claims so you can focus on healing.
