Boating Accidents

Many people across the state of Nebraska enjoy boating with friends and family. Unfortunately, boating accidents occasionally happen due to the negligence of other people on the water. Boating accidents often involve one vessel slamming into another. These accidents can cause serious injuries to all involved. If you or a family member has been involved in a boating accident due to the negligence of another party, contact our experienced boat accident lawyers immediately so we can discuss providing you with legal representation.

Truck Accidents

Crashes involving commercial trucks traveling at high speeds on the highway can cause tremendous damage to the cars and motorcycles around them. A truck accident case in Nebraska can be complicated. Trucks have extensive insurance policies and many potentially liable parties.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are without question the least protected motorists on the road. No matter how state-of-the-art their equipment may be, very little will protect them against a larger vehicle, high speeds, and hard asphalt. Due to this, motorcycle accidents in Nebraska can often have catastrophic consequences for their victims. Considering that the majority of motorcycle accidents across the United States occur due to no fault of the cyclist, many of these cases require the experience of a motorcycle accident lawyer. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident near Omaha, contact us today for a free initial case evaluation.

Job-Related Injuries

Construction and road work are some of the most dangerous industries in the United States. Workers compensation is meant to help employees who have been hurt on the job site.

Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can alter a person’s life forever. Traumatic brain injuries can cause one to permanently lose memory, the ability to think for oneself, and can require lifelong care.

Catastrophic Injuries

Any accident can result in life-altering, catastrophic injuries. Whether it was a car accident, a slip and fall, or a defective product, you don’t deserve to suffer financially because of another person’s negligence.

Wrongful Death
