Practice Areas

Car Accidents

Being in a car wreck can unhinge your life and make it difficult to provide for your loved ones. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you should know that filing a car accident lawsuit in the state of Nebraska may allow you to receive compensation that can make the task of recovery possible. Find out more here.

Truck Accidents

Semi trucks and 18-wheelers cause some of the most devastating accidents on our state’s highways. If you’ve been involved in a serious truck accident, you may be able to seek compensation that can help pay for your medical bills, loss of wage costs, and more. We can make our roads safer.

Motorcycle Accident

Have you been involved in a motorcycle accident with a larger, heavier vehicle? There’s a good chance your injuries are serious. If the accident was not your fault, you might be able to file a lawsuit against the other driver, thereby allowing you to receive financial compensation and help provide for your family during this rough time.

Wrongful Death

When we lose a family member in an accident or incident that wasn’t our loved one’s fault, it can be difficult to move on. When we’re faced with this situation, we have legal options. A wrongful death lawsuit will not bring back a loved one, but it may give a family peace of mind as well as ensure the guilty party doesn’t make the same mistake again. Learn more here.

Syngenta Litigation

Syngenta, a Swiss agricultural corporation, mislead Nebraska corn producers about the status of corn exports to China. If your business was financially affected by this decision and used Syngenta corn seed, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the corporation. Learn more about the pending lawsuits here.

Medical Malpractice

When a doctor, nurse, or other type of medical professional administers a wrong type of medication, performs a misdiagnosis, or otherwise makes a mistake that injures a patient, U.S. citizens have a legal right to file a lawsuit against the individual or institution. Doing so helps medical facilities nationwide improve their training procedures and staffing protocols, reducing the total amount of mistakes that occur every year. Learn more here.

Premises Liability

If you are seriously injured on someone else’s property due to the negligence of the property owner, you can get the financial help you need by filing a premises liability claim against the owner. These types of lawsuits are difficult to fight in court, but can succeed with the right lawyer on your side. Read more to learn how these lawsuits work.

Nursing Home Abuse

Are our elderly loved ones safe in Nebraska’s nursing homes and long term care facilities? They should be. Unfortunately, the combination of understaffing and poor employee policies sometimes results in nursing home staff members who are negligent or abusive to residents. If you believe your loved one is in danger, here’s how you can fight back.

Product Liability

When we buy a product whether it be a drug, food, electronic device, healthcare item, toy, or vehicle, we trust that it will be safe and not harm us. When we become injured or suffer due to a defective product, we have a legal right to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer or retailer who caused the defect. For more information, find out about product liability lawsuits.

Bair Hugger Warming Blankets

If you’ve suffered from a severe infection after having orthopedic surgery such as joint replacement surgery, you may be able to file a Bair Hugger warming blanket lawsuit against the manufacturer. New reports are suggesting that 3M Bair Hugger warming blankets– one of the most popular surgical warming blankets used nationwide– may potentially allow bacteria to become airborne and exposed to the patient. Here’s how you can take legal action against 3M.

Ethicon Physiomesh Hernia Mesh

If you’ve had hernia repair surgery since 2010, it’s possible that your surgeon used a Physiomesh hernia patch. Ethicon’s Physiomesh hernia mesh can lead to serious complications such as adhesions and painful infections. Protect yourself by getting in touch with Welsh & Welsh. We can file a lawsuit against Ethicon on your behalf and ensure you get the compensation you need to have a full recovery.

Drug Litigation

Our over-the-counter and prescription drugs are supposed to help us– not harm us. When we suffer due to negative side effects from a new drug on the market, we have a legal right to file a drug litigation claim against the manufacturer of the drug. Doing so may help protect others from getting harmed in the same way. Learn the facts about dangerous drug litigation lawsuits here.

Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Back and spinal cord injuries are common after a serious car crash. Without the proper medical care, a back or spinal cord injury can lead to lifelong pain, impaired movement, and other serious consequences. If your spinal cord or back was injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to file a claim against the guilty party. Learn more here.

Burn Injuries

Serious burns may result in a painful recovery, multiple surgeries and/or skin grafts, scarring, and even infection and/or death. If you’ve experienced serious burn injuries as a result of a car wreck or other type of accident that wasn’t your fault, legal help may be available to you.

Head and Brain Injuries

When you sustain an injury to the head, your sensitive brain tissue is at risk for becoming irreversibly damaged. If you’ve experienced a head injury, TBI, or MTBI/concussion that resulted in lasting damage, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the individual who caused the accident. Find out the details here.

Dog Bites

All pet owners have a responsibility to protect visitors from their animals. If you were attached and injured by an unprovoked dog, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the dog’s owner. Dog bite lawsuits can be quite complex in the state of Nebraska, however, so make sure you’re aware of all the facts before filing a claim.

Mesothelioma

If you were diagnosed with mesothelioma and worked or lived in a setting in which you were exposed to asbestos, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the company you worked for if they knew about the existence of asbestos. Mesothelioma is a dangerous type of cancer and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Get the help you need today.
