Motorcycle AccidentsMotorcycle Accidents

It is not easy for a motorcycle rider to get a fair shake when he or she has been injured in a crash with a car or truck in Nebraska. Insurance adjusters will be reluctant to pay out the large amount of money the biker will need to recover, and judges and juries often side with the driver of the car when a motorcyclist claims negligence. A rider who has been injured in a crash that was not his fault needs an attorney on his side who understands the complexity of these cases and has the experience needed to win them.

Attorney Matt Lathrop represents motorcycle riders in Nebraska and Iowa who have had difficulty getting fair treatment from the insurance company or legal system. He and his team believe in a biker’s right to a full and fair recovery when a negligent driver caused the crash that left him seriously injured.

Amusement Park AccidentsAmusement Park Accidents

Like owners of any public place, operators of amusement parks, theme parks, carnivals, and fairs have a duty to provide a safe environment for visitors. If they fail in that duty and a visitor is injured on a malfunctioning ride, by tripping and falling on a hazardous surface, or even in an attack in a dark parking lot, the park should be held accountable. While they may try to offer a quick settlement to get you off their backs, you should not agree to anything until you have talked to a premises liability attorney.

As an experienced and aggressive trial attorney, Matt Lathrop is not afraid to take on an amusement park—no matter how many lawyers they have. He will not let a park owner take advantage of you by offering a quick, undervalued settlement. Our personal injury team will gather the evidence needed to prove liability and will take the claim to trial if necessary. Not many Nebraska personal injury attorneys are litigators, but Matt prepares every case for trial and will not back down until he gets what is best for his client. Not sure if you have a case? Call us to find out!

Wrongful DeathWrongful Death

When another person’s negligence causes the death of a loved one, survivors may be able to take steps to hold that person accountable for their actions. With the help of an experienced wrongful death attorney, the family of the victim may be compensated for their losses. Omaha trial attorney Matthew A. Lathrop has helped dozens of grieving families bring careless or negligent parties to justice when a loved one was killed in a senseless accident.

A wrongful death lawsuit may be an option when an accident that would have led to a personal injury claim by the victim instead causes the victim’s death. A claim may be brought to recover some of the losses that have been suffered. No amount of money can bring back a loved one who has been tragically killed, but a wrongful death suit can make the negligent party pay and help families overcome financial struggles caused by the loss. If you lost a loved one in a vehicle crash or other tragic accident, contact our Omaha law office to find out if we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim.

Trial Prep Focus GroupsTrial Prep Focus Groups

Even the most experienced lawyer can't always predict how a jury will react to evidence, witnesses, and legal arguments. A Lathrop Law Focus Group allows attorneys to hear directly from registered voters who make up the jury pool. We can take some of the guesswork out of litigation and help you anticipate how best to represent your client.

While Lathrop Law Focus Groups are serious business for lawyers, they are also meaningful and enjoyable experiences for focus group participants. Our focus group participants are paid for their time and get to provide valuable feedback to lawyers who would not otherwise be able to get information directly from a jury pool.
