If you are looking for an Omaha-based or Council Bluffs personal injury attorney, we would like the opportunity to discuss your case and evaluate the damages you have suffered. If another person’s actions caused your injuries , then you may have a case for negligence in any of the following areas of our practice.

Personal Injury

In general, any lawsuit that seeks compensation for injuries caused by the fault of another person or business falls under the area of personal injury. This is the means for innocent victims to sue for damages from those who are at fault. You must show their actions caused your injuries and that you have actual damages from the negligent acts. Generally, you must show that the other person did not behave as a “reasonable” person would have under the circumstances. In that event we will help you reach a settlement or if necessary litigate your case in court.

Auto and Motorcycle Accidents

At Ausman Law Firm we have handled many accident cases where careless drivers were responsible for causing an accident. At times injuries can be significant and involve multiple vehicles. As long as the accident was primarily the fault of another driver, you may have a case for negligence and resulting damages against them or their insurance company.

Medical Malpractice

Medical doctors and other medical caregivers owe a duty of professional competence to the patients under their care. Failing to meet a physician’s standard of care can form the basis for a medical malpractice claim. Those acts can include misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose an illness, careless medical or surgical procedure, medical mistakes and failure to warn a patient of known risks. All of these injuries can cause lasting damage that is deserving of compensation.

Product Liability

Product liability claims arise when a product sold in the marketplace harms an individual. If a product has a defect in design or manufacture, or did not carry clear warnings, then a claim for product liability may be proven against the manufacturer for injuries. Ausman Law Firm is concerned about dangerous products injuring innocent victims, and will advocate for recovery from manufacturers and their insurance companies.

Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation provides payment for job-related injuries, illnesses, and diseases that cause a worker to seek medical care or miss work for a period of time. The employer or its insurance company pays those costs, and it is not necessary for the injured worker to establish the employer’s fault or negligence to make a claim. Sometimes the compensation may be denied or will be inadequate to pay your costs and expenses. Sometimes your employer may deny that you had a work-related injury or may disagree with the extent of earning loss that you have as a result of your injuries. If we disagree, we will seek a hearing before the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court or the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commissioner to have these issues resolved on your behalf.
