If you were in an accident recently, you may need help figuring out what to do or where to turn. The first thing to do is go to the doctor or ER to be examined. After that, you should speak to an attorney if you believe someone else was at fault. Learn about the types of cases we handle in this article. At Law Office of John V. O’Connor, our Wisconsin personal injury attorney can help if another person or entity has injured you.
Car accidents are the most common type of personal injury case in Wisconsin. If you were in a car accident, you could have severe injuries, property damages, and pain and suffering. Our attorneys will review the accident and your injuries and determine who was at fault for the crash.
Our personal injury attorney has an impressive record helping car accident victims because he knows what to look for. For example, you may think that you cannot receive compensation if the other driver is uninsured. This is usually not true; your auto accident policy should have uninsured and underinsured coverage that our attorney can tap to pay your damages.
Pedestrian accidents are often severe because the person was unprotected and struck by a vehicle. When you are hit by a car as a pedestrian, you may have head and neck injuries, broken bones, cuts and scrapes, internal injuries, and disfigurement and scarring.
However, do not be surprised if the insurance company tries to blame you for the accident partially. Fortunately, personal injury attorney John V. O’Connor knows all the games insurance companies play, and he will field all calls from the insurance company and ensure that the blame for the accident is where it belongs.
When a property owner in Wisconsin does not maintain safety standards and injures someone, our personal injury attorney holds them accountable.

If you or a loved one was bitten by a dog owned by someone else, you should not suffer pain, injuries, and losses without compensation. Our attorneys have assisted many people who were seriously injured by dog bites. This state does not have a ‘first bite’ rule, so the dog owner has no excuse for an attack, unless the person trespassed on their property.
Some drivers believe that because motorcyclists ride without protection and may not even have a helmet, they are not entitled to the same rights as other drivers. But under state law, motorcyclists must be treated the same as other drivers. If someone hits and injures you on your motorcycle, Kenosha motorcycle accident attorney John V. O’Connor will research the accident and hold the negligent party accountable.
