Areas of Law Description
Our law firm can help you with legal problems in the following areas:
- Car Accidents
John O'Connor has a long track record of success in handling car accident cases because he knows what to look for. A common misconception is that if the other driver doesn't have insurance, or if his or her insurance is inadequate, you have no recourse. This is not true. Your own insurance policy is designed to cover you and your injuries, whether they recover from the other driver or not. We will look at your current coverage to see what benefits you have on your own policy, then we will examine the circumstances of the accident and what kind of coverage the other driver possesses. Part of the reason we are so successful is because John used to do insurance defense so he knows the opposition and its tactics very well.
- Car Accidents Caused by Texting & Cellphone Use
We have handled many cases involving distracted driving and we know how to investigate them properly. Because of the nature of electronics, we are able to track when they were used by the distracted driver prior to the accident. We use this information to prove credibility on the part of a nondistracted driver if there are conflicting reports.
- Car Accidents Caused by Drunk or Drugged Drivers
We will investigate your accident, determine who was legally at fault and present a demand for payment to the insurance company. If the insurance company chooses not to pay for the damage done to you, we will take your case to trial. John O'Connor used to defend insurance companies so he knows the tricks that they use to avoid paying accident victims. He will advocate aggressively for you to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.
- Pedestrian Accidents & Bicycle Accidents
Sharing the road with bicyclists and pedestrians is the law in Wisconsin. Unfortunately many drivers feel that as the "larger vehicle" they have right of way at all times. When an unprotected person is struck by a car, the damage done is much more severe than if that person had been in another vehicle. Injuries can be catastrophic and may include:
Head, neck and spine injuries
Traumatic brain injuries
Disfigurement and scarring
- Motorcycle Accidents
If you have been severely injured in a motorcycle accident, as the driver or as a passenger, or if you have lost a loved one who was involved in a motorcycle accident, we can help. John V. O'Connor has more than 35 years of experience as a trial lawyer and has successfully handled many motorcycle accident cases. He will be an aggressive advocate for you, gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, showing fault on the part of the other driver and presenting your case to the insurance company. If the insurance company is unwilling to compensate you appropriately for your injuries, John will take your case to court. He has a long track record of success in achieving justice for his clients in an ethical and responsible manner.
- Catastrophic Injuries

- Slip-and-Fall Accidents
Whether you slipped on the ice and hurt your back or you fell down the stairs and sustained catastrophic injuries when you tripped on a loose board, we will work hard to show fault on the part of the property owner. Many businesses now have closed circuit television cameras in their establishments, which allows us to see how long a dangerous condition was left before it was taken care of after someone had an accident. The cameras will also show if more than one person was injured by the property owner's failure to correct the situation. We use these video records to show fault on the part of the property owner and get you the compensation for your injuries that you are entitled to.
- Complex Civil Litigation & Breach of Contract
John V. O'Connor has more than 35 years of experience handling all kinds of civil litigation cases, including:
Failure of performance
Failure of manufacturing
John's in-depth knowledge of contract and business law will be invaluable as he works diligently to bring your case to a successful resolution. John is well-respected in legal circles and in our community as a lawyer who is honest, ethical and dedicated to the pursuit of justice for his clients.
