is there a way for me to look up verbs to find out what case nouns following it have to use?

I'm afraid it's not that easy in the Polish language -- too many exceptions. Unless a professional translator would offer a hint on how to do that..

I just took a loog at the PWN Polish Dictionary. Normally the information you're looking for is there but it's not directly mentioned. It's described in terms of the word "something/someone", like cases.

to wait - czekać.... na coś/na kogoś
you have these little clauses that do give an answer, but in order to understand them you need to understand to which questions the cases answer, which is pain in the butt.
