If you have been hurt due to the negligent actions of another person, we can assist you in obtaining compensation for your injuries. Whether you have been involved in a car accident, injured by a medical professional’s lapse of judgment or a defectively manufactured consumer product, we can determine whether the law provides a remedy for you against the other driver, the health care professional, or the maker of the product.

Spitler Huffman, LLP has extensive experience in negotiating and litigating personal injury and negligence claims. Our experience allows us to assist clients in properly evaluating the merits of a claim, advise clients regarding potential settlement options, and ultimately, to prepare and present the case to a judge or jury. The personal injury attorneys of our firm have successfully represented clients in asserting various types of claims, such as:

Motor Vehicle Accidents. Catastrophic motor vehicle accidents, ranging from car collisions to motorcycle crashes to truck accidents, can result in chronic pain and rapidly increasing medical expenses. Too often, insurance companies do not reward the full amount needed to compensate for such injuries. Our attorneys will use the considerable resources at our disposal to determine the extent of your injuries and your potential for recovery, working with accident reconstruction experts, medical professionals and your own treating physicians. If you or a loved one have sustained injuries, our auto accident lawyers can skillfully assess the injuries and obtain the appropriate compensation.

Premises Liability (aka slip and fall cases). When unsafe property causes serious injury, the owner of the property is liable. Dangerous conditions could include standing water, loose handrails, broken cement and bad lighting in a retail establishment, the common area of an apartment or at the entrance to another’s home. Such oversights can cause an individual to trip, fall and sustain injuries ranging from broken bones to permanent disabilities caused by pinched nerves, spinal cord damage or head trauma. Working with medical professionals, our personal injury lawyers know how to prove in court that a property condition was the cause of a severe medical problem.

Our experience extends far beyond these three categories of harm. If you have been hurt at the hands of another, please do not hesitate to contact our firm as many injuries have a time deadline by which you must file a lawsuit.
