Personal Injury Practice Areas

Lloyd and Alexander Hoffspiegel devote their legal practice to helping people who have been injured or lost loved ones as a result of someone else’s negligence or intentional actions. That takes the form of a few core practices areas that we know well and are prepared to fully litigate on behalf of our clients. There is some overlap among these practice areas. For example, a wrongful death claim may arise out of a car accident or result from medical malpractice.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents and other types of motor vehicle accidents are among the most common causes of personal injury in Georgia. We help people who have been injured in car accidents that were wholly or partially someone else’s fault, whether the injured part was the driver of another car, a passenger in either car, a pedestrian, motorcyclist or bicyclist.

Truck Accidents

Although truck accidents are motor vehicle accidents, pursuing a truck accident injury claim is somewhat different and often more complex than a car accident case. Injuries may be more extensive and enduring because of the size and weight of a semi-tractor trailer or other large truck, and complicated federal regulations may apply. In addition, identifying the party or parties responsible for the accident may be more complex where the accident involves a commercial driver. Unlike many general personal injury firms, we have the knowledge, experience and commitment required to prosecute a truck accident claim, in Georgia and throughout the Southeast.

Premises Liability

The owner or other party with control over land and/or buildings has an obligation to maintain those premises in a safe manner. Premises liability claims arise in two different ways:

  • When physical conditions create a risk that causes injury, such as a broken stair or an environmental contaminant
  • When management of an apartment complex or other business open to the public fails to provide appropriate security despite known risks
  • If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property because it wasn’t properly maintained or secured, we can help.

    Medical Malpractice

    Being injured through another person’s negligence is often traumatic, but that impact is worse when the person who harms you is a physician or other medical professional you have trusted to use his or her professional expertise to help you. We help people who have been injured through medical malpractice win the compensation they need to rebuild their lives.

    Wrongful Death

    A wrongful death claim may arise from any of the circumstances described above, or through any type of negligence or criminal act. If you have lost a spouse, parent or child to someone else’s negligent or intentional act, or represent the estate of a person who died as the result of such conduct, contact our office today to learn more about your options and how we can help.

    Sexual Abuse

    Sexual abuse can have a lifelong impact, particularly because the perpetrator is often a trusted authority figure. Taking legal action against your abuser can help you reclaim your life in more ways than one. In addition to recovering actual damages and ensuring the financial ability to pursue therapy or other treatment, and confronting the abuser allows you to take back control. However, not all personal injury firms are equipped to effectively pursue a sexual abuse claim. The attorneys at Hoffspiegel & Associates have the unique combination of knowledge, skills, experience and compassion necessary to help you assert your rights.
