Springfield Personal Injury Attorneys

Injured in an Accident? Call for a Free Consultation!

Why is choosing the right Springfield personal injury lawyer so important? A catastrophic injury does much more than harm your physical and emotional health. It also severely compromises your financial stability – especially when long-term medical costs, caregiver expenses, and income losses can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands — or even millions — of dollars.

At The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm, each attorney on our team is dedicated to fighting for our clients’ rights. We meticulously analyze, document, and organize the incurred and projected costs and losses associated with a personal injury, and demand that those responsible are held to account. Whereas others often rely on little more than ineffective intimidation tactics and pointless legal maneuvers, we build all of our cases on a rock-solid foundation of facts and figures – and that makes all of the difference at the negotiating table or in court.

We have helped to successfully recover millions of dollars in compensation for our clients and can provide the guidance and experience that injury victims need while making a compensation claim.

To find out how we can help you, call us today at (217) 394-5885 or fill out our online contact form. Your initial consultation is free and private.
