Board-Certified and Recognized for Excellence in Personal Injury Law
Scott Smith is a board-certified civil trial attorney, focused exclusively in the area of personal injury law. He has represented injury victims in cases involving every type of loss, including catastrophic injuries like traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury, as well as injuries involving defective products and medical malpractice. Many of these cases have resulted in million-dollar settlements and verdicts, double and triple the amounts generally offered by insurance companies when injury victims don’t have strong legal representation.
Proven Results in a Wide Range of Personal Injury Matters
Personal injuries can result from endless scenarios and circumstances. However, the cases we handle most often at Scott Smith Injury Law involve motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and—their water equivalent —boating accidents. Undeniably, drivers make numerous and frequent bad decisions behind the wheel, from speeding to cellphone use to driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, causing avoidable collisions and injuries as a result. But we don’t handle car accident cases simply because they are numerous. We care about holding negligent and reckless drivers accountable for their actions, which in many cases have significantly changed and devastated our clients’ lives.
Our firm also handles personal injury cases involving premises liability, products liability, and medical malpractice. Premises liability claims include slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, and other injuries resulting from poorly maintained and/or hazardous property. If you or a loved one was injured or became ill due to a dangerous or defective product, you may have a products liability claim against the parties responsible for releasing the product into the marketplace. And for medical malpractice, we’re looking at injuries and illnesses caused by a medical professional’s mistake or oversight, such as surgical errors, misdiagnoses, and birth injuries.
With all these types of accidents, the most disastrous and overwhelming outcome is the death of a family member. At Scott Smith Injury Law, our Palm Beach County & Treasure Coast personal injury lawyers help families recover fair compensation in the event of a wrongful death, with a thorough understanding of Florida wrongful death law and utmost sensitivity to our clients’ grief.
