Personal Injury

Jackson Attorney for Occupational Diseases

At the Smith Law Firm, PLLC, we have concentrated our practice on personal injury since our inception. Attorney R. Allen Smith has more than 11 years of practice experience. We take every case with the expectation that we will go to trial. Even though many cases end up settling, this mindset allows us to be fully prepared for the courtroom when it is necessary. As a result, we have obtained many million and multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements.

An Overview of Our Personal Injury Practice

We focus our personal injury practice on cases involving serious or catastrophic loss, including brain injury or spinal cord injury, paralysis, burns, broken bones, and amputation or loss of limb. We also represent people who have lost a family member as a result of a wrongful death. Throughout our history, the bulk of our practice has centered around claims involving silica or particulates. We have extensive experience successfully handling silicosis claims as well as lawsuits for injuries related to mesothelioma. We pioneered litigation seeking damages for health problems caused by exposure to talcum powder. These cases involve claims for damages for occupational lung diseases, including lung cancer.

We also handle catastrophic injury claims arising out of:

Chemical exposure — from lead paint to industrial acids to benzene

Commercial vehicle accidents — We represent people who have been hurt as drivers, passengers or pedestrians in collisions with 18-wheelers, semis, tractor-trailers and big rigs.

Product liability — We handle injury lawsuits arising from exposure to or malfunction of dangerous or defective products.

Premises liability — We will help you seek damages if you have been hurt on someone else’s property because of negligence in the maintenance of the premises.
