Wrongful Death

Jackson Fatal Accident Attorney

At the Smith Law Firm, PLLC, we built our successful practice on a commitment to persistence and hard work. We
have always focused exclusively on personal injury claims.

Unlike many firms, we don’t take on a lot of cases with the intention of settling as many as we can. We prepare every case with the expectation of going to trial, and we have had many successes in court, including many million-dollar judgments. We understand the emotional challenges you face after the death of a family member and will provide you with effective, aggressive and compassionate counsel.

Our Wrongful Death Practice

We handle all legal matters that arise when you have lost a loved one because of the carelessness or negligence of another person. We will prepare and file all documents necessary to pursue damages in court and will be your advocate in all hearings or proceedings throughout the process. We can also assist you when insurance companies engage in efforts to delay, diminish or deny a death benefit claim.

Because of our considerable experience, we can handle wrongful death lawsuits related to any type of incident, including:

  • Exposure to silica or talc
  • Cancer resulting from benzene or other toxic substances (mesothelioma or lung cancer)
  • Chemical exposure
  • 18-wheeler and commercial truck accidents
  • Dangerous and defective products
  • Occupational diseases

Because we have successfully handled many wrongful death claims, we have solid working relationships with expert witnesses such as financial experts. We can work with them to prepare and present evidence to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses, from the loss of financial support to any pain and suffering your loved one incurred before death to the costs of funeral and burial expenses.
