You're likely dealing with insurance companies, doctors, police, courts and others. They see cases like yours every day. To them, you're just another faceless number.

You need to hire the services of Columbus personal injury lawyer Scott Elliot Smith.

Columbus personal injury attorney Scott Elliot Smith can help you pursue compensation for your losses, but he realizes your case is about more than just money. It’s about justice. It’s about making sure you get the attention you rightfully deserve. It’s about helping you get back to the place you were prior to the injury. That’s where a car accident lawyer can make a real difference.

Should I settle my injury claim or file a lawsuit?

Don’t be surprised if the at-fault party’s insurance company makes a settlement offer soon after your Columbus accident. You might be tempted to accept such a financial offer and just be done with your legal case.

But it’s important to carefully consider all your options. And one of your options is filing a lawsuit seeking damages, the legal term for financial compensation awarded to injury victims.

Knowing whether to accept a settlement offer, negotiate a better offer with the at-fault party’s insurance company or file a lawsuit in court is never an easy decision. That’s why it’s important to talk about your options with an experienced Columbus personal injury lawyer you can trust.

How much money is my case worth?

There’s no set dollar amount when it comes to injury claims in Ohio. Sometimes, your case might be worth a few thousand dollars. Other times, you might be eligible to receive significantly more money.

The bottom line is you should be paid for all your accident-related expenses if someone else caused your injury. That’s how the legal system works in Ohio. If someone caused your accident, they should pay for all your injury-related bills.

Ohio law also places a strict deadline on taking legal action after an accident. In Ohio, you only have two years from the date of your injury in most cases to file a personal injury lawsuit. Don’t miss out on your opportunity for justice. Talk to a Columbus attorney right away.

How much does it cost to hire a Columbus personal injury lawyer?

You might think you can’t afford to hire one of the best Columbus personal injury attorneys to handle your legal case. But the reality is you don’t have to spend any money upfront out of your own pocket to hire a lawyer. That’s because Scott Smith works on a contingency fee basis.

This arrangement means you only have to pay our Columbus law firm if we obtain a financial settlement or verdict for you. If we don’t obtain any money for your injury, you don’t owe us a penny. We work this way because we believe injury victims should only have to pay for results. Your best interests always come first here.
