Dealing With Insurance Companies

An Experienced Accident Attorney Serving Columbus and Central Ohio

We understand that paying medical bills and receiving compensation for lost wages are among an injury victim's immediate concerns after an accident in Ohio. Insurance companies, however, typically won't put your needs first. Their priority is profit, and as a result they often attempt to minimize compensation for injured victims. As your attorney, Scott Elliot Smith's job is to maximize the recovery on your claim.

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.

The Smith Law Office has a well-deserved reputation for being a strong advocate for victims' rights. Insurance companies know we will make sure they are held accountable for their obligation to compensate victims adequately for their severe injuries. Columbus accident lawyer Scott Elliot Smith can work to make sure insurance companies and negligent parties pay you the money you're owed for your injuries.

How An Attorney Can Help You With Your Insurance Claim

We stand up for our clients when insurance companies treat the injured unfairly. Bad faith insurance can happen when the insurance company does not follow through with its legal obligations. Scott Elliot Smith can help you pursue compensation for your losses when the insurance company is seemingly doing all it can to delay, deny or reduce your claim.

Many accident injury victims are concerned with getting their medical bills paid. When we investigate a client's car accident case, we analyze the types of insurance coverage our client carries to pursue the maximum compensation needed to pay for medical costs and other damages. If uninsured/underinsured drivers cause our client's accident, we can determine whether the client's uninsured driver coverage rider is suitable to make a claim for medical expenses.

Scott Elliot Smith always focuses on getting the facts first. He'll find out what really happened in your accident by reviewing documentation, interviewing witnesses and consulting experts, if needed. This allows him to build a strong case that you were the victim of another's negligence - a case that the insurance companies will be forced to take seriously.
