Personal Injury Damages

A Dependable Columbus Personal Injury Lawyer Who Is Committed to Clients

At the Smith Law Office, we believe it's our job to help the injured recover financially for their losses. At the same time, we want to help you recover emotionally and physically. We know how important it is to get your life back in order. If you're dealing with severe injuries due to negligence, or a loved one was injured or killed in an accident, you can get justice. We can help you recover.

While no amount of money can bring back a loved one who died or restore the ability to walk for someone who was paralyzed, we can apply the law to hold the negligent individual or parties accountable.

Attorney Scott Elliot Smith helps clients pursue personal injury damages when they are harmed by intentional or negligent acts. "Damages" is the legal term to describe the money you may receive to compensate for your losses. Depending on the circumstances of your personal injury, you may be eligible for different types of damages, including medical expenses, loss of wages and pain and suffering, among others.

Some of the most common types of damages awarded in personal injury lawsuits include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of consortium
  • Medical expenses

Personal injury damages may be awarded for any number of negligent events, from car and truck accidents to medical malpractice to slip and fall accidents. If you or a loved one was injured, don't delay taking action. Your right to compensation may be affected by the statute of limitations, which limits the amount of time you have to file claims for most cases.
