Personal Injury + Wrongful Death

Perhaps you or a family member were seriously injured. Perhaps a loved one lost his or her life. It’s hard to know what to do and where to get help. We know, because we’ve been there with more than a thousand clients, dealing with everything from auto accidents to nursing home deaths.

When you’re facing a catastrophic personal injury or the loss of a loved one, you have the right to fierce, knowledgeable advocates who will listen to you, work to find the truth, and seek justice for you and your family. You have the right to allies who understand what you’re going through and can help.

Personal Injury + Wrongful Death Related Practices

Ward and Smith’s personal injury attorneys have been representing victims and victims’ families in cases involving traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, wrongful death, and other injuries for decades.

We believe victims and their families are entitled to the full compensation they’re owed under our legal system. We’ve pursued that belief all the way to jury trials more than 150 times, winning favorable decisions for clients. We’ll pursue it for you, too.

The results? Medical bills paid. Lost wages restored. Families compensated. Wrongs made right. Justice done.
