Mercer County Personal Injury Attorney | Personal Injury Lawyer

Mercer County Personal Injury Attorney

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), every year 214,000 people die from injury and violence and for every person that dies, there are 13 people hospitalized and 129 people treated in the emergency room. The National Safety Council reports that the number one cause of unintentional death among adults is poisoning. This is driven by unintentional drug overdose mainly from prescription painkillers. These facts may be startling, but they are not surprising to the best personal injury lawyers.

Our personal injury attorneys at SMT Legal know how devastating personal injury can be to victims and their loved ones. Injuries range from short term inconveniences to permanent disability and sometimes death. Besides coping with the injuries themselves, medical treatment associated with the injuries can be financially crippling for some families. For these reasons, our attorneys are aggressive advocates for personal injury victims whose injuries were caused by someone else’s negligent, reckless, or intentional fault.

Types of personal injury cases

Our attorneys have secured multimillion-dollar recoveries for our personal injury clients and their families. Common causes that we see include the following:

SMT Legal recoveries

Our personal injury attorneys care more about seeing our injured clients secure full financial recoveries for their injuries and damages than we do about the actual dollar amount of the case. This is why our recoveries for clients range from thousands of dollars to millions of dollars. We believe everyone deserves personal injury advocates, not just the high dollar cases.

Recovery options including wrongful death

In personal injury cases caused by someone else’s fault, plaintiffs are entitled to full and fair compensation. Injuries and damages that may be recovered include, but are not limited to, lost wages, lost future earnings, property damage, medical costs, future medical costs, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. Punitive damages are sometimes awarded in cases that involved a defendant’s egregious conduct.

When injuries are fatal, the decedent’s estate and close family members may have two recovery options depending on the circumstances. A wrongful death claim is meant to compensate the victim’s family for the losses they sustained due to losing their loved ones. A survival action may be brought on behalf of the decedent’s estate for the injuries and damages he or she suffered in the accident that caused his or her death.
