Personal Injury

Unfortunately, most if not all of us are injured at some point in our life. But when an injury you have sustained is at the fault of someone else, they should be held accountable. Here at Harrison Smith Law, our team is experienced, and we pride ourselves on taking on the major companies and insurance companies to ensure you are fully compensated for your loss. Our goal is to protect your rights and make you as close to whole again as the law will allow.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

In 2019, there were more than 400,000 reported automobile crashes in Florida, with an average of 1,101 per day. Many of us see a motor vehicle accident almost every time we drive. We want everyone safe, but we understand that one can do everything possible to avoid an accident and still end up injured at the fault of someone else. Protect yourself! This begins now by ensuring you have adequate insurance coverage. But your first steps following a motor vehicle accident are no less  crucial. Take the guesswork out of the process and hire an experienced team of legal professionals to ensure that you are adequately compensated for all injuries that occur as a result.

The insurance companies are not going to do what is best for you so you need someone that will represent your best interests. If you have been injured in a car/truck/motorcycle accident at the fault of someone else, whether you were the driver or passenger, in a personal vehicle or a ride sharing vehicle such as Uber or Lyft, please contact us immediately.    

Wrongful Death

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult things we are ever forced to confront. When a death is caused by the negligence or wrongful act of another person or other entity, survivors of the decedent may file a claim. This allows for said survivors to potentially recover damages for funeral expenses, the loss of support and services, and mental/emotional pain and suffering. It is important that you choose an attorney that is not only experienced with wrongful death suits in Florida, but one you can also trust to support and advise you through this very difficult and painful ordeal. If you have recently lost a loved one and think it was caused by someone else’s wrongful act or negligence, contact us immediately for a free consultation.

Premise Liability

Premise liability claims include incidents like Slip or Trip and Falls, claims dealing with Negligent Security, etc. Property owners generally have some threshold of duty to keep their premises reasonably safe and/or to warn of known dangers that may be present. If you or someone you know was injured on someone else’s property, the property owner and/or person responsible for maintaining said property may be responsible for your injuries. Premise liability claims are difficult to prove and your trusted attorneys will need to start collecting relevant evidence immediately, so do not delay and call us today for a free consultation.

Other Negligence

If you have suffered an injury due to the fault or negligence of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. In addition to the areas listed above, this can include dog bites and other animal attacks; injuries while at work; intentional acts—i.e. assault and battery; medical malpractice; injuries caused by a product, etc. 

Contract Formation and Disputes

Whether you are looking for an aggressive attorney with contractual experience to draft a contract for you or your business, have been wronged by someone due to their violation or breach of an already executed contract, or you are in the entertainment industry or otherwise desire ongoing representation for the formation and/or review of your contracts and agreements, Harrison Smith is your one-stop shop. We have represented both small and large talent and management and helped businesses from inception. It is always best practice to have an attorney review binding documents beforehand to ensure your interests are protected under every area of law

Civil Rights

An essential component of democracy and basic civil rights are protections under the law. Everyone should have equal social and economic opportunities regardless of race, religion, gender, sex, national origin, or other personal characteristics. As a citizen, everyone has the right to be free from discrimination, the freedom of religion and speech, and the right to procedural due process. Some common civil rights violations that Harrison Smith Law can assist you with, include the following: police brutality, excessive force, unlawful search and seizures, workplace discrimination, sexual assault, and hate crimes. If you think your rights have been violated, contact us and let our attorneys work for you  in the pursuit of justice.

Civil Litigation

Our team prides itself on being for the people and taking on any adversary, regardless of how “big” they may be. Hiring a team that is experienced with the ins and outs of the many aspects of civil litigations is crucial. Almost every legal matter is governed by some statute of limitation, which acts as a statutory deadline that limits the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit.  This is why we suggest that you contact an attorney immediately to ensure you are not time barred against pursuing what would otherwise be a valid claim.
