Weston Smith Law, serving Floridians in and around St. Petersburg, concentrates its practice on a few areas of law, giving it the laser focus that can make a dramatic difference in the outcome of your case. At our firm, this concentration along with the fact that we take on only a limited number of cases that we know we can fully service, puts our clients at a major advantage. Our firm is dedicated to achieving maximum compensation for you which is why we emphasize these limits. These factors also allow us to give you the kind of one-on-one personalized attention that you will likely not find at large corporate firms where your access to representation gets shuffled to junior associates and/or paralegals.
When you work with Weston Smith Law, you will be dealing exclusively with Attorney Weston Smith. Attorney Smith has been practicing law since 1992 and has decades of courtroom experience that can be used in your favor. Our priority is that you find some comfort and resolution through the legal process after you have undeservedly sustained injuries or lost a loved one through negligence. That is why we apply all of our legal capability to help you achieve the best possible result whether through a negotiated settlement or in court.
We handle the follow cases for clients in and around St. Petersburg as well as across the state:
- Medical malpractice, which takes place when a hospital, clinic, doctor, or medical professional causes some type of injury to a patient through a negligent action or failure to act. This is done by deviating from what is considered standard treatment in the profession. It applies to all medical, dental, and mental health professionals.
- Nursing home negligence/abuse, which occurs when residents of these facilities sustain physical, psychological, or financial harm due to the negligent or deliberate actions of nursing home staff ranging from nursing assistants to caregivers to nurses.
- Wrongful death, which occurs when families lose a loved one through the negligent or malicious actions of others. One of the most common causes of wrongful death occurs in traffic accidents by careless, reckless, or drunk drivers.
- Catastrophic injuries, which are those that result in permanent disability, disfigurement, or dysfunction of a body part, altering the victim’s lifestyle and quality of life. They also result in often staggering medical and out-of-pocket expenses.
- Spinal cord injuries, which involve the severing or damage to a part of the spinal cord or its nerves leading to permanent disability below the affected area. Paraplegia and quadriplegia (forms of paralysis) are a common result of these types of injuries.
- Personal Injury, in which you have been injured due to the negligence of another party or combination of parties. These injuries lead to physical, emotional, and financial damage and losses. They can be caused by another person, persons, business, corporation, or government entity.
