Motor Vehicle Accidents

Helping You Get Your Life Back Together After An Accident

Because most of us drive nearly every day, it is easy to forget how violent an auto accident can be. More important than the damage to vehicles involved is the harm drivers, passengers and pedestrians can suffer. In a few seconds, you can sustain a severe injury. It is common for a car wreck to cause brain injuries, back injuries, and other harm that can leave you paralyzed or severely disabled.

The attorneys at the Southern Pines, North Carolina, law firm of West & Smith LLP have been representing car accident victims in surrounding areas like Richmond County, Scotland County and Lee County since 1975. Our firm's personalized attention shapes our skill and knowledge to your case to maximize your chances of getting the compensation you deserve after an auto wreck.

The damages we help you seek will help you pay your bills for medical care, rehabilitation and lost wages, so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Auto Accidents And Wrongful Death

In the worst auto accidents, somebody does not survive. If the death was the result of negligence, the victim's survivors may be able to sue for wrongful death. Potential damages from a successful wrongful death lawsuit can include pecuniary, or financial, damages, punitive damages and pain and suffering. Common pecuniary damages after a wrongful death include the loss of the deceased's financial support and parental support. Punitive damages are intended to punish especially malicious or egregious behavior.
