Negligence is at the heart of most personal injury matters. It can include:

  • A manufacturer that allows a defective product on the market
  • A driver who hits and kills a pedestrian
  • A landlord whose improper maintenance results in the death or catastrophic injury of a resident.

Regardless of the nature of the case, Gillam & Smith has the expertise to hold the negligent parties accountable and help our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries–all while protecting individuals from the same thing happening in the future.

Our clients have included:

  • Family members of a woman who fell from an apartment balcony to her death,
  • A woman who was raped in her apartment because her landlord failed to provide proper security
  • The family of an 8-year-old boy who was shot and killed by another child in a private home

The families of senior citizens who suffered serious physical injuries because of nursing home negligence.
