Areas of Law Description
- Personal Injury
We are built to obtain maximum compensation for serious and permanent injury, including neck and back injuries, head trauma and brain injury cases, knee and shoulder injuries, and all injuries requiring surgery. We have the resources and the trial experience to demand what our clients need for the immediate and long-term impact.
- Wrongful Death
Nothing can prepare you for the sudden death of a family member and no amount of money can ever compensate for your loss. A wrongful death lawsuit is not about reducing your loved one's life to a dollar figure. It is recognition of the family's financial hardships and a tangible way to the hold the negligent parties accountable for an accident that could have been avoided.
- Workers' Compensation
When you are injured in the course of work, your employer must pay workers' compensation to cover your medical care and lost wages for time off the job. You may not be aware that you could have additional claims against your employer or a third party. Any work injury is covered by workers' compensation, even if you were injured on the job through your own negligence. Our lawyers will fight for you and work to ensure you get all entitled benefits, including medical coverage and compensation for your short-term disability, permanent total disability or partial disability.
- Defective Product
Product manufacturers have a legal obligation to the safety of the end user. However, product liability lawsuits can be complex and expensive cases. If a family member was injured or killed by a defective product, you need a law firm with both the experience and the resources to fight for you. The Tulsa personal injury lawyers of Smiling, Miller and Vaughn, P.A., have successfully sued manufacturers of defective products across a spectrum from household products to industrial equipment. Contact us today for a free case evaluation to determine if you have a product liability claim.
- Motorcycle Accident
Automobile drivers often don't see motorcycles until it is too late. Those drivers often try to blame the motorcyclist when in fact the negligence is squarely on them. The dedicated team at Smiling, Miller and Vaughn, P.A., is committed to standing up for motorcycle accident victims and their families to secure the compensation they need and deserve.
- Truck Accident
Collisions involving large trucks are often more severe and more complex than a typical car accident. These cases require a prompt and professional investigation to protect your interests and hold the truck driver and trucking company accountable for your family's losses. When commercial vehicles are involved in a major injury or fatal accident, the trucking companies and their insurance carriers send their own team to investigate, with the goal of minimizing their liability exposure. The law firm of Smiling, Miller and Vaughn has the experience and resources to oversee a sophisticated truck crash investigation that protects your claims.
- Car Accident
We investigate quickly to preserve evidence and witness statements to prove the negligence of the other driver. We know that it takes time to realize the extent and the long-term impact of injuries. We involve medical specialists and other professionals early on to document a case for your full damages. Most motor vehicle accident claims are settled out of court, but there must be a credible threat of a trial to get fair value in your settlement. Two of our trial lawyers have more than 25 years of experience, and the insurance companies know that we are prepared to go all the way. We also have a former insurance adjuster on our team; we know how the insurance industry processes claims and what information is and is not important to your case.
- Premises Liability
Premises liability means that a property owner is responsible for providing safe conditions to patrons and the public. This includes slipping or tripping hazards in walkways, stairs, restrooms and parking lots, and other dangers to life or limb. Our legal team has successfully sued retail stores, apartment buildings, restaurants, grocery stores and other commercial entities in a wide range of slip-and-fall, trip-and-fall and other unsafe premises injury.
- Construction Worker Injury
Construction work is hazardous work. Job sites are fraught with dangers from equipment and vehicles to heights and live wires. Construction workers who are injured at a job site are entitled to employer-paid benefits and may have claims against third parties for creating safety hazards. We know that construction accidents often cause serious injuries, including disabling injuries that prevent those employees from returning to construction work. Our mission is to ensure that clients have access to quality medical treatment and to maximize their disability pay or lump settlements.
- Shoulder and Knee Injury
If it hurts to walk, it hurts to do almost anything. If you can't move your arm freely or lift more than a few pounds, working and everyday life can be painful and frustrating. In other words, a knee injury or shoulder injury affects your whole body and your whole life. We know that injuries to the weight-bearing joints can be completely debilitating, even if there is no outward sign of trauma. When these injuries require surgical remedy, our job is to prove that surgery is necessary and to ensure clients are fully covered for the costs of recovery.
- Brain Injury
A falling accident or a motor vehicle crash can result in severe head trauma and injuries to the face. The violent impact can also injure the brain, from profound brain damage to less obvious brain injuries that affect the person's ability to function and enjoy life. We know that brain injury is not always apparent, even to the victim and family members. If your loved one shows any signs of impairment following a car accident, a motorcycle crash, an accident at work or other traumatic event, seek medical treatment immediately and follow up with our experienced personal injury lawyers.
- Back, Neck and Spinal Cord Injury
From bad whiplash to paralysis, injuries to the spinal column can be painful and debilitating. If you or a family member has suffered a serious back or neck injury, you need experienced legal advocacy to ensure that you are compensated for the disabling effects. Our role is to ensure that clients' income is replaced if they cannot return to work, that their medical care is covered for the months and years ahead, and that spinal cord injury victims are covered for wheelchairs, lifts, special vans, home modifications, assisted living care and other accommodations of permanent paralysis.
- Catastrophic Injury
Cuts and bruises soon heal. Soreness and swelling subsides. But more serious injuries may require surgery and weeks or months of rehab and recovery, or they may result in permanent damage with a major impact on the victim and the family. Over the years, we have handled just about every type of personal injury case, including motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, defective products and workplace accidents. We are committed to getting full value for claims in which less experienced or less dedicated attorneys might settle for less than the case is worth and the client needs.
- Complex Civil Litigation
The partners and associates of Smiling, Miller and Vaughn bring diverse backgrounds and extensive trial advocacy that has resulted in notable settlements and verdicts over the years. We have handled large cases with multiple plaintiffs or defendants. We have handled technical medical matters and multi-jurisdictional cases. We know we can hold our own in court and in negotiations, no matter who is on the other side.
- Business Litigation
