About The Firm

It's Called Personal Injury For A Reason

When you have been injured, there is nothing abstract about it. You don't experience "average" pain, you suffer pain directly. Depending on the type of accident, it may be minor and temporary or severe and lifelong. This is why personal injury accidents are often called "life-changing." And it is your life that is changed.

When you hire a personal injury attorney, you are hiring a person to represent your rights in a court of law. They have to work closely with you, they get to know you well and getting that relationship right is important. You are trusting them with your future.

You Will Work With Ruth

At the Ruth Smith Law Firm, the name says it all. You are hiring Ruth Smith, an attorney who has worked in Asheville and represented people in the surrounding area of Western North Carolina for nearly 20 years.

Your case will not be handed off to another, less experienced attorney. She will zealously represent your interests from the beginning to the end, and she knows how important a successful outcome will be.

For You, It Is The Most Important Case In The World

Your case is of singular importance to you and to Ruth. Ruth Smith is an experienced trial lawyer who has practiced personal injury law in her entire legal career. She knows how much injured individuals depend on the results of their cases to provide the medical treatment and financial support they will need to recover. Sometimes the verdict or settlement amount may be needed to provide for the injured individual and their family for the rest of their lives.

Ruth understands that insurance companies will often try to rush a settlement, before a person fully recognizes their injuries. She often warns individuals not to settle a case before they have spoken with their own attorney and have received an adequate medical examination.

Obtaining compensation for an injury is a complex process. For most people, it is a one-time occurrence, and definitely not a skill most want to learn. Ruth Smith regularly appears in courts in North and South Carolina, and knows how to protect her clients' interests.

Above all, she never forgets just how personal your case is to you.
