About This FirmWork can be your passion, trade and livelihood. To lose your work or have it adversely affected by an accident on the job can be devastating.
Few people understand the physical, emotional and financial hardships that this devastation can bring to a person's life better than H. Guy Smith of Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A. In fact, his life's work has been shaped by this understanding.
The story of Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A. actually began in 1942 with Gordon Elmo Rodgers, uncle to H. Guy Smith, who fell while working in a saw mill in the rural town of Cross City, Florida. He was paralyzed from the waist down and spent the remainder of his life as a paraplegic as a result of the fall.
Due largely in part to a lack of knowledge of the Florida Workers' Compensation Law and inadequate medical treatment, he died at the age of thirty, only fourteen months after the accident, leaving behind his wife and small children.
Years later his son, Jimmy, fell five stories while working as a carpenter and sustained massive injuries and multiple spinal fractures. Fortunately, he sought legal representation from his cousin, H. Guy Smith.
Previous to this event, Mr. Smith had been primarily involved in the representation of insurance companies. However, sharing in the experience and perspective of an injured family member and personally observing the devastation brought on by an accident on the job, his career focus changed drastically.
H. Guy Smith left the representation of insurance companies and there after pledged his practice to the representation of injured individuals to ensure that they and their families are treated fairly and receive all of the benefits to which they are entitled by law.
Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A. represents only injured individuals, not insurance companies.
Our firm represents injured individuals to ensure that they and their families receive all of the benefits which they are entitled to by law.
We have a unique history and understanding of the physical, emotional and financial hardships due to an accident or serious injury and work hard to be remembered for what we do for our clients and not for a catchy slogan.
