SM&B is one of the nation’s most successful law firms in the representation of industrial accident victims. From decades of handling claims arising from accidents and injuries in plants and factories, SM&B understands the inherent dangers involved in industrial work and always fights for our clients to maximize their recovery.
The single most important aspect of any industrial plant is the safety of the men and women working there. Some plant owners don’t follow this sacred rule. When they don’t, we hold them accountable.
