Personal Injury

In law, the term “personal injury” refers to getting hurt because of something that someone else did (or didn’t) do. For instance, if you get hit by a car while crossing the street at a crosswalk, there is a good chance that the driver will be found responsible for the accident. As a result, that driver’s insurance company may have to pay you in order to help you pay for your medical bills, pain and suffering, time off work, and other expenses while you are recovering from your injuries.

Unfortunately, getting paid for your injuries is not always easy. Sometimes the insurance company refuses to pay or tries to deny their client’s responsibility. At other times, they may offer to pay you a lot less than what your injuries are worth. To make sure you are not being taken advantage of, it’s best to talk to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Types of Personal Injuries

Essentially, any type of injury you sustain because of someone else’s careless or reckless behavior can turn into a personal injury case. Here are some of the injury cases we most commonly see in West Virginia in our practice:

  • Auto Accidents including cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians.
  • Large Truck Accidents involving semi-trucks and/or tractor-trailers.
  • Slip and Falls caused by wet floors, icy sidewalks, poorly paved parking lots, and other unsafe walking conditions on public and private properties.
  • Child Abuse that occurs while children are in the state’s custody. (When this happens, our lead attorney acts as the child’s guardian ad litem to fight for their best interests. If you have seen or suspect abuse, please speak up.)

Your Fight Is Our Fight

Put Us on Your Side

Dealing with the Insurance Company

If you have already tried speaking with an insurance adjuster about your case, you have probably been told that they can’t pay you or that they can’t pay you very much. You should not believe this until you’ve spoken to a personal injury lawyer.

Insurance adjusters are paid to give out as little money as possible to accident victims because it saves their company money. Our team, on the other hand, will fight hard to get you as much as possible for your injuries because we know how hard it is to keep up with all of your bills after an accident. Let us evaluate your case for free and deal with the insurance company for you.

You Can Afford a Lawyer

People often worry that they can’t afford a lawyer, but we work hard to make sure that they can. After all, you have enough on your plate without us adding attorney fees to your list of expenses. We don’t want you to pay a thing until you have some money in your pocket, which is why we don’t charge our clients unless we win their case. After that, we simply collect a small portion of the payment to keep our business running. So if you think you can’t afford a lawyer, let us reassure you that you most certainly can.
