Why Should I Speak With an Attorney?
In an ideal world, the insurance company for the responsible party would compensate you fully for your injury, no questions asked. Unfortunately, insurance companies are in the business of maximizing profits and will do anything they can to pay as little as possible.
There’s good news: Our attorneys know how to identify the true value of a claim, and won’t settle for anything less than full compensation. To achieve the best possible outcome in your case, our attorneys can gather all pertinent evidence – police reports, witness statements, photographs, and more – and negotiate with the insurance company. In the event the insurance company isn’t willing to negotiate fairly, we’re not afraid to present your case at trial.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Recover?
Injury victims may be awarded several types of compensation, including:
- Lost wages for time missed from work
- Lost earning capacity if your injury prevents you from doing the same type of work in the future
- Medical expenses including medications, hospital visits, surgery, and rehabilitation
- Emotional damages to compensate you for the psychological burden of your injury
- Punitive damages if the negligent party was especially reckless
Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?
You might be hesitant to hire a lawyer when you’re burdened with medical bills, particularly if you have no source of income due to your injury. That’s why our attorneys work on a contingency fee structure, meaning you pay nothing upfront and we get paid only if you win. Our fee comes out of the favorable settlement or jury award we obtain for you.
How Do I Get Started?
If you’ve been injured, you may be entitled to significantly more compensation than the insurance company is offering. Our West Virginia attorneys may be able to help you get it.
