When people are seriously injured, it can be overwhelming for individuals and families on multiple levels. In addition to the obvious pain, potential debilitations and concerns about recovery, people face the prospect of lost wages and medical bills. Additionally, many insurance companies may be trying to take advantage of injury victims in this confused state in order to limit payouts.

Do You Need a Lawyer?
A proven West Virginia personal injury attorney can play a critical role in asserting your right to seek compensation after a serious accident or other injury caused by negligent or wrongful conduct.
Sure, you could take a big chance and try dealing with the other side’s insurance company on your own. But with so much at stake, you will likely have more peace of mind knowing that an experienced personal injury attorney is on your side, protecting your rights and seeking justice on your behalf.
How Much Does an Injury Lawyer Cost?
Many personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingent basis. This means that you don’t pay attorneys’ fees unless the attorney succeeds in helping you obtain compensation.
Our firm is among those that take cases in this way. We won’t bill you for our time unless we recover compensation for you.
How Long Will It Take To Get Compensation For My Injuries?
How long it takes to resolve your claim for compensation depends to a great extent on the particular facts of your case. If the facts are complex, such as in many medical malpractice cases, it may take quite a while to settle the case or bring it to trial.
What is certain, however, is that taking legal action is often the only way to obtain the justice you seek. With a proven personal injury attorney pressing your claim, you can be confident that your interests will be protected while the timeline of the case unfolds.
