How Do I Choose the Right Lawyer?
It is important to take the time to consider what type of claim you will
be filing and what type of attorney will have the necessary knowledge
and experience to help. If you are going to be facing trial, you need
a lawyer with trial experience. When you are filing a personal injury
claim for a workplace injury, you will need an attorney who is experienced
in work related claims.
What is a Personal Injury Case?
When you have been injured in an accident or sustained injuries as a result
of the negligent and irresponsible actions of a third party, it is referred
to as a personal injury case. Whether the party responsible is one person,
a small business, or a large corporation, you will need a skilled attorney
who can file a personal injury suit on your behalf.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Although there are some exceptions, in most cases our attorneys will accept
cases on a contingency fee basis. What this means for you is that it will
not cost you anything up front to hire a personal injury lawyer. If we
win your case, we will take our fees out of the compensation, and if we
do not win, we will not charge you a thing.
Will You Take My Case?
We cannot answer this question until you have met with one of our attorneys.
During your initial consultation, we will go over the details of your
case and exactly what occurred, including investigating your medical records
and any other evidence. We would be happy to offer you this consultation
on a complimentary basis.
What is a Statute of Limitations?
The period of time that you are able to legally file a claim for a case
is referred to as statute of limitations. In West Virginia, medical malpractice
cases must be followed within two years of the time of the incident. The
statute of limitation for personal injury claims depend on the exact situation,
which we can discuss with you in person.
