focus is on personal injury law. We are passionate about helping victims
find recompense for their suffering and we firmly believe in holding those

Personal injury law covers everything from slips or falls, to wrongful
death cases, and everything in between. At the core of every personal
injury case is an act of negligence or careless behavior that resulted
in a hazardous situation. If you believe that you or a loved one suffered
due to the improper conduct of another, you may be entitled to receive
compensation for lost resources that went toward medical bills, lost wages,
and coping with pain and suffering.

We take the following types of personal injury cases:
Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
If you are thinking of filing a persona injury claim in West Virginia,
it is important to understand you have a time limit to file your injury
lawsuit. This time limit is called the statute of limitations. In West
Virginia, you have 2 years to file your claim with the courts, and the
timeframe begins from the date of your accident. This is why filing a
personal injury claim as soon as possible is so important, if you miss
your window of opportunity, you could be barred from collecting compensation
for your injuries.
West Virginia Caps on Injury Damages
In addition to time limits, you also face damage caps for how much you
can recover in a personal injury claim. For wrongful death and catastrophic
injuries, West Virginia caps non-economic damages at $500,000. In all
other personal injury cases, the damages are capped at $250,000 for non-economic
damages. This does not limit the medical expenses and lost wages portion
of your compensation, but pain and suffering damages can be a large portion
of many personal injury cases. When you work with our West Virginia personal
injury attorney, you can rest assured they are ready to do whatever it
takes to secure you get the maximum compensation for your injuries.
