Confidential and Fast Results
There are many lawyers who advertise their services in the general field of personal injury. Selecting the right lawyer is perhaps the most important decision you can make. The value of your case will vary considerably based upon the competency and experience of the lawyer you select. Make sure that the lawyer you select has a solid reputation and trial experience.
The attorneys at our firm have many years of experience, and have obtained numerous jury verdicts involving substantial sums of money for our clients. Insurance companies respect our firm. Our legal peers have also rated us as having the highest qualifications and ethics as determined on a national basis. If we accept your case, we will aggressively pursue your case with the goal of maximizing your recovery.
You have suffered personal injury if you have been injured because of negligence, recklessness, or misconduct by a third party. This third party can be anyone, from an individual to the state to a corporation. Our personal injury lawyers have settled a variety of West Virginia cases, including cases of medical malpractice, car accident injury, slip and fall injuries, construction accidents, wrongful death, brain injuries, and more.
In the majority of cases, the personal injury lawyers at Berthold Law Firm will take your case on a contingency basis. This means that if we do not win your case, our services are free. If, on the other hand, we win your case, our fees will be taken as a percentage of your compensation. If we accept your case, our office will initially advance the expenses of your case (which include hiring witnesses, compiling evidence, and other associated costs), and will be reimbursed for these expenses out of the recovery. Choosing to come in to our offices for a consultation will cost you nothing. If you think you have been a victim of personal injury, contact our lawyers today.
Be sure to discuss the financial arrangements of your case with your attorney ahead of time so that you understand the fees for which you may be responsible, as different firms may have different payment procedures and financial arrangements may also vary according to the specific case type.
This question can only be answered once you have described your experience in detail to one of our personal injury lawyers. At Berthold Law Firm, we must be able to establish a number of conditions in a court of law in order to take your case. We can only make this determination once we have heard your individual case in detail during a consultation. Fundamentally, we must be able to establish that a third party has been unreasonably negligent and that the negligence has been the cause of your injury. If you feel that you have experienced injury to the negligence or recklessness of another, contact our personal injury lawyers in Charleston, West Virginia to schedule a consultation. From there, we can determine whether our firm will represent you.
The statute of limitations is defined as the period of time during which you can file a claim for a given kind of case. This statute varies based on the state in which you are filing suit, and the violation that has been committed. For example, a victim must file a West Virginia medical malpractice case within two years of the time that he or she knew that medical malpractice had been committed. If more than two years passes before a claimant comes forward to file their case, the case will be barred, and the claimant will not be able to receive compensation. Again, the statute of limitations differs depending on the type of case. If you believe that you have been the victim of personal injury, you should contact our lawyers in West Virginia as soon as possible to learn more about the statute of limitations in your particular situation.
Our work has not gone unnoticed. Martindale‑Hubbell®, one of the country’s top legal directories, has awarded our firm an "AV" rating. This is the highest and most respected designation of legal ability and ethical conduct among firms in our practice areas. In addition, Berthold Law Firm has the best research tools and resources to fully investigate and evaluate your case.
