What Qualifies as Personal Injury?

Personal injury law covers everything from slips and 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.

Deadline for Filing a Claim

If you are thinking of filing personal 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.

Caps on Damages for Personal Injury Claims

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 firm, you can rest assured they are ready to do whatever it takes to secure you get the maximum compensation for your injuries.
