If you have, you are not alone. Many hardworking West Virginians suffer from a job injury. Did you know that you may have a personal injury claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim?
If your employer knew of faulty machinery or other dangerous working conditions, and did nothing to fix the problem, causing you harm, you may be entitled to compensation for your work injury.

We Work Hard, Fight Hard To Get You The Settlement Or Award That You Need
Your injury is serious. Your injury may even be permanent. We understand that you need compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, long-term care and current and future lost wages. Opposing counsel will do their best to try and minimize your claim. If you face them alone, you may not get a settlement or award that covers your expenses.
We understand the needs of injured workers. We know how difficult it is to fight for compensation when your health is an issue. We work with our clients, not just to get them fair compensation. When appropriate we may also negotiate with lien holders, such as hospitals and insurers, to decrease bills you owe in the case we're handling.
