Common Examples of Personal Injury Cases in West Virginia

A “personal injury” includes any harm that would not have occurred if not for the negligence of another person. In other words, injuries borne of negligence could form the basis of a successful civil lawsuit. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases in our area include:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Collisions between cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles are a common cause of personal injuries in West Virginia. Driver negligence can result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries, especially when a pedestrian is involved. Fortunately, an experienced personal injury attorney can help injured individuals seek compensation from negligent motorists.

Medical Negligence

Mistakes made by doctors, nurses, or other healthcare providers can cause debilitating injuries or illnesses. Examples of negligence in a medical setting include surgical mistakes, delayed or incorrect diagnoses, failure to treat, and birth injuries.

Slips and Falls

When someone slips and falls due to a hazard on another person or entity’s property, they could be entitled to financial compensation from the landowner. Property owners have a duty to protect visitors from certain hazards and can therefore be held liable when a guest suffers undue harm, depending on the circumstances.

Product Defects

While most products perform as intended, some can have dangerous defects. When these defects result in injuries or illnesses, a local lawyer can help pursue financial compensation from negligent manufacturers and distributors for making and selling a dangerous product.

Pursuing Compensation for Personal Injuries

Recovering fair compensation for personal injuries could be possible with the right guidance and legal representation. Regardless of the type of accident someone was harmed in, he or she has the right to seek a monetary award from the at-fault party. A West Virginia personal injury attorney at our firm can serve as an advocate throughout the course of a civil case to ensure a plaintiff receives maximum compensation from liable parties.

The amount of compensation a claimant can recover largely depends on the type of losses he or she sustained. Examples of the types of financial compensation that may be available in a personal injury lawsuit include:

Lost Wages

For many people, one of the consequences of a serious injury is the sudden and unexpected loss of income. When an injury prevents someone from going to work, the end result could be weeks or months of missed paychecks. Our legal team can help estimate an injured person’s lost wages by examining employment records from shortly before the injury and include that amount in a comprehensive demand package.

Medical Bills

Expenses related to medical care typically make up the largest portion of personal injury compensation. From surgical procedures to prescription medication, treating these injuries could be costly. For long-term or permanent injuries, these costs are likely to grow indefinitely, often necessitating the assistance of a personal injury lawyer in West Virginia who can help calculate future medical bills.

Pain and Suffering

Victims of personal injuries often suffer emotionally as well as physically. Civil law allows personal injury plaintiffs to recover non-economic damages for their emotional trauma and pain and suffering. It takes a skilled lawyer to effectively demonstrate a claimant’s non-economic losses.
