The experienced personal injury attorneys from the law firm of Jan Dils are here to fight for your rights when you are injured in an auto collision. We will treat you like family, as we understand how challenging it can be to pay the bills when you are not working due to an injury suffered in an automobile accident.

In a case of serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries, a car crash case can be incredibly complex to navigate. While it may appear to be clear who was at fault for the accident, the insurance company representing the at-fault party is focused on how to pay out as little as possible. Without an experienced West Virginia car accident lawyer protecting your rights and interests, your ability to recover fair and full compensation is at risk.

There are countless details to manage in an auto accident injury case, including gathering and preserving all evidence to support your claim or lawsuit, as well as accessing professional resources such as accident investigators, accident reconstruction experts, financial experts, and medical experts. Our legal team provides our clients with the full scope of resources, enabling us to craft a case that can be successful in settlement negotiations or subsequently at trial.

How do West Virginia Auto Collision Lawyers Work to Win Cases?

Our team of legal advocates can:

  • Carefully investigate the cause(s) of a crash to determine every liable party (and all options for recovery)
  • Gather all available evidence, including crash photos, surveillance footage, police reports, witness accounts, etc.
  • Find and work with expert witnesses (like tire tread analysts, medical professionals, and accident reconstructionists) to strengthen our clients’ claims
  • Stand up to insurance companies to make sure they don’t try to compromise or undercut our clients’ rights
  • Aggressively pursue all available legal remedies to help our clients maximize their recoveries.

Common Questions People Ask Our Team

I was hit by an uninsured driver. Can I still file a claim?

Car insurance policies sold in the state of West Virginia usually provide coverage for uninsured and underinsured drivers. If you are in a car accident and the other driver does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance, the uninsured or underinsured coverage on your car insurance policy will pay for damages.

Collecting benefits from these policies is not an easy task. To see if you should file a claim, contact one of our attorneys.

I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Can I still file for damages?

West Virginia law requires that all drivers and front seat passengers in a car must be wearing a seatbelt while moving. If you are in a car accident and sustain injuries, but you were not wearing a seatbelt, you cannot file for all damages. Because you breached your duty of care, you are not entitled to damages for pain and suffering.

That said, you can still file for other damages such as, emotional distress, loss of earnings, medical expenses, and impairment of quality of life. You should speak with an auto accident attorney in West Virginia who can guide you to your best options.

I have been offered a settlement for my accident. Should I accept the offer?

No. The goal of many insurance companies it to get away with paying you far less than you are entitled to for the injuries sustained in your motor vehicle accident.

How much does it cost to hire a car accident lawyer in West Virginia?

Some law firms will charge you by the hour or even require you to pay a substantial retainer up front to secure their representation. At Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, that is not how we operate. We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not need to pay by the hour, nor do you need to pay for the cost of our services up front.

Instead, we don’t take a single dime unless we recover monetary compensation for you. If your case does not result in financial compensation, you are not responsible for any charges or fees whatsoever.
