We handle all types of personal injury cases in Parkersburg
If you were injured by someone else’s careless or negligent behavior, you have recourse under West Virginia law. We handle all types of personal injury claims, including but not limited to:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and falls
- Dog bites
We will fight for full compensation for everything you’ve lost due to your accident. That includes your medical expenses, both past and future: ambulance fees, medical procedures, hospital bills, medication, medical devices, and future surgery. It also includes your lost income if you are out of work recovering from your injury. And it includes less tangible costs, such as pain and suffering or lost quality and enjoyment of life.
Don’t expect the insurance companies to be much help. They are dedicated to paying you as little as possible – or nothing at all. They may pressure you to take a “lowball” settlement or blame you for causing the accident. To them, you’re just another claim number, and they just want to save money. To us, you’re a human being in need of help, and we will fight for your rights.
What to do if you’re injured in Parkersburg
When you’re injured, you need to take a few steps to protect your legal rights. First, report the accident as applicable. If you were hurt at a business, tell the manager or owner and get a copy of the incident report. If you’re in a car accident, call the police and get a copy of the accident report. Second, start gathering evidence. Take pictures of the accident scene and any visible injuries. Get names and contact information for any witnesses. If there are video cameras nearby, ask for a copy of the footage. This evidence can be a critical part of your case.
Get medical attention right away. Go to the emergency room at Camden Clark Medical Center or another medical facility in Parkersburg. Make sure you save copies of all medical records and follow your doctor’s instructions. Schedule a follow-up doctor’s appointment with your primary care provider as well. This is important for two reasons: it protects your health, and it shows the insurance company that you are taking your injuries seriously. Medical documentation is a key part of a personal injury case.
Then, contact us right away, ideally before you talk to the insurance company. The sooner you get an attorney involved, the better. We need to start our investigation and begin building your case while you focus on getting better.
