Being involved in an accident can be devastating. Victims often struggle to pay their medical bills and miss long periods of work, which adds financial strain to the emotional and physical stress of an injury. West Virginia civil law provides an important form of recourse to those who sustain injuries – whether in car accidents, on-the-job injuries, or because of a defective product.
