If you are unable to visit our firm, we can come to your home or hospital room.

AWARDS & HONORS

We treat each of our clients with respect, dignity, and compassion – when you walk into our doors, you are family.

Most personal injury cases rely on the legal theory of negligence. This is a broad term that holds
that we all have an inherent responsibility to act with reasonable care around one another.

For example, we have a legal responsibility to follow traffic rules, watch for
pedestrians, and even keep the property we own safe and maintained. Professionals like physicians, nurses, and employers have a legal responsibility to provide adequate care and a safe workplace. When we violate these terms and someone else suffers harm as a result, we call it “negligence.”

Collecting damages in a personal injury lawsuit involves four different steps:
STEP- 1 1

Establishing duty of care. First, an attorney must establish that the defendant (person being sued) owed the plaintiff (victim) a “duty of care.” Drivers owe a duty of care to others on the road, physicians owe a duty of care to their patients, and manufacturers owe a duty of care to their consumers, for example.

STEP- 2 2

Showing a breach. Next, a personal injury attorney must show the defendant violated his or her duty of care by committing negligence.

STEP- 3 3

Proving cause. A West Virginia personal injury attorney must not only show that the defendant violated a duty of care, but also that the negligence directly led to the injury.

STEP- 4 4

Illustrating extent of the damages. Finally, the plaintiff’s attorney must show that the victim suffered damages as a result, such as medical bills or lost wages from missing work.

Community Involvement

We have a passion for giving back to the community we love.
