When you are injured on the job, you are able to receive workers’ compensation benefits. However, these benefits do have limitations and do not provide money for things like pain and suffering. Depending on the facts of your case, you may have the option to also file a personal injury suit against the person or company that caused your injury. These types of cases are sometimes referred to as “deliberate intent” after the West Virginia statute allowing for these claims.
Our attorneys have been fighting for the rights of injured workers for years. We have knowledge of how well sites operate and have resources to take on big companies.
