One common complaint we hear about other firms is the lack of a personal approach and breakdowns in communication between the client and his or her lawyer. Our goal is to walk you through the legal process and explain each step as we move forward with your case. It takes someone who is just as dedicated about communicating to clients as they are about bringing confidence and moxie into a courtroom or during negotiations. At the Manchin Injury Law Group, our accident lawyers in West Virginia have the knowledge and experience you will need after you have been injured in a work vehicle collision.
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of work-related deaths. If you have suffered an injury from a work vehicle crash, laws tend to be less concrete, and there is a lot of gray area with which most people and less experienced attorneys are familiar. Though most people who are involved in work vehicle accidents do collect for damages incurred, there is often compensation not pursued to which an accident victim may be entitled.
Too often, we hear stories about people who were hurt in a work vehicle accident who did not pursue all of the compensation possible and end up with nothing after paying medical bills and not working for a long period of time. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to seek compensation from your own insurance company, the other driver’s policy (if another driver is involved), the manufacturer of the vehicle (if the accident was caused by a mechanical malfunction) or your employer (if negligent maintenance to the vehicle caused the accident). The most important thing to understand is that all of these types of things must be investigated in conjunction with a workers’ compensation insurance claim. If the proper claim is not filed, you could risk accidentally losing your right to recover compensation from certain entities.
Work vehicle accidents are a complex area of personal injury law. Because of this, it is important that you have smart, experienced attorneys representing you in your time of need.
