Morgantown Work Injury Attorneys

You go to work every day expecting to work hard using the industrial tools for the job. When a piece of industrial equipment or manufacturing product is defective or breaks down unexpectedly, it can result in a severe or even deadly accident. The American manufacturing plant is supposed to be among the safest industrial workplaces in the world. There should be no place for defective products or tools that leave people injured or dead and suddenly needing the help of an experienced work injury lawyer.

Free Consultation – No Attorney Fees Unless You Win – Statewide Practice

Robinette Legal Group is a prominent personal injury litigation firm that protects the rights of plaintiffs injured in workplace accidents caused by industrial equipment defects. As a former insurance defense litigation firm, we have represented numerous manufacturers and insurance companies seeking to limit their liability in cases involving dangerous manufacturing and industrial products. We now use that knowledge and experience to help you protect your rights.

We know how hard insurance defense law firms will fight to protect themselves from an extensive settlement or jury award. Our Morgantown personal injury lawyers work harder. That means knowing how to investigate the causes of the accident, which parties share liability for your injuries, and the full extent of your financial damages over your lifetime. We are not a personal injury settlement mill. We fight until we get the maximum amount you are entitled to.

Don’t Give Up Your Workers’ Compensation

State workers’ compensation law covers most workers in West Virginia. If you apply for benefits, you are suspending your right to sue your employer for additional damages caused by negligence. There is one exception involving special circumstances — when your employer acted with “deliberate intent” under W. Va. Code 23-4-2.

If we determine there is another party responsible for your injuries or wrongful death claim, we vigorously pursue full and fair monetary damages against them. At the same time, you continue to receive workers’ comp benefits. You will not give up workers’ comp by seeking compensation for third-party liability.

We represent clients in all types of injury and wrongful death claims involving industrial equipment defects, including:

  • Conveyor belt injuries
  • Crane and forklift injuries
  • Defective punch press, bending tools, and sheet metal equipment
  • Coal mining equipment defects
  • Construction power tool injuries
  • Defective agricultural equipment, farm equipment accidents
  • Industrial vehicle accidents
  • Injuries caused by improper safety warnings and insufficient operator training

Resources to Handle the Most Complex Medical Injuries

We have experience representing clients in the most complex wrongful death and catastrophic injury claims resulting from auto defect accidents, including loss of eyesight, concussions and closed-brain injuries, paralysis and spine injuries, bone fractures, burns, amputation, and disfigurement.

Our Case Results

Crushed Foot Injury

While working in Morgantown, WV for a large national retailer, our client, a young woman in her early twenties, was ordered to use equipment that she was not properly trained to use. In the course of attempting to complete her task, she sustained a severe crush injury to her foot. Due to this incident, our client lost full use of this foot for the rest of her life and was living with chronic, persistent pain.

Our firm was able to obtain a sizable settlement which took care of all her medical bills and future treatment for her foot injury. The settlement was ample enough to allow this young woman to go back to college and retrain for employment which will accommodate her permanent disability.

Crushed Leg Injury

Imagine having your leg crushed so badly in an accident that you have to undergo two surgeries to insert multiple pins and have a rod hammered into the bone just to stabilize the femur. Unfortunately, the first rod inserted into the bone didn’t accomplish the desired effect, so the rod had to be removed and surgically reinserted. Imagine the great pain, the months of therapy and recovery, and the frustration of knowing you can never return to the type of work you have performed for decades.

Jeff Robinette was able to obtain a great enough settlement to pay this man’s medical bills in their entirety and money enough to start a new business so he could work and live a productive life even with his permanent impairment.

Brain Injury

While timbering in WV, a heavy equipment operator sustained a permanent brain injury while performing the duties of his job. What price can you put on the loss of a fully functioning, fully reasoning brain? Jeff Robinette was able to negotiate a settlement that was annuitized to provide for this man for the rest of his life.
