Fighting for the Rights of the Injured

No one expects their life will be suddenly and permanently changed as a result of a sudden, tragic event. Because wrongdoers give no advance warning of their careless behavior, even safety-minded people are not always able to avoid injury. Wherever tragedy occurs, it leaves its permanent scars on people’s lives and turns their world upside down.

That’s why I go to work every day: to provide you and other injury victims and their families the essential information and compassionate legal help that will enable you all to maximize your efforts to rebuild your lives.

Uniquely Qualified to Help You

Prior to representing injured individuals exclusively, Mr. Robinette was a partner in a major West Virginia law firm where he focused his law practice on defending serious and catastrophic injury claims and had countless opportunities to gain inside knowledge of the operations and dangers of coal mines, power plants, and other industrial sites.

Jeff Robinette has litigated and tried numerous and varied civil cases, including serious personal injury and wrongful death cases.

He now devotes his entire law practice to representing injury victims with a focus on catastrophic injury claims. Attorney Robinette has handled hundreds of serious and catastrophic injury claims caused by motor vehicle collisions and unsafe work environments, the two leading causes of serious and catastrophic injuries in the United States.

“I go to work every day to provide you and other injury victims and their families the essential information and compassionate legal help that will enable you all to maximize your efforts to rebuild your lives.”
