Was Your Child Injured in a Car Accident Because the Seat Belt Failed?

By law, children are required to be restrained in a moving car, either in a child seat or by a seat belt. Unfortunately, seat belts often fail because of improper design or poor manufacturing and installation. Parents do their best to keep their family safe but when a manufacturer is negligent, innocent children often get hurt in accidents.

If your child was injured in a car accident and you suspect that the seat belt failed or contributed to the extent of injuries, talk to one of our trial attorneys at the Robinette Legal Group in Morgantown, West Virginia. Our Morgantown child injury lawyers have been representing clients involved in automobile accident injuries for over thirty combined years of practice.

From these cases, we gained extensive knowledge of the strategies that insurance lawyers often use to minimize their client’s liability. We also saw, firsthand, the amount of financial and professional resources a manufacturer is willing to throw into a case to protect itself. The truth is, that a family doesn’t have an equal playing field unless their law firm understands the issues and fights aggressively to win.

Our Case Results

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.

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.

Car Accident Injuries

Jeff Robinette was hired by a young woman who had sustained permanent injuries to her foot due to an auto collision. The insurance company offered such a small amount and dealt with her in such a dismissive manner that the treatment of her case amounted to bad faith on the insurance company’s part. Jeff was able to obtain a substantial settlement which allowed this young woman and her husband to pay medical bills, buy a car and a home, and start building a future together.
