Were You Injured Because of a Doctor’s Negligence? Call Us.

In our role as West Virginia Medical Malpractice Lawyers, we believe that medical professionals, including doctors, dentists, psychiatrists, nurses, and other health care professionals owe their patients a duty to provide a certain standard of care.

If a medical professional breaches this duty of care (by negligence or omission) and you suffer harm, you may be entitled to pursue a medical malpractice claim against them to recover compensation for any additional medical expenses, lost wages and income, and pain and suffering you incur.

Common Causes of Medical Malpractice in West Virginia

One careless mistake by a doctor or other medical professional can change your life forever. What makes it even worse is that in most cases, the mistake could have been prevented.

The most common causes of medical malpractice in West Virginia are as follows:

If you have suffered harm as a result of any one of these acts of negligence, you deserve to be fairly compensated.

What Kind of Settlement Can I Receive For a West Virginia Medical Malpractice Claim?

There is no set amount of compensation for a medical malpractice claim. Instead, you and your attorney must sit down and go through all the harm you have suffered due to the incident and determine what a fair and just settlement should be.

A few factors that will be taken into consideration in your medical malpractice claim include:

  • The extent of your injuries;
  • Whether you did anything to contribute to your injuries;
  • The settlement amounts for similar cases; and
  • The length of time that you will require treatment and support because of your injuries.

Each of these factors can be difficult to determine on your own. This is why the help of a skilled and experienced medical malpractice attorney is so important.

The West Virginia medical malpractice lawyers at Robinette Legal Group, PLLC have access to both the legal resources and expert witnesses needed to make your case and present factual information to support your claim.

How Long Will My Medical Malpractice Case Take to Settle?

In medical malpractice cases, three main factors will influence how long your case will take to settle:

  1. The extent of your injuries – Having your injuries fully diagnosed and knowing the impact they will have on your future will play a big role in settling your case. The longer this takes, the longer it will take for your case to settle.
  2. How long you will need medical treatment/be unable to work – Until you know how far into the future you will need medical treatment and/or how much you need to recover in lost wages and income, you cannot settle your case.
  3. The type and number of medical errors that occurred – The type and number of medical errors made can impact the time it takes to settle your case. Likewise, if multiple defendants are involved, your case may take longer.

One thing that can help you get the fairest and the justest settlement in your case, as quickly as possible, is having a skilled medical malpractice lawyer from Robinette Legal Group, PLLC on your side. At our firm, we have the resources necessary to bring in various experts to help determine the true extent of your injuries and losses as well as the true value of your claim. We will make sure that the final settlement amount fits your needs, not just in the present day, but throughout your life.

Is There a Time Limit to File Your Claim?

Every state has a statute of limitations, or a time limit, to file personal injury claims. In West Virginia, you only have two years to file a claim. It is important to file your claim before the deadline, as filing after may take away your right to recover the compensation you deserve altogether. Our attorneys at Robinette Legal Group will help keep you on track. We will make sure you do not miss your deadline or make any errors while filing that may slow down the legal process.

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.

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.
