Elkins is a town with over 7,000 residents in Randolph County, one of the most beautiful locations in West Virginia. Along with smaller residential roads, the main roads that go through Elkins are Routes 92, 33, and 250. Having these three main roads come together in Elkins brings in a good bit of traffic to the otherwise quiet, rural area. Shopping, restaurants, and lodging can all be found in Elkins. Unfortunately, tractor-trailer accidents are common on these winding roads.

Canaan Valley

Apart from the businesses that can be conveniently found there, Elkins is known for nearby vacation destinations in Canaan Valley State Park. This whole area is characteristic of wild and wonderful West Virginia. Some of the many sights to see in Canaan Valley State Park to visit are Blackwater Falls, Seneca Rocks, Seneca Caverns, and Smoke Hole Caverns. There are also trails for hiking and biking of varying difficulties.

Also in Canaan Valley State Park is the Canaan Valley Resort and Conference Center. The resort features golfing, geocaching, pools, and much more. Accommodations range from camping to suites to cabins.

Driving in Elkins

The average commute time to work for Elkins residents is 15 minutes, so most residents work locally. This helps to reduce the risk of accidents, property damage, and personal injury simply by reducing the amount of time on the road.

However, the average amount of snow that Elkins gets in the winter is well above the United States average, and this is one of the major issues causing so many car wrecks in the area. The best option when the roads are snowy and icy to avoid a car wreck and personal injury is to stay safe at home, but for many, this is not an option, so here are some tips from AAA to help you drive more safely on snowy roads.

  • Slow down. Slippery roads do not always allow quick stops, and if the driver tries to stop the vehicle too quickly, the vehicle can go out of control.
  • Accelerate and brake gently. Stopping or starting too quickly can cause the vehicle to begin sliding and go out of the control of the driver.
  • Read the owner’s manual for your vehicle to know how to best operate your brakes in winter weather. Different types of safety features on brakes will require different types of operation to work properly.
  • Leave plenty of room between vehicles. Again, braking too hard can cause the vehicle to go out of control, so leave plenty of room between you and the next vehicle to give extra time to stop.

Our Case Results

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.

Drunk Driver

While driving his car, our client was hit by a drunk driver which injured his shoulder so severely that three surgeries were required. The insurance company haggled over the value of the claim, initially giving a low-ball offer. Jeff Robinette was able to force the insurance company to pay all insurance available for this claim.

Motorcycle Accident

A police cruiser was attempting to make a U-turn on a four-lane highway and collided with our client’s motorcycle. The trooper had failed to follow the rules of the road by making an unsafe or prohibited lane change and was found to have operated his vehicle in an “erratic, careless, or reckless” manner.

As a result of the trooper’s negligent driving, our client sustained bodily injuries which required emergency room treatment and subsequent physical therapy and prescription medication to recover from his injuries.

The Robinette Legal Group, PLLC was able to recover an ample settlement to cover our client’s medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
