It’s important to understand that those who do not retain a lawyer run the risk of compromising their case. The insurance company has a cadre of attorneys on call at all times to represent their interests. And remember, their primary interest is minimizing the payouts on insurance claims.
Many people decide to handle it themselves, but they usually end up settling for a fraction of the amount that they could have received with the help of an experienced attorney who has 25 years of knowledge of the tactics of the insurance adjusters and their lawyers.
Remember, the job of the insurance adjuster is to offer you the least possible amount. The insurance company may hire detectives which will video record your movements and will thoroughly scan your social media accounts for evidence of falsehoods relating to your claim.
Statute of Limitations in West Virginia for Injury Cases
You generally have two years from the date you were injured or the act of malpractice to file a lawsuit.
There are a few exceptions to this time limit, primarily in the case of a child or if there was some fraud or coverup in an attempt to hide liability.

What is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind, or emotions (such as pain and suffering), as opposed to an injury to property.
The term is most commonly used to refer to a type of lawsuit alleging that the plaintiff’s injury has been caused by the negligence of another.
The most common types of personal injury claims are vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, tripping accidents, assault claims, accidents in the home, and product defect accidents (produce liability) and vacation accidents.
The term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (medical negligence) and conditions that are often classified as industrial disease or injury cases, including asbestosis, mesothelioma, emphysema, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, and strain injuries, deafness, and loss of eye site, as well as burn injuries.
Depending upon the intent or negligence of a responsible party, the injured party may be entitled to compensation from that party through an insurance settlement or judgment.
Most attorneys represent clients on a contingency fee basis in which the attorney’s fee is a percentage of the plaintiff’s eventual compensation, payable when the case is resolved, with no payment necessary if the case is unsuccessful.
The amount of compensation for a personal injury will primarily depend on the severity of the injury. Serious injuries (such as broken bones, severed limbs, brain damage) that cause intense physical pain and suffering receive the highest injury settlements.
If a Member of Your Family Suffered a Catastrophic Injury near Morgantown, Call Our Injury Attorneys
What makes some injuries serious and others catastrophic is the impact the injury will have on the victim and family. A head injury suffered in a car accident may not have an immediate impact on the victim or spouse, but a year later, short-term personality and short-term memory are noticeably changed.
A person may still be able to walk after a serious back injury until months or years later, a misdiagnosed fracture of vertebrae leads to severe pain and partial paralysis. An eye injury may clear up, only to require major surgery months later to prevent blindness.
Any type of catastrophic injury can lead to a lifetime of medical treatment, physical rehabilitation and lost earnings. That’s why an experienced personal injury attorney will never push for a quick settlement, even if the victim and family just want to take the insurance company’s early settlement offer and move on.
