Experienced West Virginia Fatal Accident And Personal Injury Attorneys

Our law firm has been helping people deal with effects of serious accidents for more than 30 years. We have the investigative resources, legal knowledge and advocacy skills needed to win challenging accident cases. When representing you, we will undertake a comprehensive legal effort designed to establish the liability of the responsible party, place a value on your losses and seek full compensation in settlement negotiations or at trial.

In West Virginia, compensation in a wrongful death case can include:

  • Medical costs prior to death
  • Pain and suffering of the accident victim before death
  • The future income your loved one would have earned had he or she lived
  • Noneconomic losses such as loss of consortium and loss of companionship
  • Funeral and burial costs

In wrongful death cases, lost future income is usually the most significant item. Working with an economist or CPA, our lawyers will calculate the full value of this figure as well as all other compensable losses and seek full compensation for you.
