Legal Protection For Personal Injury Victims
Under West Virginia law, if a person is seriously injured by the actions of someone else, the person responsible must compensate the victim. Practicing in Martinsburg and throughout the state’s eastern panhandle, the Scales Law Office has experience working with clients to recover compensation after serious injuries caused by car accidents or animal bites.
Do I Have A Case?
Any potential settlement depends on a variety of factors, but here are a few issues that can determine whether or not your claim will be successful:
- Did you miss work and wages due to your injury?
- Were there any long-term or permanent effects like brain damage, scarring or emotional and psychological damage?
- Can you document your medical bills and expenses?
- Can you document the medical attention you’ve received?
Insurance companies are adept at exploiting any weaknesses in a claimant’s case. It is important to consult with an attorney before accepting any settlements an insurance company might offer.
