What Makes this Morgantown WV Personal Injury Law Firm Different?

Morgantown WV Personal Injury LawyerJeff Robinette is a former insurance defense lawyer who knows the strategies of the insurance companies and knows how to prepare your injury case to win.

We never forget that your case isn't just about obtaining compensation for your injuries -- it's about you and your family and helping you receive what you need to resume and rebuild your lives. This is all the dedicated WV personal injury attorneys at the Robinette Legal Group PLLC do, all the time, and this is what makes us different from other law firms that say they handle personal injury claims.

Our team of experienced WV injury attorneys understands that you most likely have many questions.  We have the personal injury claims knowledge base to answer all of your questions and give an honest evaluation of your case.

That's why it is imperative for you to speak with an experienced WV personal injury attorney who can speak to your concerns and walk you through the injury claims process.  We handle personal injury claims in WV on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you pay us nothing until you obtain compensation.

If you have been injured by some person, product, or corporation in West Virginia, our experienced team of attorneys and staff at the Robinette Legal Group has the ability to find and fight for every source of compensation you are due.

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, 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.
