Our Morgantown law firm does not handle general Workers Compensation claims, but instead focuses on providing the best representation for those individuals and families who have suffered from a catastrophic workplace injury or wrongful death.
So-called tort-reform laws have eroded workers' rights and grossly favor the insurance companies who are adjusting the claims. Most attorneys in WV who used to practice in this area of law have discontinued workers compensation representation, but if your case fits into a general workplace injury category, you can find an attorney whose focus is general Workers Compensation claims at the WV State Bar Lawyer Referral Service online.

Workers' compensation laws say that you cannot hold your employer accountable for damages above the amount of benefits paid by the workers' comp insurance unless you can prove the employer acted with deliberate intent, in other words, deliberately put you in harm's way.
In many workplace injury and wrongful death cases, however, there may also be a third party who can be held liable for negligence. The third party can include the manufacturer of a piece of defective industrial equipment, the property owner or a subcontractor working on the same job site.
