How a West Virginia Car Accident Lawyer Can Help

A car accident injury can change your life forever. In order to obtain the compensation you need after a collision to pay for your medical bills, auto repair bills, lost wages, and other hardships resulting from collision injuries, it is crucial that you have an experienced vehicle injury lawyer on your side. Our personal injury law firm is based in Morgantown, and we serve automobile injury clients throughout West Virginia.

At Robinette Legal Group, our practice is focused on West Virginia vehicle accident law. Since this is the primary focus of our Morgantown practice (for many firms, it is not), we are able to apply our considerable experience, skill, and resources to our clients' injuries from car accident cases - and help them win results.

All your actions or omissions will have an effect on your ability to pursue your legal rights for full and fair compensation for your injuries.

What You Must Know For a Successful Auto Collision Claim in West Virginia:

West Virginia law provides that you have two years from the date of the auto collision to take legal action against responsible individuals and companies, including insurance companies, to seek compensation for the damages you sustained in the auto collision. If your child is injured in a collision, your child will have two years from the date of adulthood to file such claim.

Waiting until your child is an adult, however, creates a significant loss of evidence you will need to prove your child's claim. For adults, if you do not file a lawsuit within the two-year statute of limitations period, your claim will be forever time-barred.

Two years may sound like a long time from now, but believe me, it is not when considering all the things that must be done to secure your legal rights against the responsible parties. Every day that you wait to seek legal counsel equates to a loss of opportunity to obtain full compensation for your injuries.

In reality, it is the first 60 to 90 days following your auto collision that will make or break your case. It is within this shorter time period that necessary evidence and testimony must be secured, treatment rendered and medical opinions obtained. If you wait until after this time period has passed, and you have not developed your claim properly, it will make the job of even a good lawyer very hard to obtain a full recovery for you.

Time Limit For Filing a West Virginia Car Accident Injury Lawsuit

Worse yet, if you wait until close to the two-year statute of limitations period to consult with a lawyer, it is almost guaranteed that your claim will be compromised. It is somewhat like getting cancer diagnosed early -- your chances of improvement are greater the earlier the diagnosis is made. So, don't wait to get your legal claim diagnosed by a qualified lawyer.

For What May I Be Compensated After a Motor Vehicle Collision?

In a typical auto injury case, the injured person is entitled to pursue compensation for their past and future pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages, and their loss of enjoyment of life. If the injuries are very serious and diminish the relationship with a married spouse, loss of consortium (physical and emotional intimacy and services) damages may be awarded to the spouse for those losses they have sustained stemming from your injuries.

What are Punitive Damages in a Car Accident Case?

Finally, if the at-fault driver was intoxicated or was guilty of grossly negligent behavior, punitive damages may also be awarded in a court of law. With each category of damages, however, there are complex laws and trial court procedures that must be strictly followed in order to prove your injuries in a court of law.

If you are unrepresented, there will be no one to advise you on the law and to ensure that you have met all your legal obligations -- any failure on your part to follow these strict rules will have an adverse impact on your auto injury claim. Remember, only those damages that can be proven in a court of law will be considered for compensation.

The Robinette Law Team protected me from the insurance company's low balling tendencies. They worked for nearly two years on my case and it was worth the patience. Jeffery Robinette and his associates kept me very well informed and walked me through every step of the process. It was a long journey that ended in victory.
