Morgantown Auto, Truck & Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Aggressively Seeking Compensation for Your Injuries in West Virginia
Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents are a leading cause of personal injury claims and lawsuits in West Virginia and throughout the country. Despite advancing safety equipment, traffic laws, and governmental efforts to reduce traffic crashes, thousands of people are injured or killed every year across our state. Most of these collisions are due to human error, such as inattention. Some are based on the violation of traffic laws, such as speeding, while others may be the result of defective vehicles and their parts engineered and sold by their manufacturers.
When you have been injured in an auto, truck, or motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses and damages under West Virginia personal injury law. At Mountaineer Criminal Law Group, we can help you file a claim, aggressively negotiate for maximum compensation, or take your case to civil court to help you get the justice you deserve. Our lead attorney is a skilled and proven trial lawyer who knows what it takes to get optimum results, especially when dealing with insurance companies that work to minimize or deny fair and just settlements.

Protecting You in Accident Injury Claims
The first thing to remember in traffic accident injury claims is that the insurer for the other party does not represent you. They represent their policyholder and their main concern is to protect their profitability. To do so, they work to pay out as little as possible in accident claims.
This means that they may try to shift the blame on you. In West Virginia, if you are found to be 50 percent or more at fault for the accident, you will lose your right to any damages. As a modified comparative fault state, West Virginia holds you liable for your percentage of fault. Thus, if you are 20 percent at fault for the accident, your damages will be reduced by 20 percent.
Thus, insurance company tactics designed to increase your liability may reduce or negate your damages. This can lead to settlement offers that are less than what your case is worth. Once you accept and sign an insurance company settlement offer, you lose your right to further compensation. This is why you need an attorney on your side who knows how to prove fault and how to deal with insurance company maneuvers designed to protect themselves instead of you.
