Morgantown Car Accident Attorney

Personal Injury Representation After a Car Accident in Clarksburg

There were hundreds of car accidents in West Virginia last year—and 280 of those crashes were fatal for one or more people. Vehicle accidents can be serious and have far-reaching consequences for everybody involved, including the driver at fault, passengers, and pedestrians.

Whether your personal injury lawsuit involves a simple rear-end collision or a complex situation with a large commercial vehicle (such as 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers), we have extensive experience with these lawsuits. In general, these types of personal injury cases involve determining liability and awarding damages.

When you have been injured in an accident, in Morgantown or the surrounding areas, call (304) 244-4433 to speak with experienced car accident lawyers.

Determining Liability

This is often the most complex part of the case. One or more drivers may be liable. The employer or owner of a commercial vehicle involved may be liable. People not directly involved in the accident who contributed to obstructions in the roadway or to visibility problems could be liable. A vehicle manufacturer may also be at fault if a defect was part of the cause.

You may be considered partially liable for the accident, but if another party was more at fault, they can be held liable for at least part of the damages you incurred.

Awarding Damages

When liability has been determined, it's up to a jury or a judge (depending upon the type of trial) to award monetary damages. Keep in mind that if you were injured in an accident where more than one party was at fault, you may be able to receive payments for damages from more than one person or entity.

Personal injury settlements may involve one or several types of damages:

  • Medical bills already incurred
  • Future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional harm
  • Damage to property, if applicable
  • Punitive damages, in cases of recklessness
