Morgantown Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

When an Accident Leaves You Unable to Work in Clarksburg

Some accidents are worse than others. While any sort of injury may be worth pursuing damages, some injuries leave you especially vulnerable—unable to work due to physical or mental harm incurred.

In these cases, you can’t consider just medical bills. After a catastrophic accident, an individual’s earning potential could be limited for life.

Certain types of injuries are more likely to be considered “catastrophic,” such as:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Loss of limb
  • Paralysis

If your injury resulted in long-term disability or prevents you from living and working as you once did, you likely have a strong catastrophic personal injury claim.

Our catastrophic injury attorneys in Morgantown are here for you during this difficult time. Call (304) 244-4433 today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Determining the Financial Value of a Claim

While West Virginia limits the amount that can be awarded for certain “non-economic” damages, such as pain and suffering, there is no cap on purely economic damages. If you are able to prove in court that your earning potential has been decreased or limited as a result of your injury, you may be able to claim an amount based on your potential salary for years to come. However, this amount may be reduced if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident.

Your Morgantown Personal Injury Advocates

Catastrophic injuries do more than affect your work potential. They can limit your capacity for everything you once enjoyed doing—activities with family, travel, sports, or personal hobbies. It’s hard to overestimate the toll they can take on you, both mentally and physically.
