Serious Injuries in the Workplace

Most workplaces, even offices, come with some kind of hazard, be it repetitive motion injury risk or the possibility of a back injury when lifting. But some jobs, just by nature of the work involved, are more dangerous than others. A sudden accident could limit a worker’s job prospects and earning potential for life.

Shaffer Madia Law is based in Morgantown and Clarksburg and serves the surrounding areas. Our workplace injury attorneys have experience handling cases in nearly every county in West Virginia, and we have worked on most of the types of cases prominent in our great state’s workforce.

West Virginia industries comprise some of the most dangerous job sectors in the country:

  • Gas extraction
  • Construction
  • Industrial machinery
  • Iron and steel
  • Logging and forestry
  • Agriculture

If you have been seriously injured on the job, call (304) 244-4433 to speak with a knowledgeable lawyer today.

Workers' Compensation

More than 270 carriers offer workers' compensation insurance in West Virginia. Most companies with more than three employees have to have it. Though workers' compensation is designed to cover your medical bills and lost wages in case of an injury, you may find you have to appeal a decision or go to court if your insurance carrier disputes your claim.

Our Experience

Attorney Sam Madia has litigated more than 100 lawsuits involving serious and fatal injuries occurring at job sites. These lawsuits most often involve natural gas well sites, coal mines, and construction sites. Other examples of Mr. Madia’s experience in these types of lawsuits involve power plants, warehouses, loading docks, haulage (ingress/egress) roads, and manufacturing facilities.

Mr. Madia also has extensive experience with “deliberate intent” litigation wherein employees file lawsuits against their employers regarding unsafe working conditions that have caused serious and fatal injuries. If you have received an on-the-job injury, few Morgantown injury lawyers have more experience in this type of lawsuit than Mr. Madia.
