West Virginia Workplace Injury Lawyers
When you are suddenly injured in a workplace accident, it can be difficult
to know where to turn to for help – insurance companies may not
be offering all of the benefits you have the right to, and your employer
may even challenge the claim. At Fitzsimmons Law Firm PLLC, we've
received an AV Preeminent® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, the
highest level of excellence possible. Our aggressive West Virginia personal
injury attorneys have over 30 years of experience fighting for our clients
in cases like yours, and our results speak for themselves.
If your work involves operating or being near machinery, then every day
you place your trust in your employer, the machinery's manufacturer,
and your coworkers, to act safely and responsibly. If anyone fails to
do so, disasters occur, with serious or fatal injuries. A piece of
defective equipment can easily lead to catastrophic injuries or fatalities, and the compensation
paid to the victim or family is a crucial matter. If a loved one has suffered
fatal injuries as the result of such an incident, our firm can assist
you in the process of filing a
wrongful death lawsuit to provide the victim's dependents with some measure of financial
security and to hold the negligent parties responsible. Victims that have
suffered catastrophic injuries will have lost the ability to earn a living,
and the compensation recovered must reflect the seriousness of the injuries,
and address the extreme change in quality of life.

The frustrating and unfortunate reality of insurance companies is that
they will fight to pay out the lowest amount possible or even
deny a claim. Even if your
workplace accident was not your fault, you may be met with the accusation that you weren't
exercising due caution, or that your injury was sustained in an activity
that was not work-related. An insurance company may inform you that your
injuries are not serious enough to necessitate medical attention or warrant
sufficient time to recover.
These insurance companies don't have your best interests in mind, so
hire someone who is on your side, and knows the laws and regulations intimately.
Our West Virginia work injury attorney will work closely with you throughout
the entire process, and we are prepared to litigate fiercely on your behalf
when necessary. A machinery accident may allow us to seek compensation
from the manufacturer, leasing company or other entity, which will provide
you with far more in compensation you than you will get through workers'
