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' compensation.
