Of course, every auto accident case is different. Yours won't look exactly like anyone else's. However, the claims process tends to follow a similar path for most people. Here is what you might expect to happen after you contact our law firm:

  1. Investigation — We will take all necessary steps to ensure we obtain all available evidence to support your claim. This may include sending an investigator to the scene of the crash, obtaining police reports or consulting with an accident reconstruction expert to help determine who was at fault.
  2. Medical records — We will monitor your treatment process and work with your physician and other medical providers to document your injuries, your ongoing needs and your medical expenses.
  3. Filing your claim — We will carefully evaluate your case — including past, present and future damages — and file a claim with the appropriate insurance company on your behalf.
  4. Settlement offer — Typically, the insurance company will offer a certain amount of money to settle the case quickly. The amount offered may or may not be adequate to fully compensate you for your injuries. We will review the settlement offer and advise you accordingly.
  5. Litigation — If the insurance company will not settle your case for what it is worth, we can take the matter to court. Through litigation, we can fight for the full amount you deserve.

Be Aware — You Do Have A Time Limit For Filing A Claim

In West Virginia, as in other states, you only have a limited length of time in which to file a personal injury claim for a motor vehicle accident. Here, the time limit is two years from the time of the accident. For instance, if you were rear-ended and suffered a herniated disk on July 1, 2015, you only have until July 1, 2017, to file a lawsuit.

This statute of limitations means it is particularly important to contact an attorney as soon as possible so you don't miss out on the potential compensation available.
