    Help for You: Lawyers in Charleston, WV, Who Support Everyday People

    Sudden trauma, chronic illnesses, unjust actions by employers, mistakes by medical providers, injury from dangerous products, injury from unsafe conditions in places you need to go—all can make you feel like you’re alone and need someone on your side.

    Shaffer & Shaffer fights to help you put your problems in the past.

    Are you facing any of these situations? We can help:

    • Big Truck Accidents: Federal laws apply to 18-wheelers delivering goods across the country. If one hits you, make sure your rights are protected.
    • Accidents with Delivery Trucks: They’re darting around everywhere, not always watching where they’re going. If you’re hurt, you may be able to secure financial damages.
    • Slip and Fall: Business owners and other properties have a duty to maintain safe conditions when you visit. If they didn’t, they should compensate you.
    • Personal Injuries at Work: Sometimes an injury on the job can be the basis for a legal claim if someone else’s negligence caused it.
    • Coal Mining and Industrial Accidents: Some injuries in dangerous jobs could give you a claim to more compensation than you realized.
    • Nursing Home Injuries: If a loved one suffered because of mistreatment or negligence in a nursing home, you may have a claim for compensation.
    • Defective Products: When equipment you use at work or medical devices you use for your health malfunction and hurt you, you may have legal recourse.

    If you’ve been injured or wronged through no fault of your own, it’s perfectly natural to ask whether you have a legal claim.

    Shaffer & Shaffer can help you figure it out—starting with a free conversation about what happened to you.

    And our West Virginia personal injury lawyers, industrial accident lawyers, medical malpractice lawyers, nursing home abuse lawyers, product liability lawyers, and slip-and-fall attorneys charge no fee until you win your claim.
