    Types of Compensation You Can Receive from a Personal Injury Case in West Virginia

    While you can’t erase history and undo an injury—as much as you wish you could go back and avoid all of this—monetary compensation can provide a way forward after the harsh disruption caused by such a painful event.

    A settlement or judgment could pay for your medical care, your damaged or destroyed car, and other costs and consequences that ripple from your accident, so that you can secure a better financial future.

    These are the major types of payment you can pursue in West Virginia:

    • Medical expenses your injury has caused
    • Future medical expenses for ongoing care
    • Lost wages if you had to miss work
    • Loss of your ability to earn in the future
    • Payment for annoyance and inconvenience
    • Property damage for your vehicle
    • Compensation for pain and suffering
    • Costs of future life plans, such as assistance taking care of yourself
    • Payment for catastrophic, life-changing injuries
    • Wrongful death if you lost a loved one

    If your injuries will lead to long-lasting health limitations, we can also help you apply for Social Security Disability benefits.

    In West Virginia, it’s important to know that you face a two-year statute of limitations to file a personal injury claim. After two years have passed from the date of your injury, a court may not allow your claim.

    It’s best to start pursuing damages as soon as possible to allow ample time for investigating and building your case.
