Personal Injury FAQ:

Q. Should I take the settlement that the insurance company is offering me?

It's imperative that you discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer before agreeing to any settlements offered by the at-fault person's insurance company. Until your injuries and financial burdens have been properly evaluated, you will have a hard time knowing if the insurance company is offering you a fair amount. There are several types of damages that can be recovered in a personal injury claim, so it's extremely important to consider your options carefully before agreeing to a settlement.

Q. What is the average personal injury settlement?

It's impossible to estimate how much your case may be worth without knowing the details of your accident. Settlement amounts vary from one case to the next and can change depending on the extent of the plaintiff's injuries. If you speak with our injury attorney we can give you a better idea of what compensation you may be eligible to receive.

Q. How long do I have to file my personal injury claim?

West Virginia state law sets the statute of limitations for personal injury cases at 2 years (W. Va. Code § 55-2-12). This means that you have up to 2 years following the date of your accident to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. If you fail to file your lawsuit in time, your case will usually be dismissed by the court. Don't wait! Contact our accident attorney today to get started!

Q. Are personal injury settlements taxable?

In general, settlements that are awarded to replace out-of-pocket expenses are not taxable. However, if you are concerned about your settlement being taxed, you should speak with a tax professional for more specific information.

Q. What damages am I eligible to receive compensation for?

If your injuries were caused by someone else's negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation for any of the following damages: lost income, pain and suffering, medical treatment, loss of consortium, mental anguish. To determine what damages you may be eligible to receive it is important you discuss your situation with our personal injury attorney.
