We understand what it takes to hold negligent individuals accountable. Unfortunately, insurance companies and other parties will often do whatever they can to shift the blame onto victims in order to avoid paying out a settlement. Bailess Smith PLLC can help you gather the evidence you need to form a strong legal strategy and move forward with confidence.
West Virginia's Comparative Negligence Laws
In some states, if the victim was at least 50 percent at fault for their injuries, they will not be entitled to any settlement. In West Virginia, you are still eligible to collect a settlement even if you are up to 99 percent responsible for your injuries. As you might guess, this is a good reason for insurance companies to put all the blame on you. In order to obtain the best possible outcome for your situation, you need to show where the fault lies.
You must prove:
- The responsible party was expected not to injure the victim
- A lack or care resulted in the victim being injured
- It was for this reason and no other that the victim was injured
- The victim sustained serious injuries that require extensive care
With the help of experienced and tenacious attorneys on your side, you can build a case that helps you obtain what you need to make a full and speedy recovery.
