Our Charleston, WV personal injury attorneys at Charleston’s Campbell & Smith fight for the rights of injured people in Kanawha County and throughout the Mountain State. We know how to walk into the messy aftermath of an accident and make a difference in the outcome.
Have you been injured because of someone else’s careless behavior? Few experiences in life are quite so frustrating. When you go out into the world each morning, you expect the other people you encounter there to follow the rules, behave responsibly, and exercise due care. That’s a reasonable expectation. We all owe it to each other to do the right thing. So when someone else breaks their basic duties as citizens, or as your neighbors, it’s surprising. Indeed, personal injuries usually take people by surprise. Seek help from our trusted Charleston, WV personal injury lawyers today.
Of course, if you’re one of those people, you’re probably dealing with a lot more than just surprise. The physical pain of an auto accident, workplace injury, dog attack, public or private property accident, or any other injury can quickly become overwhelming. But beyond the pain itself, you’re probably also stunned by all the red tape and insurance run-arounds you come up against after a personal injury accident — to say nothing of the emotional distress.
In other words, dealing with an injury isn’t easy for anyone, and the companies involved in these cases (whether an employer, property owner, manufacturer, insurance corporation, or governmental agency) tend to make it much harder than it has to be. In fact, you might have a hard time getting a fair shake without an attorney on your side.
These days, most companies — and especially insurance companies — do everything they can to minimize their financial liability after an accident. Even if it’s their fault. Even if your injuries are obvious and legitimate. And even if they have a clear legal or contractual duty to pay up.
That’s where we come in.
