Auto and Trucking Accidents

At Johnson Law, a personal injury lawyer in West Virginia, we seek to recover the maximum compensation that you obtained from your injuries. Insurance companies will want to pay out minimal compensation, but our goal is the opposite.
If you’ve been injured on a premises, you may be entitled to a premises liability award due to a trip, a fall, or any unexpected circumstances. This relates to the responsibility a property owner has for indicating any dangerous or hazardous situations.
As your personal injury lawyer, we will help you determine if you are entitled to compensation. If this is the case, especially if you had not been forewarned of a slippery floor or some loose wires, you need to get in touch with us immediately to discuss your situation.
Wrongful death refers to the scenario in which an injured party passes away. The compensation claim for that individual then moves to their next of kin and owners of the deceased estate. Although slightly different from personal injury, it is still significant.
If your close friend or a family member has sadly passed away due to negligence or an accident, then you may be the recipient of compensation. As a West Virginia plaintiff attorney experienced in criminal defense, we know how to handle this kind of claim best. Get in touch for more information.
Deliberate Intent – Mandolidis Claims
Not all personal injury compensation claims result from an ‘accident.’ Unfortunately, some of these are intentional where an employer puts an employee in an unsafe and dangerous working environment. These claims are called mandolidis claims. They following must be proven:
- Dangerous or unsafe working conditions existed
- High probability of risk, injury, or death to the worker
- The unsafe working condition was in violation of a specific state or federal safety statue, rule, or regulation, or
- Was in violations of common safety standards or regulations
- The employer had knowledge of the unsafe working condition and high probability of serious injury or death
- Despite the facts indicating that there was a serious risk of harm and that common safety issues were violated, the employer nevertheless still places the worker at risk by placing them in the working environment
- The employee experienced sever injury or death
As a plaintiff’s attorney experienced in criminal defense in West Virginia, we regularly encounter these claims and are well quoted to assess your circumstances and offer advice. As ever, you will not pay for our services if a compensation claim is unsuccessful.
