A personal injury is any wrongdoing or tort that causes bodily injury or harm to another person. The wrongdoer can be an individual, group, or corporation.
At GKT, our personal injury lawyers represent clients in a variety of personal injury cases. Some of the more common personal injury cases include car accidents, truck and tractor trailer accidents, drunk driving crashes, oil and gas accidents, coal mine accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, dangerous drugs, product liability, and nursing home abuse and neglect. If you’ve been injured in any type of accident or by any type of product or prescribed drug, you need the best personal injury law firm working for you. Contact our office today at (304) 845-9750 for a free consultation.
Every tort claim, whether the actions are intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues to satisfy: 1. Is there an individual, group, or corporation liable for the damages you sustained? and 2. What are the nature and extent of your damages? If you’re able to prove liability and damages, then you may have a personal injury claim. The areas in which most personal injury cases arise are car accidents, truck accidents, and drunk driving accidents.
The types of injuries that our personal injury lawyers handle are wide-ranging and diverse. No matter what injury a person has suffered, the personal injury lawyers at GKT have very likely seen it and have helped someone who has suffered a similar personal injury. That being said, all personal injuries are unique, and each person is unique. No two personal injuries are exactly the same regardless of the diagnosis or prognosis of the specific injury. That’s why having a top personal injury lawyer that is knowledgeable about different medical and technical aspects associated with different injuries is extremely valuable to our clients. The personal injury lawyers at GKT have that knowledge and have helped hundreds of people in West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania recover the compensation they deserve for their personal injuries. Just some of the examples of injuries include brain injuries, broken bones and muscle injuries, spine injuries, burns, and wrongful death.
The personal injury lawyers at Gold, Khourey & Turak can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. Our top personal injury attorneys will work to uncover and collect compensation from all parties at fault. Above and beyond reimbursement for medical bills and “pain and suffering,” many people don’t know what compensation they are entitled to recover for their personal injury. The following are the types of compensation persons who have suffered personal injuries may be entitled to:
Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the personal injury case, the injured person may be entitled to some, all, or even more compensation from a variety of sources. Don’t settle for less, be sure to hire the best personal injury lawyer for you and your family. The personal injury lawyers at GKT can help you determine what types and how much compensation you may be entitled to. Contact our office at (304) 845-9750 to talk to a personal injury lawyer today and get the answers you deserve.
No. Most personal injury cases are resolved without the need to go to trial, and sometimes even without the need to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, it is important to understand that your personal injury attorney will prepare as though your case is going to trial.
After you decide to hire an experienced personal injury attorney, your attorney will begin to gather the appropriate documents (accident reports, medical records, insurance policies, and so on) and begin to negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. If a settlement agreement is not reached prior to the statute of limitations, then a lawsuit must be filed to continue to pursue the personal injury claim. Failure to file a lawsuit in a timely manner can result in the loss of your right to pursue a claim. Even though a personal injury lawsuit has been filed, that still doesn’t mean that you will have to go to court. The filing of a lawsuit sometimes puts additional pressure on the insurance company to settle your personal injury claim. The insurance company doesn’t want to go to trial either, and the lawsuit typically gives your attorney more leverage in negotiating your claim. Unfortunately, there does come a time when you must decide if you want to settle with the insurance company or go to court. At that point, your attorney will speak with you about your options. The decision of whether or not to go to trial is always up to the client.
A consultation with one of our personal injury attorneys is always free, and you owe us nothing until a settlement or judgment is recovered on your behalf. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency basis. If a recovery is made, then the attorney fees come out of a pre-agreed upon percentage of the gross amount recovered. We also advance the costs associated with investigating your accident, including the cost of obtaining police, medical, and other records that are necessary to successfully represent your claim. You are responsible for these costs only if money is collected for you.
Our personal injury lawyers are available to discuss your case 24/7, 365 days a year at no cost to you. If you think you have a case, we are here to help now.
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to preserve evidence and protect your rights. Time is critical. The sooner a personal injury lawyer can get involved in your case, the better. That’s because the best personal injury lawyers will make sure that your case is immediately and thoroughly investigated to protect your rights. In addition, the best personal injury lawyers will, among other things, make sure you don’t make any statements to an insurance company that will negatively impact your case. Moreover, the sooner you hire a personal injury lawyer, the sooner you can relieve yourself of the stress and anxiety of dealing with insurance companies and focus on what’s most important—your family and your physical and emotional well-being.
This is probably the question that attorneys hear the most. Before an accurate determination as to the value of a case can be made, it is necessary to review all available information about your case, including medical records, police reports, lost wages, and medical progress. Your case may also warrant compensation for the potential of future impairment, future lost wages, ongoing treatment, and pain and suffering. Every personal injury case is different. A personal injury attorney who states that your case is worth a certain dollar amount without adequately investigating your claim is performing you a disservice. A mistake that we often see is that people who have personal injury cases wait to contact an attorney. If you are injured in an accident, it is very important that you contact our office as soon as you can so valuable information is not lost. Any delay could hurt the value of your personal injury claim.
If your claim does not involve an injury and involves only minor personal property loss, then chances are that you may not need a personal injury attorney to help resolve the issue. However, if the matter involves a serious injury or death, mounting doctor bills, ongoing treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering, you should contact our office before speaking with the insurance company. Saying the wrong thing to an insurance adjuster, or signing the wrong document, could result in you losing your right to file a claim or you could risk obtaining full compensation for your claim. Our accident attorneys know what compensation is due to people who have personal injury claims and will fight for every penny our clients deserve under the law.
All insurance companies will tell you that hiring a personal injury attorney is not necessary and they will assure you that you will receive a fair settlement, regardless of the size of the claim. You should understand that personal injury cases involve individuals who represent your insurance adjuster along with lawyers who are hired by your insurance company to serve their best interests, not yours. These individuals seek to minimize the insurance companies’ losses by aggressively defending claims and offering a “quick settlement,” with hopes of paying you less than what you are entitled to receive. Think about your job and your employer. You are hired by them to perform a service and represent them and do the best you can for your employer. It is no different with your insurance company. They hire claims adjusters and representatives to act on their behalf to handle your claim. But they are not working for you, and they are not looking out for you. They are trying to minimize your claim because that is what they are hired to do, even though they may act like they are looking out for you. At GKT, we work for you, not the insurance company. We are looking out for your best interest.
Unless you are experienced in negotiating with insurance companies, possess the knowledge to understand complex insurance issues and insurance law, and have access to all the information necessary to make an informed decision about whether a settlement offer is fair, you should contact our office and speak with one of our personal injury attorneys. We will review your case with you at no cost, then you can decide if you need an attorney – without your insurance company deciding for you.
