Law Firm Practice Areas

Working with West Virginia attorneys who have a laser focus on their practice areas gives you an advantage in the courtroom.  Our attorneys are licensed to practice in West Virginia and have represented thousands of WV residents.  Each case and situation are unique.  We have licensed attorneys that provide cutting edge strategies and an unparalleled work ethic.

When a person suffers a serious injury in an accident, it can be devastating.  The personal injury attorneys at Gold, Khourey & Turak know that recovery from a serious injury can be and often is a long, slow, and painful process.  Hospitalizations, treatments by different specialists, and rehabilitation can last months if not years until an injury is fully healed.  Sometimes, an injury never fully heals and can cause permanent disability.

In addition, our West Virginia personal injury lawyers know that people suffering from serious injury carry the stress of dealing with insurance companies, loss of work, and loss of income.  For many people, the burden of recovery from a serious injury is often too much to handle alone.  The physical, emotional, mental, and financial strain can simply be too much to bear for many people suffering from a serious injury after an accident.

People who have suffered from a serious West Virginia personal injury need help.  They need the help of a knowledgeable, experienced, and trusted West Virginia personal injury lawyer.  That’s because a West Virginia personal injury lawyer can ease the burden on those suffering from a serious injury and help them obtain the compensation they deserve.  A skilled personal injury lawyer can help an injured person focus on what is most important—recovering and getting back to normal as quickly as possible.

We all trust that our nurses, doctors, and other healthcare providers will provide us with the best care possible.  While most do, medical errors caused by the carelessness of healthcare providers is a shockingly common occurrence.  When a person is injured or killed due to such an error, they need the assistance of a West Virginia medical malpractice attorney. 

West Virginia medical malpractice cases are typically complex and can be very costly cases to pursue.  That’s because medical malpractice cases ordinarily require in-depth knowledge of medical procedures and standards.  Expert witnesses that are vital to a case can be extremely expensive.  You want a West Virginia attorney that has the knowledge to “talk the talk” with your expert.  You don’t want to pay an expert to educate your attorney.  A medical malpractice lawyer that navigates these complexities and keeps costs under control can mean all the difference in obtaining the justice and compensation you deserve. 

Profits over people.  Unfortunately, that seems to be the unwritten motto of many nursing home facilities across West Virginia.  When nursing home facilities put profits over people, injuries to residents can and do occur.  We’ve seen it time and time again and the results are often devastating.

The rules, regulations, and laws surrounding nursing home facilities in West Virginia can be complex.  Moreover, evidence can be hard to uncover due to the vulnerability of an injured loved one who has memory or other cognitive issues, cannot communicate well, or is incapacitated in some other manner.  That’s why when a loved one has been injured as a result of West Virginia nursing home abuse or neglect, you need an attorney who has the experience and compassion to obtain the justice your family deserves.  It’s more than just about obtaining compensation—it’s also about holding nursing home facilities, their owners, and their employees accountable for placing profits over people. 

We all know that dealing with an insurance company can be frustrating.  Regardless of whether it’s an automobile claim, life insurance claim, or property damage claim, trying to get an insurance company to pay on a claim is often a maddening process.  To make things worse, many insurance companies seek to pay less than what a claim is worth or worse yet, they seek to avoid paying valid claims altogether.

When that happens, having a skilled and experienced West Virginia insurance dispute lawyer on your side may be vital to getting your claim paid.  The best West Virginia insurance dispute lawyers, like those at GKT, will pursue what is called a “bad faith” claim against the insurance company.  In a West Virginia bad faith insurance lawsuit, the insured seeks additional compensation to punish an insurance company for its wrongful actions.  Whether a person has a bad faith insurance claim is not an easy question to answer and another reason why it’s so important to contact a knowledgeable insurance dispute attorney as soon as possible.  The West Virginia lawyers at GKT can help. 

Since the Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale boom started in 2005, Gold, Khourey & Turak’s oil and gas lawyers have helped hundreds of people across West Virginia maximize the value of their oil and gas minerals and negotiate agreements that protect and favor them over the gas companies.  

At GKT, we know that a landowner’s most valuable asset may be their oil and gas minerals.  Our West Virginia oil and gas lawyers take that seriously and do everything to obtain the very best deal possible for their clients.  Whether it’s an oil and gas lease or a pipeline negotiation or something else, what that means is putting more money into the pockets of our clients—even after our fees are taken into account. 

When a dispute arises between a landowner and an oil and gas company, GKT’s West Virginia oil and gas lawyers are ready to provide immediate assistance and fight for our clients’ rights.  Whether it’s a dispute over royalty deductions, a mineral trespass claim, or a quiet title lawsuit, our oil and gas lawyers have the knowledge and experience to handle any West Virginia oil and gas lawsuit. 

Social Security Disability Lawyers help disabled people receive the disability benefits they deserve.  Suffering from a disability can be extremely painful, stressful, and frustrating to say the least.  When someone is unable to work due to a disability, the last thing they should have to worry about is receiving social security disability benefits. 

Unfortunately, many people who are entitled to social security disability benefits are denied.  When someone is denied disability benefits, the help of a knowledgeable and experienced social security disability lawyer is key to obtaining a favorable outcome. 

When disability benefits are denied, Gold, Khourey & Turak’s social security disability lawyers can help.  If you’ve been denied disability benefits in West Virginia, our social security disability lawyers have the skill necessary to get you the benefits you deserve.  Even more, GKT’s West Virginia social security disability lawyers know how stressful the social security disability appeals process can be.  That’s why our disability lawyers do everything possible to make the appeals process as stress-free as possible.
