What should I do if I get in a truck accident in West Virginia?
First, check for injuries and receive the necessary medical care. Then, contact law enforcement so they can write an official truck accident report, which can be a valuable document when you're building your case with your personal injury attorney. Collect as much information as you can, including photographic evidence, witness statements, and the truck driver's information.
What is the settlement for a truck accident in West Virginia that I should expect?
West Virginia truck accident settlements vary greatly, so it would be disingenuous to give you a number you should expect. Your specific settlement will depend on factors including medical expenses, lasting injuries, who was at fault, and the policy limits of the vehicle that injured you. Because truck accidents are often serious, these settlements can reach the hundreds of thousands or the millions. Lawyers from our network will work with you to reach a fair settlement price.
Is hiring a truck accident lawyer in West Virginia necessary?
While it is not mandatory to hire a West Virginia truck accident lawyer, truck accidents can be serious and involve large companies (and large legal teams). By hiring professional legal help, you can make sure that you have an advocate in the aftermath of the crash—a truck accident lawyer who can help you discover what happened and what's the best path for moving forward.
How much does a truck accident lawyer in West Virginia cost through Mighty's network?
Mighty Law's network of lawyers works on a contingency basis, so you only pay if you receive a payout. For truck accident cases that settle directly, you'll be charged a pre-suit fee of 33% of the final gross settlement or less. Cases involving a lawsuit have a post-suit fee of 40% or less. We're not here to make things harder, so in most cases if you are referred by a Mighty Law attorney your fee will be 10% lower than the industry average.
What does the process look like to get started filing my claim?
The process begins with an initial screening where we learn the basic facts of your case. If our network of West Virginia truck accident attorneys can help, you'll be signed to a standard retainer agreement that dictates our relationship and the fees you'll pay us and your West Virginia attorney. This includes language that makes it clear your attorneys only get paid if you win your case. After you're signed to a retainer, you'll be connected with a case manager to collect important documents, including insurance information, medical bills, and more.
Lawyers from our network will also help you create a treatment plan to follow during this time. Once they have the required documents, your lawyers will assemble your claim and negotiate with the insurance company. If your truck accident case does not reach a settlement, they may file a lawsuit on your behalf.
What happens once I am offered a settlement for my truck accident case?
If you're satisfied with the settlement amount, you'll sign a legal release and your case is resolved. Your lawyers take their fees out of the gross settlement and start the reimbursement process. Then you'll be rooted on as you keep on truckin'.
