Workplace Injury Attorneys Serving West Virginia

If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to benefits to cover lost wages and medical bills that you have incurred as a result of the accident. At Hoover Andrews, PLLC, we will help you analyze what will be covered by workers' compensation and any potential additional claims.

This can include deliberate intent claims. These cover accidents that occurred when the employer knew something was dangerous and failed to take the necessary steps to fix the issue or prevent the accident. For instance, there may be equipment that is known to be faulty, defective or in disrepair. If the employer is notified of this risk yet fails to fix the equipment or protect employers and the equipment causes an accident or injury, the employer can be held accountable for the negligence and fault.

We will carefully evaluate the details of the accident to determine where fault lies and where diligence should have been done to protect the injured worker. State law sets forth certain criteria that must be shown for the case to be considered for deliberate intent. We will knowledgeably prepare a case that demonstrates the employer's wrongdoing in those areas.

We also routinely handle third-party claims for employees that have been injured because of a person or company other than the employer. This third party may include contractors, manufacturers of equipment, vendors and other individuals present at the scene of the accident. These claims are in addition to any workers' compensation or deliberate intent claims with compensation being awarded above and beyond those benefits.

We know what needs to be done, and we take care of everything on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will not have to front any of the costs or expenses of the case, instead only paying a fee if you are awarded compensation.
