Q: How do I file a personal injury claim. I live in Jefferson Co WV. I was hurt in a car accident that was not my fault.
A: I would recommend that you speak with a local West Virginia personal injury attorney regarding your accident and filing a claim for damages. Be wary of giving statements to and negotiating with the insurance company representative, as you don't want to unwittingly say anything that may harm your claim or worse, settle your claim for less than what it is worth. Keep in mind that WV has a 2-year statute of limitations, within which you must file your claim to preserve your right to seek damages. I hope this information is helpful.
