West Virginia Work Accident Attorney
If you or a loved one has been injured at work, it is important to contact an attorney experienced in litigating West Virginia work accident claims as soon as possible.

When Workers’ Compensation isn’t enough
West Virginia Workers’ Compensation benefits are designed to provide temporary financial assistance to workers who are injured in work related accidents. However, these benefits are usually inadequate to support a family when the work injury is serious or involves a fatality.
Fortunately, West Virginia law provides workers additional claims, called deliberate intent or Mandolidis claims, when they are injured at work due to workplace safety violations.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job because of a dangerous work condition, a West Virginia work accident attorney at West Law Firm may be able to help you recover lost wages and compensation for your pain and suffering. Call us today for a free consultation at 1-877-943-9378.
WV Work Injuries and “Deliberate Intent”
An employee injured in a West Virginia work related accident may be able to recover money damages above and beyond workers’ compensation benefits if he or she can establish a deliberate intent claim. An injured worker can prove a deliberate intent claim in one of two ways. Either by showing his employer deliberately injured him or by proving five statutory elements. This is much more difficult to prove than a typical accident claim like those involving car accidents.
That is why it is so important to contact an experienced West Virginia work injury lawyer as soon as possible after a workplace accident. If you have been injured at work and want to learn more about your legal rights, contact an experienced WV work accident lawyer at West Law Firm for a free consultation.
