It is unfair that an accident victim in West Virginia should suffer because of the actions of a motorist. Fortunately, the law provides the opportunity for victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents to seek financial compensation.
Car accidents can occur for many reasons, including drunk driving, speeding and other negligent or reckless actions. Victims may be left facing unexpected medical bills, lost wages from missed work and long-term rehabilitation.
