Car Accidents in West Virginia
Under ideal conditions, an automobile is a technological wonder that takes people across long distances in a matter of minutes. However, when someone negligently or recklessly operates a car, it immediately transforms from a technological miracle into a lethal weapon of major destructive capabilities. In negligent driving situations, the injuries caused by a resulting car accident are subject to legal compensation taken from the at-fault driver.
Who is Liable in a Car Accident Claim?
Some car accidents may appear to be freak occurrence for which no one is clearly to blame. While a person may think that neither party could be blamed after such a car accident, the law imposes liability for an injury-producing collision if the driver’s conduct failed to rise to the level of care a reasonably prudent driver would exercise to prevent others from getting injured.
Types of Damages You Can Recover
Once the at-fault driver’s liability for negligence is established, the injured party must submit sufficient proof of the actual harms they suffered. The harms and losses the injured party sustained after an accident serves as the basis for which a jury can award them damages.
A damages award for injuries sustained during a car accident include the following:
- Medical expenses, hospital bills, physical therapy expenses
- Lost past income for missed work
- Diminished earning capacity
- Physical pain and torments caused by a traumatic occurrence
- Reduced quality of life

I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.
Mr. Brankamp turned a very scary, unknown legal matter into a situation we could calmly navigate through. He was polite but frank, fact finding yet empathetic. He really made us feel like he had our daughter's best interest. Even during a pandemic when we could not meet face to face, he was easy to communicate with and always kept us in the loop on what was happening. I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.- Elisha Bound
