Wrongful Death and Serious Injury

If you’ve lost a family member or loved one due to the negligence of another party, you – the surviving family – has a right to recover for your loss. Unfortunately, while family members are grieving their loss, insurance companies often try to take advantage of this difficult time by approaching the family and offering unreasonably low settlement offers. In such a difficult time, you should not face the insurance companies alone.

We know what difficult decisions you face and how to navigate those issues in way that takes the burden off your, our client, and give you the necessary time to heal. Likewise, serious injury cases can often lead to a period of emotional recovery for family members, in addition to the physical recovery of the injured. At these unfortunate times, you need attorneys who are compassionate, understanding and experienced. The attorneys at the Olivio Law Firm, PLLC in Charleston, West Virginia can help you through your time of need, take the burden off and handle every aspect of your claim.

Wrongful death or injury may be the result of negligent or intentional conduct on the part of the offending party. In a wrongful death or accident claim, it is important that the victim or, in the case of death, the heirs, receive proper compensation. However, there are sometimes other reasons for pursuing such a case. In many situations, the case itself will help prevent others from being injured or killed in the same manner in the future.
