There are over 30 million injuries annually in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The Personal Injury area of law is based in the civil court system (not criminal court) and attempts to find justice for the injured person by making them whole economically. The court cannot remove a person’s pain or bring back a loved one; however, the court can try to compensate an injured person or their family financially. At the Katz, Kantor, Stonestreet & Buckner law firm, we are proud to represent our clients who have been injured or lost a loved one due to the actions or inaction of another person. We will get you the justice you deserve by getting you the compensation you need to make you whole again. If you need someone to be your voice for justice, call us at 304-431-4050 or contact us online.
What is a Personal Injury?
The injury can be an injury to the body, the mind, or the emotions caused either by an intentional act or the negligence of another person. The injuries can be any type of injury, but can include spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. A personal injury can be caused by many different kinds of accidents, including automobile, truck or motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, defective products, exposure to toxic substances, and more.
Compensation for Injuries
When someone is injured, they suffer in many ways. He or she may have physical damage to their body like broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or diseases that are fatal or disabling. In addition, there is the loss of enjoyment of life, for example if someone loved to jog or walk their dog before an accident, and after that accident they can no longer jog or walk their dog. An injured person is likely to miss some work, or perhaps he or she will be unable to return to work ever again. The injury may cause emotional suffering as well. Under what is called tort law, the court is able to compensate injured individuals when someone is responsible for their injuries.
If you have been injured, you may be entitled to this type of compensation. You need an experienced attorney to ensure that your rights are protected and that you get the maximum possible compensation. You need to act quickly if you have an injury because the court puts a time limitation on how long you have to bring someone to court to be held responsible for the injuries they have caused you. If you miss this window, you will be unable to get the compensation you need and deserve.

We take care of our clients like family by handling your property damage claim (for example the damage to your car in a car accident) without any additional fee. We also work on a contingency basis, meaning that you don’t pay us anything unless we win. Unlike most law firms, we will not base our fee off of the whole amount you recover; instead, we will only take a percentage of money recovered above the initial offer from the insurance company.
We have two offices in Princeton and Bluefield, West Virginia to serve you.
