When is an Injury Considered Serious?

When you have been injured, you may feel like your injuries are minor. In West Virginia, a serious injury is one that:

  • leaves a serious, permanent disfigurement,
  • involves the loss or impairment of an organ or other body part,
  • has a substantial risk of death, or
  • causes death.

Even if your injuries do not fit any of these definitions, you may be entitled to compensation from the responsible party. Let Tammy Bowles Raines evaluate your case to determine the best resolution.

What Causes a Serious Injury?

While most people associate personal injury claims with vehicle wrecks, serious injuries can occur in a variety of situations, such as:

  • Premises Liability – Injuries caused by negligence, including lack of warning signs, poor lighting, or other maintenance issues.
  • Poorly maintained sidewalks or driveways.
  • Spills or other hazards in a public place causing a fall.
  • Defective products, machinery, or equipment.
  • Unsafe working conditions.
