Freeman & Chiartas advises, counsels, and represents people who have been injured through the fault of others. We can help you get just compensation for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We have extensive experience in investigating and evaluating cases, negotiating with insurance companies, and, when necessary, aggressively taking cases to trial. We have handled hundreds of personal injury cases, including:
Motor Vehicle Accidents (Plaintiff)
We have a detailed understanding of West Virginia automobile, insurance, and liability laws. We understand the different sources of recovery available to car accident victims and their families, as well as the various theories of liability that enable those victims to collect from the parties who caused them harm.
Injuries To Children
Freeman & Chiartas is dedicated to representing and protecting our most vulnerable members of society…children. Every year, as many as 20 million children in the United States are injured as the result of another party’s wrongdoing. Many of these injuries could be prevented but instead, a child’s life is forever changed. Children, by their very nature, are involved in a variety of accidents including, motor vehicle accidents, injuries caused by defective or dangerous toys, negligent or inattentive adults, dog bite injuries, lead poisoning, household fires, playground or sports injuries, and other injuries at school. Horribly, many children are also intentionally injured through child abuse, neglect, or molestation. Freeman & Chiartas can help you obtain compensation for medical care, emotional counseling, and payment for the child’s pain and suffering.
Freeman & Chiartas represents employees who are injured on the job in claims for lost wages and medical treatment expenses against private industry, federal, state, and local government employers, and their insurers. We handle issues dealing with injuries caused by third parties, through gross negligence and deliberate intent (Mandolidis claims).
Product Liability Law
We have years of experience and an excellent track record representing individuals who have been injured as a result of an unsafe product, including medications and machines that were designed, manufactured, sold, and/or furnished by a person or company. Freeman & Chiartas assists those injured individuals in evaluating and pursuing their claims and being fairly compensated for their injuries.
Injuries suffered on another’s property, whether in a home, on a sidewalk, or in a commercial building or shop, are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. If you or a family member have been injured in a slip-and-fall or other accident away from your home, you may have a premises liability claim. Contact Freeman & Chiartas for assistance and advice.
Medical Negligence Actions
Freeman & Chiartas helps clients determine whether or not medical malpractice has occurred when you or someone you love is injured as a result of negligence or the misconduct of doctors, nurses, or hospital employees. We can provide you with the latest legal information about this ever changing field. We may also be able to help you with questions and disputes regarding payment of health care benefits, health insurers, and health care providers.
Legal Malpractice Actions
Although we are attorneys, we know that many times injury victims are further victimized by the mistakes of the lawyer they hired to help them. At Freeman & Chiartas we have the experience to help you through the complicated field of legal malpractice which requires proof that the client would have received compensation for their injury claim but for the mistake/error of their previous lawyer.
Claims Against Insurance Companies
Freeman & Chiartas can help clients receive fair compensation from insurance companies who have denied claims, delayed the payment of claims, offered amounts far less than the client is entitled to (or ultimately receives), or for other bad faith or unfair claims practices.
If you’ve lost a loved one in an accident which you believe was caused in whole or in part by another person or company, Freeman & Chiartas can represent your interests against the parties at fault and their insurance companies to seek damages on your behalf.
