Parkersburg Personal Injury Lawyers Serving West Virginia & Ohio

Insurance companies know the lawyers who have a reputation for being strong in the courtroom. If you don’t have a strong lawyer, they see it as an opportunity to pay out less than they should. When an insurance company pays less than the full value of a claim, the costs are shifted to everyone else in the community while the insurer keeps the profits. Don’t let them do this to you – your case matters.

What Type of Case Do You Have?

You’re vulnerable after a serious car wreck – and the insurance company knows it. They know you need money to pay medical bills and household expenses, especially if your injuries prevent you from working. They want to make your claim go away as cheaply as they can. Our goals are different. At Jim Leach Attorneys at Law, we are ready to fight for your right to full compensation for all of your losses. Don’t sell yourself short by giving in to the insurance company’s tactics. Get serious help from a serious lawyer.

Motorcyclists are vulnerable not only on the road, but also in the courtroom. Insurance companies like to play on popular prejudices and stereotypes about bikers in order to limit their losses. At Jim Leach Attorneys at Law, we know that motorcycle riders are responsible. In fact, bikers are usually more cautious than other drivers. We proudly stand up for injured motorcyclists who were hurt because of someone else’s carelessness. We won’t let insurance companies shift the blame to the victim.

Some of the worst crashes involve 18-wheelers, dump trucks and other heavy trucks. That means the stakes are often higher – and the insurance companies are ready to put up a strong fight. You need a lawyer who is ready to take on the trucking companies and their insurers. Jim Leach has what it takes to handle the most complex crash cases like those involving heavy trucks. Let us investigate what really happened in the crash and find every potential source of recovery – and then fight for every cent you are due.

Accidents can cause a wide variety of personal injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, burns and much more. Injuries often result in high medical bills and missed work, along with unbearable pain and emotional trauma. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, get the legal help you need.

You shouldn’t have to pay the price because someone else didn’t make sure their property was safe. Whether it was a business, homeowner or government agency that failed to take care of their property, they may be held responsible for the consequences.
