Fatal Car Accidents

Experienced, compassionate representation

A car accident in West Virginia can cause a wide range of injuries. Unfortunately, sometimes those injuries are fatal. Loved ones are left to mourn their loss, and if the person was a provider, family members are also left in a tough financial situation. The fatal car accident attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC help family members get justice for their loved one.

Our attorneys believe the negligent parties in the accident that took a person's life need to be held accountable. A fatal car accident may have been caused by a driver who was distracted, drowsy, drinking, texting or speeding. In some cases, there may have been a mechanical defect that led to the accident, and we can seek to hold manufacturers responsible.

We know how devastating the loss of a loved one can be. That's why we dedicate ourselves to doing the work necessary to build a strong case that gets you compensation. We want your focus to be on your family during this difficult time. Our legal team will pursue your claim and fight to recover the damages you are owed.

A wrongful death claim can help you seek compensation and closure

Following the death of a loved one in a fatal car accident, family members can seek compensation for medical and funeral expenses, as well as loss of financial support. We can also seek compensation for damages such as loss of personal companionship and pain suffering. In some cases, there may also be punitive damages.

No amount of money can replace the loss of your loved one. But it can help pay for expenses related to the accident and give your family financial stability as you try to move forward. And it is a way to hold negligent parties responsible for what happened.

Our attorneys help grieving families move forward

Our firm conducts an investigation of the accident to determine who was at fault. This includes reviewing all documentation, examining all evidence and interviewing all witnesses. If necessary, we will consult accident reconstruction experts and financial experts. We will do what it takes to build the strongest case possible.

Many times, we are able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs. But if the insurance company resists, we will be ready to fight for your loved one in court. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators and talented litigators and know how to get results.

We invite you to talk to one of our attorneys for a free consultation, fully confidential and with no obligation. We can explain how our firm can help you and answer your questions. Simply contact us at your convenience.
