- Head injuries/traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Neck injuries, including whiplash

How much is my truck accident injury claim worth?
Many people simply consider the short-term expenses when calculating how much their truck accident injury claim is worth. We think long-term at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC. Your settlement or verdict should include all your accident-related expenses, now and in the future. These expenses often include:
- Vehicle replacement or repair costs
- Emergency car
- Ambulance service fees
- Overnight hospital fees
- Surgical operations
- Follow-up doctor’s visits
- Physical therapy
- In-home medical care
- Replacement income during your recovery
- Lost future income if you cannot work
- Home modifications if you sustain a permanent disability
Remember, you didn’t do anything wrong, so you shouldn’t have to pay for a truck driver’s reckless or negligent behavior. We can be your advocate for justice and we can fight for your rights.
Why should I hire a lawyer to help with my truck accident injury?
There are so many reasons why you should have an experienced truck accident lawyer in your corner, fighting for your rights, including:
- Your attorney can explain all the legal options available to you.
- Your attorney can develop a unique legal strategy to address your specific needs.
- Your attorney can thoroughly investigate your truck accident, including:
- Carefully reviewing your accident report.
- Requesting information about the truck driver (hiring records, driving history) and truck (maintenance records, accident history) from the trucking company.
- Consult with experts if necessary.
- Your attorney can negotiate with the truck driver’s insurance company on your behalf.

You often only have a limited amount of time to take legal action in West Virginia. From the date of your crash, you only have two years to file a lawsuit or take other legal action in most cases in West Virginia. Even then, two years may be too long. Evidence can disappear over time. Witnesses move away. Memories fade. This may be your only opportunity for justice.
