Providing Compassionate Guidance After Fatal Accidents
Losing a loved one is never easy. Losing a loved one because of another driver’s negligence amplifies the pain and sorrow you and your family feel after these tragic events.
I am attorney Kevin T. Tipton. At Tipton Law Offices, I represent the surviving family members of individuals killed in fatal car accidents in Morgantown, Fairmont and the surrounding communities. I will conduct a thorough analysis of your case to determine whether a wrongful death lawsuit is appropriate given the facts of the accident.
Comprehensive Knowledge Of The Law
With nearly 20 years of personal injury experience, I am an attorney with a comprehensive knowledge of the law. I can effectively guide you through this challenging period. I am committed to holding negligent drivers accountable and always acting with your best interests in mind.
What Damages Are Available?
West Virginia allows for a broad range of damages that you can recover from a wrongful death lawsuit after a fatal motor vehicle collision. These include:
- Sorrow and mental anguish
- Lost income
- Medical expenses prior to the decedent’s death
- Reasonable funeral expenses
I know that no amount of money will fully alleviate the pain you and your family are feeling. My hope is the compensation we recover will reduce the financial burdens you face as you move forward.
What Should I Do Next?
The next step to take is to speak with a lawyer about your case to help you understand your rights and legal options. Because of West Virginia’s statute of limitations, surviving family members have a brief window of time to recover compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit.
