What is a “statute of limitations?”
The statute of limitations is defined as the period of time during which you can file a claim for a given kind of case. This statute varies based on the state in which you are filing a suit and the violation that has been committed. For example, a victim must file a case within two years of the time that he or she knew the malpractice had been committed. If more than two years pass before a claimant comes forward to file their case, the case will be barred and the claimant will not be able to receive compensation. Again, the statute of limitations differs depending on the type of case. If you believe that you have been the victim of personal injury, you should contact our law firm in Charleston, West Virginia as soon as possible to learn more about the statute of limitations in your particular case.
How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
In the majority of cases, personal injury lawyers at Jacobs Law Office will take your case on a contingency basis. This means that if we do not win your case, our services are free. If, on the other hand, we win your case, our fees will be taken as a percentage of your compensation.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is negligence by a medical professional that causes injury. Negligence in these cases is defined as any breach of the standard of care that another reasonable, equally qualified medical professional would have provided. When a medical professional’s negligence leads to a patient injury that would otherwise not have occurred, he/she may be guilty of malpractice. Contact our attorneys in Charleston.
Can I afford to hire an attorney?
Generally, personal injury attorneys in West Virginia do not charge any fees upfront. Instead, you will be charged on a contingency fee basis, which means that if you win your case, the lawyer will be entitled to a percentage of your award. If you do not win your case, you pay nothing. As for the expenses of your case (such as hiring medical experts to testify and obtaining medical records), we will pay the fees initially. If you win your case, the law firm will be reimbursed for their expenses out of the recovery. Contact our office located in Charleston, West Virginia today to get started on your case.
