Car Accidents

Getting You the Justice and Compensation You Deserve

When you suffer a sudden injury in a car accident, the effect on your life, your career and your family can be devastating. The last thing you should have to worry about is whether you will recover money for your losses. As your lawyer, I will go to work immediately to see that you are properly compensated so you can concentrate on your health and your family.

I am attorney J. Burton Hunter, III, and I’ve been a lawyer in Buckhannon, West Virginia, for more than 32 years. A significant portion of my practice has been dedicated to representing victims of car accidents, truck accidents and other types of personal injury accidents. In West Virginia, you can recover compensation for injuries suffered in accidents as long as you were 49 percent or less at fault.

Compensation for Car Accident Victims

As your lawyer, I will negotiate a settlement with the insurance company or vigorously litigate your injury claim to ensure that you receive full compensation for all of the damages you have suffered, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Future medical bills and lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent injury and disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages (in cases of extreme negligence such as drunk driving)

I will investigate all sources of insurance to help you make the fullest possible recovery after a car accident. In one of the car accident cases I handled, the at-fault driver only had $20,000 in liability coverage. I was able to find $1.5 million in additional compensation for my severely injured client through uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, umbrella coverage and stacked insurance policies.

Contingency Fee Representation

Most lawyers charge 30 percent to 40 percent of your recovery whether your auto accident case needs to be tried in court or not. If I am able to resolve your case through negotiations with the insurance company without going to trial, I will only charge from 10 percent to 25 percent of your recovery as attorney fees. If I am not able to make a recovery in your case, I charge no attorney fees at all.
