At the Martinsburg law office of Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson, our focus is on helping injured people obtain the care they need and to as much as possible make up for the wrong which has been done to them. There are many different types of injuries, and many different roads to recovery. We help our clients obtain a negotiated settlement, jury verdict, social security benefits, injunctions and other relief that best meet their needs.
By limiting our practice to personal injury and related matters, we have developed the familiarity and expertise with the laws and procedures that enable us to identify the applicable issues, claims and defenses and determine the best approach to getting you the maximum compensation available.
We help people who have been injured in a car, truck or motorcycle accident on West Virginia roads and highways. In addition, we represent people injured in a slip and fall on another’s unsafe premises, or who suffered serious injuries by the use of a dangerous or defective product. Our personal injury lawyers also assist families in wrongful death actions to get financial help when a loved one is wrongfully taken from them.
The purpose of Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) is to provide financial assistance to individuals who cannot work due to a disability or impairment. However, in practice the vast majority of applications for SSDI are denied. We know the system and work tirelessly to see that your just claim is honored and that you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
We put our trust in the medical profession to take care of us, even to the point of saving our lives when necessary. When doctors, nurses or hospitals let us down through incompetence, negligence or abuse, we wind up sicker or worse off then we were before the treatment or operation. Medical malpractice cases can be complex, but our firm has the knowledge and skills necessary to hold health care professionals accountable for their actions.
Often times, elderly individuals are dependant on nursing homes to provide them with the care and attention they need. Unfortunately, these same people are especially vulnerable to abuse, and many nursing homes are chronically understaffed with undertrained employees. The potential for neglect or abuse is very real, and seniors may be unwilling or unable to speak out. We stand up for seniors to stop and prevent abuse and demand the dignity and quality of life that nursing homes can provide when operating correctly in accordance with the law.
