The experienced personal injury attorneys of Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson are dedicated to assisting victims injured by negligence in West Virginia and Maryland. With over 120 years of combined legal and trial experience, we have successfully handled many types of accident cases, recovering multi-million dollar awards for clients in Martinsburg, Charles Town, Inwood, Berkeley Springs, Falling Waters, Shepherdstown, Hedgesville, Romney, Moorefield, and other West Virginia towns and cities. Our firm is devoted to providing the finest legal representation to clients throughout the Eastern Panhandle and helping them get back on their feet.

Personal injury law is based on basic principles of negligence. Negligence refers to the breach of a legal duty that causes injury. In a car wreck, for example, a driver has a legal duty to operate his or her car safely. A driver breaches that duty by driving recklessly or not following the rules of the road, resulting in a wreck that injures another person. When this happens, at-fault drivers become liable for any harm caused by their negligence. This requires compensating the injured victim for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages related to the accident. The leading personal injury lawyers at Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson have extensive experience recovering compensation for victims injured in auto, truck, and motorcycle accidents, or other traffic collisions caused by negligence.

When an accident or work injury results in temporary or permanent disability, victims may be entitled to cash payments or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). In order to qualify, applicants must suffer from some medical condition or impairment that prevents them from working for one year or more. It is up to the applicant to prove eligibility for benefits. First, SSDI claimants must pass tests determining whether their recent earnings and work history would qualify them for monthly cash payments. Next, applicants must demonstrate a "serious" disability or condition preventing their ability to work. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney is essential to helping you through the complex application and appeals process. Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson can vastly increase your chances of obtaining the compensation and benefits you deserve.

Like drivers and employers, health care providers also have a duty to protect their patients from unreasonable harm. Any botched operation or negligence could have serious repercussions for the patient. Elderly patients, for example, are often vulnerable to abuse and neglect. The staff's carelessness can cause serious injuries, including bedsores, fractured bones, and even death. The patient's worsened condition often indicates some form of medical malpractice or nursing home abuse. West Virginia law allows injured parties to recover compensation for harm caused by physicians, dentists, staff, and medical facilities that make careless mistakes at the patient's expense. The knowledgeable medical malpractice and nursing home abuse lawyers at Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson work with top medical experts to thoroughly review the evidence and present a compelling case.

If an accidental injury results in the wrongful death of a loved one, surviving family members may sue to recover for their suffering and the damages caused by another's negligence. In wrongful death cases, the decedent's spouse, children, and other dependents may be entitled to compensation for medical and funeral costs, lost income, and emotional trauma caused by the death. At Burke, Schultz, Harman & Jenkinson, we understand that the death of a close family member is both emotionally and financially devastating, and we have helped bereaved families across West Virginia find justice for their loss.
