Small Firm. Big Results.
Our firm is small by choice. This allows us to give your case the attention it deserves. We limit our caseload to only high-quality cases which leads to the highest level of personal attention for our clients, and, in turn, maximizes their recoveries. We fight for the rights of everyday people. Though we are small in number, we are not afraid to take on big corporations to fight for justice for you. We are For the People.
Comprehensive Personal Injury Representation
When someone is injured due to the negligence of another party, typically the recovery is obtained from the insurance policy of the person or party responsible for the injury. Insurance companies spend a great amount of resources to protect themselves. Unfortunately, the goal of many insurance companies is to get injured parties to settle for as little as possible. This is why it's important to have an advocate fighting for you to ensure that you receive the recovery that you deserve. It is common for insurance companies to exclude, or severely discount, the amount and types of compensation that you are entitled to including:
- Past and future medical treatment, monitoring and rehabilitation
- Lost wages and related income missed from being injured
- Physical pain and suffering as well as emotional and psychological distress
- Loss of enjoyment / quality of life
- Punitive damages against the party or parties responsible for your injuries
Medical Malpractice, Asbestos Exposure & Mesothelioma
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a serious accident or other circumstance that left you injured, it is difficult to know where to turn. While you want to focus on recovery, it's only natural to be concerned with past and present medical bills as well as the myriad of costs and missed wages that come with being seriously injured. While there is no shortage of personal injury lawyers serving West Virginia, the Sutter Law Firm, PLLC aims to be much more than just another law office. We are very selective of the amount of cases that we take on to ensure that our clients receive our undivided attention and the best representation possible.
