The Top Three Mistakes People Make in Personal Injury Cases

When you've been injured due to negligence by another party, the most important thing is getting well. In most cases, that means getting the money you need to pay hospital bills, lost wages and rehab. Unfortunately, three big mistakes can get between you and your settlement.

What if My Employer Refuses to Pay me?

When you leave a job in West Virginia, whether you quit with notice, quit without notice or were fired, your employer has to pay you for hours worked. But what if your employer hasn't paid you in the time allowed, and wont' return phone calls, emails or see you in person?

How Can I prove age discrimination?

Age-related discrimination claims are on the rise: between 1997 and 2007, there were between 16, 000 and 19,000 age-related discrimination claims filed each year. But since 2008, those numbers have risen to between 23,000 and 25,000 claims each year. At the same time, it's gotten harder and harder to win age-discrimination lawsuits.

What happens if I believe I got fired wrongly?

Almost everyone has been in a work situation that wasn't fair. Whether you didn't get a raise or promotion that you deserved, someone else got one who didn't deserve it or got it based on work you did. Maybe you got a raise or promotion that you didn't deserve, or got an account you didn't work for. We let these little inequities slide at work every day. As they say, fair is for five-year-olds.
