Automobile Crashes Can Happen Anywhere, Anytime

Here in Wheeling, West Virginia, driving on Interstate 70 can be just as dangerous as driving around curving rural roads. With distracted drivers, dangerous weather conditions and other factors changing minute by minute, getting into a crash is a real possibility no matter how safe or defensive you're driving.

Gellner Law Offices helps those who have been injured in a crash caused by another driver. Whether you have suffered whiplash, a head injury or broken bones, you may be entitled to compensation to help cover medical expenses, pain and suffering damages and other costs. Our lawyer, Gregory A. Gellner, will lead you through the legal process from start to finish.

Help With Any Kind Of Vehicle Crash

Our firm takes on auto crash cases of all types. Some of the most common include the following:

  • Motorcycle accidents: Many drivers do not see motorcyclists or drive too close to them, resulting in dangerous crashes or the motorcyclist having to lay down their bike to avoid a direct impact through no fault of the motorcyclist
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents: Walking and bicycling are becoming more popular modes of transportation, and drivers need to be aware of them. Pedestrians and bicyclists have increased risk of being hit by a motorist.
  • Semi accidents: Semis are dangerous, difficult machines to operate. Any distraction or aggressive driving by a semi driver can turn into a serious crash very quickly. Right now in West Virginia, there are many oil and gas trucks on our roads. Many are operated by out of state companies and drivers that are not familiar with the roads and who try to take the trucks where they don't belong, causing serious injury.
  • Distracted driving accidents: With cellphones, texting, music players, radios, passengers and other factors providing a constant source of distraction for drivers, crashes due to distracted driving are especially prevalent.

Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side

In all of these cases, it is important to understand that insurance companies are not on your side. They are seeking the lowest possible settlement in the quickest amount of time. More often than not, you are entitled to much more than the insurance company initially offers.

You need an attorney like Mr. Gellner to help you negotiate and speak with insurance companies. Your job should be to get the medical care you need and recover from your injuries. Let us do the worrying about your case. We will not let the insurance company treat you like you have done something wrong when it was not your fault or take advantage of you. Gellner Law Offices has recently helped an auto crash victim reach a settlement of $2.75 million.
