Motor Vehicle Accidents
Have you been injured in a car accident?

You can count on Attorney Reed's significant experience and hard work to hold the responsible party accountable and to obtain a recovery for you. Usually, this process requires dealing with insurance companies and often that includes not only the responsible party's insurance company, but the injured party's insurance company as well. At the Law Offices of Kelly R. Reed PLLC, we have significant experience dealing with all types of insurance issues, as well as handling all other aspects of a car wreck case from beginning to end.
Motorcycle accidents are some of the worst highway accidents in which a person can be injured. Even a minor motorcycle wreck can cause significant bodily injury with significant medical bills and lost wages. Unfortunately, many motorcycle wrecks cause catastrophic injury that may leave you with permanent damage. Tragically, many people die in motorcycle wrecks each year, often leaving behind a dependent family. We have extensive experience handling all types of motorcycle wreck cases, from the most minor to the catastrophic or wrongful death cases. We can help you get the compensation you deserve when you've been injured by someone else's carelessness.
Perhaps you have been injured in a tractor-trailer accident. Anytime a tractor-trailer is involved in a wreck, catastrophic injuries or death are highly likely to result. Tractor-trailer wrecks occur for a variety of reasons. Many involve fault on the part of the driver or are the result of some violation of trucking rules and/or regulations. At the Law Offices of Kelly R. Reed PLLC, we have not only knowledge of trucking rules and regulations, but we also have experience handling these types of claims. These claims are different from most motor vehicle wreck cases because of the rules and regulations that apply.
Medical Malpractice & Nursing Home Negligence
We trust health care professionals such as doctors and nurses to exercise care and good judgment in treating our health conditions. However, nearly 100,000 people are injured every year by medical malpractice and negligence. Anytime your doctor or nurse (or other health care provider) does not follow the appropriate standard of care, and you are injured by such, you may have a medical malpractice/negligence claim. In West Virginia, medical malpractice/negligence claims are governed by the Medical Professional Liability Act (MPLA). At the Law Offices of Kelly R. Reed PLLC, we have extensive knowledge of the MPLA and in handling medical malpractice/negligence cases, including
birth injuries such as
Nursing home injuries are another form of negligence in the medical field. In today's society, most families face the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home at one time or another. When we place a loved one in a nursing home, we entrust the nursing home staff and administration to properly care for all of our loved one's needs, including safety; nutrition and hydration; assistance with daily living; and proper medical care. Sadly, far too often, nursing home staff and/or administration allow residents to be abused or neglected in some fashion, often resulting in serious injury or death. At the Law Offices of Kelly R. Reed PLLC, we have extensive experience investigating and handling cases of nursing home abuse and/or neglect.
Workplace Accidents & Injuries
Workplace injuries often are catastrophic or result in someone's death. This is especially true in worksites such as construction sites, mines, and/or industrial plants. In West Virginia, most work place injuries are handled under the workers' compensation system and the employer is immune from liability. This means you cannot sue your employer. However, there is an exception in West Virginia called a Deliberate Intent Claim. Under the statute setting out this type of claim, you may recover against your employer for serious injury or death under certain circumstances where your employer has knowingly created an unsafe working condition or allowed one to exist. At the Law Offices of Kelly R. Reed PLLC, we have extensive knowledge and experience handling these types of cases.
