5 IN A personal injury Case, A settlement MAy Be Best need to Know If you are injured in a car accident or other incident, someone is often legally responsible for your injury. Filing a personal injury claim could help you obtain compensation from the responsible party to pay your medical bills, as well as other losses, which are known as damages. When you settle with the other party, you accept payment for your injury and agree not to sue that party. After an accident, you may have physical, mental or emotional injuries. Even if insurance covers your medical bills, you may (depending on the circumstances) still file a claim for damages. Damages include lost wages, damage to your property, any permanent disability, rehabilitation, and present and future pain and suffering. While some personal injury cases are decided by a judge or jury in a courtroom, many are settled out of court. If your case goes to court, the process can take several years from beginning to end. If you settle the case instead, the defendant pays an agreed-upon sum of money soon after everything is signed and ready. This agreement should include a statement that you release the other party from responsibility. If you ve already filed a lawsuit in court, you will have to agree to drop the case against the other party promptly. Settlements can be reached at any point. Often, the insurance company will make a settlement offer after review of your records and medical expenses. However, some cases settle after both sides have presented evidence to the judge. In many courts, the parties are required to attend settlement conferences before starting a trial. CoMing To financial TeRMs You must provide the party responsible for your accident with information about your injuries, expenses, and your need for future treatment. Evidence might include medical records, hospital bills, pay stubs, and witness statements. The defending side may PAGE ask for PROOF FOR a medical examination APPROVAL by a doctor ONLY of toriseva law its choosing. It may hire expert witnesses to disprove your version of the case. Your lawyer can help you estimate how much money you might receive after a trial instead of accepting a settlement. Settlements may be paid in a lump sum or in periodic payments. A structured settlement involves buying financial products called annuities that pay a certain amount every month or year until the total is paid in full. This arrangement can reduce taxes but won t allow you to buy a house or other expensive item because you re getting smaller payments over time. Personal injury litigators often accept cases on contingency bases, meaning that they are not compensated, beyond expenses, unless damages are awarded. AS SEEN ON Civil litigation, Personal injury, medical device & ProduCts liability When Teresa C. Toriseva launched the firm Toriseva Law in 2008, she envisioned a practice that would promote fairness by litigating on behalf of regular people. I had clear ideas about the type of services I wanted to deliver and the type of firm I wanted to operate to make our community a better place, she says.

He has also practiced corporate transactional law in Washington, D.C. for nearly a decade. She also has been joined by attorney John Kyle, a former deputy sheriff and judicial clerk.

The firm has received recognition for its medical device litigation experience, with Toriseva having been appointed multiple times by judges to serve various leadership roles in thousands of these cases in state and federal courts across the nation.

6 legal trends West Virginia law 2013 Lawmakers in the Mountain State have worked to tighten the state s laws against drugged driving, while the state s courts evaluated whether obesity is a disability and examined a multimillion-dollar jury verdict against a negligent nursing home. West Virginia Moves to Toughen Drugged Driving Laws As of July, West Virginia drivers who operate a motor vehicle under the influence of illegal drugs will face similar penalties to those faced by drunk drivers, thanks to a new piece of legislation. House Bill 2513 was first proposed by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin in his State of the State address in February. Despite some objection from lawmakers, it went on to pass the State Senate and House of Representatives by handy majorities. When a person is pulled over for erratic driving, standard police procedure calls for a field sobriety test. When drivers fail that test, they re given a Breathalyzer test to determine whether they are under the influence of alcohol. Yet in the past, officials had no procedure to determine whether the driver was under the influence of illegal drugs. The new law allows law enforcement to analyze a driver s blood, as well, to determine whether drugs are present. For that reason, the bill faced objection by some Republicans, who argued that blood tests infringe on motorists right to privacy. Others argued that that enforcing the law would place an undue burden on law enforcement. Nonetheless, the legislation found support from both parties, and it took effect on July West Virginia s top rated lawyers \ West Virginia police officers are undergoing training to help them better recognize and deal with drugged drivers. West Virginia police hope to train their teams by the end of the year. [Drugged driving] is becoming increasingly a bigger problem in West Virginia. This goes a long way to help, Capt. Joe White, director of professional standards for the West Virginia State Police, told the Exponent Telegram. The law will also make it easier for those injured in accidents with drugged drivers to take action. Obesity is Not a Disability A discrimination case brought by a 540-pound blackjack dealer proved unsuccessful this summer. In June, the West Virginia Supreme Court upheld a lower court s finding that the petitioner s obesity is not a disability. The petitioner, who was referred to as Andrew O. in court documents, was hired by Mardi Gras Casino and Resort in the city of Nitro in April, The workplace dress code required that employees wear a company-sponsored uniform, and that shirts be tucked in. According to Andrew O., the shirt he was provided with did not fit in such a way that he could tuck it into his pants.

7 health INsURANCe FRAUD raises insurance Costs for everyone Fraud involves lying about something or deceiving someone for gain. The gain is usually financial. Health insurance is a complex system that opens the door for many types of fraud. Anyone who defrauds an insurance company is subject to a wide range of penalties, from charges under federal health care statutes to embezzlement and theft. The U.S. Attorney s Office prosecutes insurance fraud crimes. who pays for insurance fraud? Insurance fraud pushes up the cost of everything you buy and use. How? Consider the following scenario. Every company providing goods or services pays for insurance as a cost of doing business. As a result of insurance fraud the insurance company must raise rates. To cover the increased cost of insurance, the company must charge you more for goods and services. Bottom line insurance fraud makes everything more expensive for everybody. Insurance fraud is not simply a problem for insurance companies, it s a problem for all of us everybody loses and everybody pays. Insurance fraud also diverts resources from law enforcement and fire services. patient fraud May seem innocent A patient can commit insurance fraud without understanding its seriousness. For example, a person might give an insurance card to an uninsured friend or relative because that person badly needs to see a doctor, but can t afford it. Although it might seem like a kind thing to do, it s still fraud committed against the insurance company, and both the insured and the friend would be liable. Health insurance fraud also occurs when a patient uses benefits to fill forged prescriptions. insurers Can be guilty of fraud Most states require that insurers have licenses in order to do business, but occasionally unscrupulous insurers can slip around PAGE PROOF FOR APPROVAL ONLY the licensing process. When they do, they may collect your premiums but be unable to pay your claims. This is consumer fraud. You could find yourself responsible for significant medical bills. If this happens to you, speak with an attorney to explore your options More specifically, an insurance lawyer.

8 West Virginia s top rated lawyers in Virginiatoprated After receiving three reprimands for dress code and break area violations, Andrew O. was fired with less than two months on the job. Continued from page 6 informed his supervisors that he could not stand for long periods of time or walk to and from the designated employee break area, due to shortness of breath. After receiving three reprimands for dress code and break area violations, Andrew O. was fired with less than two months on the job. The petitioner filed suit against his former employer under the West Virginia Human Rights Act, claiming disability discrimination. In September 2010, the circuit court found that obesity was not considered an impairment under the WVHRA, and that the casino had legitimate and non-discriminatory reasons for firing him. This July, the state Supreme Court affirmed this decision, ruling that the casino had made reasonable accommodations for its former employee, and that the WVHRA does not grant special protection to the obese. Supreme Court Considers If No Handrail Makes Property Owners Liable In October 2009, Walter Hersh fell down a set of steps without a handrail in front of a store in Martinsburg, sustaining a head injury that has left him confined to a wheelchair. In September 2013, Hersh appealed the Berkeley County Circuit Court s ruling that had granted summary judgment to the property owners, affirming that the absence of a handrail did not make the owners liable. In arguments before the West Virginia Supreme Court in early September, the defendants argued that the absence of handrails was an open and obvious condition, thus exempting them from liability for Hersh s injuries. Hersh s attorney, Harry P. Waddell of Martinsburg, argued that when the property owners had removed the handrails to discourage local skateboarders, they violated a municipal safety ordinance and created a public hazard. In her 2011 decision in favor of the defendants, Circuit Court Judge Gina Groh wrote that neither of [the] alleged defects or conditions was hidden or unnatural. Therefore, these alleged defects or conditions are not actionable under West Virginia law. She furthermore argued that a ruling in favor of the plaintiff would mean a drastic revision of the state s premise liability law. Meanwhile, Hersh and his lawyers argue that knowingly violating a safety statute constitutes actionable negligence. Circuit Court Upholds $90 Million Jury Verdict Against Nursing Home Kanawha County Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib Jr. ruled that there will not be a new trial in a nursing home abuse case that resulted in a multi-million-dollar verdict against Heartland of Charleston. The original lawsuit was brought after Dorothy Douglas died of dehydration complications after a three-week stay at the Charleston facility. During the trial, experts claimed that the facility was understaffed, and that employees sometimes neglected patients basic needs for food and water. During her brief stay at Heartland of Charleston, Douglas lost 15 pounds and became unresponsive. In August 2011, a jury awarded Dorothy s family $91.5 million in damages, comprising $80 million in punitive damages and $11.5 million in compensatory damages. HCR Manor Care, the corporate owner of the nursing home, asked that the judge overturn the verdict and requested a new trial, arguing that West Virginia limits medical malpractice damages to $500,000. Judge Zakaib disagreed, writing that this verdict sends a clear deterrence message to a multi-billion dollar nursing home corporation that its misconduct will not be tolerated in West Virginia. HCR Manor Care plans to appeal the decision to the West Virginia Supreme Court. 8 West Virginia s top rated lawyers \ To See A Directory of All AV Preeminent Rated Attorneys in West Virginia visit

9 A BRIeF INtRODUCtION to Class action lawsuits need to Know A personal injury class allows you you to participate in a group lawsuit to recover damages for an injury that you may not have pursued on your own. The cost of litigation is shared by the entire group, so it becomes reasonable for an attorney to take the case. Class action lawsuits are particularly effective in forcing large companies to change the way they do business. Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure controls the creation of class actions filed in federal court. Every state has its own procedural rules that control class actions filed in state courts. The Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 allows an attorney to use federal class action rules in state court if any of the plaintiffs live in a different state from where the action is filed. personal injury CLass actions MUsT Be CeRTified The court must allow appropriate lawsuits to be turned into a class action. A judge determines if a class action is a fair and efficient way to handle a large number of potential cases. The plaintiff s lawyer must show that the case and the plaintiff are good representations for the injured group. If a judge agrees, he certifies the class and allows the class action to proceed. potential plaintiffs Can opt out If you are part of the group that has been injured, you must opt out of the class action if you want to sue on your own. Opting out tells the court that you do not want the results of the lawsuit to apply to you. If you fail to opt out of the class action, you lose the right to sue on your own behalf. james f. humphreys and associates, l.c. Personal injury, ProduCts liability, medical malpractice, mesothelioma, wrongful death Mass injury Cases Mass injury class actions are a more complex type of personal injury group litigation. Mass injuries are typically cases where large groups of people have been injured by a de- PAGE PROOF FOR APPROVAL ONLY fective drug or product, such as defective breast implants. It can be hard to use a class action to resolve mass torts because individual personal injuries will differ. It can be impossible to determine the size of the settlement needed to compensate plaintiffs who may develop injury symptoms in the future. Once started, the case could take more or less time to resolve than an individual lawsuit. Much depends on the defendant and how hard it fights the class claims. A case may go on for years. A judge or jury may decide who wins, but quite often class actions end with a settlement. AS SEEN ON JAMES F. HUMPHREYS The law firm of James F.
