Personal Injury Cases
If you or a significant other has suffered from critical or disastrous injuries as a result of another party’s negligence, it can be overwhelming.
Medical treatment and rehabilitation can be extremely expensive and adapting to lifestyle changes can be challenging. Taking care of an injured loved one is both emotionally stressful and financially draining.
Our lawyers are highly skilled and experienced in numerous categories of civil and commercial litigation, and we help clients who have experienced car accidents, medical malpractice, motorcycle accidents, burn injuries, truck accidents, nursing home abuse, and workplace injuries, among others.
In West Virginia, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, physical therapy costs, lost wages, and all other expenses resulting from your accident.
Your personal injury lawyer will help you prove the degree of your injuries so that you can receive the highest amount of compensation for your suffering, both economic and non-economic.
In some cases, you may even be able to receive punitive damages.
Employment Law Cases
Our experienced Morgantown attorneys also routinely handle employment law cases.
If you have been a victim of sexual harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation at work, we are prepared to fight to protect your employment rights.
West Virginia law strictly forbids workplace discrimination based on the age (40 and older), sex, race, religion, disability (physical or mental, blindness), AIDS/HIV status, and even off-duty tobacco use.
Furthermore, federal law makes it illegal to discriminate based on the following national origin, citizenship status, and genetic information.
The Human Rights Commission strictly enforces state anti-discrimination laws throughout West Virginia.
It is crucial that you recognize your rights, as it will help you avoid being taken advantage of by an employer or coworkers.
Our experienced Morgantown employment lawyers will use our vast skills and extensive resources to fight for your rights as a worker in West Virginia.
Family Law Cases
The compassionate attorneys of Goddard & Wagoner assist clients with a variety of family issues, including child custody, divorce, separation, alimony, property division, domestic violence, adoption, marital agreements, modifications, and paternity disputes.
Family law cases can be extremely sensitive matters that should not be handled by just any attorney.
Our lawyers are dedicated to treating clients with the care and respect they deserve as well as achieving the best results possible in each case.
Oil and Gas Leases
Our law firm deals with oil and gas leases throughout West Virginia.
Unconventional drilling methods can lead to complex legal issues.
The concerns of every landowner are slightly different.
Our attorneys are experts in gas and oil law throughout the Appalachian Basin.
Unlike other law firms, we appreciate the market conditions in our area.
We have a long track record of successfully representing interests of West Virginia’s mineral owners and small producers.
Our lawyers are extremely competent at helping West Virginia mineral owners and landowners negotiate the best conceivable deals for their property.
For new leases, we help owners secure higher advance bonuses and royalty percentages.
Our attorneys can effectively negotiate lease terms to protect surface rights, safeguard water supplies, and specify the location of wells, roads, and equipment.
For owners who have aged leases, we can assist in negotiating revised leases that guarantee producers completely develop all resources, so the owners can receive the maximum value from the renegotiated leases.
Another area of focus is disputes over ownership rights.
In West Virginia, sometimes it is unclear who owns what.
When land or mineral owners cannot reach an agreement on the details of ownership rights, our lawyers can help.
We effectively preserve, restore and maximize our clients’ rights to land and resources.
