Civil Rights

Sat, 22/09/12 - 00:39

Civil rights cases involve violations of constitutional rights by agents of the state or federal government.  Examples of civil rights cases include the  denial of free speech rights by the state or federal government, the denial of Due Process rights, and violations of civil rights by police officers or other governmental officials.  Both West Virginia and federal law provides remedies for those whose civil rights have been violated.

Sexual Harassment

Sat, 22/09/12 - 00:21

Hostile environment sexual harassment involves unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature which unreasonably interfere with an individual's work performance or create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. Sexual harassment can be from a member of the opposite sex or the same sex.

Wrongful Termination

Fri, 21/09/12 - 23:45

Most employees who work for private employers are considered "at will employees." This means they can be fired for any reason or for no reason. This seems unfair to most people, but it is the law. Fortunately, there are a few exceptions.

Medical Negligence

Mon, 13/02/12 - 10:11

Medical negligence is an act or omission by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of care.  Health care providers -- doctors, nurses, hospitals -- make mistakes, the same as everyone else.  In law, mistakes are sometimes referred to as "negligence."  Bringing a lawsuit to recover for those damages is a reasonable step and one with which our firm has helped other people.
