We are relentless in our search for answers

A hallmark of our firm is our tenacious search for the truth. Although many injury cases are straightforward, our lawyers have served many clients who did not realize that pollutants, pesticides, chemicals, or dangerous drugs caused their debilitating illnesses or killed a family member. Even their medical doctors did not discover these toxins were the source of their diseases. In some cases, clients did not originally know they had a legal case to recover rightful damages. But the attorneys at Calwell Luce diTrapano PLLC were there to offer:

  • Knowledge —Our seasoned team of West Virginia attorneys has more than two centuries of combined experience focusing on personal injury, products liability, medical malpractice, wrongful death, contaminated property remediation, pesticide litigation, workplace injuries, nursing home negligence and abuse, inmate injuries and deaths, and environmental contamination cases across the country. You get the benefit of our shared knowledge, and that of top-notch experts we enlist, such as medical professionals, accident reconstructionists, scientists, engineers and specialists, to assist us in proving your case.
  • Approachability — Our practice is dedicated to helping people who are our neighbors and friends. You’ll find a welcoming atmosphere at our firm that immediately gives you peace of mind.
  • Advocacy — Our lawyers conduct a thorough investigation to expose hidden or overlooked causes of injuries, illnesses and damages. Once we have the facts, we utilize our skills and resources to achieve the results you deserve.

In every injury case we undertake, Calwell Luce diTrapano PLLC is determined to find answers and to hold wrongdoers accountable for the harm they have caused.
