    Charleston Attorneys Heavens Law Wins $400,000 in Pedestrian Accident Case


    Chris Heavens of Heavens Law Firm, a Charleston personal injury firm, is also licensed to practice in Pennsylvania. Mr. Heavens has won several large cases in the Philadelphia area, including one involving the injury of a pedestrian due to the negligence of a company driver for a home health care company.

    June 19, 2013—Charleston, West Virginia—Chris Heavens, a prominent Charleston personal injury lawyer, was able to negotiate a $400,000 settlement for one of his clients in case number 02-1816 in the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia County.

    Said Charleston personal injury attorney Chris Heavens, "This settlement will go a long way towards helping my client to recover his quality of life. We are proud to have obtained this settlement to help him and his family to get back on their feet again."

    In court documents filed in Mistecka vs. Burman’s Home Health Care, Inc, the victim was presented as a self- employed contractor struck by a van driven by an employee of a home health care agency. Court documents allege that the victim was near his truck looking for a tool in the back when he was struck. As a result of the impact, the victim was thrown into the street, suffering a fractured leg. Further medical documents detail the victim's increased pain and suffering as a likely result of the accident. Due to this pain, the victim alleged he had been out of work, experiencing a loss of income and other expenses related to the accident.

    Initially, the insurance company refused to pay the victim's medical bills. Court documents show the insurance company claimed the victim was standing in the middle of the street when he was struck. To recover these funds, the victim hired a personal injury lawyer in Charleston. Represented by Chris Heavens of Heavens Law, the victim gained a sizeable settlement of $400,000 to pay medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
