West Virginia Personal Injury Attorneys
Managing Partner Eric Chaffin was raised in Hancock County, West Virginia, graduating from Oak Glen High School. Before his father passed away, he was a steelworker at Weirton Steel across the street from the firm’s Weirton, West Virginia office. It is with great pride that Chaffin Luhana LLP in 2013 brought its national reputation of high-quality legal representation to plaintiffs in West Virginia.
Like our Pittsburgh office, our West Virginia office focuses on personal injury cases. Our firm is unique from any other West Virginia area personal injury law firm because of our diverse and experienced team, and because we approach personal injury cases with the same high-quality representation that we do for our national complex plaintiffs-only practice.
The Chaffin Luhana LLP team includes former state and federal prosecutors, former state and federal law clerks, court-appointed leaders in complex litigation, former large defense firm attorneys who know the defense playbook, and caring and compassionate staff including a social worker.
No other plaintiffs-only injury law firm in West Virginia boasts a team with such high-quality training and experience. We take pride in how our experienced team supports our clients and their needs after life-changing injuries.
Our approach to personal injury cases also sets us apart in West Virginia. We approach each case first by doing a thorough investigation and understanding our clients’ injuries. We then work to make the case and injuries easy to understand. And, we regularly focus our cases before a focus group so we know what the likely result of a trial will be before we get there.
OUR FIRM, WITH ITS UNIQUE APPROACH, HAS BEEN KNOWN TO TAKE ON PERSONAL INJURY CASES THAT OTHER ATTORNEYS HAVE PASSED ON, AND ACHIEVED EXTRAORDINARY RESULTS.

Beyond Average Results in West Virginia
For example, a referring attorney came to us from Texas for a woman whose husband was killed on a seismic testing drill buggy while working for his out-of-state employer in West Virginia. Another Texas law firm had told the widow that she had no case and no hope of recovery. We took on the case and dove into the complex regulations and industry standards for the seismic drilling industry.
Through our investigation and discovery, we determined that the employer failed to comply with important industry safety regulations in modifying the drill buggy, which resulted in the buggy rolling over and crushing our client’s husband. We were able to get the family answers as to what happened, closure to this tragic event, and a multi-seven figure recovery despite another law firm telling the client that she should not pursue the case. We are particularly proud of meaningful results like these that we have achieved for our clients.
You Can Expect Compassion & Empathy
“My father was a union witness at an arbitration in a steel mill. After the hearing, my father, dressed in blue jeans and a sweatshirt, stuck out his hand to shake hands with the company’s lawyer. The lawyer refused. The lawyer unfortunately frowned upon working class people like my family. I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. My dad used this story to remind me to respect others, to remember where I came from and as an example of how not to conduct myself as a lawyer.”
