To our valued clients:

The coronavirus outbreak has affected all of us in ways we could not have imagined. Consistent with the advice of health experts, Bailey Javins and Carter has closed its physical office to safeguard the health of our employees and to help prevent the spread of the virus. While the physical office is closed, we have made arrangements so all of our employees can work remotely from home. All Bailey Javins and Carter attorneys and staff have access to all files and can easily communicate by e-mail. Our goal is to thoughtfully respond to the health situation and still effectively work on our clients’ cases. Naturally, some work cannot move forward immediately. Courts have closed and meeting in person for deposition testimony has been postponed. This will cause some delay in the prosecution of cases. Nevertheless, we will use the time effectively to work on other aspects of our clients’ cases and be more than ready to open our doors again when normal operations return. In the meantime you can most effectively communicate with us by e-mail. If you need to call – feel free. Our phones are being forward to a staff member that is willing to help you in any way possible or get your message to an attorney or paralegal ASAP.

We are hopeful that you are all well and wish you all safe passage through this difficult time.

What We Do

For more than 40 years, one law firm has earned a solid reputation for handling some of the biggest catastrophic accident claims across the nation: Bailey, Javins & Carter, L.C.

Our attorneys have represented victims of the Upper Big Branch coal mine disaster, the Sago coal mine disaster, the Aracoma coal mine disaster, the Ghent Little General Store explosion and more. We have taken on industry giants and powerful opponents such as Consol, Massey, ICG, Eastern, Alpha, Patriot, Ford, GM, Antero Resources, Hertz and Enterprise. We are proud to have been selected to represent the State of WV in cases such as WVU’s exit from the Big East Conference, West Virginia Attorney General’s lawsuit against McKesson Corporation holding them responsible for opioid addictions in the state of West Virginia and cases where our citizens have been wronged by credit card companies and other lenders.

Who We Are

We have built a nationally recognized reputation for success in cases involving coal mine accidents, black lung and other lung diseases and gas explosion injuries, in addition to all other personal injury and workers’ compensation claims.

Wonderful people. Worked extremely hard to help me when I needed it the most they never gave up and stuck with it in till the end. Their staff was always nice and helpful every time I called and always answered any question I had

Wonderful experience with Mr. Norman, he went above and beyond and we are very happy with the settlement. I highly recommend the firm!

My husband and I met with Tim Bailey about a case that we had. Not only did him and his staff treat us with the upmost respect, they worked very hard on our case and got us exactly what we asked for. Huge shoutout to Taylor Norman for all of his late nights and hard work. Also a big thank you to Luanne for her hard work and dedication.

 If you want the Win, you have no other choice but hiring Attorney J. Ryan Stewart and Bailey, Javins, and Carter. An extremely positive outcome awaits you.

What We Do

Our lawyers provide quality and caring legal services to people like you

Our reputation for success has made us the go-to law firm for the most challenging injury and death cases. Other lawyers frequently partner with us or refer cases to us when faced with challenges of this magnitude.

Have you or a loved one suffered injuries that will prevent you from returning to work for a long time, if at all? Have you lost a family member in an accident?

Our lawyers provide quality and caring legal services to people like you. If you are entitled to compensation, we will work hard to get it to you as fast as possible. While many cases end in settlement, we will not hesitate to fight for you in court. In court and out, our success is linked to our knowledge of accidents and the industries where they occur. For example, we speak the language of coal miners. We are familiar with the tools of the trade, from continuous miners to shuttle cars to roof bolters. Not only are we aware of the dangers of roof falls and rib rolls, we are well versed in their causes. We can clearly communicate those causes to members of a jury.
