The Home & Property Damage Law Firm You Can Trust

If your West Virginia home or commercial property has been damaged due to an unnatural act, contact the home & property damage attorneys of Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law L.C. in Morgantown. We represent the interests of those whose financial interests have been impacted as a result of the willful or neglectful acts of another individual or entity. Although most of our clients maintain insurance to protect their property, there are many cases when our clients’ homeowners and commercial property insurance are not liable to pay for damages to land or structures because the loss was caused by another party who was at fault. We represent clients who have suffered a wide range of home, property, and other damages, including:

Landslides and Soils Litigation: Mudslides, earth movement, and soil subsidence downhill from unnatural acts such as logging, fracking, and earth moving activities

Soil and Earth Movement Claims: Denial of coverage for property damage due to valid soil and/or earth movement claims

Blasting Injuries: Structural and bodily damage suffered from flying debris, structural collapse, crumbling masonry, carbon monoxide, and other safety failures caused by coal mining, fracking, quarrying, and other types of blasting

Water Diversion: Property damage caused by purposeful, unnatural change in the direction of water flow

Water Runoff: Surface or structural flooding/damage caused by storm water overflow and related unnatural water diversion

Contractor Error: Damage caused to a property as a result of a contractor’s error, untimely performance, or related negligence/wrongdoing

Construction Defects: Defective workmanship, design, systems, materials, etc. that cause property damage and/or personal injury

Property Damage: Partial or complete loss of use of property caused by a willful or negligent act

Commercial Construction Litigation: Civil lawsuits arising from construction-related disputes involving commercial property, such as negligence, defective materials and/or workmanship, mold damage, and related matters
