Teenager killed in Putnam County, WV Car Wreck

west virginia car accident lawyer posts Teenager killed in Putnam County, WV Car WreckWINFIELD, WV — A teenager died in a single-vehicle car crash on West Virginia Route 34 early Sunday morning.  Karissa Ramsey, 19, of St. Albans, was traveling toward Winfield at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.  According to a deputy with the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department, someone witnessed the crash and said Karissa was killed instantly.

Karissa was studying at Marshall University and worked at Sonic Restaurant in St. Albans, WV.  Karissa has worked at the Sonic restaurant in St. Albans since its opening three years ago, said Angie Gardener, a Sonic employee who had worked with Ramsey for more than a year.  Donations to help cover funeral expenses are being accepted at the restaurant.

An investigating officer said he believed Karissa might have survived if she had been wearing a seatbelt. Please help bring meaning to this tragedy by wearing a seat belt.  Obviously, it can make a difference in whether a person survives an unexpected car accident.

On behalf of our West Virginia personal injury law firm, our deepest condolences go out to Karissa Ramsey and Karissa’s family.

West Law Firm has great lawyers. They helped me in my case and every time I needed to call or talk to someone they were willing to talk and help me in anyway. David is the absolute best. His communication was unbelievable throughout the entire process as well as his worth ethic. He took great care of me I would highly recommend him for any auto related injury. He continually fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved!

I've worked with other attorneys in the past, but West Law Firm has gone over and above my expectations! I was expecting the same old runaround about when somebody could get to my case. They kept me up-to-date about everything. They really worked for me and I would highly recommend them.
