Nursing Home Abuse is one of the most horrific legal problems you can face and Duncan Law takes it seriously. If a loved one has suffered broken bones from falls, serious infections, illness from wrong medications, malnutrition, serious bed sores, assaults by staff or other patients, unexplained hospitalization, or sexual assault while in a nursing or managed care home, you need legal help immediately. Your loved ones depend on you to protect them at their most vulnerable and Duncan Law wants to find you justice.
When a doctor, nurse, or hospital injures you or a loved one there is a legal remedy. Doctors and nurses are required to provide you with proper care during surgeries and your stay in a hospital. When they negligently fail in their actions, you need a lawyer that can ensure injuries don't go unnoticed. Medical malpractice can lead to serious problems such as birth injuries, cerebral palsy, misdiagnosis, cancer, serious surgical errors, and poor hospital care. These mistakes can have a profound impact on you or your loved ones' lives and the attorneys at Duncan Law want to reduce the amount of pain you might suffer.
An injury at work can have grave implications for your family and at Duncan Law we understand that your job is your life. When you have an injury at work, fall, hurt your back, arm, leg, shoulder, head, knee or ankle, are injured by machinery, develop carpal tunnel disease, suffer an occupational disease, or are attacked by a co-employee, it can keep you from providing for your family. North Carolina law provides specific benefits and your employer may be required to pay your medical bills and provide you and your family with benefits. Duncan Law wants to help ensure you receive all that you deserve.
