Bankruptcy

Nobody easily decides that they want to file bankruptcy.  Usually, bankruptcy is a last resort to escape what seems to be inescapable debt. Constant creditor calls, the pending foreclosure of a house or repossession of a car, the threat of lawsuits or the feeling that you can’t keep your head above the ocean of debt are all reasons people decide to file bankruptcy.  If you are experiencing these or similar problems we can help you.  View the bankruptcy section of our website and contact us today to set up your free consultation.

Nursing Home Abuse

Every year that goes by more and more people are entering nursing homes across North Carolina and across the country.  Despite that, some nursing homes fail to provide enough staff to provide adequate care for the increasing populations that live their final years in a nursing home.  This negligence by nursing homes may cause injuries such as broken bones, dehydration, bedsores or pressure ulcers, urinary tract infections or even death.  When a nursing home chooses increased profits at the expense of the care of our loved ones they should suffer the consequences of their decisions.  If you believe a loved one has been neglected or injured in a nursing home contact us immediately.  We can help your loved ones get the justice they deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors, nurses and hospitals usually do the right thing.  They usually treat our illnesses, injuries or problems and make us feel better.  However, there are also times where medical personnel and medical facilities make mistakes that they should not have made.  Those mistakes can usually have been avoided.  These mistakes, or medical malpractice, can costs great physical and/or mental pain and even lead to death.  When doctors, nurses or medical facilities make unnecessary mistakes and commit medical malpractice they should be held responsible.  To learn more about how you can recover medical costs, pain and suffering and other monetary damages for this mistake of a doctor or hospital contact us today.
