It is true in life that “accidents happen.” If they occur as a result of someone else’s action or inaction, you may be entitled to compensation for medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, continued care, and other expenses required to get your life back on track.
Nursing Home Abuse
Placing one of our beloved elder family members in a nursing home or other long-term care facility is one of the most difficult decisions any of us will ever have to make. We are all familiar with anecdotes of senior citizens living in nursing homes who are neglected or abused by their so-called caregivers, but statistics tell us that this kind of abuse or neglect is hardly rare.
If you have been recently injured at work, you are probably concerned about rising medical bills as well as covering wages lost due to your injury. Your employer is legally required to have workers’ compensation insurance in order to deal with precisely this kind of contingency. I can help ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled under state law.
Divorce & Family Law
Family law matters such as divorce and child custody are extremely sensitive. When emotions get out of hand, disagreements can leave scars for years to come. As a dedicated Alabama family law attorney, I can help you settle disagreements quickly and affordably while considering the best interests of children and other loved ones affected by family law issues.
Our practice areas require both a comprehensive knowledge of Alabama and federal law and a deep commitment to individual service to ensure that our clients not only reach a successful conclusion to their case, but also have the understanding of their options and the civil process necessary to alleviate the stress involved in navigating the legal system. Any personal injury claims and workers’ compensation matters are handled on a contingency basis, which means that you pay nothing unless we are successful in getting you the compensation you deserve.
