    Practice Areas


    Auto Accidents

     Drunk and distracted drivers cause tens of thousands of deaths and serious personal injuries every year.    An experienced trial lawyer can fight insurance companies to get you the compensation you deserve.  The difference between a fair settlement and a bad settlement typically comes down to the experience of the  lawyer and ability and willingness to try the case when it is necessary.  Don’t make the mistake of trying to settle your case without the help of an experienced personal injury attorney with trial experience.

    Nursing Home Abuse

    Too often, elderly and disabled patients are abused and neglected at nursing homes.      Typical injuries caused by negligence at nursing homes include falls, bedsores, infections.       When your loved one has suffered unexplained injuries or even death after an admission to a nursing home, you owe it to your loved one to investigate the cause.   An experienced attorney will help you get answers and hold those responsible for causing harm liable to the full extent of the law.

    Medical Malpractice

    Doctors and hospitals are required to meet a minimal standard of care. When they fail to do so, they can be held liable for the harm caused.  Medical malpractice cases are expensive and time consuming cases.  For that reason, only cases involving very serious permanent injuries or death are economically viable. All cases are reviewed by medical experts before filing suit.  Only those cases that are found to be meritorious by a qualified doctor will be filed.       



    Truck Accidents

    Trucking Accidents are often deadly.  Trucks are inherently dangerous because of their size and weight.  Too often, accidents are caused by truck drivers that are too tired to be on the road and by trucks that have not been properly loaded.

    Slip and falls

    Property owners are responsible for maintaining their property in a reasonably safe condition. Injuries caused by falls because of defects or failure to keep an area free of debris can subject the property owner to liability.

    Employment Law

    Both state and federal law protects workers from discrimination based on gender, race, disability, pregnancy and more recently, LGBTQ workers are protected.  Law also protect employees from sexual harassment and retaliation.

    A Vigilant Attorney

    I spoke to several attorneys about my case, and Terry was the one who seemed to really know the law and who was able to convey for me the pros and cons of my situation. He worked very hard on preparing the case and impressed me with his work ethic and compassion for me as a human being.

    A Fast Settlement

    Mr. Heady was amazing! Called me back right away & I couldn't believe how fast he got me a more than fair settlement. I would highly recommend him as I got my settlement in just a couple of months when I knew going in it could take years!
