Practice Areas

Auto Accidents

Drunk and distracted drivers cause tens of thousands of deaths and serious 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 he lawyer and ability and willingness to try the case when it is necessary.

Nursing homes

Too often, elderly and disabled patients are abused at nursing homes that were entrusted with their care.   Nursing homes can be held liable for falls, bedsores and all manner of injuries and death.  Let an attorney familiar with the law  applicable to Nursing Homes evaluate your loved one’s potential case.     The elderly deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.                                                                                                               

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 harrassment 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!
