Medical Malpractice

It is heartbreaking when the medical professionals we turn to for healing worsen our condition, at times permanently. At Hewitt & Salvatore, we believe doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other medical staff must be held accountable when, through carelessness, distraction, or failing to follow protocol, they make critical mistakes, putting their patients’ health at risk.

When medical professionals violate the Hippocratic Oath ( “First, do no harm”), our medical malpractice attorneys know precisely how to hold them liable and see to it that you receive appropriate damages.

If you have experienced the misery of having a medical professional cause you harm, worsen your condition, cause unreasonable or unexpected complications, or necessitate further treatment by violating the normal standard of medical care, contact our offices as soon as possible. We are well-prepared to investigate your medical injury and fight for your right to recover damages. Medical malpractice cases may be filed as a result of:

  • Operation on the wrong body part
  • Incorrect dosage of medication
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious condition
  • Incorrect administration of anesthesia
  • Birth injury

Nursing Home
Abuse & Neglect
Learn More About Nursing Home Abuse

When we entrust the care of loved ones to a nursing home, it seems unimaginable that the very people designated to protect them will cause them harm. Nonetheless, nursing home neglect and abuse are not uncommon. If you find that your family member is dehydrated, has a bedsore that remains untended, or is being scolded or physically assaulted, you have every right to demand not only that conditions be rectified immediately, but that you and your family receive restitution. Hewitt & Salvatore will take up your cause with the tenacity it deserves.

Our well-informed attorneys also offer excellent legal representation in other diverse matters that include:

Workplace Injuries

While it is true that an employee can be seriously injured at any workplace, certain places of employment are far more dangerous than others. Employees at construction sites, factories, warehouses, mines, and power plants too often sustain severe, catastrophic, or even fatal injuries. No matter whether you have been hurt by a fall from scaffolding, a defective piece of equipment, or an explosion — contacting one of our offices (in Fayetteville or Beckley) is a good first step toward receiving the compensation you deserve.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

While traffic accidents are sometimes unavoidable, in many cases, someone is at fault. Increasing congestion on our roadways combined with the growing number of distracted, impaired, and reckless drivers make car, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents all too common. If you have been incapacitated by a vehicular accident, don’t wait. Contact Hewitt & Salvatore to get the help and resources you need to help you heal and move forward.

Premises Liability

Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe. Improper maintenance can make any home, store, office, etc. hazardous. If you have fallen and sustained a serious injury due to a slippery floor or broken bannister, or been bitten by an untended dog, you deserve to have your medical expenses and all accident-related costs covered. Our premises liability lawyers will do everything possible to see that they are.

Lemon Law

Years ago, if you bought a car that was a “lemon,” you were just stuck. Now, fortunately, there are lemon laws to protect you. Our lemon law attorneys will fight against the powerful car manufacturers that put profits above fair practices. We will amass evidence that will get you a fair shake through settlement or a court verdict.

Employment Law

Employees are also better protected by state and federal laws in recent years. As an employee, you have legal rights your employer must respect. If you have been harassed, discriminated against, treated unfairly in a wage and hour dispute, or wrongfully terminated, you need the powerful legal protection Hewitt & Salvatore can provide.

Creditor Issues

Owing large sums of money to creditors or considering bankruptcy are far more prevalent than most people think. There is nothing shameful in having financial problems, but it is foolish to try to handle them without legal assistance. Our debt and bankruptcy lawyers are here to help you find your way to a comfortable resolution.
