Land Condemnation

As you are well aware, the North Carolina Department of Transportation has selected your area to build the multi-lane, Monroe Connector bypass. During this time in the process, the State has, or will be, negotiating with many of you a price for land they will seize to develop this road. The State will use their experts and appraisers to determine a value they think is fair for your property.

What you may not realize is that if you’re not satisfied with the value they’re offering for your land, you can do something about it.

Many of your neighbors have not been satisfied with the amount being offered by the State for their land — some of which has been in their family for generations. These neighbors have sought the expertise of our firm, based right here in Union County, to represent their interests and investment against the State.

Although completion of the Monroe Connector is several years away, now is a critical time to ensure you get the absolute best value for your property. You’ll only get one chance to get this right — and perhaps years of regret if you sell short. The State has their team of valuation experts and lawyers, it’s only reasonable that someone should represent your best interest.

We are a local law firm. We’ve been here for 20 years. We know the area. We’re helping your neighbors. If you’re interested in our help, contact our office at 704-296-0055. We can set up a meeting to answer your questions and address your concerns. (There is no fee to meet with us.)

Time is of the essence in these proceedings. Call us today to set up your appointment.

Hip Replacement Cases

WKG Law Hip Replacement Cases

Hip Replacement Cases

Hip replacements are a surgical procedure where the diseased part of the hip is replaced with new artificial parts. This is done to help individuals with mobility, hip function and to relieve pain. Unfortunately, in the last several years, there have been numerous recalls for hip device implants due to faulty devices and/or metal on metal devices. These devices release metal into the body which can damage the bones and tissues surrounding the hip joint. These faulty devices also cause loose implants or loss of mobility, inflammation, infection, and even damage to the heart, kidneys, thyroids, and nervous system. A revision of the hip replacement is required due to metallosis and the damage it has caused.

There are several manufactures that have manufactured metal on metal hip replacements and have sold these replacements to orthopedic doctors in order to be put into their patients. All of these manufacturers who have the metal on metal hips have potential product liability claims arising out of the metal that is released into the blood stream and for other complications surrounding these metal on metal hips.

We handle all types of hip replacement cases including but not limited to: Stryker, Zimmer, Wright Medical Technology, BioMet, Smith & Nephew, and DePuy. These are often times referred to as defective hip implants.

Please contact us if you have a defective hip replacement.

Medical Malpractice

WKG Law Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice results in injury or death from the failure or lack of providing proper professional medical, dental, or other health care services by a health care provider. Bringing a medical malpractice claim in North Carolina is extremely challenging. Selecting a law firm like ours, with a depth of experience in successfully trying medical malpractice cases, is absolutely critical.

Technically speaking, under North Carolina state law, the defendant in a Medical Malpractice case cannot be held liable unless it’s proven that the care the defendant provided was not in accordance with the standards of practice among members of the same health care profession with similar training and experience. The Law Offices of William K. Goldfarb is not afraid to tackle difficult medical malpractice cases, and try them in court. We have a local and national network of expert witnesses who can provide credible and effective testimony on behalf of our clients.

In 2011, the North Carolina Legislature made severe changes to the medical malpractice laws in North Carolina. These changes give doctors and hospitals, and their insurance companies a huge break and significant advantages over injured patients. It’s now more difficult for the injured patient to bring claims, and even more difficult to get compensated for these claims. Unfortunately, the legislature has unfairly determined that an injured patient’s pain and suffering can amount to no more than $500,000.00 when negligently harmed by a medical provider. As a result of these legislative changes, this law firm can only accept medical malpractice cases involving catastrophic injury or death with extreme financial loss to the injured person which exceeds $1,000,000.00. Due to these legislative changes and the extreme cost of bringing a medical negligence case, this law firm can only bring cases where the potential recovery includes the $500,000 for the pain and suffering and an additional $500,000 for past and future medical treatment or loss of income. We would like to attempt to help others who are harmed, as we have in the past, however, these legislative changes have made it practically impossible to do so. Therefore, before calling this law firm about a potential medical malpractice case, please keep the above criteria in mind with regard to whether we would be able to help you or not.  If you do meet this criteria, please contact us today so we can determine if we can help you.

SAMPLE CASE

A Wilkes County resident was undergoing a routine procedure for reoccurring polyps in her bladder after suffering from cancer. During the surgery, a medical provider accidentally flushed her bladder with scolding hot liquid saline, which caused third degree burns inside of her bladder. As a result of the medical provider’s careless act, the woman was forced to endure excruciating pain and additional surgeries to remove her bladder completely, changing her life forever. Sadly, she will have to live with a urostomy bag for the rest of her life.

CASE RESULT

This case was settled prior to filing a lawsuit for a confidential amount.

Product Liability

The Law Offices of William K. Goldfarb defend clients seriously injured by defective products. Every year, thousands of people sustain serious injuries from defective and dangerous products. Sadly, many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure safety. Product Liability cases seek to provide compensation for injuries sustained from the use of defective and dangerous products. Product liability cases can be established if you are able to prove the following:

  • The product was defective
  • The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product
  • The defect caused you damages and/or injuries

Our mission at The Law Offices of William K. Goldfarb in pursuing product liability cases is to obtain just compensation for those injured by the negligent actions of product manufacturers and distributors, thereby creating incentives to produce safer products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives and limbs.

SAMPLE CASE

A Union County resident purchased a weed eater for use at his home from a local home improvement store. He used the product on two separate occasions with no issues. During the third use of the product in question, parts from the rotating spool broke free at a high speed ricocheting off the man’s house striking him in his eye. After having product inspected by an expert engineer, it was found that the parts broke free from the rotating spool because of inferior quality materials used in the manufacturing of the product in question. Sadly, the gentleman who suffered this accident has lost most all the vision in his right eye and is legally blind.

CASE RESULT

A lawsuit was filed but this case was ultimately settled several weeks after the mediation for a confidential amount. The Manufacturer eventually recalled the product in question.
