Unfortunately, she subsequently felt a new mass in the same location on the same breast. After consulting with her physician, she had a biopsy performed on the mass.

Our client was a resident of a seniors' tower in metro Atlanta.

Our client, who was elderly and suffered from diabetic neuropathy in her legs, was burned over 20% of her body when she sat down in a tub of scalding water. Through discovery, we were able to show that although the owners were aware that there was a high risk of scalding, they chose not to modernize the hot water system and make it safe for residents.

At the time, his vehicle was disabled and had been pulled into the emergency lane of the highway.

"When my mentally impaired brother was burned to death in a personal care home where he was supposed to be taken care of, Attorney Seay was there to provide not only strong and effective legal representation, but also guidance to me and my brother and sister. We greatly appreciated how Mr. Seay quickly filed a lawsuit on our behalf when the personal care home and its insurance companies failed to take responsibility for the negligence which led to the death of our brother. Because Mr. Seay was aggressive in pursuing discovery against the personal care home and its employees, the insurance companies reconsidered and settled the case. Throughout the time that he was working on our lawsuit, Mr. Seay and his staff always had time to answer any questions and assist us with any other needs we had. Mr. Seay obviously cared about getting the best outcome possible for my family. We will always miss our brother, but with the assistance of Mr. Seay we now feel that we were able to obtain justice for him."
"I think that Mr. Felton did a great job on my case. I would like to thank him and his team for looking out for me and my family. Thank you, thank you."
