Health Wagon helping Southwest Virginia

Last night I watched a wonderful and heart warming story about healthcare in Southwest Virginia.

60 minutes Health Wagon story– Watch it here.

Doctors and nurse practitioners in our region giving free medical care to those who need it. Often these folks are the working poor, not eligible for Medicaid but unable to afford health insurance.

It is both a wonderful and heart breaking story, but not one that is unique. Health care is expensive. Sometimes we have access to good care, affordable care, and sometimes we don’t. Sometimes an accident or injury occurs and we are faced with thousands of dollars of medical bills.

Sometimes it is necessary to consult with an attorney to determine your legal rights. Occasionally, it is appropriate to file a lawsuit to enforce those rights.

Our office investigates and pursues lawsuits against health care providers when they have committed malpractice and permanently harmed their patients.

We support and honor what the Health Wagon does and would never consider taking action against them. Mostly, we have the same goals. Protecting those who need protection.
