Outdoor Sports and Adventures
Botetourt County is a popular destination for outdoor sports and adventure. Whether hiking through the rolling hills or on the Appalachian Trail, bicycling on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Paddling the Upper James River Trail, hunting, or fishing in a secluded stream or lake, there are many opportunities for outdoor fun. Unfortunately, some adventures and sports can become dangerous and equipment can fail. If you are injured while enjoying your favorite sports or adventure, call the expert attorneys of Altizer Law, P.C., who are ready to help you evaluate liability for your injury and, if appropriate, to represent you in recovering a just settlement.
As nearby Roanoke has become a major locus for retirement living and health care, Botetourt County has also experienced growth in the number of firms and facilities offering these services. Whether residents at The Glebe or Carrington Place, or you depend upon Carillion Healthcare, Kissito Healthcare or At Home Caregivers, or another organization, you choose nursing home facilities and service providers because you believe you can entrust your wellbeing or the wellbeing of a loved one to them.
Although most facilities and providers are entirely trustworthy and reputable, there are occasions when people believe they or their loved ones are being abused or neglected by the people they trusted.
