TONIGHT: WHNT News 19 works to help Lawrence County woman who paid $20K to local contractor

A Lawrence County woman is asking for help after a contractor left her home essentially unlivable.

Kimberly Clemons is out about $20,000 so far.  It's been months since she's seen the person she paid to do work on her home.

Lumber is stacked in one room. Wiring hangs out of the walls. The unfinished flooring is also a hazard, especially because Mrs. Clemons is legally blind. She has a very hard time seeing where to walk around. Her kitchen appliances were dumped in the front yard.

"They come in and was doing good but all of a sudden they just stopped," Clemons told us.

Mrs. Clemons waited for workers to return and finish the job, but when they didn't, she called us.

WHNT News 19's Al Whitaker found the contractor responsible for this mess.  He says he'll make it right, but does he?

Watch our Taking Action Investigation as we work to help Mrs. Clemons get her home fixed.
