|Accidents & Injuries|
In our country, there are many rules and laws in place to provide protection
against injuries suffered due to someone else's negligence.
However, there are many nuances to these rules and laws as well as time
limits and other restrictions on actions that could result in an individual
mistakenly and unknowingly waiving their claims and rights.
The following sections provide helpful answers to questions people have
after being injured in an accident.
What to Do If You've Been Injured
If you've been injured, it is critical to have an attorney who can help
you pursue your claim while you are trying to regain your health. The
experienced attorneys at WylieLaw will help you protect your legal rights
so you can stop worrying about your claim and concentrate on getting healthy.

- When a WylieLaw client without health insurance was hospitalized
after a motorcycle accident, a WylieLaw attorney went to the hospital
with a power of attorney form which allowed WylieLaw to act on the client's
behalf. With power of attorney, WylieLaw was able to ensure that all
medical treatment would continue and that the medical bills would be
held without pay until after the entire case settled. The individual
was able to concentrate on recovery rather than worrying about medical
bills. When the case was settled, WylieLaw was able to negotiate with
the medical providers to accept 50% of the total amount of each bill
as full payment, saving our client thousands of dollars.
- A pedestrian needed two surgeries on his back after being struck
by a truck. WylieLaw was able to convince the insurance carrier to pay
the full policy and to allow the client to continue medical treatment
without requiring his attendance at an independent medical examination.
With the help of WylieLaw, our client was able to continue his medical
treatment and received payment for his damages.
- An individual slipped on ice while attending a funeral and
shattered his knee (which had been surgically replaced a few years earlier).
WylieLaw filed a claim with the cemetery and obtained weather reports
and medical records. Our client was able to rehabilitate his knee instead
of being concerned about his claim. WylieLaw participated in mediation
with the insurance company and resolved the claim for a much larger
settlement than the company initially offered.
