Dennis L. - On
The Job Injury
my husband suffered a fractured skull and traumatic brain
injury when a steel beam struck him in the head while on the
job site at which he was superintendent. He was rushed
from the job site in Cullman County to a hospital in Birmingham,
Alabama where he was stabilized. Initially, the workers
compensation insurance company paid all medical bills which
they are required to do by the laws of the State of Alabama.
However, over the next several months I began to realize that
the insurance company was not working in behalf of my husband
but against him.
From the date of the injury, the insurance
company paid him workers compensation benefits for approximately
ten (10) years in a begrudging manner. Checks began to arrive
late; the insurance company kept us under constant surveillance;
and every year they would ask us to settle his claim for less
than what he was entitled in the future.
In 2005, the workers compensation
insurance company retained its own doctor to see my husband.
My husband had not improved since he left the hospital in
1989 and he continued to suffer from loss of memory, poor
judgment, poor motor skills and worsening eyesight. The insurance
company sent my husband to their own doctor who saw him for
approximately fifteen (15) minutes and indicated that he was
well enough to go back to work. The next week, the insurance
company stopped my husbands check.
We found Wayne Wolfe on the internet after
having viewed his web page. I e-mailed Mr. Wolfe and he promptly
responded. I explained to him what had occurred and he seemed
extremely knowledgeable of the workers compensation
laws for the State of Alabama. Mr. Wolfe was kind enough to
come to our home as my husband had difficulty in traveling.
When we met Mr. Wolfe, we knew that he was the attorney for
us and righting this wrong.
Mr. Wolfe filed suit against the workers
compensation insurance company for both workers compensation
benefits and damages my husband suffered because of the outrageous
conduct and bad faith of the insurance company. Mr. Wolfe
was aggressive and constantly pressured the insurance company
to provide information, including its internal files which
shockingly revealed that they had been attempting to find
a reason to stop my husbands workers compensation
benefits for years. Mr. Wolfe settled my husbands workers
compensation claim in an amount that far exceeded the amounts
offered by the insurance company in previous years. In addition,
he recovered money from the insurance company for their intentional
and outrageous conduct which caused further harm and injury
to my husband. He also made sure that the Social Security
benefits my husband was receiving were not cut or affected
by the money he got for us from the insurance company.
I would highly recommend Wayne Wolfe
to anyone who is involved in an on the job injury or has a
workers compensation claim. My only regret is that I
did not find him sooner although he has made our lives much
more secure. Call Wayne Wolfe if you have trouble with insurance
companies or any personal injury claim. He is a compassionate
and caring person and will get you results.

Mr. Calvin F. - A Case Of Wrongful Death
20, 2006, I received a call that no parent wants to receive.
I was told my daughter had been killed, along with three (3)
other children, while riding a school bus in Huntsville, Alabama.
The school bus driver ran into and over a barrier wall crashing
the bus some thirty-five (35) feet below causing the death
of my daughter and three (3) others, in addition to injuring
thirty (30) other children. Following the accident, I could
not get any answers from the Police Department, school officials
or the company who ran the buses, Laidlaw. A friend of the
family highly recommended that we see Wayne Wolfe and we were
able to meet with him the day after the accident. At this
meeting with Mr. Wolfe, we immediately knew that he would
answer the question, Why did this have to happen?
Wayne thoroughly investigated the accident
and immediately brought suit against the company operating
the buses for school children in Huntsville City Schools.
Through his aggressive efforts, we learned that the bus driver
was not properly trained or certified by the State of Alabama
as a bus driver. We also learned that he failed to wear his
seat belt in violation of State law which caused or contributed
to his losing control of the vehicle and crashing over the
Wayne never gave up in his fight and, after
two (2) long years of fighting with the bus company and its
insurance lawyers, Wayne successfully settled the claim in
behalf of my daughters estate. It brought closure. Wayne
also made sure that my grandson will have a college education
and money to start his life after his education.
We visit Wayne and his staff on occasions
and feel that they are like family. We always know that we
can depend on Wayne and his excellent staff of assistants
and lawyers to guide us should any issues arise.
Thank you Wayne for everything you have
done for me and my family."

Ms. Rachel Batrum - A Case
Of Personal Injury
one ever expects to be involved in a horrendous automobile
accident much less and 18 wheeler running over you and driving
you off the road. On March 9, 2004, while returning from
my job in southern Tennessee to Elkmont, Alabama on Interstate
I65, an eighteen wheeler traveling in the same direction suddenly
changed lanes striking my vehicle and causing me to flip over
many times and landing in the median. I was knocked unconscious
and taken to a local hospital. My initial injuries did not
seem quite as bad as I would have expected, however, as time
passed by I experienced increasing pain and a burning sensation
in my lower extremities. Because of these injuries, I was
unable to return to my former employment. The insurance company
for the 18 wheeler had been calling me since I left the hospital
pressuring me to settle my case. I met with a lawyer in Athens,
Alabama who told me that the best lawyer involving accidents
between cars and 18 wheelers was Wayne Wolfe from Huntsville,
Alabama. I met with Mr. Wolfe and his staff and they agreed
to take my case.
The insurance company for the driver of
the 18 wheeler made an offer that would hardly pay my medical
bills. After Mr. Wolfe took the case, he aggressively pursued
information about the truck driver and his driving habits.
Mr. Wolfe discovered that the driver of the 18 wheeler exceeded
his driving time or what is known as hours of service
under the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor
Carriers Safety Regulations (FMCSR). He also discovered that
the driver had not been properly trained.
Through Mr. Wolfes efforts, I went
from having an offer to pay my medical bills to receiving
a settlement that will pay me benefits for my lifetime. My
family and I believe in Wayne Wolfe and his law firm and would
not hesitate to recommend him to anyone involved in a collision
between an automobile and a tractor trailer truck or 18 wheeler.
He is simply the best!
