  • James

  • Gwen

  • Robert

    I want to say you all did every thing just right. I could not ask for nothing to be done any better then you all did. 

  • Annie

    Wallace & Graham is an excellent and very professional law firm. The attorneys did an outstanding job of negotiating my case with other insurance companies and keeping me informed of the progress.The paralegals were friendly and very eager to assist me.

    I will definitely recommend, without reservation, Wallace & Graham law firm to all my friends and family members.

    It is my belief the Wallace & Graham is a good choice for legal counsel. I have been lucky to have found a legal team that is solid in there foundation.

    My family had the unfortunate cause of having to find legal counsel for a fatal crash involving my father back in March 2013. He was killed by another driver while riding his motorcycle. The crash was not his fault. When my family and I first approached the Wallace & Graham team they were upfront and forth wright about the reality's we would be facing in the case. To this day they have not been found to have steered us in the wrong direction or have spoken falsities. We are treated as we are family. They were diligent and kept us informed regularly as things had changed or not. If there was something that was not a good decision to be made. We were told about it out front whether we liked it or not. This is a rare reality in this world now. If it were not for being blessed to have found or being referred to Wallace & Graham as legal counsel, I am sure that I would have lost my mind months ago with the train wreck that is my Father's crash. The legal counsel that is the state is not as efficient, caring, fourth wright or honoring toward the victim's family as true professionals should be. As the Wallace & Graham Team is. I will be following up with them on other matters in the near future.

    In closing. It is my opinion and belief that it would be a smart decision for anyone to make, as to seek and acquire the team of Wallace & Graham as their legal counsel. In my first experience with them, you will not regret it.

    Donnie and I feel fortunate to work with the law firm of Wallace & Graham. This is a team second to none which is professional in approach, courteous in demeanor and always displays sensitivity for their client’s needs.

    The amount of time and effort solely devoted to our claim making sure we were rightfully compensated for exceeded our expectations. We will recommend the law firm of Wallace & Graham above any other law firm. 

  • Mark

    In May 2013, my wife was involved in a horrific car accident with another driver who had run a red light. Her injuries were severe and life altering. Even with health insurance, her loss of income and medical expenses were starting to become a financial hardship and affecting the way of life we once enjoyed. A close friend had suggested I contact the law firm of Wallace & Graham to see if they may be able to help. He had used them in the past and was very satisfied with their service.  In the initial consultation, my wife and I met with Terry Taylor who explained to us our situation, how insurance works in the "real world" and the options that were available to us.  Some things she told us were depressing but, I appreciated her honesty and candor on our options and what they could do to help. After a brief discussion with my wife, we hired Wallace & Graham to represent our family with the insurance companies and all legal matters concerning this accident. Throughout the progression and settling of our case, I was very pleased with the communication process and felt like our inputs were wanted and valued. We were part of the team, not just passive spectators. Mona and Terry worked very hard for us and the results were beyond our expectations.

  • Martin

    I wish to tell each of you that you will always be on my mind as to what you have done for me. I will never forget you and welcome any email or anything that I can receive from you. You people are just one wonderful group. God Bless each of you and your families.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

Generally, in order to be entitled to a recovery against another, you must have 1) suffered an injury to your person or property, and 2) your injury must have resulted from someone else's negligence or an intentional act.  

An insurance adjuster has offered me a settlement. How do I know if it’s fair?

This answer depends heavily on the specific facts of your case.  You may be entitled to recover all or some of the following:

  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses (past & future)
  • Lost wages (past & future)
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Scarring / Permanent injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

If death, recovery can include expenses for care, treatment and hospitalization; compensation for pain and suffering of the decedent; reasonable funeral expenses; compensation to the others based on net income of decedent; services, protection, care and assistance of the decedent; loss of society, companionship, comfort, guidance, and advice; and/or punitive or nominal damages.

An attorney cannot advise on the damages you are entitled to without knowing the facts of your claim.  

Why would I need a lawyer to represent me?

A lawyer will investigate all sources of insurance coverage and all avenues of recovery.  You may need to make a claim with your own insurance carrier for Med Pay coverage, or uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.  It is your lawyer’s job to look out for you and your family’s best interests, and to make sure you are treated fairly during this stressful process.

How long will it take to settle my claim?

Each personal injury case is unique, so the length of time to settle will vary depending on the circumstances surrounding your case. Typically, the more complex the case and injury, the longer it will take to settle.  If you hire an attorney, it is his/her obligation to keep you informed about the status of your case every step of the way.

How much will you charge to represent me?

Wallace & Graham, PA works on a “contingency-fee” basis, meaning our firm gets paid a percentage of the total settlement of your case.

How long do I have to file a claim?

Each State has “statute of limitation” laws which place limits on how long one can wait to file a personal injury lawsuit.  Each type of lawsuit (wrongful death, personal injury, medical malpractice, product liability, etc.) has different statute of limitations that applies.  These SOLs can range from 2 years to 10 years!  Generally, personal injury actions must be brought within three (3) years of the date when the bodily harm was or should have been apparent.  A wrongful death action must be brought within two years of the date of death.  You should contact an attorney as soon as possible to learn how long you have to file your claim.

I was in a car accident. What should I do?

The facts of each case are different; however, you should: 

  1. Report the accident to the highway patrol or local police.
  2. As soon as possible, write down your recollection of what happened.   
  3. Do your own investigation!  Take photographs of the accident site, talk to any witness, writing down their names and statements; collect and preserve evidence.
  4. If you were injured, seek medical attention.
  5. Ask for the police report for your accident.
