“They really cared about me and my wife. They made us feel like family.”

I worked for the railroad for 27 years and I gave them my life. Then I was in a major accident and the railroad basically disowned me and didn’t care about me anymore. I knew I needed some help. I talked with Wettermark Keith and I knew they were the attorneys I needed. They really cared about me and my wife. They made us feel like family. It couldn’t have been any better. The money I received for my injuries will take care of my family for the rest of our life.

WETTERMARK Keith CLIENT V. CORPORATION

“I don’t believe any other law firm could have got us the settlement we received.”

We are from Louisville, KY and even though Wettermark Keith is from Birmingham, AL there was no doubt that we needed to hire them to represent us. As a representative of my Union, I witnessed the large settlements James Wettermark obtained for workers. They fought very hard for us. I don’t believe that any other law firm could have got us the settlement we received. We are very pleased about the settlement Wettermark Keith obtained for us.

HUTCHENS V. CSX TRANSPORTATION, INC.
A 55-year-old signal man fell 20 ft from a bridge while carrying a dwarf signal. He fractured his elbow, both wrists, and his foot. His injuries prevented him from returning to his job with the Railroad. The Railroad paid for Mr. Hutchens’ retraining in computer sciences and offered to settle for $400,000. The verdict came after a four-day trial.

 

 

HENDERSON V. FAIRVIEW NURSING HOME

WETTERMARK KEITH CLIENT V. ANONYMOUS DRIVER
A 44-year-old Wettermark Keith client sustained severe fractures of his hip requiring surgery following an automobile accident.

 

“They worked hard for me. I can’t praise or thank them enough for what they did.”

A prescription drug caused me to develop Rhabdomyolysis and kidney failure. I was hospitalized for 30 days and realized that I needed an attorney to represent me. That’s when I called Wettermark Keith. They worked hard for me and I can’t praise or thank them enough for what they did. I tell all my friends, if they’re ever injured to call James Wettermark.
