I called Matt after several people recommended him. He was very kind and did a very good job on my son’s case. We are very thankful for the work he did. Most importantly, he was never hard to reach and answered every question we had while going through the process. Matt is the only attorney I will ever call in the future.
My husband is a cyclist that did not fair well against an SUV recently. Matt and his team took phenomenal care of us, allowing us not to stress out (too much) about the little things. Matt and his team handled everything with professionalism. We know we made the right call.
So glad I hired this firm after my rearend car accident. Matt embodies the skill set and values I was looking for. He treats every case like a mini war, and was a zealous advocate on my behalf. And he did so in the most competent and skillful manner. He listened, was empathetic and understood my legal and nonlegal problems.
My 85-year old mom was in a motor vehicle accident with an uninsured motorist. His love, thoroughness and commitment to her case helped us through this accident and her cancer treatment. She underwent successful lobectomy and chemotherapy and is doing exceptionally well. We are immensely grateful.
It was important to me to get the maximum money I could for my broken neck and arm. After getting jerked around for months by State Farm, I interviewed several firms and chose Mr. Wetherington. I’m glad I did. He forced the insurance company to pay twenty times their last offer to me.
It is an honor to share my experience with Mr. Wetherington. He was able to get answers about what happened in my son’s wreck that other attorney’s were not able to do. I am so thankful for the work that he did and he was very thorough in his explanation of why the vehicle had a “defect.”
My case did not settle. The person that hit me only had minimal policy limits. Fortunately, I had my own insurance, which should have provided more money. My insurance company, Allstate, treated me like garbage. We had to sue them and go all the way to trial, which we won.

The best! Great people and always friendly.
Georgia Fractures & Broken Bones Injury Lawyers
Bone fractures often result from personal injury accidents. Most fractures and broken bones heal in a reasonable amount of time. Some fractures are more serious, especially when multiple bones are involved. If you were involved in a personal injury accident, contact the broken bones and fractures injury lawyers at the Wetherington Law Firm.
Causes of Fractures and Broken Bone Complications
Millions of people fracture their bones every year. Fractures happen when the force exerted against the bone is stronger than the bone itself. The most common causes of fractures include falls and car accidents. Until you have experienced a broken rib or ankle, it can be difficult to understand how painful and disabling a broken bone can be. We understand.
Simple fractures are commonplace and heal quickly. However, some broken bones health very slowly, or not at all. A “nonunion” occurs when a broken bone does not heal. Some bones are well known for failing to heal. This is because blood flow to these bones is poor even in normal daily life, and therefore, even a slight complication can cause a nonunion. Nonunion is most common in the following injuries:
- Tibia fractures;
- Fibula fractures;
- Scaphoid fractures;
- Talus fractures;
- Femoral neck fractures; and
- Fifth metatarsal (“Jones”) fractures.
When a pedestrian is hit by a car, it often results in serious compound fractures. Car accidents also cause compound fractures and broken bones. Knee injuries, spinal injuries, and broken ribs are common in car accidents. Accidents where motorcyclists are sideswiped by a car often result in a crushing injury to the leg and ankle. When a senior citizen falls in a nursing home due to negligence or abuse, a broken arm, finger, wrist or hip is much more serious. Recovery is also more complicated than for the same injury in a younger person. These types of injuries are much more painful and can result in permanent disability. An experienced fracture and broken bones lawyer will help get compensation for your medical expenses and relentlessly pursue justice for you.
