Areas of Practice
Sexton and Wykoff PLLC defends the rights of parties seeking compensation related to:
Accidents are part of life, but if you suffer an injury due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for your damages. We fight for your satisfaction and restitution. You don’t need to worry about affording our services, we only get paid if you get paid. No matter what type of personal injury you may have suffered, we can help guide you through this complicated process. From initial meeting, to dealing with the insurance companies, and ensuring a just and fair settlement. These are just a few examples of what we can do for you.
Getting injured on the job can be can be life changing. Obtaining qualified legal advice and assistance is crucial to ensure that you receive the benefits you are entitled to. We know what to do to ensure that you (1) are paid temporary benefits if you are unable to work due to your injury, (2) receive appropriate medical care, and (3) obtain adequate compensation at the conclusion of your case.

At Sexton & Wykoff we know it’s not easy to leave a loved one in the care of another. It’s hard to know if they’re getting the care and attention they need. It’s true that there are many fine facilities in East Tennessee if a family member needs care. But it’s also true that there are some facilities that don’t meet the standards they should. Budget cuts, crowding, poor nursing or other staff, and other issues can lead to these vulnerable people being neglected and abused. If you suspect that your loved one or another resident is being subjected to some form of abuse, the best thing you can do is get help from an attorney. At Sexton & Wykoff we can ensure that the abuse ends and that appropriate compensation is paid.

If you are disabled and unable to work, you may be entitled to receive benefits in the form of SSD or SSI. Social Security benefits likely include a monthly check and MediCare coverage.
