The Work Comp Department of Bailey & Galyen provides legal services exclusively to injured workers that have a claim under the Division of Worker's Compensation.

In Texas, employers are not required to carry worker's compensation insurance for their employees. For the companies that do provide worker's compensation coverage, we can assist you in your claim. If your company does not carry coverage, or has private coverage, we can definitely refer you to an attorney to better assist you with your claim. Contact us immediately so that we can anonymously investigate whether or not your employer provides coverage.


If you are considering hiring an attorney, please call our office for a free initial evaluation of your claim. Remember, the insurance carrier has attorneys working for them, you may want to consider having your own legal representation to protect your rights.

Blessing
Just like the title Kim has been nothing less than a blessing. She is very professional and kept in touch with me during the whole process. Always simplified and made things easier to understand. She is hands down the best attorney I've ever had. I would highly recommend her to family friends and anyone else that needs an attorney.

Made My Life Matter
When I asked Kim Wyatt if she would help me, she catapulted into action, starting that very day! She literally led me, step-by-step, into Victory! I'm confident my case(s) was challenging beyond my ability to understand all its "ins and outs." Her consistent loyalty to the legal process was unreservedly bold and respectful, as she provided strength and assurance in layman terms for me, of which was profoundly empowering as a her client. As a Special Ed Teacher, I've learned that "Achievement" is never about me as much as it is about my student's "Capabilities" to overcome challenges, regardless of limitations or outer circumstances. This time, I was the one with special needs per say, and Kim kept me focused on the "Goal" in mind, as she continually showed me my options, consequently my Capabilities, despite any limitations or outer circumstances! Regardless of the odds, Kim stayed true to partnership with me in a legal, mental, emotional and physical journey of recovery. Kim possesses a unique combination of heart, formal education and experience that provided me a unique quality of service. I deeply "Thank you" Kim for ALL your dedication behind the scenes! This has been an unforgettable, and thanks to Kim, and an amazing chapter of events, that changed my future seasons for the better. I am humbled and forever grateful for Kim's proficient expertise and immeasurable leadership in my life!

Excellent
My lawyer help me win my case against workers compensation. They did everything in the books to stop and avoid paying for my surgery. The case adjuster for my company prolonged the process and got fake documents to back her up. My lawyer stated ahead of everything and made sure I got my surgery. She also stayed in constant contact with my doctors. To assure proper care and to keep record so they can pay. She is awesome.

Kim Wyatt was the most understanding, Compassionate, and Knowledgeable Attorney I have had the privilege doing business with and having as my attorney. She takes the time to listen to you and has an uncanny understanding of how a person feels going through a trying time as I did dealing with impersonal Insurance Companies and an organization who goes by the letter of the law. I would and do highly recommend Ms Wyatt

Kim Wyatt is AWESOME !!
Kim Wyatt was not the first attorney on my case. I was referred to Bailey and Galyen after numerous issues with the original law firm I had hired. Kim willingly took my case and proceeded to clean house !! She handled issue after issue and got me everything I needed. Kim told me the best way to contact her is by e-mail and she was true to her word. Consistantly responded within the hour of any contact from me. If I needed to speak to her she would return phone calls promptly, usually emailing to let me know when to expect her call. When it came to handling hearings she was AWESOME !! Explaining each step of the process, making sure I knew what to expect. In the courtroom, Kim Wyatt is a powerhouse !! She shut down the opposing council numerous times with the tricks they tried to play. Kim had legal statutes and quick knowledge to fight for my rights at the ready. Kim Wyatt is obviously not just any attorney. She truly cares for her clients. She makes sure to be well versed in the issues with your case and is 100% fighting for you and your family. I have and will continue to refer anyone I come to know to hire Kim Wyatt for their workers comp needs. Best wishes and many thanks to to Kim Wyatt and her team at Bailey and Galyen !!

Review for Attorney Kim Wyatt
Atty Wyatt was very easy to talk with and explain the process concerning my case from the initial consultation until present. She answers all questions and concerns and If you don't understand certain terms she explains what they mean in layman terms. She genuinely cares about her clients and I'm grateful to have her as my Counsel. Several times I've asked her a question and she yet answers with patience and consideration that my injury left me a horrible place physically and emotionally! Again, you can always feel her concern no matter what time or day it is.

Hello! I went and Seen Dr, Rory Allen at Blue Star Rehabilitation. He recommend Kim Wyatt as my lawyer. I was some what worried when I didn't get her. They told me she always wins. I did get a very good Lawyer by the name of Mildred Ashley. Since I really didn't understand a lot, I left it in her hands. And if I had questions all I had to do was email and she would answer me later that evening. All I can say is she very nice and Great. And yes we won. Thank You Mildred Ashley for taking care of me.

Client
I would highly recommend Mrs. Wyatt to anyone that's having problems with the workers comp insurance. She is very detailed oriented and she is amazing in the court room. At first it's a slow process and you have to give her time to get the ball rolling with the state, the state anything but fast. So be patient and don't be rude, Mrs. Wyatt and her team are working hard for you. Learn from my mistake.. unfortunately the system is really broken and it may seem like one cares, but doubt Mrs. Wyatt. She does care and she will fight for you if you're truly hurt. Please understand all workers comp lawyer have their plates full, so if you don't get a phone call or an email back give her time a she will respond. If you hire Mrs. Wyatt and her team you will not regret it and you will know you have the best lawyer on your side.

Lawyer you don't need to dig deep to dig: fair and very competent.
I was in situation many regulars gave up and ran. Without exaggerating chances success, she took the dread out of the justice system. She's firm and honest - there's no better feeling than knowing you can count on the person defending you being diligent, rational and professional. That's how I felt.

Always stay in the fight
I had a worker injury that required surgery to stabilize my ankle. After the initial repair and therapy was completed the repair failed not even two months later after returning to work. 6 doctors agreed that the repair failed and needed to be corrected with a second surgery but the hassle with workers comp was drug out for months until I reached out to Kim Wyatt. I was then able to get all the documentation presented and get the second surgery approved within a month. As an injured person waiting is the hardest thing to do when no treatment is provided and the doctors are left on the sideline over a legal mess. Get the best and get back work with a new outlook! Thank you Kim Wyatt!!!!

Kim Wyatt Review
My husband called several lawyers in the area about his Workers Comp case and Ms. Wyatt was the only one willing to talk to him about it. Once she listened to everything he told her she gladly took his case. She was diligent in getting the job done and won his case. She went above and beyond to accomplish this. My husband is a truck driver and is over the road so she was able to get him to call in for meetings and court dates. Ms. Wyatt followed up with him and got the job done. If we ever need an attorney in the future we will reach out to Ms. Wyatt again.

Kim Wyatt
I have been dealing with Work Comp since my original injury - 11/04/14. Out of desperation I obtained services from the Casaubon firm in 10/15. Between then and when my case was assigned to Kim Wyatt a few months ago I saw very little progress on my case. In fact, I felt like I still had nobody in my corner. Kim stepped in and from that point on things started moving. Within this short time frame she was able to get my case settled. I am extremely happy with Kim's assistance. She was pro-active, professional, courteous and most of all supportive.

Great results from Kim Wyatt
My attorney walked me through the process of workers compensation procedures, Kim Wyatt will respond to your questions in a prompt matter and explain what I going on, it was a long process to win my case but it was all explained from day one how the process works, all employees are respectful and informative if they don't have an answer they have the attorney get back to you, in all a good process if you have to go through the workers compensation trials and making sure they pay you what you are awarded.

Exceptional attorney
My case was recommended over to Kim Wyatt after my first attorney's lawfirm stopped doing workers comp cases. Since being on my case she has done everything she can to help me move forward with getting surgery and also to recieve temporary benefits. Kim wyatt always responds to email's in a timely manner usually the same day. She definitely has a strong background in workers comp cases and I strongly recommend her to anyone needing help with the workers comp process!
