  • "My wife and I will always be grateful for what Corey did in helping me with my work injury." -Ken of Huxley, Iowa

    When I fell at work and sustained a concussion my world was turned upside down.  I had been driving a tractor trailer for a living and the doctors told me I could not drive truck anymore.  The doctor had given me a 20% impairment rating and the insurance company changed my benefits from temporary to permanent and said they would pay me 100 weeks and then stop.  I was concerned about this and upon a referral from a friend my wife and I called and got a copy of Corey's book.  We were impressed that he would offer so much information at no cost.  We decided to meet with Corey to discuss our options and after he explained how the system worked and answered all of our questions we hired him.  He worked very hard on the case, always called us back and took time to explain the process.  My wife and I will always be grateful for what Corey did in helping me with my work injury.  If I had not hired Corey, I would have only received 100 weeks of benefits instead of the substantial sum he was able to get for me.

  • "I’m glad I hired Erik to help me; he answered my questions and kept me up to date on what was happening with my case." -Mike of Bondurant, Iowa

    I was stopped in my truck at a stop light when I was crashed into from behind by another vehicle.  My neck and back were hurt and I went to the hospital for my injuries.  The insurance company for the other driver offered me some money up front to settle my case right away.  I met with Erik Bair and he took on my case and he forced the insurance company to pay me what my case was really worth.  I’m glad I hired Erik to help me; he answered my questions and kept me up to date on what was happening with my case.  I’m happy with the results he got for me.

  • "With the opinion of that doctor we were able to settle my case and I am sure glad that I called Corey." -Jim of Grinnell, Iowa

    I worked as a truck driver and was in an accident that was not my fault.  I was thrown in the cab hurting my shoulder and arm.  I had to have surgery on my arm, but there was nothing they could do to fix my shoulder.  While I was healing after surgery my employer fired me so I called Corey for help with my workers' compensation case.  I went to see Corey in Newton and he met with my wife and me and answered all of our questions.  He had me see one of the doctors he uses in Iowa City for a second opinion.  With the opinion of that doctor we were able to settle my case and I am sure glad that I called Corey.

  • "If the insurance company pays your impairment rating, then you should talk to Corey to find out if he can help you to." - Scott of Newton, Iowa

    I injured my back while working in Des Moines, Iowa for a trucking firm.  I went through treatment for my back and eventually was assigned a 5% impairment rating for my permanent disability.  The insurance company sent me a check for the 5% (25 weeks) and then said they were closing my file.  My mother told me I should go see an attorney to find-out my rights.  I went to see Corey and he was able to get me another $20,000 within a few months.  This is money that I had no idea that I should receive.  If the insurance company pays your impairment rating, then you should talk to Corey to find out if he can help you to.

  • Attorney Erik Bair took the time to thoroughly prepare the case for trial and obtain the medical opinions we needed to succeed in our case. 

    My daughter sustained serious injury when she was left unsupervised in a classroom swing by a member of the school staff who was not paying attention.   We trusted attorney Erik Bair to handle our case against the school district.  Attorney Erik Bair took the time to thoroughly prepare the case for trial and obtain the medical opinions we needed to succeed in our case.  As a result of his professionalism and preparation we were able to obtain a settlement of $50,000.  I would recommend that others use his services as well.

  • "He has been very helpful and was good at telling me step by step what would happen next. He was able to get a good settlement that I would not have gotten without him." -Norman of Marshalltown

    I want to thank you for taking my case.  I first saw your ad in the newspaper and my wife said maybe you should talk to someone to see if there is any kind of settlement for my back injury.  Being in the blue collar field all my life I didn’t know what my rights were.  Your law firm is close to Marshalltown, so I asked for your book and after reading it I was sure I needed to talk to Corey.  He has been very helpful and was good at telling me step by step what would happen next.  He was able to get a good settlement that I would not have gotten without him.  Thank you.

  • "Erik was very helpful and was able to obtain the most money possible from all of the insurance policies involved." -Jenny of Des Moines, Iowa

    I was riding in a friend’s car when we were hit by a driver who ran a red light.  I was wearing my seat belt, but still suffered injuries to my neck, back and arm.  I had to go to physical therapy and about a month after the accident discovered I also had a serious injury to my leg. I was hospitalized and missed over one month of work.  Erik met with my doctors and convinced the insurance companies that my leg injury was caused by the car accident.  Unfortunately, the driver who ran the red light did not have enough so Erik went after my underinsured motorist coverage through my own insurance company.  They did not want to pay so we took them to court and eventually they settled for my policy limits.  Erik was very helpful and was able to obtain the most money possible from all the insurance policies involved.

  • "Without Corey's help I would have not only received no money, but would have had to use my health insurance to pay for the surgery."

    While I was working in Grinnell, I hurt my shoulder lifting at work and had to have shoulder surgery.  The workers comp. insurance company did not want to pay for the surgery so Corey filed a petition for alternative medical care which we won.  They had to pay for my surgery and my time off work while I recovered.  While I was able to go back to the same job I had before being hurt, Corey was able to get me more than $30,000 for my work injury.  Without Corey's help I would have not only received no money, but would have had to use my health insurance to pay for the surgery.

  • "Erik kept us informed with everything that was going on with the case and quickly returned our phone calls. We are pleased with Erik’s services and would recommend Erik to anyone." -Jessica of Jefferson, Iowa

    Attorney Erik Bair handled my son’s case when he was injured at school while students were allowed to work in the auto shop over the lunch hour without any supervision.  My son was injured when he was picked up and thrown to the ground by an older student.  We obtained a good settlement with the school district because of Erik’s hard work and dedication.  Erik kept us informed with everything that was going on with the case and quickly returned our phone calls.  We are pleased with Erik’s services and would recommend Erik to anyone.

  • "I would highly recommend Corey Walker and/or his office to anyone. They did a great job!! I greatly appreciate what you have done for me Corey, I can’t thank you enough." -Pamela of Epworth, Iowa

    First of all, I had a couple work comp issues and wanted to know what my rights were.  So I did some research online on work comp lawyers.  I came across Walker, Billingsley & Bair.  So I decided to read up on other clients’ experiences with this company.  What I found was every client had nothing but very positive things to say.  And each client’s case was successful.  So I decided to email Walker, Billingsley & Bair about my situation and what could be done.  I emailed them on a Friday and on that Saturday Corey Walker called me.  That definitely surprised me, because I had never had a lawyer contact me on a weekend.  So I called Corey on Monday to discuss my issue.  He explained everything to me and answered all my questions.  He explained his fees right up front so there were no surprises.  He took my case and kept me updated on everything plus gave me copies of all the paperwork.  Corey always called me personally to give me updates or keep me clued in to what was going on.  I have never known any lawyer who returns their client’s calls personally.  I really was impressed with that due to the fact that if I had any questions or concerns I was talking directly to Corey himself.   I was very impressed with Corey’s work and how well of a job he did for me.  After all if it wasn’t for Corey I wouldn’t have received any settlement.  Corey is very good at his job and definitely knows it well.  I would highly recommend Corey Walker and/or his office to anyone.  They did a great job!!  I greatly appreciate what you have done for me Corey, I can’t thank you enough.
