Will The Hawk Firm
Thoroughly Investigate My Case?
Proving that another person, business, or governmental agency is at fault for your injuries, whether through negligence or through actual malicious intent, can be a complicated process requiring a lot of research.
Evidence must be carefully gathered from photos of the scene to interviews with witnesses. This is a time-consuming and detail-oriented process.
The last thing you need while you are trying to rest and recover from your injuries is the intense work of proving someone is at fault and fighting for the compensation you deserve. This is where Hawk Law Firm comes in.
Some personal injury law firms care more about their bottom line than about offering a professional and compassionate experience. They take on far too many cases and worry about quantity instead of giving you the attention you deserve.
We take a different approach at The Hawk Firm. Our skilled personal injury lawyers thoroughly investigate every case. That means we have an edge before we ever enter negotiations with the insurance companies.
Since each personal injury accident is unique, the types of evidence used and the witnesses involved can make all the difference.
With years of experience and a comprehensive understanding of Georgia’s personal injury law, the Georgia accident attorneys at The Hawk Firm will know exactly how to prove your claim based on the facts of your case.
Client Success Stories
How Much Compensation
Can I Expect After An Injury?
Proving your past and future medical expenses and the costs of non-economic damages such as discomfort and disfigurement are possible.
You will need medical bills and medical reports that detail the severity of your injuries and what it will cost you in the future for therapy and medical care. You can show your lost income with pay stubs.
Determining how much you deserve for your pain and suffering is not as straightforward.
If you ask for too much, you may harm your chances of winning your personal injury case. If you ask for too little, you may be robbing yourself of truly needed and deserved compensation.
The process of calculating the value of economic and non-economic damages involves complicated formulas and, in most cases, the input of expert medical and financial opinions.
Therefore, it is not possible to estimate the potential value of your claim without a proper investigation.
Once we are hired, your Georgia personal injury lawyer from The Hawk Firm will help you understand all the variables that will influence the outcome of your case and the amount of compensation you might be awarded.
How Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer
When I Don’t Have an Income?
A serious injury from an accident will often prevent you from working and earning a paycheck.
Physical disabilities from the accident, the schedule of medical appointments, and the rest you need to recover can make it impossible to work.
Losing your income might make it seem like hiring a personal injury lawyer in Georgia is not possible. Don’t let worries like this get in the way of your recovery and your compensation.
The Hawk Firm understands what you’re going through. We don’t expect someone who is already hurt, both physically and financially, to pay anything upfront. Our compassionate, knowledgeable attorneys work on a contingency basis.
This means our Eastern Georgia personal injury law firm is paid with a small percentage of whatever we’re able to get you rather than getting paid on an hourly basis.
Whether your case ends with a quick settlement or a long trial, we’re by your side every step of the way and only get paid when you do.
This is the most fair and sensible arrangement because you don’t need to worry about how you’ll pay for your needed legal protection, and we have an incentive to make sure we get the best outcome possible.
Our Eastern Georgia law office is located less than 1 mile from Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, 1 mile away from Dyess Park, and about 3 minutes away from SRP Park. Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) is about 7 miles away.

Frequently Asked Questions
- What Are Some Common Types of Personal Injury Cases?
Car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, or defective product accidents are all common types of personal injury cases, but any case in which you are injured at the fault of someone else may be eligible for personal injury compensation.
- What Should I Do if I Am Injured?
First and foremost, get immediate medical attention. If you are not taken to the hospital immediately, get photos of the scene of the accident if you can and take down the names and contact information of possible witnesses.
- How Much Time Do I Have to File My Case?
In most cases, you have two years from the time of the accident to file a personal injury claim. There can be exceptions, however, so call Hawk Law Firm to get specific answers for your case.
- What if an Insurance Adjuster Calls Me?
If the other party’s insurance company calls you, do not speak to them about the accident, but refer them to your attorney. Most likely, they are trying to get you to admit some fault or find something to use against you in court.
- What if I Am Partially at Fault?
There are only four states that deny damages to personal injury victims who share some responsibility for their accidents. Georgia is not one of them. Call Hawk Law Firm today to get legal counsel specific to your case.
- How Do I Make Up for Lost Wages Before I Get a Settlement?
You may have disability insurance through your employer or that you have purchased. In some cases, Social Security disability payments will be available. In car accident cases, you may have Personal Injury Protection as part of your car insurance coverage.
- What if the Accident Happened at Work?
If your accident happened on the job, you may be eligible for Worker’s Compensation. If someone who is not a co-worker or employer caused the accident, you may be able to sue this third party for personal injury damages.
- What if I Don’t Feel Hurt Right Away?
Not every injury will be felt immediately. Sometimes, injuries only show up after the adrenaline of the accident has worn off. Not feeling injured immediately does not mean
that your injuries were not caused by the accident.
