The History of Graniteville in Aiken County, SC
Graniteville was founded in the 1840s as a company town for local cotton mill workers. The mill’s owner, William Gregg, had the buildings constructed from local blue granite, giving the town its name. The Gregg Highway still bears the name of the town’s founder.
One of the town’s notable landmarks sits at the intersection of Railroad Ave. and Canal St. A train collision in 2005 caused a chlorine gas leak that killed nine and injured over 550. A memorial sits on a small plot of land near the accident scene.

Our Personal Injury Law Firm’s Primary Practice Areas
Our Graniteville personal injury lawyers represent accident victims injured in all types of accidents, including:
Car accidents can happen anywhere, including in small towns like Graniteville. Canal St., Chalk Bed Rd., and US-1/US-78/Augusta Aiken Rd. see heavy traffic throughout the day. This congestion only amplifies the problems created by careless, distracted, and intoxicated drivers.
Hawk Law Group knows Graniteville’s roads and intersections inside and out. We can help you get fair compensation after a collision.
Commercial, residential, and road construction projects like the Byrd Village Townhomes on the north end of town bring jobs and new residents to the area. However, they also bring construction accidents that can injure and even disable Graniteville construction workers.
Hawk Law Group is experienced in helping workers identify all possible sources of compensation after a construction accident injures them.
Graniteville’s weather allows motorcyclists to ride almost year-round. Unfortunately, negligent drivers who fail to spot motorcycles on the road can cause serious injuries. Hawk Law Group fights to hold careless, distracted, or intoxicated drivers liable for the motorcycle accidents they cause.
Slip & Fall
Restaurants, shops, apartment complexes, and other businesses and residences in Graniteville must keep their premises reasonably safe for guests. If you suffered an injury due to their negligence, you might have a legal claim under South Carolina law.
Hawk Law Group helps accident victims recover compensation after getting injured in a slip and fall accident on someone’s property.
Semi-trucks and delivery trucks often travel along US-1/US-78/Augusta Aiken Rd. and other major truck routes through Graniteville. When these trucks hit passenger vehicles, they can cause serious injuries.
Hawk Law Group stands up to trucking companies when they cause truck accidents due to their negligence.
After a fatal accident in Graniteville, the executor of the accident victim’s estate can bring a wrongful death suit. This action gives family members a mechanism to get justice and financial compensation for the death. Hawk Law Group helps you pursue those responsible for the loss of your loved one.
Damages Available in Graniteville Personal Injury Cases

What Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Aiken County?
Most injury lawyers in Aiken County, including those with Hawk Law Group, charge a contingency fee to represent accident victims, which is calculated based on the result of the case.

Statute of Limitations in South Carolina Personal Injury Cases
Every state imposes time limits on filing lawsuits. In South Carolina, you have three years to file a lawsuit for bodily injury or wrongful death, starting from the day the accident happened. If you file after the deadline without meeting a statutory exception, the court must dismiss your case.
Although three years might seem like a long time, you should still consult a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. Hawk Law Group can review the facts of your case to determine your deadline and, if it has already passed, identify a possible exception you can raise to the statute of limitations.
