Don’t be afraid to ask us to evaluate your claim. It costs you nothing.
I am surprised at how many people are almost apologetic about calling. Helping injured people is what we do. We would be pleased, in fact proud, to do it for you.
Now, it is true that we do not take every case. There are several reasons for this, including that it might be best if you handled it yourself. We will tell you if we think that is true.
Another reason is the facts do not justify filing a claim. Recently on News 12 LawCall, my partner Reid Sanders explained that a successful case is like a three-legged stool.
- One leg requires there be a defendant who caused the accident. If you do not know who caused your injury, you can’t file a claim.
- One leg requires you to have suffered an injury. If you only suffered a scratch, then you cannot justify filing a claim.
- One leg requires you to have a defendant who can pay for the loss. If the defendant is insolvent, you are wasting your time and money.
Miss any one of those legs then your case is not worth pursuing.
Now, we can’t always tell you in one meeting if you have a potentially successful lawsuit. It often requires investigation on our part to determine the facts. This investigation is at our initial expense. If we don’t pursue the case, you owe us nothing.
One other note. If your case happened in another state, don’t be afraid to speak with a CSRA trial attorney. We may get a lawyer in that state to help, but the fees for both of us will not cost you a penny more. This way, you will have a lawyer here at home that you can trust.
If your family suffers a serious injury or wrongful death, you can talk to the Hawk Law Group for free. 706-444-4444. We want to help. We are working remotely and in-person but are always available.
Also, join us on News 12 LawCall here in Augusta every Sunday night at 11:30, right after the news. We are on tape during the COVID-19 epidemic but plan to be back live soon, taking your questions.
