Testimonials

“You helped me restore my faith in so much that looked bleak and decrepit. Along this bumpy road, my lovely daughter is safe, and home, and starting to find peace again…Thank you. All the pieces unfolded and fell into place through a progression only the Lord could have planned. But the people who fulfilled his plan did it through greatness and kindness and strength. In my opinion you and Martha have done Gods work and the Judge came through! I am indebted to you both. Please understand, I can be a force and support as well. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”. I still have a long way to go…so I hope that statement is true. My commitment to be there for you is equally strong. It will be a tough journey. I Pray. You guys are amazing. Thank you for everything.”

BONNIE GRINGER

“We were referred to Mike Hall by a friend who told us that if they had used him in the beginning, they would have had a lot better result. Using Mike ourselves, we have had the same experience. Mike is very personable and gave us some very wise council. We could tell he was trying to help us. We have used him for several issues that have come up, and he has always handled them in a professional and timely manner. He is quick to answer emails or phone calls, and takes his time answering all of your questions. We are very pleased with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone who has a legal problem.”

LYNN & PAM KELLEY

“After a two and a half year battle, my son and I got the justice we longed for. The only quality that I didn’t like about Paige was that she was patient. Which, is a very good quality to have. However, hindsight being 20/20, I’m glad she was so patient. Paige and Ashley (her paralegal) were always in communication with me, and responded in a timely and appropriate manner. When opposing counsel started her antics and attempted to berate and take Paige’s eye off the prize, she didn’t allow it. I sincerely appreciate all they did for me and my son. I know my circumstances were extreme, but Paige looked out for the two of us. I highly recommend the law group, and will always be indebted to them.”

DUSTIN SHAW

“This review is in regards to how attorney Martha Hall handled my cases. Before Martha Hall, I was taken advantage of in family court in Jefferson County and Effingham County with sub par attorneys that resulted in rulings that were unfair to me and created headaches and financial difficulties. I experienced three attorneys before Martha Hall. I never felt that I had equal representation in the courthouse, until I discovered Martha Hall. Since I have hired Martha Hall, I have had equal or better representation and my cases have closed with fair rulings. This is solely a result of having Martha Hall as my attorney. I will not change thus moving forward if I need any legal services. She is worth every penny.”

KEN GIBSON

“I just have to say the professionalism and conduct of the Hall and Hall attorneys was fantastic from the time we walked in the door. We met Sarah then Mrs. Martha Hall. They were all very attentive and compassionate. Kara, our paralegal, was always there for us. She was always there via email or phone contact. We had a very sensitive legal case and Mrs. Martha Hall walked us through it with compassion and professionalism. I cannot say enough good things about this group or thank them enough for doing what needed to be done.”

Who is Involved in an Car Accident Claim?

When an accident happens there are typically two parties involved, but sometimes more if there are more than two vehicles involved. Anyone involved, however, breaks up into two groups: the liable party and the plaintiff(s).

You would be the plaintiff if you have been seriously hurt in an car accident. You are going to be filing the claim and asking to get justice for your damages.

The liable party is the person who caused the accident and therefore is responsible for your injuries. You will have to be able to prove that they were negligent and that their negligence led to your harm.

You will prove those things with the help of one of our Georgia car accident lawyers. They are going to be responsible for helping you get a fair result and they will defend your rights.

Lastly, you have the insurance company that represents the liable party. They are going to be trying very hard to reduce or throw out your claim. They want to save themselves money because they are responsible for giving you a full and fair compensation award for your damages.

Some Tips and Mistakes to Avoid Making

If you want to get a fair result, there are several things you need to do and several things you must avoid doing entirely.

Something that you absolutely should do is hire a Georgia car accident lawyers. You’ve likely never had to represent yourself in an auto accident claim and, therefore, may not know all that much about how to do it successfully. That is why you should hire someone who does this day in and out. Let them use their years of experience to help you get the results you deserve.

What you should not do is wait to call and hire one of our Georgia car accident lawyers. There is a two year statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Georgia. That means if you try to file your claim after two years from the date of your accident, you will not be able to get justice. You have to file within two years. Waiting even a few weeks could mean that your evidence goes missing and your witnesses forget important info.

Speaking of evidence, make sure that you try to get some from the scene of the accident. Take photos and videos of the road, the vehicles, and your injuries, if you can. Get contact information from witnesses.

Do NOT under any circumstances admit to guilt. You may be caught up in the moment and not be able to tell for sure how the accident happened. If you admit to guilt and we later determine you are not at fault, we are going to have a harder time defending your rights.

Do NOT give the insurance company a recorded statement. They are looking to reduce what they owe you. They are going to try to call you and get you to talk to them about the accident. Don’t do this. You are not legally obligated to give them info.

Do have one of our Georgia car accident lawyers talk to them for you. Allow them to take over communication with the insurance company. They are going to be able to handle it in a way that doesn’t affect your ability to seek rightful justice.

Lastly, you absolutely need to seek immediate medical attention. You need to get your injuries looked at. We want you to be able to get as healthy as you possibly can. Not only will you start feeling better, we can use your medical records as proof that you are, in fact, injured and that the liable party caused all of this damage to you.

Get the Compensation You Deserve

You are going to have to prove that there was negligence involved in your accident and that negligence led to your injuries. In Georgia, if you share fault, you can lose out on compensation. Your award will be reduced if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident. Your lawyer is going to fight hard to prevent this from happening to you.

Frequently Asked Car Accident Questions

How do I choose the right car accident attorney How do I choose the right car accident attorney?

Clients often call and want to know what they need to do to select the best attorney to represent them in an auto accident. The key point that any client needs to look for is that the attorney has an extensive amount of experience in the area of auto accidents, specifically. It is a very unique brand of litigation, and you want someone who practices and litigates in trial auto accidents on a regular basis. If you’ve been in an auto accident and you need the assistance of an attorney, I would love to help you with your case. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.

How do you determine the value of my car accident case?

Clients often call who have been involved in auto accidents and want to know how to determine the value of their particular accident case. There are lots of things that go into the determination of value in an auto accident matter. They include medical bills. They include rehabilitation time. They include the extent of the injury that occurred. They also include to some degree, although very minor, the property damage involved, as well. The best thing you can do to assist your attorney who is pursuing your auto accident case is to keep track of all of your medical bills, journal your recovery, take notes about how you feel each day, and photograph the injury as well. That may sound a little bit morbid, but it certainly will help the judge or the jury understand exactly what you’ve been through and it will increase the value of your particular case. If you’ve been in an auto accident and need assistance, please don’t hesitate to call us. We’d love to help you.

How long do I have to file an auto accident claim in Georgia?

Our clients regularly call with questions about how long they have to file a claim for their auto accident in Georgia. In Georgia, you have a two-year statute of limitations on any auto accident. What that means is you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit in court and if you do not honor that two-year window, that statute of limitations, you may not be able to recover the damages in your accident. If you’ve been in an accident and have questions about that, we would love to help you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.

How long will it take to resolve my auto accident case?

Clients often call about how long it will take to resolve their auto accident claim in Georgia. There is no set amount of time that your claim will remain open. Every case is different. The one thing you do need to remember is you do have to file the lawsuit within two years of the auto accident occurring. If you are still getting treatment, you’re still seeing doctors, if you get to the point where you’re about 18 months out from your accident, you need to see a lawyer immediately because you do not want that statute of limitations, that two-year requirement, to pass because you may lose your ability to recover for your auto accident. If you’ve been in an auto accident or have questions about one, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to help you.

Should I talk to the insurance company after an auto accident?

I was talking with a client of mine the other day and they had just received a call from an insurance claim advisor. My client had been in an accident and he wanted to know if it was a good idea to talk with the insurance company. It is absolutely not a good idea to talk with the insurance claim adjustor. It is better to retain counsel and have an attorney speak with that person. You may be required to provide a recorded statement about what happened. It is always better to do that in the presence of a lawyer who can guide you and help you through that process. The insurance adjustors are there to minimize the claim and you do not want to expose yourself to having your auto accident or injury minimized because of a conversation that you had with a claims adjustor. If you have any questions or if you’ve been in an auto accident and have other questions about that, we would love to help you. Please call us.

What common mistakes do people make in their car accident case What common mistakes do people make in their car accident case?

I have clients call who want to know what the specific mistakes are that people often make in an auto accident claim. The mistakes are not documenting your injury, not keeping your medical bills together, and not journaling how you feel each day as you recover during your accident. Probably the largest mistake is waiting beyond the two-year required period for the filing of a lawsuit in an auto accident. You’re required to file your lawsuit two years from the date of the accident; if you don’t do that, you may not be able to recover the damages that you suffered. If you’ve been in an auto accident or have questions about that, please don’t hesitate to call me. I would love to help you.

What happens if I get in an auto accident and the other driver doesn’t have insurance?

I had a client recently call who was in a car accident and the other driver did not have insurance. In Georgia, you can make a claim against an uninsured motorist policy. It is a minimum amount of damage coverage, but you are authorized to make a claim under this particular policy. If you are in that situation, if you’ve been in an accident and understand that the other driver is not insured, I’d love to talk with you about your specific case to see what’s available for your recovery. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.

What should I do if I’m in a car accident?

Many times, folks call me, and they want to know what to do if they’re in an auto accident and they’re injured in Georgia. The main thing that you need to do is have the accident documented by law enforcement or the police. That is the initial thing that you need to do— call the police so that the damage and your condition are documented in a police report. You also need to maintain your medical bills, gather those up, make a list of the doctors that you’re required to see to recover from the accident. More importantly, you do need to get to an attorney as soon as you can because they can help you with other tips and advice about how to maximize the recovery in your auto accident case. If you’ve been in an auto accident or have questions about it, we would love to help you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What steps should I follow for my car accident case?

We have people call us and they want to know what to do to start a claim that resulted from an auto accident that occurred in Georgia. What are the first steps to start that claim? The first steps would be to make sure that your auto accident is documented by law enforcement, if at all possible, that you make a note of whatever witnesses were present at the scene of the auto accident. As time goes on, you need to maintain your medical bills, write down the doctors that you see, and journal your recovery. Eventually, you may be in a position to have to file a lawsuit, but you have two years, basically, from the date of the accident until you are required in Georgia to file that lawsuit. You are not immediately required to file suit, but the first steps would be gathering all the information relating to your injury and then contacting an attorney as soon as you can. If you’ve been in an auto accident and you need assistance, we’d be happy to help you with that. Please call us.

Who’s going to pay my medical bills from an auto accident Who’s going to pay my medical bills from an auto accident?

I had a friend of mine recently call who was in a car accident in Georgia who wanted to know who was going to pay for her medical bills. Your medical bills are part of your auto accident claim and, more likely than not but depending on your circumstance, the insurance company will cover your medical bills. It is very important that you keep a full record of your medical bills, that you write down every doctor that you see. It is all part and parcel of your auto accident claim. It’s a very important part of it. If you have questions about this or anything else related to an auto accident that you’ve been in, please don’t hesitate to contact me. We’d love to help you.
