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.”

“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.”

Parties Involved in a Personal Injury Claim

The case begins when you are hurt. You are the plaintiff of the case if you have been injured by someone else’s negligence.

That negligent party is the liable party who is responsible for your injuries. You are going to need to prove at some point that their negligence caused your injuries for you to have a claim.

The people who will help you with that are the Georgia personal injury lawyers. They are going to be the ones representing you through this whole long process.

Lastly, there is the liable party’s insurance company, which is responsible for actually giving you the compensation. They will try their very best to reduce the amount of compensation they give you possible down to zero if they can.

The Georgia personal injury lawyers are there to prevent that from happening. They want to help you get the full compensation award.

We would be happy to guide you toward strong representation.

Types of Personal Injury Cases That Are Represented

You are likely in a lot of pain. Personal injury is an umbrella term that covers a lot of incidents. Personal injury can involve the following types of accidents:

  • car accidents
  • bike accidents
  • pedestrian accidents
  • slip and falls
  • negligent security

This is not a comprehensive list. If you suffered injuries because someone else was negligent, you may be eligible for compensation. You deserve justice for their wrongdoing.

One of the Georgia personal injury lawyers we can refer you to would be more than willing to hear the details of your case during a consultation. From there, you can decide what legal action to take.

Mistakes You Do Not Want to Make in a Personal Injury Claim

You are likely not experienced in defending yourself in personal injury claims, so a big mistake would be to try filing a claim without the help of a personal injury lawyer. They know what will make your case strong and they will be able to guide you through the obstacles you face. You also are more likely to get a full result with the help of a lawyer than you would get on your own.

A mistake that a lot of people make is talking to the insurance company who represents the liable party. They want very much to protect their bottom line. They are not interested in giving you the compensation that you deserve. They know that if you’re badly injured, you are eligible for compensation, and they want to stop you from getting it. A way they do that is by asking you to give them a recorded statement.

They will preface the interaction with cordial behavior. They want you to think they are there to help you resolve this situation quickly. You do not legally have to give them a statement. All they need is your name and insurance info if you’ve been hurt by their insured. This recorded statement is a tool that they use to get you to say something that would hurt your case.

Another huge mistake a lot of people make is that they wait too long to talk to a lawyer. There is a statute of limitations of two years. If you wait longer than two years to try to file your personal injury claim, you are no longer going to be eligible for compensation. If you are waiting up until the statute of limitations almost runs out, you are going to see that your witnesses may have forgotten very important information. That evidence that could have helped you has disappeared. Act quickly to ensure you have a strong case.

Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions

Can I avoid trial for my personal injury case Can I avoid trial for my personal injury case?

I had a client recently call me. He is involved in a personal injury suit and was very nervous about going to trial. He wanted to know if there was something he could do to avoid a trial in his particular case. In Georgia, you can settle your personal injury suit by virtue of negotiations between your attorney and the attorney for the insurance company or the individual who is liable for the injury that occurred to you. You can mediate or you can settle just by exchanging offers back and forth. It is not absolutely required that you go to trial if you are able to reach a reasonable settlement that you’re satisfied with.

If you’ve been injured or in an accident, and need help with your case, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to help you.

Can I recover for emotional damages in my personal injury case?

I have a client who I’m representing in a personal injury matter, and she called to ask if she could recover emotional damages in her personal injury suit. Emotional damages are recoverable; however, you would definitely need to prove those up by way of counseling notes and therapist notes to prove the emotional impact of the injury. You can testify to it, you can journal things, and that will assist your attorney in your case, but ideally you would want to have a therapist or a counselor who can come and testify on your behalf to explain to a judge or jury exactly what you have been through emotionally.

If you have been injured or in an accident, and need assistance or want to discuss the case, I’m happy to help you. Please call me.

Could my personal injury case settle before going to court?

I had a client call recently. He was involved in a personal injury, and this was prior to his suit being filed. He wanted to know if his case could settle before a lawsuit was in fact filed. In Georgia, you can settle your personal injury claim prior to the filing of any lawsuit. In fact, the majority of cases are resolved prior to the filing of the suit. That benefits you in that your attorney’s fees are less, if you are able to settle it prior to the filing of a suit. The way that you can assist your attorney is to make sure that you bring to your lawyer documentation of all your medical bills, journal your injuries, take photographs as you’re going through the healing process. All of these things will assist your attorney in trying to resolve your case prior to the filing of a lawsuit.

If you’ve been injured or in an accident, I’d love to talk with you about your specific case. Please don’t hesitate to call me.

How do I choose the right personal injury attorney?

I had a client call and ask questions about how to choose the best personal injury attorney for an accident that occurred in Georgia. The best way to choose a very good personal injury attorney is to make sure that you choose someone with experience who practices in the area where your particular injury or accident occurred. You would want to get someone who is certified in the county where the accident or injury occurred, and you would definitely want someone with as much experience as you can find.

You want someone who clearly sets forth that they’re willing to litigate your case, willing to go to court. Internet research on attorneys is a very good way to determine who the best suited attorney is to assist you with a personal injury or an accident. I’d be happy to help you with that. If you have suffered a personal injury or have been in a car accident, please don’t hesitate to call me.

How long does it take to settle a personal injury case?

I had a client recently call, who had been in a personal injury accident case, and wanted to know how long it would take to get his case settled or resolved. There is no guarantee or limited amount of time in Georgia to settle a case. You do have a two-year statute of limitations from the time the incident or accident occurred to file it in court. You don’t have to have it settled by then, but, if a lawsuit is required, you’re required to file that lawsuit within two years after the injury or accident occurred.

If you have been injured or have been in an accident, and have questions about it, I’d love to help you with that. Please do not hesitate to call me.

How will a pre-existing condition impact my personal injury case How will a pre-existing condition impact my personal injury case?

Many times, clients that I represent in personal injury cases have preexisting conditions, and they want to know how that will impact their case in Georgia. If you have a preexisting condition, it will impact the value of your settlement and may very well decrease it to some degree, depending on the specific facts and circumstances of your injury. This is a very technical question, but, as a general rule, if you have a preexisting condition, it may lessen the amount that you are able to receive in the settlement. I’d love to talk with you about your specific case, however, and give you guidance in this area. If you’ve been injured or in an accident, please call me. I’d love to help you.

Is there a minimum amount of medical bills needed to have a personal injury case?

I had a friend of mine call, who was involved in a personal injury accident case, and she wanted to know if there was a minimum number of medical bills required in order to pursue her injury or accident case in Georgia. There is not a minimum amount of medical bills required in order to pursue an injury or accident case. However, the amount of medical bills, the amount of medical treatment, the amount or size of your injury will make all the difference in how your case is resolved. If you’ve been in an accident or had a personal injury occur, please, I’d love to help you with that. We can discuss your specific case, and I can give you recommendations based on the information that you provide. I look forward to hearing from you.

Should I accept the first settlement offer for my personal injury case?

Clients often call, who I’m representing in personal injury suits, and ask whether or not they should accept the first offer and settle on the first offer made in their case. I wholeheartedly recommend that you do not accept the first offer, and that you allow the negotiation process to occur. You are likely to garner a larger settlement if you allow the attorneys to negotiate back and forth. If you have been injured or in an accident and want to discuss your case, I’d love to help you with that. Please call me.

What is the role of an expert witness in my personal injury case?

Clients often call, who I’m assisting with personal injury issues and cases, and want to know what specifically an expert witness is and what part they play in a personal injury suit in Georgia. An expert witness can be a doctor who discusses the injury that’s occurred, talk about how long it will take to rehabilitate from that particular injury. It can be an accident expert who explains to a judge or a jury how this particular injury occurred and whose fault it was. Many times, expert witnesses are used in an effort to enhance your case and prove the damages to the maximum degree.

If you’ve been in an accident or been injured in any way, I’d love to help you with your matter. Please call me at any time.

Will my personal injury case go to trial Will my personal injury case go to trial?

I have clients who I assist with personal injury or accident cases and they always wonder whether or not their case is going to go to trial in Georgia. Personal injury and accident cases, for the most part, tend to settle, whether it be in mediation or negotiations between the attorney and the insurance company. It is a fairly rare incident that they would go to trial. If you are involved in an injury or accident case, however, we are prepared to take your case to trial and will advocate for you vigorously.

If you’re in that situation, we would love to help you. Please contact us.
