Drunk Driving Accidents

Your rights matter to car accident lawyer Jon Hawk

Drinking and driving sadly remains one of the most common causes of car accidents. Drivers should know better than to get behind the wheel of a car after drinking too much. Unfortunately, many people still do – and the consequences can be catastrophic.

Drunk driving accidents might seem straightforward. The other driver was clearly breaking the law and caused a serious accident. But such cases often turn out to be much more complicated. That’s why it’s critical that injury victims have an experienced attorney on their side, defending their rights.

In Georgia, victims of drunk driving accidents rely on Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC  of Macon to be their voice for justice. Attorney Hawk and his legal team have years of experience handling such complex cases in Bibb County and throughout the area. We know how the legal system works and what needs to be done to build the strongest possible case.

Common legal issues injury victims face

Many people wonder why they need a lawyer if their accident was caused by a drunk driver in Georgia. That’s a fair question that deserves an honest answer. In our experience, we often find that many legal issues often come up during such cases. These can include:

  • The driver denies being intoxicated at the time of the accident.
  • The insurance company for the driver downplays the seriousness of your injuries.
  • Delays that affect your ability to obtain the financial compensation you deserve.

Remember, the police officer investigating your accident only cares about finding the facts, not whether you are fairly compensated for your crash. That’s our job. And that’s why we want to work with you.
