Construction Accidents

Macon attorney who fights for injured workers

Construction workers have a dangerous job. They face a regular risk of falls, power tool accidents, falling materials or equipment, electrical shock and other hazards. When construction workers in Middle Georgia are injured on the job, Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC makes sure they get the compensation they deserve.

Attorney Jon R. Hawk knows how injuries can affect the lives of construction workers and their families. He determines the true damages you’ve suffered as a result and explores every option available for compensation. This includes workers’ compensation claims and third-party lawsuits.

Our service starts with helping you with your Georgia workers' compensation claim. Whether you are filing your initial claim or need help with an appeal, Jon can help you make your case. However, because you have access to workers' compensation, you can't sue your employer for additional money. And since the disability pay benefits are only equal to two-thirds of the average weekly pay, the money soon runs short.

Jon reviews your workplace accident to determine whether a third party may be held liable for paying you additional compensation. Third-party lawsuits may be filed against the site property owner, a negligent manufacturer of tools or equipment, or even a subcontractor or other employee working on site.

The experience that makes a difference
