Pedestrian Accidents

Jon R. Hawk fights for your rights

People go out walking every day in Middle Georgia. They go down to the store, or walk the dog, or simple go out to enjoy a sunny day. Usually, cars and trucks pass by on the road beside them without incident. But it only takes the actions of one negligent driver to cause a serious accident that leaves someone seriously hurt. That’s when Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC can help.

When a car or truck hits a pedestrian, the injuries can be extensive. The person injured may not be able to walk temporarily—or permanently. Injuries can include broken bones, head injuries or spinal cord injuries. Macon pedestrian accident attorney Jon R. Hawk fights to get injured pedestrians the compensation they need and deserve for their injuries.

How do pedestrian accidents happen? In some cases, a driver was distracted—for example, texting, talking on the phone or changing the radio station. Some drivers are reckless, and were speeding or changed lanes suddenly. Others were under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Whatever the reason, Jon holds negligent drivers responsible.

Helping you recover compensation

Injured pedestrians can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, emotional trauma, pain and suffering and other damages. Jon meets with you to learn how the accident has impacted your life and what you need to recover as much as possible. He determines the true amounts of damages you’ve suffered.

And he won’t settle for attempts by the insurance company to make you go away with a lowball offer that doesn’t meet your needs. Jon started his career representing the insurance companies; he knows how they work. Now he uses that knowledge to help people who have been injured get the compensation they deserve.

Jon is often able to negotiate a settlement that works for you when insurance companies see he is prepared to take them to court. But if they won’t negotiate, Jon will fight for you at trial. He is known for litigation and is proud of the case results that have helped so many clients.
