Turn To Respected Personal Injury Attorney Derek M. Hays

If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, by a botched medical procedure, or while in the care of a nursing home, you should not have to cope with staggering medical costs, lost wages, or other resulting burdens on your own.  In most cases, recovering the money you deserve requires wrangling with an insurance company that aims to pay as little as possible to settle your claim, or pay nothing at all.  Before giving them a chance to deny your claim or lowball you with an insulting offer, call and speak with Derek M. Hays.

At the Law Offices of Derek M. Hays, we are here for you.  Let us deal with the insurance company.  We know them well!  Mr. Hays has more than 20 years of experience specializing in these claims and fighting for injured individuals throughout Georgia.
