    Mr. Hagood and his team are the absolute best. Our dad was killed in an 18 wheeler trucking accident and my family and I were lost and didn't know what to do. Mr. Will went out of his way to help us get our lives back on the right path after my family's loss. He jumped into action and immediately called one of the expert witnesses to inspect the tractor trailer and the road where it happened. He kept us in the loop at each step and explained exactly what was going to happen and when. He is so knowledgeable and skilled at finding careless and avoidable errors made by a big trucking company, and he made them pay for it. Though nothing can bring my dad back, Will and Miss Allison went out of their way to get us the maximum justice we deserved. We were broken and this firm put the pieces back together for us, and my family will be forever grateful.

    I was involved in a pretty serious wreck with a tractor trailer. I suffered a TBI and required surgery on both wrists. Hagood Injury Law was with me through the entire ordeal. I got exceptional results and feel like I made connections I will keep for life. I would recommend Will and his staff to all my friends and family, and in fact I have. Trust was well earned.

    My experience with Haygood injury Law Firm was superb .He was available and answered all my questions.He fought hard and got me the money I deserved.
    20:07 02/05/24
    If you’ve been in an accident caused by someone else I highly recommend Will Haygood and his team. He was wonderful to work with and always kept me updated through out the whole process. He is just as qualified as any of the lawyers at any of the larger law firms and knows all the laws and rules just as well and will get you the most money possible from your accident. I actually signed with one of the more well known law firms at first and actually fired them a few months after I hired them. I felt like a number and actually received a really nasty phone call from one of the main lawyers and was shocked at how rude and demeaning he was to me. I knew when he acted like that that I had made the right decision to go with Will and his team instead. My case took almost two years to settle because I had to have 3 surgeries from breaking my leg in the accident. But Will never pressured me to settle for anything less. He constantly advised me of every option available to me along the way, answered every single question that I had and supported every decision that I made. I know that he truly wanted what was best for me and for me to be compensated for all that happened to me because of the accident. Will and all of his assistants are awesome and if I ever need an injury lawyer again in the future he will definitely be my first call. Don’t wait. Call him. You won’t regret it!!

    I was in an auto accident June of 2022 that left me very injured. My primary care doctor and many other doctors would not see me due to it being auto related. I was suffering and lost. Then I was referred to Will and he took the time to talk to me and make sure I was very informed of how this process works. From there I felt secure with my decision to let Will handle my case. His office scheduled all my doctor visits and made sure I was seen right away. They stayed in contact with me through every step of the claim and made sure I had all the information needed. In a time of uncertainty and suffering, Will and his staff gave me comfort and security that my health was their main priority! My case was settled and all medical bills were paid and then some. I can not thank them enough for guiding me through this and having my best interest!
    00:47 01/12/24
    Will is such an amazing guy! He really cares about his clients - and his personal story for why he does what he does explains why he treats you like family. I highly recommend Will Hagood.

    Mr. Hagood was incredible to work with. We thought the case had no chance of going anywhere after a previous law firm screwed everything up. Attorney Hagood took over the case and had a policy limits settlement offer in a matter of weeks. Cant recommend him enough. He was quick to respond and always took the time to explain every step. Thank you!
