Kyle Waddell

Kyle Waddell is a partner on Fulcher Hagler’s litigation team, representing individuals and businesses in personal injury lawsuits and commercial disputes. Kyle approaches every client with the sincere desire to understand their needs and guide them through the often-unfamiliar litigation process. Kyle takes pride in preparing cases to be tried—or argued on appeal if necessary—while remaining alert to any opportunity to resolve a case favorably. This requires simultaneous attention to detail and big-picture thinking.

Kyle is a trial lawyer and defends a variety of cases, from medical malpractice and trucking/transportation suits, to cases alleging construction defects and contract disputes. He enjoys the challenge of finding practical ways to resolve disputes, but knows the best path to resolution is being prepared to assert your position in court. Kyle has taken cases to trial and successfully asserted his clients’ positions on appeal. He recently became licensed to practice law in South Carolina and looks forward to representing clients on both sides of the Savannah River.

A native of the Augusta area, Kyle attended Greenbrier High School before earning his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia, graduating magna cum laude and cum laude, respectively. He is a member of the Augusta Bar Association, the Georgia Defense Lawyers Association, the Defense Research Institute, and the State Bars of Georgia and South Carolina.

Kyle and his wife Emily live in North Augusta with their dogs Winston and Penny. He is a member and past board member of the Augusta West Rotary Club. Away from the office, Kyle enjoys playing golf, cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs, tending the grill, and spending time with his wife and family.

Client Success Stories:

  • Kyle and co-counsel from another firm recently affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against a local physician when the plaintiff failed to prosecute the case. The case was dismissed by operation of law, but the trial court entered an extraordinary order to try and revive the case anyway. The Court of Appeals vacated the trial court’s order, confirming that the case stood dismissed and Kyle’s client was no longer subject to suit.
  • Kyle obtained summary judgment in a lawsuit seeking to require an insurance company to pay for damages to a vehicle that a dealership did not seek to collect from the buyer, when the buyer failed to disclose material facts about her vehicles and insurance policy. Because the policy was not enforceable, the trial court agreed that the insurer could not be compelled to pay the dealership for damage to the subject vehicle.
  • Firm partners John Price and Kyle Waddell persuaded the trial court that there was insufficient evidence to hold a trampoline park operator liable for an injury sustained by a park patron. After the patron appealed the trial court’s ruling, the Court of Appeals affirmed the entry of summary judgment in favor of the park operator, which has now had all claims against it dismissed. The park operator will not be subjected to the time and expense of a trial, thanks in part to the firm’s successful motion for summary judgment and work on appeal.
