If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone or something else, you could be entitled to compensation to cover the medical and occupational costs associated with your injuries. The best way to ensure that you recover the full amount you are entitled to is by working with an accident lawyer in your area, but how do you choose?
Experience You Can Trust
The American Bar Association advises anyone looking to hire an attorney to look towards one thing first when choosing: experience. The Black accident lawyers from Merritt & Merritt Law Firm have many years of combined experience helping clients like you collect what they deserve. During your free case review, we’ll discuss the facts and circumstances of your accident and injuries, and let you know if we think you have a case that we can help on.
Being Injured in an Accident Caused by Someone/Something Else Could Entitle You to Compensation
Whether your injuries happened in a car accident, truck or bus wreck, rideshare accident, slip & fall, or workplace injury, you could be entitled to extensive compensation. Your compensation includes your short- and long-term medical bills, lost wages after the injury and any long-term impact on your earnings ability. In some cases, additional damages like pain and suffering are also available.
You can only collect damages that you prove with evidence and demand through a properly filed insurance claim or lawsuit. The insurance claims process can be complex and time-consuming, and the insurance companies will deny or reduce whichever claims they can to support their profit margins.
With a local Georgia African American car accident attorney from Merritt & Merritt Law Firm by your side, we’ll handle the entire claims process on your behalf. You can focus on recovering from your injuries while we handle the compensation you are awarded for your costs and other damages.

We take the time to get to know you and your case so that we can provide top-notch, personalized representation throughout our professional relationship.
Our Attorneys Know the Area and Local Courts
When it comes time to hire an attorney, not only must you look for one with experience in the area of law that your case is concerned with, they also need to know the local courts. Some attorneys spend their entire careers without ever seeing the inside of a courtroom, as more often than not cases will settle out of court.
The lack of courtroom experience on behalf of some attorneys can make them hesitate to refuse an unfair settlement, as they don’t know the courts, and don’t know if they can win. You don’t want an attorney who is quick to settle, you want one the insurance companies and their attorneys know will force them into a costly court battle if they don’t give you what you deserve.
The Georgia car accident attorneys from Merritt & Merritt Law Firm will not hesitate to take the insurance companies to court on your behalf, and they’ll be more likely to deal fairly knowing this.
Free Case Reviews are a Great Chance to Get to Know Your Attorney
While some law firms do not offer free initial consultations, we believe they are an important building block in the attorney-client relationship. If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone or something else, a personal injury attorney can help you accurately calculate your complete damages, then collect them by handling the entire process on your behalf.
Simply being injured however does not necessarily mean that you have a case, which is why the initial consultation is also important. The attorney you are speaking to will collect some important information about the accident, your injuries, the parties involved, and the likely causes of the accident or incident.
Initial consultations are generally limited in time, so to make the most of them:
- Make sure to have relevant records and information readily available so you can present important information easily and answer any related questions
- Take notes about the incident you are calling about before your consultation, taking the time to consider what happened before, during, and after the accident or incident
- Bring any evidence you have from the accident, including photographs and/or records of your injuries, damage to your personal property or vehicle, and the scene of the accident or incident
- Write a list of any important questions you hope to have answered
When you decide to consult with a lawyer on your injury, it is also important to know what to expect. Generally, after collecting information, your attorney should be able to provide a brief assessment of your case, an overview of your main options, and an estimate on how much your case could be worth.
Choosing a lawyer is not a decision to be taken lightly, as you will interact with them a good deal during the initial period of the case. It is important that you feel comfortable with your attorney representing your interests, and also with their experience and ability to win your case.
