Car Accident in Thomson call us at 706-955-1559 today!
The most important things to know is that the insurance company is already working to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. You will not be taken seriously until you have an experienced attorney on your side. Insurance companies respond only when they have too. You are not threatening to them alone. You should hire us, the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm; we have the expertise in car accident cases. Your criminal attorney or the guy that represented your cousin on a DUI is probably not the person you want. You want a true car accident lawyer with proven results and trial experience.
What We Must Prove To Win
You must prove that the auto accident was the other driver’s fault. In other words, they did something a reasonable driver wouldn’t do like run a stop sign or drive 15mph over the speed limit. In Thomson, Georgia these things happen every single day.
The insurance company may allege that you were the negligent party. In Georgia, you can recover if you were at-fault; however, only if the judge/jury determines that your fault was less than 50%. In the event you are determined to be some percentage at fault (but 50% or less); the damages award will be reduced by that percentage.
You must prove the auto accident was the direct cause of your damages. There is no reason for you to be in perfect health before the wreck to recover. All you have to prove is the accident caused the injuries you are currently suffering from. In some situations, this includes an aggravation of a pre-existing injury.
Our accident attorneys will maximize the amount you can collect. If the case goes to trial, the jury determines the amount you will be compensated. On the other hand, your case can settle which means you and the insurance company reach an agreement prior to filing a lawsuit.
