Insurance companies prey on individuals who do not have an attorney. They know people who are not represented do not understand the law and likely do not understand what they are truly entitled to. For over 40 years, the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm has specialized in helping accident victims. We believe that our expertise, knowledge, and commitment give us an advantage.
Advantages of Pursuing a Lawsuit After an Accident in Georgia
The first advantage of pursuing a lawsuit following your accident is that it will likely give you greater leverage in settling your case. Many insurance companies will drag their feet so long as it doesn’t “cost” them anything. Once the lawsuit is filed, however, they must engage a Tucker injury and car accident attorney to appear in court, file a response to the lawsuit, and begin preparing the case in the event that it goes to trial. Filing a lawsuit has a tendency to motivate reluctant insurance companies to settle your claim in order to reduce their legal fees.
Another advantage is that it will resolve your case more quickly. While Georgia allows two years for you to file a lawsuit in a personal injury case, most people cannot wait that long to get the compensation they need. The sooner you file a lawsuit, the sooner you can get the compensation you need to pay for your medical treatment, cover your lost wages, and recoup your other losses.
Lastly, a lawsuit is often the only way to resolve a claim when the insurance company will not pay a reasonable settlement. Filing a lawsuit will therefore also result in a greater recovery than would have otherwise been achieved.
