The Law Firm of Merritt & Merritt

Albany Injury and Car Accident Attorneys

Car Accident? Call the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm today at 229-469-8266.

For over 40 years, the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm has been respected as one of the leading personal injury and car accident law firms in Albany and throughout southwest Georgia.  Accidents occur in Albany every day, some severe and others minor, but when there is an accident, it is always prudent to get counsel from an experienced attorney. Our Albany Injury and Car Accident Attorneys specialize in car accident, personal injury cases, and slip and falls.  Some firms consider themselves a general practice wherein they practice all areas of law.  We, however, decided that if we wanted to be the best we would need to spend our expertise and resources handling only car accidents and personal injury cases.

You may be traveling on Georgia Route 3 or U.S. Route 82 and see the traffic slowing just ahead of you.  The police and ambulance speed by in the emergency lanes and at that point you know it must be an accident. All of a sudden you feel your car impacted from the rear and you are pushed into the car in front of you. Car accidents are not planned and almost always require the accident victim to seek medical treatment and vehicle repairs.

Our Albany Injury and Car Accident Attorneys can assist you with medical treatment, medical bills, getting your car repaired and a rental provided during that time.  We will even make sure the insurance company pays for the diminution in value of your vehicle; that is, we will force the insurance company to pay any loss of value that your vehicle may have from the accident.

When is a vehicle declared a total loss?  Typically, cars are considered to be “totaled” when the cost to repair the vehicle is higher than the actual cash value (often referred to as ACV) of the vehicle. Otherwise, the vehicle does not meet this criterion at which time the insurance company will be required to repair your vehicle.  Georgia Law states you cannot force an insurance company to pay a specific repair shop to fix your car; however, you can request a property damage check from the insurance company for the damages and take the vehicle wherever you see fit.

At the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm, we can provide the services you need to get back on your feet.  From the initial consultation to when you receive your settlement check, we will walk you through the process and reduce your stress when we can.  Most cases settle within 6 to 9 months; however, some do settle sooner.

Call us now at 229-469-8266.  Our Albany Injury and Car Accident Attorneys are ready to assist you!
