Have you been in a car accident? Call our Atlanta car accident attorneys today at 404-975-1775.
As we all know Atlanta is Georgia’s capital and it’s also infamously known as Georgia’s accident capital. On every news station day, noon, or night you hear of a bad accident that’s happened on I-20, I-75, I-85 or I-275. Often times, the accidents are so bad that our hearts go out to these people, who we don’t know, because we all know someone who has been in a serious accident.
At the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm our Atlanta injury and accident attorneys are here to help you with any size car accident or injury. We understand that any injury can be life altering at worst and a horrible inconvenience at best. Either way, you did not ask to be injured by another’s negligence and the person at fault should be held responsible for their actions. In Georgia, all drivers are required to have minimum liability coverage of $25,000 on their vehicle for bodily injuries; however, many drivers, including trucking companies, have liability policies in excess of $1,000,000. It is important you contact an attorney as soon as you can because evidence disappears and memories fade. An attorney can capture this evidence quickly if hired.

Car accident attorney fees
Car accident attorneys usually charge a contingency fee. In a contingent fee arrangement, the attorney agrees to accept a fixed percentage of the recovery. If you win the case, the attorney's fee comes out of the money awarded to you. If there is no recover, no fee. Typically the fee ranges from 30 to 40 percent, and 33.33 percent is the standard rate. If you have a 33.33% contingency fee arrangement and you recover $100,000 in your car accident case, your attorney will receive $33,333 and you would receive $66,667.
Lawyers typically have two fee structures: 1.) Contingency fee which the attorney gets paid from what you recover. 2.) A flat rate fee is normally charged in criminal or family law cases. The fee is set upon an agreed contractual amount between the attorney and client. An example, a client retains an attorney for a traffic ticket. The attorney charges $500 to handle the ticket-this is a flat rate fee.
