Why you need a car accident attorney
Medical expenses can easily pile up after a car accident. Sometimes these expenses add up to be more than the amount of coverage the at-fault driver has on their liability policy. Beyond the medical expenses, you most likely will miss work to recover and care for injured family members. The medical expenses combined with lost income develops into additional financial stress of families. Nevertheless, the auto accident attorneys at the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm are experienced in dealing with these situations, and will work to maximize the amount of compensation you need to recover from these issues.
Car insurance providers are not looking out for you
Insurance providers of the at-fault vehicle are not looking out for your best interest. They represent themselves and the at-fault party. While they may sound pleasant, their mission is to alleviate their losses without handling your property damage justly. They will try to provide you with the minimum amount of compensation possible, even if the at-fault party was driving under the influence or using electronic devices while driving. At the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm, we represent our clients and get the maximum compensation from the insurance adjusters.
Damage to your property after an auto accident
The damage to your property resulting from an auto accident may hurt worse than the injuries, and you will need compensation for these damages. Even if your car is not totaled, you are entitled to the value lost and loss of use after an accident. Loss of use can be compensated in monetary form or with a rental vehicle. Value lost is the difference between what your vehicle was worth prior to the accident, compared to what it is worth after the accident. The insurance providers are not going to offer this form of compensation; it must be demanded. At the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm, we are willing to win the battle for our clients.
