Accident Investigation

Police departments take information, but they do not have the resources to perform a thorough investigation for every "routine" accident. This may be fine for everyone else, but when it is your accident there is nothing "routine" about it.

Merrills is the premier accident investigator in Maine and New England

You may be injured, or you may be the target of a lawsuit due to other injuries. You may be an insurance company trying to get to the bottom of what really happened.  Merrill’s Investigations is here to help.

Merrill's accident investigation specialists are able to locate and interview potential witnesses, asses the veracity of their statements, and provide an opinion on how each may perform as a witness in court. Our investigators can evaluate police reports for accuracy and thoroughness and conduct scenes reviews to ensure all of the evidence was identified and recorded.
