Q: Do I have a case?
A: Whether you have a
case depends on a lot of factors, the most important one being how you
were injured. If you have been injured in an auto accident and
it is someone else’s fault, you may have a case. If you have
been injured while on the job, were you doing what you normally do at
work or on a work errand, or were you doing something more out of the
ordinary? If you have been injured by a drug or medical device
that has a known and unreasonably high risk of serious side effects,
you may have a South Carolina pharmaceutical litigation case.
Each type of case involves
completely different issues. And within each type of case, particular
details make each case different. The same exact set of facts
and occurrences never happens twice, making it difficult to know how
each case will play out. Some small factors that seem unimportant
make a huge difference, and other things that “just don’t seem right”
sometimes aren’t part of a legal cause of action. You need an
attorney with experience in these sorts of cases, and with experience
getting people the money they deserve when they have been injured.

Q: How can I win a personal injury settlement?
A: Personal injury settlements
are normally available to people who have been injured where the responsible
party is clearly liable. In many cases involving South Carolina auto accidents,
injuries on the job, and defective drugs and medical devices, one of
the parties is clearly responsible. In these cases the defendant
may offer to settle the case out of court to save both parties the time
and expense of taking a case to trial.
To win a personal injury settlement,
make sure to do exactly what your doctor tells you to do until you are
released, and consult an attorney as quickly as possible. Do not
talk to representatives of the insurance companies until you know your
rights. You need experienced legal representation to ensure that
you get the money you deserve. Call George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers

Q: How much is my case worth?
A: If you are not at
all responsible for your injury and the responsible party has the means
to compensate you, your case is worth what it would take to make you
whole again. You deserve to be compensated for your injury and
all the costs associated with getting you back on your feet.
Ultimately, your case is worth
whatever a jury says or would say it is worth. Insurance adjusters
know this, and it is their job to get you to settle the case for less
than it is worth. An experienced attorney knows how to negotiate
with the insurance companies to make sure you get the compensation you
deserve. Here at George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, we have helped

Q: What is involved in a personal injury case?
A: When you hire a personal injury lawyer in South Carolina to handle your personal injury case, you will have certain responsibilities
and your attorney will have certain responsibilities. Your responsibility
is to get the medical care you need and to avoid talking about your
case except to your attorney. The attorney’s responsibility
is to deal with the insurance companies and the medical providers to
get the best and fastest possible recovery for you. If you can’t
afford out-of-pocket expenses for medical treatment or if you don’t
have health insurance, an experienced attorney can help you get treatment.
Once you have recovered to
the maximum possible level, hopefully to where you were before the accident,
your attorney’s responsibility is to fight for you to get you the
money you deserve. Sometimes cases go to trial, but many times
an experienced attorney can get just as favorable of a recovery for
you without the time and expense of a trial. The goal is to get
you the money you deserve, fast! If you’ve been injured in South Carolina, you
need the help of an attorney who has helped thousands of people when
they needed it most. Call George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers today!
Q: What can I do to help my attorney win?
A: When you have been
injured, there are several important things you can do to help your
attorney win your case:
- Notify your attorney
of the accident as soon as possible. If you don’t have an attorney,
find one who has experience with the sort of problem that you have and
call the attorney as soon as possible after the accident. Don’t
talk to anyone from the insurance company, who will want to pay you
less than your claim is worth in exchange for you giving up all future
claims against them.
- Get the medical
care you need. Get treatment right away, and keep your follow-up
appointments until your doctor releases you. If you don’t know
where to go or how you are going to pay for treatment, a personal injury
attorney can help.
- Keep all documents
that relate to your case and give them to your attorney so they can
make copies, including things like medical records and bills, insurance
information, pay stubs, correspondence with your employer, pictures
of your car, and anything the police gives you.
After you have notified your
attorney right away, received the medical treatment you need, and avoided
speaking to the insurance company, then your attorney can take over
to get you the compensation you deserve. If you have been injured in South Carolina,
call George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers today to see if we can help you!
Q: What is a personal injury settlement?
A: There are two ways
to get the money you deserve: either after trial in an amount decided
by the judge or jury, or by settling the case with the other party.
In a settlement, you receive the compensation you consider fair in exchange
for a release of all legal claims against the other party. While
sometimes it is necessary to take a case to trial to enforce your rights,
sometimes a settlement is the better option.
If many issues in your case
are clear and there aren’t too many unusual factors, an attorney with
experience will know what is a fair settlement amount to compensate
you for your injuries. In those cases, settlements can be an effective
way to avoid the time and expense of litigation and get you the same
amount of money faster. An experienced South Carolina injury attorney will know
how much your case is worth, and will be able to tell you if settling
your case is the best option. If you have been injured, call George
Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers today to see if we can help you!
Q: What are personal injury damages?
A: Personal injury damages
compensate you for your injuries. When you are injured, you face
all sorts of costs outside of your normal budget to get you back on
your feet, such as visits to the hospital or doctor’s office, buying
medication recommended by the doctor, and transportation costs to get
you there. All of these extra costs are only made worse by the
fact that you are earning less because you have been missing work either
keeping your doctor’s appointments or staying home on doctor’s orders.
Your pain and suffering are also a very real part of your compensable
It is difficult to determine
precisely what “counts” as personal injury damages, a measure of
what the other party truly owes you, without the help of an experienced
attorney. An attorney with experience in personal injury cases
can also help you get the treatment you need if you can’t afford the
out-of-pocket expense. If you have been injured and want to make
sure you get the compensation you deserve, call George Sink, P.A. Injury
Q: What is a class
A: A class action lawsuit
is a lawsuit brought by many people who have all been injured in the
same way. These sorts of suits arise often in cases involving
defective drugs and medical devices or exposure to toxic substances,
where the wrongful act of a single actor harms hundreds or even thousands
of people. Because a class action enforces the rights of all people
who have been injured in the same way, you may be a part of a class
action lawsuit and not even know it!
If you have been injured by
a defective drug or medical device, or by exposure to a toxic substance
such as asbestos, you should consult with an attorney to find out what
remedies are available to you. Call George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers
