Building Support for Your Car Accident Claim
In order to pursue compensation for your losses, we must establish fault for your car accident. In some cases, it is not difficult to determine fault. For example, a distracted driver who hits you from behind while he or she is texting is at fault for causing a rear-end collision.
Sometimes fault is disputed, but many times we can help you prove who was at fault even in complicated cases such as accidents involving multiple vehicles. At George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, we use our resources to establish liability so you can pursue compensation for a Lexington, SC, accident.
We Collect Evidence to Support Your Car Accident Injury Claim
We secure evidence that shows how your crash occurred and identifies the responsible driver. In some cases, a police report may state which driver is at fault for a car wreck. However, we will not depend solely on a police report to build your case.
During our investigation of your car accident, we will secure evidence that connects your injuries to the crash. The information we collect may include the following:
- Your medical records
- Photographs of your injuries
- Photographs of the accident scene
- Video footage from a traffic or surveillance camera
- Eyewitness statements
Your personal injury lawyer may also use reports and testimony from accident reconstruction specialists, expert medical witnesses, and other professionals.

Filing a Car Accident Injury Case
Once we collect evidence and identify the liable party, we can file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company to pursue compensation for your damages.
When we file a claim, we let the insurer know that the negligent or careless actions of its policyholder or covered driver caused an accident and you sustained damages as a result.
It is common practice for insurers to question injury claims. So, as your legal representative, we can field questions from claims adjusters and limit the amount of contact you have with insurers. In fact, we will communicate on your behalf with all parties involved in the car accident, including their lawyers.
Filing an Uninsured Motorist Claim
If the at-fault party does not have auto insurance, you may be able to use your uninsured motorist (UM) coverage and file a claim with your own insurer.
If the driver has insurance but not enough to cover all of your losses, you may be able to use your underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage (if you have it on your policy) to cover your remaining damages.
We can work with your insurer to make sure your UM/UIM benefits cover your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If you need help filing either a UM or UIM insurance claim after your car accident, call a car accident lawyer serving Lexington, SC at 888-612-7001.
Recoverable Damages Available in a Car Accident Claim
After investigating your car accident, we can better determine the type of damages you suffered and estimate the value of your claim. This value includes the financial expenses and non-economic losses incurred because of your car accident.
Some of the most common damages recoverable in car accident cases include:
Medical expenses include hospital stays, surgeries, doctor visits, physical therapy, inpatient rehabilitation, prescription medication, and more.
Lost wages include the income, bonuses, commissions, and other earnings you lost while recovering from your car accident.
Pain and Suffering
This includes the physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish that you suffered because of the car accident.
Beginning the Negotiation Process for Your Car Accident Case
Our goal is to negotiate a fair settlement that covers your damages. We aim for the best possible outcome during the negotiation process. However, there are times when an insurer denies a claim or refuses to offer a settlement that will help our client.
Should an insurer deny your claim or refuse to offer a fair settlement, we may file a personal injury lawsuit. If this happens, your car accident lawyer will help you through the litigation process that will ultimately resolve the case.
