Collecting Evidence To Support Your Injury Accident Claim
A key factor in our investigation is determining who is at fault for your car accident. Establishing fault is important; the person who causes a car accident is responsible for paying the damages resulting from the crash.
During our investigation, we secure evidence to determine how the crash happened, who was at fault, and who to hold liable for your damages.
The evidence we collect may include:
- Your medical records to show the nature and extent of your injuries
- Photographs of the crash site
- Photographs of your injuries
- A police report
- Video footage from a traffic camera or nearby surveillance camera
- Eyewitness statements
Depending on the circumstances of the accident, we may enlist the help of an accident reconstruction specialist. A reconstruction expert will visit or review photographs of the crash site and use other documents to determine cause or liability for the crash.
Some of the types of accident cases we handle include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Wrongful death cases
At George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, we use our varied resources to build a case to withstand the scrutiny of insurance companies, insurance defense lawyers, and juries.
Dealing with Government Entities in a Car Accident Case
Some car accidents involve employees who work for government agencies. South Carolina has a special procedure for pursuing compensation against government entities.
This process adds extra layers to a car injury accident case. However, our firm has been taking on complicated personal injury cases for over four decades.1 We know what it takes to file a claim against a government agency.
We work hard to overcome any obstacles that could prevent you from getting compensation for your damages.
If your accident involves a government agency and you are not sure how to proceed with a claim, contact a car accident lawyer serving North Myrtle Beach, SC today at (888) 612-7001.

Holding the At-Fault Party Liable for Your Car Accident Damages
Whether the at-fault party is an individual or a government agency, the evidence we collect must show how the other party’s negligence caused the car accident.
Motorists in North Myrtle Beach have a duty to drive carefully to avoid causing harm to other drivers. Our evidence will show how the driver who caused your accident violated that responsibility and, because of that driver’s negligence, you suffered medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Coming Under Scrutiny of an Insurance Company
Although we prepare a strong case, we anticipate questions from auto insurance companies about our claims. Auto insurers want to save money, and one way of doing so is to reject a claim or minimize the value of a claim by offering a low settlement.
Do not be alarmed if an insurance adjuster attempts to place partial blame on you for causing the accident and contributing to your injury. Fortunately, we know the strategies and tactics insurers use to devalue a claim. We will fight an insurer’s contentions with a solid and well-documented case.
Calculating the Value of Your Claim
Our investigation will help determine the amount of compensation to pursue on your behalf. We will file and negotiate your claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company.
Some of the most common damages involved in an injury accident include:
Medical expenses include costs for ambulance transportation, emergency room treatment, hospital stays, surgeries, physical therapy, rehabilitation, prescription medication, and more.
Lost wages include the income you lost because your injury prevented you from working. Depending on the type of injury you suffered, you may not have the ability to work as you did before the accident: your diminished capacity may reduce your wages or your ability to work at all.
Pain and suffering
Pain and suffering includes the physical pain and mental anguish you suffered because of your car accident.
If you have questions about the types of damages you can pursue in a car accident case, call a car accident lawyer serving North Myrtle Beach, SC today at (888) 612-7001.
