Tell Us About Your Car Accident
We want to know the details about your car accident, so we can conduct a thorough investigation of the crash. Building a solid case for you requires us to identify the parties involved in the crash, the cause of the crash, and which party to hold liable for your accident.
In accidents involving more than one negligent driver, you may be entitled to file multiple insurance claims to cover all your damages.
In an accident with multiple negligent drivers, if we find that one driver does not have auto insurance, or a driver has insurance but not enough to pay for your damages, you may be able to recover your remaining compensation with another at-fault driver’s auto insurer.
At George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, we cover all the bases so you can get compensated for all your accident-related losses.

Collecting Evidence in Your Car Accident Case
We use all our experience and resources to collect evidence showing how the at-fault driver’s negligence caused an accident in which you suffered damages. The evidence we collect may include:
A police report
This document serves as an official record of your car accident. The report contains a narrative of the crash and identifies all parties involved in the accident. Insurance companies like to review police reports prior to making decisions about settling claims.
Your medical documents provide proof of your crash-related injuries. The severity of your injuries also plays a role when we calculate your financial losses.
Photographs of the accident scene
Photographs provide proof of damaged cars, bodily injuries, and possibly the cause of a crash.
People who witnessed the crash can testify to how the accident happened and possibly which driver caused the accident.
Video footage of the accident
Traffic cameras mounted at intersections and surveillance cameras at nearby businesses may capture accidents. Video can also provide proof of cause and fault for a car crash.
When necessary, we work with an accident reconstruction specialist who can determine cause and liability for a car accident. We include the specialist’s report as evidence.
We know what it takes to build a strong claim. To learn more about the type of evidence we collect during our investigation, call a car accident lawyer who handles cases in Walterboro, SC at 843-306-0009.
Common Causes for Car Accidents
Drivers have a legal responsibility to take reasonable care in operating their vehicles. Unfortunately, drivers who violate this duty can cause an accident. Our investigations find that car accidents happen when drivers are:
- Texting and driving
- Talking on the phone
- Driving while drowsy
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Ignoring traffic signals or road signs
When drivers’ negligent actions cause accidents, other drivers, passengers, truck drivers and motorcyclists suffer physical injuries, wrecked vehicles, and other damages.

Recoverable Damages in a Car Accident
Car accidents can cause physical injuries ranging from a soft tissue injury (like whiplash) to a spinal cord injury resulting in partial or complete paralysis.
If you were injured in the car accident, the responsible insurance company takes the severity of your injury and your medical expenses into consideration when estimating the value of your claim. The more severe your injury, the more compensation we pursue for your present and future medical needs and other losses.
After determining your losses, we can help you recover compensation for damages, including:
- Medical bills
- Inpatient rehabilitation
- Physical therapy
- Medical mobility devices
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Car repair or replacement
We also help you seek compensation for nonfinancial damages such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Scarring and disfigurement (from burns, cuts, abrasions, contusions, or loss of a limb)

We take the stress out of the claim settlement process, so you can spend your time recovering.
Although we usually settle an insurance claim out of court, there are times when an insurer rejects a claim or refuses to settle for a fair amount. When this happens, we may file a personal injury lawsuit to settle the issue in court. We will discuss this in detail should we file a lawsuit.
