South Carolina & Georgia Personal Injury Lawyer FAQ
Do I need a lawyer?
A personal injury lawyer is experienced in building a case, negotiating your claim with the insurance company, and taking your case to trial. Even though it is possible to negotiate your personal injury claim on your own, insurance companies can take advantage of you if you do not have a lawyer present. Remember the insurance companies will try to get you to agree to the lowest settlement as quickly as possible.
How much will it cost me to hire a lawyer?
Personal Injury lawyers will take the case on a contingency basis, which means that they will receive a percentage of the award if you win your case. So, that means you will not have to pay any money up front. These contingency fees are usually around 33 1/3 percent, but could be higher if your case has to go to trial. If you and your lawyer agree on a contingency fee, the agreement must be in writing, and your lawyer should provide a signed copy. Many firms will not charge you anything if they do not recover compensation for you, but it can vary from firm to firm*.
Will I have to go to court?
Personal injury cases are usually settled out of court. If the party that you are trying to prove a personal injury claim against believes that they weren’t at fault, the compensation claim could go to court. In this situation, you might be called to court to tell your side of the story to the judge or jury. You also might have to go to court if the personal injury claim of liability is acknowledged, but the parties can’t agree on compensation. However, an experienced personal injury attorney can guide you through each step of the process and help you determine what is best for you and your family.
What would a lawyer do for me?
If you have been injured, working with an experienced attorney may improve your chances of receiving full and fair compensation to cover both economic and non-economic damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. At George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, we work hard to ensure that we protect the best interests of our clients by gathering evidence and submitting claims in a timely manner. Our goal is to handle the insurance company so that you don’t have to, and bring you the money you need as quickly as possible.

The insurance company says they will take care of everything. So, I don’t have to worry, right?
Wrong. Don’t forget that the at-fault driver’s insurance company wants to solve the case as quickly as possible for as little as possible. The insurance company may not consider the long term effects of your personal injuries and their settlement may not fully cover the costs of your injuries. An experienced lawyer from George Sink P.A. Injury Lawyers will help you determine your benefits and compensation.
