    I had to have surgery on my shoulder to repair two tears in my shoulder and my bicep anchor

    Ronald’s Answer

    There is no limit on the amount of judgment that you might be able to obtain against the at fault driver. Their insurance company will only have to pay their policy limits, although they could be exposed to additional liability if the engage in bad faith by unreasonably failing to settle the claim. Your own insurance coverage might include underinsured motorist coverage that would provide additional compensation for you. You should consult with a South Carolina automobile accident attorney. My firm and others provide this type of representation.

    Ronald’s Answer

    Please accept our condolences for your loss. No one can tell you for sure whether you have a valid claim without review of the relevant records, but the circumstances as you describe them certainly suggest that your claim warrants further investigation. Obtain all relevant records from the dialysis facility and the hospital so that a qualified medical malpractice attorney can arrange for them to be reviewed by a physician who can determine whether the care provided fell below accepted medical standards. Our firm and others on AVVO are available to consult with you to discuss your claim. You should act quickly to obtain the records and obtain a consultation with an attorney.

    Ronald’s Answer

    The property damage claim is separate from the personal injury claim. The property damage cannot be claimed again in the injury claim. However, you should consider whether you were paid a proper amount for the property damage claim, including loss of use of your vehicle and depreciation. A substantial impact that results in significant property damage often results in a significant injury claim as well. You should consult a personal injury attorney prior to accepting any settlement of your injury claim.
