What is the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits in North Carolina?

There are timeframes within which your claims must be filed or the right to file them is lost forever. The deadlines within which you must file your particular claims is determined by the facts in your case and North Carolina law. It is important that you contact a lawyer immediately to represent you and advise you of this deadline, so that you ensure you meet it.

How much compensation may I receive for a personal injury claim in North Carolina?

When establishing the worth of your personal injury lawsuit, numerous elements must be considered. Here are some important considerations:

  • Your Economic Damages - These include medical expenses, income loss, alterations to your cost of living, and future medical bills.
  • Pain and Suffering - This refers to the emotional suffering produced by the accident, including anxiety, despair, tension, fear, rage, shame, humiliation, and frustration, among others.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life - In addition to financial losses, accidents frequently cause a loss of enjoyment of life. This could consist of hobbies, travel plans, social activities, etc.
  • Permanent Injury - A severe injury may result in permanent physical or mental harm. You may experience persistent pain, memory issues, psychological trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc.
  • Death - If someone dies as a result of the accident, it is termed a wrongful death lawsuit, and the surviving family members can obtain damages for their loss and suffering.
  • Additional Factors - Additional factors can impact the final worth of your case. Examples include whether or not the defendant was careless and whether or not the defendant had sufficient liability coverage to cover your full claim.

Are There Caps Or Limits On Damages In North Carolina Injury Claims?

In North Carolina, there are caps on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases, but not in other types of cases. That said, there are also exceptions to those caps, which is why it is important to contact an attorney to review the facts of your particular case and to advise you on whether caps will apply.

Frequent Causes of Personal Injury Cases in North Carolina

Automobile collisions are one of the leading causes of personal injury claims. In reality, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there are over 40 million motor vehicle accidents annually. These accidents result in severe injuries such as bone fractures, spinal cord damage, head trauma, brain damage, internal organ damage, paralysis and death. If you or a loved one were involved in such an event, it is essential to understand what kind of damages you may be able to recover.

Personal injury claims can include claims related to medical malpractice claims and premises liability claims. An expert personal injury attorney can help you understand how these various sorts of cases operate and what legal choices are available to you under North Carolina law.

Medical negligence occurs when a health care provider fails to provide a patient with proper care. This can occur for a variety of causes, such as failing to timely deliver a baby, failure to diagnose a condition, injuring a patient through improper treatment or performing unnecessary surgery. 

Medical malpractice actions in North Carolina are subject to stringent regulations. To successfully sue a medical professional, you must demonstrate that the health care provider breached particular standards of care and that his or her acts caused you substantial physical harm.

A premises liability claim occurs when you fall or have another injury on someone else’s property. Under these circumstances, if you are not at fault, you may have a claim for damages. In these cases, it may not only be the owner of the property who is at fault. It is important to hire counsel to make sure that you request damages from the proper individuals or entities.

If you suspect you have been the victim of medical negligence, please call us immediately so that we can discuss your legal options. Call now to speak with an expert and take advantage of our free consultations.

Contributory Negligence. What Is It, And How Can It Affect My Personal Injury Claim?

Under North Carolina law, If you are at fault in even the most minor of ways for your accident (or contributorily negligent), you are barred from recovery. This is why it is important to retain counsel immediately with regard to your personal injury claim. Our attorneys can help you prove the true facts of your injury. We provide free consultations for catastrophic incidents.
