Please call us for a free, no-obligation case evaluation if you were injured in any of the following situations:

Your Time to File a Lawsuit May Be Limited
One of the most crucial parts of any personal injury case is how long ago the accident happened. This will provide a framework for how long you have to act under the state’s statute of limitations. Under §1-52, North Carolina imposes a three-year time limit for personal injury cases.
Depending on the details of your situation, you may not have a long time to act. If you do not act within the state’s guidelines, you will likely jeopardize your right to compensation through the court system.
We cannot emphasize how important this deadline is to your case. After you have sought initial treatment for your injuries, we encourage you to give Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, a call. Members of our team are standing by to hear from you. Give us a call today at (828) 286-3866.
We Will Build a Case to Prove the Other Party’s Liability
In our years practicing personal injury law in both North and South Carolina, we have won settlements for many clients––victims of a wide array of injuries involving a broad spectrum of circumstances.
But what all personal injury cases have in common is that we must prove four elements in order to have a chance of recovering compensation.
For your case to be successful, we must collect evidence that demonstrates:
- The responsible party or parties owed you a specific duty of care.
- They violated their duty of care, either through negligence, carelessness, or maliciousness.
- Because they failed to uphold their duty of care, you suffered injuries as a direct result.
- You incurred economic and noneconomic losses from your injuries.
While you are recovering from your injuries, you may be curious to know if there is anything you can do to help your legal team establish negligence. One measure that can prove beneficial to your case is keeping all documents relating to your medical care, property damage, and other related losses. These items could be medical bills, receipts, or pay stubs.
You cannot sue another party on the basis of pain and suffering alone. You must provide other details relevant to your situation that establish financial losses.
We Help You Recover Fair Compensation for Your Damages
Many claimants ask us how much they can expect to receive for damages related to pain and suffering. Typically, the more severe your injuries, the more you can expect to receive for noneconomic damages subject to certain exceptions.
If your case is successful, you may be able to pursue the cost of:
- Both current and anticipated medical bills
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
You may be able to seek the cost of items that we have not listed here. A Lincolnton personal injury lawyer can review the details of your case and determine what losses you may be able to recover through litigation.
