Recoverable Damages in a Successful Case

You may be facing significant financial strain because of your accident.

If your case is successful, you may be able to recover the cost of:

  • Medical expenses, such as corrective procedures or emergency care
  • Rehabilitative treatment, including physical therapy and mental health counseling
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Impaired quality of life
  • Psychological distress

Your losses will be divided into items that have a tangible economic value and those that apply more to the emotional aspect of your losses. North Carolina has a statutory cap on the amount of damages you can collect following a personal injury case in only very specific circumstances.

A Spindale personal injury lawyer can sit down with you, discuss your legal options, and implement a plan of action for moving forward. To start your free case review with a member of our team, call Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC at (828) 286-3866.

A Spindale Personal Injury Lawyer Must Prove Negligence

The outcome of your case will essentially rest on your lawyer’s ability to prove that the party responsible for your injuries acted negligently. North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, which means, you cannot be at fault in the accident if you want to recover compensation from the other party for your injuries.

For your case to be successful and get you the compensation you need, your legal team must establish:

  • The liable party had a duty of care to take reasonable actions that would not harm others
  • The liable party, for whatever reason, violated this duty by their actions or inaction
  • The liable party contributed to an accident in which you were injured
  • You have suffered economic damages stemming from your injuries, inability to work, and other circumstances, all related to the accident

Your Spindale personal injury lawyer will need to investigate the circumstances of your case and collect evidence to establish fault.

Steps to Take After You Have Been Injured

While your lawyer gets to work advocating on your behalf, there are certain measures you can take to promote your case’s success. The following steps do not guarantee compensation; however, in the long run, they can work to your advantage.

They include:

Seeking Prompt Medical Attention

After an accident, your physical health should be among your top priorities. While visiting with a medical professional, you should keep all documents relating to your care, including imaging scans, lab results, and prescribed medications.

If you do not seek medical attention following your accident, the other party could argue that:

  • Your injuries were not caused by the accident in question
  • You aggravated your injuries by not seeking medical attention
  • Your injuries have not affected your quality of life to the extent that you claim

If you were injured while on the job, you may have a limited time to seek treatment or else risk jeopardizing your claim. When you call Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we can explain in further detail what this could mean to your individual situation.

Not Speaking to Insurance Companies Without a Lawyer

You will likely be contacted by the involved insurance companies offering you a fast settlement following your accident. This is designed to keep you from pursuing litigation. Many times, insurance companies will purposefully offer you a settlement that does not cover the cost of your damages, hoping that you do not know the exact value of your losses.

When you work with a Spindale personal injury lawyer, they can examine the scope of both your economic and noneconomic damages and then negotiate for an appropriate settlement offer. If the insurance company does not agree to these terms, then your legal team can potentially take your case further to court.

Acting Within the State’s Statute of Limitations

In North Carolina, under §1-52, you generally have three years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. We encourage you to act quickly; our team wants to give your case the attention to detail that it needs.
