How North Carolina personal injury law allows you to recover

Personal injury is the area of civil (rather than criminal) law that allows individuals to recover monetary compensation from others who acted negligently (absence of ordinary care) to harm them. Personal injury law governs a range of injury scenarios, including:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Dangerous premises
  • Defective products
  • Tractor-Trailer Accidents
  • Traumatic Brian Injuries
  • Medical malpractice
  • Slip-and-Fall Accidents
  • Dog Bites

To have a claim for personal injury, you must prove that a person who had a duty to treat you with care violated that duty and in so doing caused harm to you. If you prove those points, the defendant is determined to be liable (the civil law version of guilty) and must pay you damages — that is, reasonable compensation for the harm you suffered. What is reasonable is up to a judge or jury to decide, but damages are divided into two main categories:

  • Economic losses — Medical bills, past and future; lost earnings, past and future, etc.
  • Noneconomic losses — Compensation for pain and suffering, lost quality of life, scarring etc.

Our attorneys can help you determine whether you have a viable claim, and provide you with additional state-specific information related to:

Personal injury law is often a very common sense area of the law, but there are complex wrinkles that require professional knowledge. But most importantly, it’s extremely difficult — if not impossible — to get full compensation for your injuries from an insurance company without the able assistance of an experienced attorney.
