Damages Our Personal Injury Team Requests for You
A car accident that left you with physical injuries and property damage can entitle you to recover economic and noneconomic damages. Our team members will explain each category of damages and help you request both. Economic damages will include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Current and future losses of income
- Vehicle towing, repair, or replacement
- Treatment-related travel costs
- In-home medical and domestic support
We also seek coverage of the funeral and burial expenses for a loved one who did not survive the collision.
You Can Also Seek Noneconomic Damages
In addition, you are entitled to certain noneconomic damages. These are intangible and can be more difficult to quantify on your own. Noneconomic damages include physical pain and suffering, mental and emotional anguish, and lasting disability or disfigurement.
We support your compensation request with evidence such as your car accident report, medical records and bills, witness statements, and accident scene photos. We also collect your paycheck stubs, tax records, and other financial data to prove the amount of income you lost because of your injuries and recovery time.

Do Not Delay Your Compensation Request
When you seek damages from the at-fault party, you can resolve your case with either an insurance settlement or a trial. While our goal is to settle your claim out of court, we will file your lawsuit in accordance with the statute of limitations to ensure you can go to court if needed. In North Carolina:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years, according to G.S. § 1-52
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is generally two years, according to G.S. § 1-53
We will explain the statute of limitations that applies to your case and the importance of filing your lawsuit on time. We will also take care of the filing details for you to protect your right to go to court if we cannot settle your claim. If your case does go to court for resolution, we also explain the trial process step by step.

Our Team Tracks Your Injuries and Treatment Costs
An important part of building your evidence file is gathering your medical records. Pulling your medical records and bills together can be time-consuming since every department, physician, and facility might have separate billing. Our team will compile records and bills for your:
- Ambulance ride
- Emergency room visit
- Hospital admissions
- Physical and occupational therapy sessions
- Prescription medications
We will request a copy of your written prognosis to help us calculate your future medical costs. We also request receipts for any assistive medical devices like crutches or a specialized hospital bed for your home. We add this evidence to your case file to prove the costs of the accident.
