Our Lawyers Prove Liability in Catastrophic Injury Cases So You Do Not Have to
Our lawyers must prove that the injury you suffered was directly caused by the careless or negligent actions of another party. Additionally, these actions could have been reasonably prevented.
This action could apply to a specific person, like a negligent motorist, property owner, landlord, doctor, or worker. In addition, depending on the situation, businesses, governmental bodies, and even the city itself may be held accountable.
A successful case will often involve questioning witnesses, analyzing the accident scene, collecting evidence, and sometimes even taking liable parties to court. When hiring a catastrophic injury lawyer from our firm, all of the aforementioned responsibilities become ours. You can sit back and focus on recovery; let us handle the legal side.
Our Gaston County Injury Lawyers Can Review Your Case for Possible Compensation
It can be confusing to figure out what the true value of your settlement is. Settling for a value below your case’s worth could result in you being short of what you need for your recovery, and you are stuck paying for everything not covered by the settlement. Each case will vary in circumstance, but in the majority of personal injury cases, you can expect eligibility for some or all of the following damages.
- Medical bills & physical therapy
- Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
- Emotional damage
- Pain and suffering
Damages such as medical bills and property damage may make up the bulk of your settlement due to the seriousness of your injuries. Compensation for medical treatment will depend on the severity of your injuries and how expensive it will be to treat them, as well as how they will impact you and your life moving forward.
In the case of catastrophic injury, most claimants will be entitled to a substantial amount in recovery, especially in the case of permanent physical disabilities resulting from the accident. As an injured claimant, we do not expect you to determine this amount on your own. Our lawyers will examine your expenses directly tied to the accident to help you determine an amount that is just and fair.
North Carolina Negligence Laws Can Affect Your Catastrophic Injury Case
North Carolina is one of four states where injury cases operate under contributory negligence. What contributory negligence means is that if a victim is seeking compensation and has been found to bear any responsibility for their accident, even as little as one percent, they may not collect compensation.
Liable parties and their insurers may try to place partial blame on you as a way to avoid paying damages. To protect yourself, you will need to fight their claims with evidence to the contrary. Our firm will use the resources at our disposal to investigate your accident and protect your right to a fair and just settlement by your case’s conclusion.
Be Aware of the Statutes of Limitations for Your Catastrophic Injury Case
Those seeking to file for their catastrophic injury in North Carolina have up to three years after their accident before they are no longer eligible for financial compensation, per the statute of limitations outlined in N.C. Gen. Stat. §1-52.
It is almost always more beneficial to file your lawsuit as soon as possible to protect your right to compensation. The financial demands for treating your injury will be immediate, unexpected, and costly, and you have the right to hold the other party responsible.
If the stress of litigation is what deters you from filing, rest easy and speak with us. We can handle filing your case. We want to see your case resolved as quickly as we can.
