Causes of Personal Injuries
The most common way that someone becomes injured is through the negligent, reckless, and careless action or inaction of another party. This may be an individual person, group of people, a company, or a governmental entity. Someone’s the bad judgment or lack of care for human life can lead to what amounts to a lifetime of pain and suffering for the victim in a personal injury case. Sometimes victims are just in the wrong spot at the wrong time. Regardless, if you are now dealing with the consequences of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to hold them accountable for their actions as a result of:
Seeking Compensation for Personal Injury Claims
The facts in your case determine for the most part the damages that you may be eligible to collect from the at-fault party and/or the insurer in the case. Typically, reimbursement for damages includes a mix of medical costs, lost income, property damage, future costs of medical care, and diminished capacity to earn a living. As a victim, it is also possible for you to collect monetary compensation for mental and physical pain and suffering, and if you have experienced injuries that are serious enough to leave you permanently disabled or disfigured, your collectible damages may be even greater.
Personal Injury Claims: Time is of the Essence
The civil statute of limitations for personal injury claims in the state of North Carolina is three years after the discovery of the injury in most cases. This means that the clock begins to tick on the time you have to file your claim from the moment you discover you are injured. If you fail to act in that timeframe, then you lose your ability to file a claim (although there are very strict exceptions to this rule). Because of this, it is important to avoid waiting to file a claim in your personal injury case.
