Personal Injury Lawyers in North Carolina 

No one ever wants to consider the possibility that one day, they may be injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. However, individuals suffer personal injuries every day due to another person’s negligent actions or inactions.

In many instances, the accident victim and their family are left to deal with unanticipated medical expenses that may be challenging to pay, even with insurance coverage. Additionally, because they cannot work, injury victims may quickly experience a financial crisis due to their loss of income and be forced to deal with emotional distress.

If you have been injured through someone else’s fault, you must hire an experienced personal injury attorney who can advise you of your legal rights and work to recover compensation on your behalf. Contact Brent Adams & Associates of North Carolina and ask to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.


What Are the Benefits of Hiring a North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer to Help Me Recover Compensation?

Most individuals who have been injured are unfamiliar with the insurance claims process and what it may entail. Some people make the mistake of trying to handle their claims on their own only to realize the legal process is more complicated than they initially believed.

For this reason, obtaining experienced legal counsel who can assist you with the claims process is always in your best interests. A lawyer can thoroughly review your claim to ensure the confusing paperwork is filled out correctly and submitted promptly.

Additionally, having an attorney on your side can ensure that you collect all of the damages you may be entitled to receive. For example, if you suffer from permanent injuries, you most likely will require lifelong medical care that can quickly become cost-prohibitive. However, a personal injury lawyer has the skills to negotiate a settlement that adequately provides for your current and future needs.

If you or a loved one has sustained serious injuries, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury settlement to reimburse you for damages. However, an insurer often tries to delay, undervalue, or deny claims to protect their bottom line. In some cases, they may try to assign some degree of liability to the victim to avoid paying a large claim.

Most individuals need to be made aware that the majority of personal injury cases are settled outside of the courtroom without the need for expensive litigation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still file a personal injury claim if I only have minor injuries?

If you have suffered injuries and damages in a personal injury case, you have the right to file a claim. Many individuals initially believe that they do not have to hire an attorney to file what they consider to be a small claim. However, with North Carolina’s strict contributory negligence laws, individuals often find it harder to recover compensation than they initially believed. However, if the other party has been negligent in their duty to use reasonable care, you may be able to recover some compensation to cover your costs and other expenses.

Does North Carolina allow personal injury victims to recover punitive damages?

North Carolina law does allow individuals to recover punitive damages if their personal injury case meets specific legal criteria. Economic and non-economic damages, also called compensatory damages, are granted to try, and make the victim “whole” after being injured in an accident. However, punitive damages are meant to punish wrongdoers and warn others not to repeat the same behavior. Punitive damages are only granted when the plaintiff can demonstrate that malice, fraud, or willful or wanton conduct occurred. Punitive damages cannot exceed three times the compensatory damages or $250,000.

How long does it take to settle a personal injury claim in North Carolina?

In North Carolina, most personal injury cases are settled out of court through negotiations between the insurance company and the victim’s attorney. Most claims are generally settled within 6 to 14 months after the insurance provider has received the claim, also called the demand package. However, if the insurance provider does not offer a settlement for what the claim is worth or is unwilling to negotiate. In instances where a settlement cannot be reached, the case will have to go to trial. Any case that goes to trial must go through the court system, which can take significant time to complete.

What is the statute of limitations in North Carolina on filing a personal injury claim?

North Carolina law injury victims have three years to file a claim. Although three years may seem like a long time, life often gets in the way, and individuals neglect to follow through. Evidence often disappears, and witnesses’ memories fade or move away. Furthermore, a personal injury lawyer will need sufficient time to investigate the case. If you fail to file a claim in time, the court will refuse to hear the case. At that point, you will lose all legal recourse and will lose out on any compensation you may be rightfully entitled to recover.

How can I win a personal injury case?

To win a personal injury case, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant acted in a negligent or reckless manner. The plaintiff must also prove that the other party’s actions or inactions led to them being injured. However, one of the major challenges to any personal injury claim is that North Carolina subscribes to pure contributory negligence laws. Pure contributory negligence laws stipulate that if one of the parties involved in the accident is even one percent at fault for the accident, they will be ineligible to recover any financial compensation.

When should I hire a personal injury lawyer?

Many personal injury victims make the mistake of waiting to hire a lawyer after an accident. However, anyone injured due to someone else’s negligence must immediately hire a skilled attorney. Time is always of the essence in personal injury cases, as evidence can quickly disappear, and witnesses can become difficult to locate. Hiring a lawyer as soon as possible can give your legal counsel time to investigate the case and determine the best legal strategy. Furthermore, a lawyer can handle all the negotiations with the insurance company on your behalf.

Can I be fired from my job while on workers’ comp in North Carolina?

There is a common misconception that individuals cannot be fired by their employer if they receive workers’ comp benefits. However, this information is incorrect, as employers have the legal right to terminate an employee if they have been accused of gross misconduct in the workplace or if it is determined they caused their injury. Nevertheless, injured workers receiving workers’ comp benefits who have been fired from a job should consult with a knowledgeable attorney who can evaluate the case and ensure that the employer is not trying to retaliate against them.

Can a pedestrian be found at fault for an accident?

Unlike other states, a pedestrian who has been involved in an accident can be found at fault for an accident. Even though most individuals assume that the vehicle’s driver will be deemed at fault, this is not always the case. Just as a motorist has a legal responsibility to operate their vehicle safely, a pedestrian also has an obligation to practice safety. However, if you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you must seek legal representation immediately to protect your rights. A qualified attorney can help determine your legal options and if you can receive compensation for your injuries.
