Understanding Your Rights After an Accident
Under North Carolina personal injury law, you have the right to seek financial compensation for economic and non-economic damages incurred due to an accident or injuries caused by someone else’s negligent or wrongful conduct. In other words, if someone else acted carelessly or unlawfully and you were hurt as a result, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your losses.
You could have a case if you were injured or lost a loved one due to a:
Distracted driving accident
Drunk driving accident
Hit and run
Recreational vehicle (RV) accident
Work-related accident or injury
If you believe someone else was at fault for the accident, or if you were hurt on the job, reach out to our legal team today to learn how we can help. Our firm is committed to maximizing your recovery; we are ready to fight for every penny you are owed.
Damages in Your Personal Injury Case
While a personal injury or wrongful death claim cannot undo the accident or bring back your loved one, it can allow you to obtain the critical financial resources you need to heal. It can also provide a sense of justice and send a message that such negligent or wrongful actions will not be tolerated.
The exact damages you may be able to recover in the wake of the accident depend on several factors, including the severity of your injuries, the amount of time you have to take off work to recover, whether you are permanently disabled, the degree of your pain and suffering, and more.
At David & Associates, Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we fight to help our clients recover the maximum compensation they are owed for both economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Ambulance and hospital fees
- Ongoing and future medical care
- Rehabilitation therapy
- Counseling services
- In-home care
- Lost income/wages
- Lost earning capacity due to disability
- Lost future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Lost quality of life
- Property damage repairs
In cases involving egregious negligence or willful or wanton disregard for human life, we may be able to seek punitive damages. Unlike the compensatory damages listed above, which are meant to compensate the victim for his or her losses, punitive damages are intended to punish the at-fault party and help ensure that similar acts do not occur again in the future.
