At Price Petho & Associates, we recognize those who have been injured due to the negligence of someone else are likely facing a difficult financial situation. One of the main concerns that any injury victim has is how they will be able to afford an attorney to help their case.

According to N.C. Gen. Stat. section 1-52 the statute of limitations on personal injury cases is three years. This means you have three years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to obtain compensation. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may qualify for an extension to the statute of limitations. An attorney from our firm can let you know how the statute of limitations can affect your case.
There are three main types of damages available in a personal injury case, economic, non-economic and punitive. The first two are called “compensatory damages” since their main purpose is the compensate the injured party for their losses associated with suffering an injury. Economic damages, as the name suggests compensate the injured party for financial losses related to their injuries such as the inability to work and medical expenses. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensate for more intangible losses such as pain and suffering and mental anguish. Punitive damage differs from the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party. As such punitive damages can be quite severe and are not often awarded.
