What Compensation am I Entitled To?
If you have been injured because of someone else’s actions, you have the right to pursue financial relief in a personal injury lawsuit. Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive a settlement for various damages.
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Punitive damages
You may be able to receive compensation for all past, present, and expected future medical bills. Furthermore, you may be entitled to non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant, and are only awarded in cases when the defendant acted with egregious behavior or gross negligence. For example, if you were hit by a drunk driver, you may be able to receive punitive damages.
Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in North Carolina
If you have been injured, you only have a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit. This is known as the statute of limitations. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 3 years, and the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is 2 years. If you wait too long and miss the deadline, your claim will likely be denied, and you may be unable to pursue compensation.
