Motor Vehicle Accidental Injury Claims

In North Carolina, you have three years from the date of the initial motor vehicle accident to file a lawsuit to recover damages related to any injuries and property losses. However, in order to do so, you must also be able to show that the other party was responsible for the collision. This includes providing evidence proving their negligent behavior. 

The following are some of the leading causes of car accidents: 

  • Disregarding traffic signals, stop signs, or yield signs
  • Failure to reduce speed
  • Failure to yield to the right of way
  • General recklessness or carelessness
  • Improper lane changes
  • Improper turns
  • Intoxication Driver distraction (texting, adjusting the radio or navigation, etc.)
  • Speeding 

Recoverable Damages in North Carolina Car Crashes

Ultimately, if you have been injured in an auto accident it is important to consult with an experienced attorney sooner rather than later. Insurance companies may try to pressure you to settle before you make a full recovery and determine the extent of the damages that you are eligible for. 

Injuries can be extremely painful, costly, emotional, and lasting. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may require surgeries, ongoing medical care, and physical therapy. Furthermore, your injuries might require you to take time off work, change positions, or find new jobs entirely. This can lead to less pay and earning potential. All these expenses are in addition to the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle. 

Victims may also be entitled to punitive damages if the responsible party had engaged in particularly reckless behavior, intentional misconduct, or some other form of extreme negligence. Punitive damages are commonly pursued in driving while intoxicated (DWI) cases. 

Depending on your situation, recoverable damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damages (car repair or replacement)
  • Lost wages (including potential earnings)
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium (the loss of companionship or affection)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
