Personal Injury Claims. Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages.
The term “personal injury” refers to an area of the law that lets you get a legal remedy for all losses stemming from an accident or other incident where someone else’s carelessness or intentional conduct caused you to be injured.
In a personal injury case, if you’ve suffered an injury, property damage, or any other kind of loss, as the plaintiff you may seek compensation from whoever caused or contributed to those losses. The legal term for this kind of compensation is “damages”.
If your insurance claim stalls or settlement negotiations break down, you can always get the personal injury lawsuit process started by filing your complaint in the local branch of your state’s civil court. One key law to keep in mind is the personal injury statute of limitations in North Carolina.
Insurance companies typically multiply the amount of medical bills by a number between one and five to calculate “pain and suffering.” The more severe and permanent the injury, the higher the multiplier. You, or your attorney, will need to use your best judgment in estimating your pain and suffering.
If you’re negotiating a personal injury claim with an insurance company, the adjuster is the one you’ll be dealing with. It may be helpful to understand how he or she operates before you make your written demand, and certainly before you accept (or reject and counter) a settlement offer.
This wasn’t my first attorney. But the one at North Carolina Personal Injury was the first to take my case seriously. All my questions were answered and after waiting so long with the other lawyer, it turns out my case didn’t even have to go to court. It was settled in months. That’s the largest reason to look around. A friend eventually referred me to North Carolina Personal Injury. Wish I had called them first. Thank you so much, guys.
