Who Is Eligible to File a Personal Injury Claim in North Carolina?

In most cases, whether or not you are able to file a claim for damages depends on the issue of negligence. When someone—be it a person, a business, or even a governmental agency—acts negligently, they are typically liable for any harm their negligence causes.

Someone is liable for your damages if:

  • They owed you an implied or explicit duty of care
  • They breached that duty of care
  • You suffered injuries/harm as a result
  • Your injuries/harm led to measurable damages

For example, when people operate cars and other motor vehicles, they owe others on the road an implied duty of care. This means they have a responsibility to follow all traffic laws and drive with reasonable caution so as not to put others at risk. If someone is texting while driving, they are not only breaking the law, but they are also acting negligently, as they are distracted by their cell phone. If that person hits you, causing an accident in which you suffer multiple broken bones and severe whiplash, you can hold that person liable for your resulting damages.

There are few instances in which you do not need to show that someone was negligent in causing you harm in order to seek compensation. Such exceptions include most defective product cases and workers’ compensation claims.

What Are Personal Injury Damages?

We’ve mentioned “damages” a few times, but you may be wondering exactly what this refers to. In legal terms, damages are any economic or non-economic losses you have suffered as a result of the accident or incident that caused you harm.

Some examples of common damages in personal injury claims include:

Medical expenses, including ambulance and emergency room fees, treatment costs, ongoing rehabilitative care, transportation to doctors’ appointments, medications, etc.
Lost wages/income, including future lost wages/income for time taken off work to receive medical treatment and/or heal
Lost or reduced earning capacity when your injuries are disabling/prevent you from returning to work or obtaining any gainful employment at all
Pain and suffering, including emotional distress and trauma associated with the incident, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Property damage repairs, such as the cost of repairs/vehicle value when your car is damaged or totaled in an accident
In wrongful death claims, surviving family members may seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, loss of companionship/support, and loss of expected inheritance.
