The injuries that result from accidents vary depending on what caused the injuries. Vehicle and motorcycle accidents can cause many of the same types of injuries, such as:
- Broken limbs
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and concussion
- Neck and Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Organ damage
- Muscle sprains
- Bruises and burns
The severity of these injuries can be even greater in accidents involving semi-trucks and may require immediate and ongoing medical attention and treatment.
Similar injuries can occur after an injury on a property, like sprained or broken limbs or head injuries from a slip and fall, for example. A number of different accidents can cause a traumatic brain injury, and TBIs can range from mild to moderate to severe. Still, no matter the type of severe injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering if someone else was responsible for the accident.
How May I Be Compensated?
If you’ve been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, you may be eligible for compensation. There are three types of compensation you may receive after suffering injuries from a personal injury accident:
- Economic damages – These damages are intended to reimburse you for the medical costs and other expenses you incur when receiving treatment for your injuries. Any expenses for future medical treatment or rehabilitation may also be compensated. Economic damages also cover your loss of income due to your having to take time off of work to recover from your injuries. If you’ve suffered any property damage as a result of the accident or incident, you may also be awarded economic damages to cover that loss.
- Noneconomic damages – These damages are compensation for what’s typically known as “pain and suffering.” The emotional and mental impact your accident has had on you should not go uncompensated. The effects of your accident can be long-lasting and can exist long after you’ve physically recovered. The quality of your life may be forever changed. You should be compensated for this, and that’s exactly what noneconomic damages are intended for.
- Punitive damages – This form of compensation is rare. For the most egregious acts of neglect, fraud, or malice, you may be awarded punitive damages.
If it is proven that another party was 100% negligent for the accident or incident that caused your injuries, they may be liable for compensating you in the form of economic and noneconomic damages. The state of North Carolina is a pure contributory negligence state. If you are found to have contributed to your injuries at all, you will not be eligible for compensation.
It’s also important to remember that the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit in North Carolina is three years from the date of the accident or injury. If you attempt to file your lawsuit after the statutory period expires, your case may be dismissed by the court. Should that occur, you will have lost your opportunity to pursue compensation through the court system.
