How Much Does A North Carolina Personal Injury Attorney Cost?
The good news is that affording a personal injury attorney in North Carolina is usually much more reasonable than most people realize. At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, our attorneys take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that our clients will not have to pay any upfront or out-of-pocket costs related to their case. In fact, our clients will pay no attorney fees until after we obtain the compensation they are entitled to. This type of fee arrangement is something that we think is fair. It allows injury victims to stand up to at-fault parties, regardless of their wealth or current economic situation.
Is There A Time Limit For Filing Personal Injury Claims In North Carolina?
Personal injury victims do need to be aware that there is a limited amount of time for them to file a lawsuit against alleged negligent parties. In North Carolina, the personal injury statute of limitations is three years from the date the injury occurred. When a loved one has been killed due to the negligence of another, this is known as a Wrongful Death claim, and the statute of limitations for this type of claim is two years from the date of death. This means that injury victims have either a two-year window or three-year window within which to file a lawsuit against the person or company who caused the harm, depending upon whether the injuries were fatal. Failing to file a lawsuit within the applicable time frame will result in the victim or victim’s family is unable to recover the compensation they deserve.
There are various exceptions to the three-year personal injury time limit written into the law, particularly if the injury victim was under the age of 18 when the incident occurred or if the victim has been deemed to be mentally incompetent. In these cases, the statute of limitations will typically not begin counting down until the victim reaches the age of majority or the incapacitation is no longer a factor.
What Type Of Compensation Is Available For These Cases?
At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, our personal injury attorneys in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina have a track record of success recovering compensation for clients. This includes both economic and non-economic types of compensation. In general, some of the most common types of conversation we help injury victims recover includes the following:
- Reimbursement of medical expenses
- Coverage of any necessary medical devices or medications
- Lost income if a victim cannot work, both past lost income and future loss of earning capacity
- Property damage expenses
- Home or vehicle modifications to help with mobility
- Pain and suffering damages
- Scarring or disfigurement damages
- Loss of quality of life damages
The total amount of compensation paid out in these cases will vary depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding each particular situation. We urge every Charlotte personal injury victim to work with a skilled attorney who can help properly calculate their total expected losses and negotiate with insurance carriers or at-fault parties.
