"How much is my case worth?"

Greensboro Personal Injury Lawyer (4)The goal of a personal injury case is to obtain monetary compensation for the victim through a judgment (verdict) or settlement. In personal injury law, "damages" represent the amount of money that is reasonably equal to her physical, mental, and/or monetary suffering. There are two types of damages that are common to personal injury cases and will help you calculate the value of your case:

Compensation for damages

Compensatory damages are intended to compensate for financial losses resulting from your injury. It is easy to calculate compensatory damages based on hospital bills, medical treatment and time off work, but it is much more difficult to assess how your quality of life has changed or the physical and mental suffering you have suffered. An experienced attorney can help you calculate damages and obtain maximum compensation in your accident case.

Common types of compensatory damages include:

  • Medical treatment- In most personal injury cases, you will receive monetary compensation for past and future medical treatment.
  • Pain and suffering- The physical pain and suffering you have endured can be difficult to measure, but one of our experienced attorneys will review your medical expenses to help determine a monetary value.
  • Distressemotional- It is the mental anguish resulting from the injury. Symptoms of emotional distress can vary and can include fear, anxiety, sadness, shock, confusion, and insomnia.
  • waste ofsalary and loss of potentialfuture income: a serious injury can prevent you from working, resulting in a loss of income. You may also be awarded damages due to a "loss of earning capacity" - your inability to earn future income due to the injury.
  • Property damage- Many times personal property is damaged or destroyed in the accident. Our attorneys can help evaluate items such as vehicles, items inside the vehicle, and clothing to help you receive compensation.
  • loss of enjoyment- Serious accidents can change your life in an instant, and victims are often entitled to compensation for their diminished quality of life. This includes the inability to participate in activities and experiences that were previously enjoyed.
  • Loss of Consortium- In North Carolina, these damages refer to the effect that an accident has had on your relationship with your husband or wife, such as loss of companionship, or the inability to engage in sexual intimacy. In some North Carolina jurisdictions, the impact of the injury on a parent-child relationship may also be considered.

punitive damages

Greensboro Personal Injury Lawyer (5)punitive damagesthey are similar to fines and are intended to punish the defendant. If the defendant's actions are found to have been malicious or grossly irresponsible, you may be awarded punitive damages. In North Carolina, including Greensboro, punitive damages are limited to three times the amount awarded for compensatory damages or $250,000, whichever is greater.

Our attorneys can help you determine the best legal options available to obtain the maximum compensation for your injury claim. Please, call to(336) 516-9066and let's talk.

How to Prove Negligence in an Injury Case

If one person acts carelessly and causes injury to another (even if unintentional), it is called negligence. Negligence forms the basis of most personal injury claims.

To prove negligence in a personal injury case, four elements must be proven:

  • duty of care- The defendant had a legal responsibility to avoid acts or mitigate conditions that could cause injury.
  • Breach- The defendant failed to take preventive measures to avoid injuring another person.
  • Cause- The defendant's omission caused the injury.
  • Damage- The damage caused economic losses to the plaintiff.

Our attorneys approach proof of negligence with a proven process, methodically gathering and evaluating evidence, sometimes with the help of experienced investigators on staff. In complex cases, we can even bring in expert witnesses such as an accident reconstructionist and federal truck safety experts to help prove negligence on the part of the defendant.

contributory negligence

North Carolina is one of the few states that use the doctrine of"contributory negligence".Essentially, this means that to recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit (or any injury lawsuit in the state of North Carolina),you must prove that the defendant was 100% responsible for the accident.If the defense can prove that the plaintiff contributed only 1% to the cause of the accident, the claim cannot be recovered. There are certain exceptions to this rule, but it is a very difficult hurdle in many personal injury lawsuits.

Fortunately, the attorneys at Riddle & Brantley have over 220 years of combined legal experience and understand how to counter contributory negligence defenses. We have successfully overcome hundreds of these defenses and know the law in North Carolina inside and out. For help proving liability in your injury case, please call our attorneys today at(336) 516-9066or fill out the quick and convenient form below.
