The Plaintiff is the injured party – the person making the claim. The Defendant is the at-fault party or the person that caused the injury.
You can get compensation for damages or losses due to the injuries. There are a number of different types based on the facts of each case. The three most basic damages one can recover are 1) medical bills reasonably related to the crash, 2) lost wages reasonably related to the crash, and 3) pain and suffering reasonably related to the crash.
Pain and suffering can be a very complicated damage to value. At its most basic level, pain and suffering is just that – the pain and suffering that a person suffers as a result of the motor vehicle crash – but in reality, it is much more complicated than that. Because a jury pays a Plaintiff’s pain and suffering, adjusters look at what a jury might consider when calculating pain and suffering. For that reason, adjusters look at the type of crash, the severity of the crash, the types of injuries, the severity of the injuries, the types of treatment, and the length of treatment. But what this all boils down to is what is good for you (lesser injuries and lesser treatment) is bad for your case (less money for pain and suffering), and what is bad for you (worse injuries and more treatment) is good for your case (more money for pain and suffering).
We can’t tell you what your personal injury case is worth because there are so many variables that decide that number. Factors such as treatment time, medical bill amounts, bad acts by the Defendant, insurance limits, prior medical conditions, as well as many others play a role in determining the value of your personal injury case. What we can tell you is that we can fight every step of the way to get you every penny your case is worth if you’re our client.
Contributory Negligence is a very old law, left over from old English Common Law. North Carolina is one of only a handful of states which still use Contributory Negligence. Under the Contributory Negligence rule, if a Defendant is 99 at fault but a Plaintiff is 1% at fault for injuries, the Plaintiff gets zero ($0.00). This is why it’s important that you have an attorney to defend you and prove your innocence if you’ve been injured in an accident in North Carolina.
