How Serious Must My Injuries Be to File a Personal Injury Claim in North Carolina?

January 14, 2024

At Dewey, Ramsay & Hunt, P.A., our Charlotte personal injury attorneys know that the severity of your injuries is essential when considering whether to file a North Carolina personal injury claim. However, no specific threshold dictates how severe your injuries must be. Instead, the critical factor is whether another party’s negligence or wrongful conduct caused your injuries.

While it is generally true that more severe injuries are more likely to result in higher settlements or judgments, we know that even smaller or more minor injuries impact our client’s daily activities and overall quality of life.

Here is what injury victims and their families need to know about their eligibility to file a claim.

Personal Injury Claim

How Do Your Injuries Affect Your Daily Activities and Overall Quality of Life?

At Dewey, Ramsay & Hunt, P.A., our skilled personal injury lawyers in Charlotte understand that “serious” or “severe” are subjective words to describe our clients’ injuries.

What may be serious to you — like a broken leg that keeps you from working as a server in a restaurant or a tradesperson on a construction site — may appear on paper to the insurance company as nothing more than a minor injury that will heal. This means they are not considering how long you will be out of work and how much revenue you will lose now and going forward. That matters.

Your life differs significantly from someone else’s who may have suffered a similar injury. Understanding how your injuries impact your overall well-being and ability to work makes a tremendous difference in how we approach your case.

When your accident and injuries were caused by negligence, no matter how simple or severe they appear on paper, the responsible party must be held liable for your costly medical bills, extended time away from work, and any additional accident-related expenses you incur.

Whether you have suffered severe injuries that disrupt your livelihood or catastrophic injuries that have changed your life, your case is unique. It requires a customized legal approach to producing tangible results. We can help.
