What is My North Carolina Personal Injury Claim Worth?May 29, 2023
My Personal Injury Claim Worth in North Carolina
When North Carolina residents are injured in vehicle collisions, construction accidents, or because of negligent conditions on public or private property, they often require extended medical care, and lengthy absences from work.
Each of these damages, and others they may incur during their recoveries, may be pursued from the at-fault party’s insurance company by filing a personal injury claim. The question is, how much is your personal injury claim worth?
Our Charlotte personal injury attorneys at Dewey, Ramsay & Hunt, P.A. can help you outline your complete financial recovery needs, based on your unique circumstances. While those details differ for each client we represent, there are several expenses that are common to most personal injury claims.
What Damages Can I Include in My North Carolina Personal Injury Claim?
The expenses you can recover from a personal injury claim in North Carolina depend on the extent of your injuries, whether you need any further treatment, or if have any permanent damage.
Our Charlotte personal injury attorneys will outline your claim to fully include:
Current and Future Medical Expenses
Depending on the extent of your injuries, your medical expenses may include hospital stays, lab work, X-rays, surgeries, mobility aids, prescription drug costs, physical or occupational therapy, and rehabilitation.
If you require ongoing medical care, or have suffered permanent injuries, we will forecast your complete medical needs, so you are not left paying for treatment out of pocket going forward.
Current and Future Lost Wages
If you can recover from your injuries, your personal injury claim will include the temporary loss of income you experienced while you were unable to work. If you are permanently injured, and are unable to work going forward, we will include your diminished earning capacity in your personal injury claim negotiations to include the projected income you would likely have made.
The physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering you have endured while recovering from your injuries can be assigned a monetary value. So can your loss of enjoyment, or diminished quality of life that resulted from your injuries.
Outlining your full financial recovery needs may be difficult to do on your own. Without a skilled Charlotte personal injury attorney by your side, the insurance company will undervalue your claim, so they can pay as little as possible. You do not have to take their word for it.
We can help you outline your unique personal injury damages based on the extent of your injuries, and how they have impacted your daily activities and overall quality of life.
