Damages You Can Recover After an Accident in Lumberton, N.C.
Your case’s worth depends on many factors. The severity of your injury, type of accident, and the details of the incident can all affect the total damages you can request.
Some damages you could collect include:
- Medical bills, such as emergency room visits or hospital stays, doctor appointments, specialists, medical equipment, and pharmacy bills
- Lost wages for work you missed because you were away, recovering from your injuries
- Reduced earning capacity, if your injuries prevent you from returning to your previous job or getting a new job
- Property damages, such as a vehicle in a car accident or any personal belongings the accident destroyed
- Non-economic damages, including pain and suffering, humiliation, inconvenience, emotional distress
Why the Liable Party Should Pay for Your Losses
This list does not include all possible damages. If you believe the person or people responsible for your accident owe you money for your losses, our lawyer will help you determine who is at fault for your injury and assign a fair value to your case.
It is not right that you should have to completely turn your life upside down as the victim. Leaving a job, scheduling and attending doctor appointments, and having potential hospital stays and medical treatments can mean thousands of dollars in costs and hours or days in time lost. Not only does this affect you, but it can also affect those close to you. The person responsible should be the one who pays for the accident’s costs.

North Carolina’s Statute of Limitations Sets a Strict Deadline for Your Injury Case
You must act quickly if you plan to file a lawsuit to recover your losses. In North Carolina, personal injury victims have three years to file a lawsuit, according to G.S. § 1-52. If the accident caused someone’s death, the time limit is two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit, per G.S. § 1-53.
Our attorney will advise you if you have more or less time, depending on your situation. We encourage you to start your legal action as soon as possible. We will need time to investigate and build a strong case for you.
Missing the Filing Deadline Could Lead to More Losses
If you miss the state’s deadline for filing your lawsuit, you risk losing the opportunity to recover any damages. That likely means you will have no chance to receive compensation for your injuries and other costs from your accident.

Our Personal Injury Attorney Can Determine Who Is Liable
To win your case, you will need to prove your injury is the result of negligence or malice on someone else’s part. If you can prove that your injury was the direct result of this neglect, the liable party may owe you money. Generally, four elements of negligence must be present to determine a personal injury occurred. They are:
- Duty of care. The liable party had a legal obligation to keep you safe or free from harm.
- Breached duty of care. They breached this obligation in some way by doing or not doing something.
- Causation. Their breach caused an accident that led to your injuries.
- Damages. Your injuries made you take on losses that cost you money, time, peace of mind, and more. You should receive financial awards for these losses.
We Will Present Your Case to The Insurance Company
A personal injury attorney working on your case will help you establish these elements based on your case’s evidence. They will gather evidence, communicate with law enforcement and insurance company representatives, and calculate your damages. They can also help you find medical consultation to determine the extent and prove the origin of your injuries if necessary
After building your case, our attorney will present it to an insurance company to show how the liable party is responsible for your damages. If we can’t settle your case in negotiations with insurers, then we can present it to a judge and jury and let them decide. This could lead to a court-ordered award for you.
