Who Is Liable for Amputation Injury Accidents in North Carolina?

If another person or party was responsible for the accident that led to your amputation injury, you may be able to seek compensation from them. However, you will need to provide evidence that they were fully responsible for the injury and that you did not play a role in it. North Carolina is a pure contributory negligence state for personal injury, meaning you would not be able to claim compensation if you contributed at all towards the cause of your injury.

If the accident happened at work, you may be able to hold your employer responsible through a workers’ compensation claim or personal injury lawsuit. Workers’ compensation in North Carolina is a no-fault system designed to protect both employers and employees. However, the details surrounding your accident will affect whether your injury qualifies for workers’ comp, and these benefits are more limited than the damages that can be sought in a regular personal injury case.

Amputation injury accidents can be complicated and include many components. Working with qualified amputation injury lawyers is an important step in navigating these cases effectively.

Should You Sue After an Amputation Injury Accident?

If another party was responsible for your amputation injury, you can claim compensation from them in a few different ways. The primary method is through an insurance claim. If the at-fault party has liability insurance that covers your injury, you can seek compensation through their insurer. However, if the responsible party does not have adequate liability insurance, you may need to file a lawsuit to seek compensation.

Your attorney can help you understand all of your options following an amputation injury that was no fault of your own. Contact us today to schedule a free case evaluation so we can assess the details of your case.

How Much Compensation Can You Seek in an Amputation Injury Case in North Carolina?

The exact amount you can seek from an amputation injury claim or lawsuit depends on the circumstances surrounding your case.

You should seek compensation that would cover the economic damages such as medical bills and treatment incurred from the accident. Aside from damages for expenses, you can also pursue noneconomic damages for the traumatic experiences you have suffered due to the injury, such as pain and suffering.

Third, you may also seek punitive damages if the at-fault party acted recklessly to cause the accident. The excessive or exceptional nature of the actions which led to your injury will affect what punitive damages may be awarded, if any.

Your attorney can help you approach your case strategically to improve your chances of appropriate compensation.

How Can An Amputation Injury Attorney Help?

If you recently experienced an amputation injury due to another person’s negligence, don’t navigate your case alone. An experienced North Carolina amputation injury attorney can take the responsibility of your insurance claim or lawsuit off your shoulders, giving you time and space to recover.

Amputation injury lawyers can provide a range of services to assist in your case, such as:

  • Helping you gather evidence
  • Speaking with the at-fault party and insurance company on your behalf
  • Helping you file a lawsuit
