Proving Negligence for a Spinal Injury in North Carolina

To seek compensation following a spinal cord injury, you must prove that the other party was at fault for your accident due to their negligence. Spinal injury cases are a type of personal injury case. In order to prove fault in these cases, the following must be true:

  • The other party had a duty of care to you.
  • The other party breached that duty of care.
  • The breach of duty led to an accident.
  • You experienced an injury that was caused by the accident.

Additionally, North Carolina is a pure contributory negligence state. This means accident victims in North Carolina cannot claim any compensation if they were even 1% at fault for their accidents.

The spinal cord injury lawyers at Speaks Law Firm can help you gather evidence to support your assertion that the other party was 100% at fault for your accident.

How Much Compensation Can You Seek in a North Carolina Spinal Injury Case?

The amount of compensation you can recover for your spinal injury depends on the details of your case and the extent of your injuries and expenses. Your attorney can help you claim sufficient funds to cover the monetary expenses you have incurred from your injury. These damages, known as economic damages, include expenses such as the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Medications
  • At-home medical supplies
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of ability to work

You can also seek noneconomic damages, such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Emotional distress

If the at-fault party acted recklessly to cause your accident, you can also seek punitive damages. These damages punish the defendant for their wrongful conduct by taking money out of their pocket to compensate you.

For example, if you are the victim of a car accident and the at-fault driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, your case may warrant punitive damages. We can discuss whether punitive damages would be appropriate during your free case review.
