Were You Hurt in an Accident?
One misstep at work, on the road, or even out shopping can result in a personal injury.
Unfortunately, accidents happen every day and in many different ways. While it’s important to be cautious and try to avoid unwanted injuries, there are some things you simply cannot control.
That’s why at Speaks Law Firm, we handle a variety of personal injury claims. If any of these match your situation, please don’t wait to call us. We may be able to help.
How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
The statute of limitations dictates the amount of time an individual has to file a lawsuit against the other party involved in their accident. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations varies between two and three years, according to the North Carolina General Assembly.
In other words, if you were injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have three years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. While most personal injury cases are able to be settled before filing a lawsuit becomes necessary, it’s important to keep the statute of limitations in mind in the event that a fair settlement is unable to be reached and you need to take your case to court. If you fail to file before the statute of limitations, your chances of receiving any compensation are little to none.
Our Wilmington personal injury lawyers know the laws that govern our state. We can make sure your claim is filed correctly and on time in order for you to have the best chance of obtaining the compensation you deserve.
How to Prove Negligence
If you were in an accident due to no fault of your own, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. In order to have a successful claim, however, you must first prove that the other party involved acted negligently.
To prove negligence, you must have sufficient evidence that the other party acted in a way that showed no care or concern for the safety of others. You will also have to prove it was this reckless behavior that directly caused your accident and consequent injuries.
The process of proving negligence can be complicated. Our North Carolina personal injury lawyers can help you gather all the documents, bills, and evidence needed to build a strong case, giving you the best chance of maximum compensation.
If you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else, our personal injury lawyers can help you navigate the legal process. We may be able to secure medical opinions that add value to your claim and prepare settlement documentation that correlates with the insurance company’s valuation model. This allows us to anticipate what the adjuster will need in order to pay you fair compensation. Our attorneys can take the stress and hassle of your case off your hands, so you can focus on getting better.
After suffering a serious personal injury, you may be eligible to recover compensation for:
- Past Medical Expenses
- Future Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Lost Earning Potential
- Total or Partial Loss of Use of a Body Part
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Loss of Companionship
North Carolina law places the cost of accidents and injuries on those who caused them. With this in mind, you may be able to seek compensation for your medical bills from the other party’s insurance company. If you are unsure who was at fault in your accident, our lawyers can go over the event with you to ensure you are seeking damages from the responsible party.
Our attorneys at Speaks Law Firm are proud to work on a contingency-fee basis. This means our payment is dependent on whether we are able to secure compensation for you. We feel this is the best way to serve our clients because it enables them to acquire the full service of an experienced attorney without worrying about upfront costs or hidden fees. Our earnings come from a percentage of the amount we are able to win for you. If we don’t win, we don’t get paid.
While a lawyer isn’t required, having an experienced personal injury law firm on your side will generally result in a substantially greater settlement for your claim. Additionally, an attorney can handle the hassles of your case and make the challenging legal process much easier for you and your family.
