Don’t Settle for Less
Than You Deserve

North Carolina can be a difficult state in which to pursue personal injury claims. Ours is a contributory negligence state, meaning if you are even partially at fault for an accident, the case will most likely be thrown out. Defense attorneys go to great lengths to prove that an injury victim played some role in their accident, and they will try to make the plaintiff unintentionally admit fault.

We have overcome these obstacles countless times before, and we are confident that we can likely do it again for you. We know you and your family have suffered enough, and now your priority should only be on healing. Our Raleigh personal injury attorneys can protect your interests and relentlessly fight for everything you need in order to make a full recovery.

Don’t Wait to File a Claim

According to the N.C. Gen. Stat. section 1-52 the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in North Caroline is three years. This means you have three years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you might lose your right to pursue compensation. While North Carolina does recognize some exceptions to the three-year rule it is wise to file your personal injury claim as soon as possible. An attorney from our firm will be able to let you know how these laws could affect your case. Don’t wait, call us today to get started!

How to Get the Most Compensation out of Your Injury Claim

Thorp Law can help you with the steps to filing a personal injury claim after an accident due to negligence. The insurance companies involved in these matters are often aggressive and demanding, but our attorney understands the nuances of all personal injury claims and can defend you and your rights for compensation. In order to maximize your compensation after an injury, it is important to be aware of the following steps:

  • Be careful about what you say after an accident has occurred. Insurance companies will be eager to find any way out of compensation, and saying things like “I’m sorry” or “I didn’t see you” can be a detriment to your claim amount.

  • Call your insurance company to report the accident as soon as possible. No matter how serious your injury is, tell your insurance company the details of the accident so that you can begin your claims process.

  • Find out what the statute of limitations is for your injury. In North Carolina, the time limit an individual has to file a personal injury claim is within three years after the date that the injuries were sustained. Make sure that you file a claim within this time frame or your case will unfortunately be barred.

  • Keep all documentation related to the accident. You will start to collect many documents related to bills, payments, insurance, and reports. Make sure that you keep everything you are given in this timeframe so that you can boost your compensation in a successful personal injury case.

  • Write a professional demand letter to your insurance company. It’s important to state your requests for compensation in writing so that there is no discrepancy in what is agreed upon in your injury case.

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

When you are injured due to negligence, there are an overwhelming amount of details that you may be responsible for addressing if you are seeking compensation for your injuries. A personal injury lawyer has valuable experience that will make filing for an injury claim a smooth process. Personal injury lawyers can work to negotiate damages with insurance companies who may be refusing to compensate you fairly for your injury claim.

Damages are the compensation available to injury victims. Generally, damages can be broken down into two broad categories, compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are damages that seek to compensate the injured party for their losses while punitive damages seek to punish the negligent party for their reckless actions. Since punitive damages can be quite severe they are not often awarded.

Insurance companies use the following parameters to determine the damages in an injury claim. Both special and general damages are compensatory damages:

  • Special Damages- These types of losses are also referred to as "economic damages". They define measurable amounts of money or property that you may have lost as a result of negligence.
  • General Damages- These types of losses are also referred to as "non-economic damages". General damages define the types of losses that you've experienced that are intangible as a result of negligence, such a trauma or pain and suffering.

Recovering Lost Wages After an Accident

Accident victims often suffer injuries so severe that they are unable to perform their job duties. A broken leg or damaged spinal cord can keep you out of work for months. If you were employed at the time of an injury, you are entitled to damages for lost wages. These damages are equal to the number of working wages you lost while recovering. Unemployed accident victims can obtain damages for loss of wage-earning capacity. Medical impairment, functional ability, and vocational skills are considered if you were out-of-work when the accident occurred. In either case, be assertive when you talk to the at-fault party’s insurance company. Adjusters often downplay claims for lost wages, especially when you were unemployed at the time of injury.

Accident victims need to take the following steps in order to prove damages for lost wages:

  • Obtain copies of your medical records
  • Record the dates you were unable to work
  • Note the time and dates you received medical treatment
  • Keep any correspondence between you and your employer
  • Save medical bills
  • Obtain a statement from your employer indicating when you were scheduled to work and the amount of money you would have earned

If you were injured in a car crash or another type of accident, you may be able to recover lost wages. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you obtain compensation. Thorp Law has vast experience fighting for accident victims and guiding them through the legal process. Our team of lawyers will stand up to the insurance company so you can obtain fair compensation.
