This rule is called the statute of limitation. Every state has their own time period of how long an individual has to file a claim, in North Carolina the time limit is three years.

Should I Hire a Chapel Hill Attorney For My Case?

Not only can a Chapel Hill attorney walk you through the often complicated legal process of filing a claim, but they are true advocates on your side, unlike insurance companies. Insurance companies are first and foremost a business that look out for their own best interest before yours. Additionally, many people find that their injuries turn out to be more severe days or weeks after they sustained them.

If you accept an insurance settlement before you know the depths of your injuries, you may find your settlement no longer covers all your medical expenses. An experienced attorney from our firm can fight to protect your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Recoverable Damages and Your Personal Injury Claim

The compensation claimants pursue in a personal injury claim is called “damages.” There are three categories of personal injury damages, however the amount in damages and how many types of damages you will be able to pursue depends on the specifics of your unique case.

The three types are:

  • Economic damages
  • Non-economic damages
  • And punitive damages

Economic Damages

Economic damages compensate for financial losses that are related to the injuries you suffered. This can include past and future medical expenses or missed wages due to the inability to work.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages compensate for less tangible losses such as pain and suffering or mental anguish.

Punitive Damages

Last, punitive damages serve as financial punishment for the negligent party as opposed to compensating the injured party. Of the three, punitive damages are the least awarded. If you want to learn more, contact an attorney from our firm today.
