4 Elements of Negligence You Need to Win Your Claim

As with other states across the country, North Carolina has a time frame during which you must file your personal injury lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, called the statute of limitations, you will not be able to pursue compensation through a civil lawsuit. The statute of limitations in North Carolina is three years from the date of the injury, so it's critical that you contact a skilled injury attorney as soon as possible before time runs out!

According to the Injury Claim Coach, if you have filed your claim within the time frame required by the statute of limitations, there are four key elements that you will need to prove negligence.

  • Causation- An individual must be able to prove how the at-fault party did something wrong, or failed to do what a reasonable individual would have done under the same circumstances.
  • Duty- Most entities have a "standard of care" that is established in order to avoid causing harm to others. If you can prove that standard of care has been breached, this will help with the success of your injury claim.
  • Breach of Duty- This refers to the direct cause of the damages that you are suffering from. Any insurance company will need proof that their insured party caused you hard by failing to do the appropriate thing in the circumstance.
  • Verifiable Damages- Once the insurance company has proof of negligence, they will need to see proof of the nature and extent of the damages you are suffering from. Most claims are separated into two categories of damages: special damages and general damages.

We understand that every case is unique, and our injury attorneys in Durham have the experience that you need to successfully seek financial compensation for your pain.

Common Personal Injury Questions

Looking for answers? Our Durham personal injury lawyers may be able to help. If you don't see the answer to your question below, please reach out to us directly to schedule a free initial consultation in which we can discuss your situation and how we can help.

Q. Is my settlement taxable? It depends on whether or not the funds you received are intended to replace money that you already spent on medical care or some form of treatment for your injuries. In general, if the money is simply intended to replace an out-of-pocket expense, you will not be charged taxes for it. However, it is always best to speak with a tax professional before making any assumptions about whether or not you can be taxed on your settlement.

Q. What types of personal injury damages can I recover? For most personal injury cases you may be eligible to recover compensation for the following: medical expenses, lost income (both past and future), damage to property, and pain or suffering. In certain instances you may also be able to recover punitive damages, as well as compensation for loss of enjoyment or loss of consortium.
