What happens in a personal injury case?
After you file a personal injury lawsuit, the defendant will be served a summons and a summary of your claims against them, and they will be required to file a response to your complaint. Then, to prepare for trial, both parties will engage in discovery, which is a formal process of obtaining information pertaining to the case.
When discovery is complete, you will be ready to go to trial. However, we will usually first try to settle the case out of court through mediation.
What should I do if the other party’s lawyer or insurance company calls me?
We typically recommend that you not communicate with anyone connected to the opposing party. Although an insurance adjuster may seem friendly, he might be trying to obtain a statement from you that mitigates the at-fault party’s liability. If someone contacts you, tell them to speak with your attorney.
How much is my case worth?
If you have been injured as a result of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation for out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury, including medical costs and lost wages. The exact amount of that compensation depends on the extent of your injuries and the impact they have on your life. We have extensive experience evaluating personal injury cases and estimating the potential settlement value. Please contact us today to arrange a complimentary consultation with an attorney.
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?
For most personal injury claims in North Carolina, the statute of limitations is three years. This means that you have three years from the date the injury occurred to file a personal injury lawsuit. Certain types of cases, such as wrongful death lawsuits and workers compensation claims, have a two-year statute of limitations.
How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
To ensure access to legal representation, even when you can’t afford to pay for it, personal injury litigation is generally handled on a contingent fee basis. This means that you don’t have to pay any attorney’s fees unless we win you a judgment or a settlement. The fee structure is generally a percentage of the judgment or settlement, and you keep the remaining balance.
