Some roads in North Carolina are simply accidents waiting to happen. These include long stretches of tight curves on very narrow road mountain roads or faulty roads with numerous potholes or other problems. Still most accidents are due to human error. If you have been injured in such an accident you have the right to file a personal injury claim.
If the claim is ruled in your favor, you will be awarded compensation for your medical bills, loss of income, property damage and possibly other losses. If the injury you suffered is so severe that you will need physical therapy to regain your physical function and mobility, the compensation you are to receive can also cover those expenses.
However, you need to understand that North Carolina follows modified comparative negligence laws. This means that if your actions during the incident contributed to the accident, the compensation amount you are to receive may be affected also. There is also the risk that may might not receiving any compensation at all.
Fortunately, there is a way for you to increase your chances to be awarded compensation for the injuries you’ve sustained. Enlist the services of a tough injury lawyer to take on your case and guide you through the process.
