What Are Non-Economic Damages in North Carolina?

You might be surprised by how many ways an injury accident can affect your life. Your injuries could be painful, they could hinder your mobility and enjoyment of life for a time, and they could lead to lost income due to the lengthy recovery time that is often required.

In addition to these losses, you could be dealing with many other negative issues directly caused by your accident. If you didn’t cause the accident that harmed you, then North Carolina law allows you to file a personal injury claim against the person who did. 

If your claim is successful, you could receive damages to pay for all of the accident-related issues you’ve been forced to deal with. This includes both economic and non-economic damages. Before you can figure out how much you’re owed for your accident, you probably need to answer this question: What are non-economic damages in North Carolina?

Economic Damages vs. Non-Economic Damages in North Carolina

When you’ve been injured in an accident, you will likely be owed two types of damages. Your economic losses, such as lost wages, medical bills, costs of physical therapy, and so on, are examples of the first type of damages.

The second type of damages is called non-economic damages. These damages are nonfinancial in nature and could include physical pain, mental suffering, loss of life enjoyment, permanent injury, disfigurement, scarring, and other losses.

Your claim should account for both your economic and non-economic damages. Ask a North Carolina personal injury lawyer how much you’re owed in damages by calling one at our firm.
