When Does an Injury Qualify for a Settlement in North Carolina?

There are many accidents you can be involved in, and some may be more severe than others. When someone else causes your accident, you may wonder whether you have grounds for a personal injury claim. As long as you can prove negligence on behalf of the liable party in your accident and you suffered injuries because of the accident, then you can sue the at-fault party.

At The Nye Law Group, we have experience handling personal injury cases, and we can investigate your case to determine whether it involved negligence. We’ll gather evidence, such as photographs, video footage, and witness testimonies and use this evidence to pinpoint the liable party. Once we identify the defendant, we can begin moving forward with your injury case.

If Negligence Played a Role in Your NC Accident

Negligence isn’t always obvious as soon as your accident takes place, but once your investigation is underway, you may uncover the truth about how your accident occurred. For example, you may suffer injuries in a car wreck, but initially the cause of the accident is unclear. The investigation may unveil that your car’s steering wheel was defective, and the manufacturer was negligent in designing the car.

As long as it’s determined that negligence played a role in your accident, then you can sue the negligent party in a personal injury claim and you can try to recover a settlement. 

If You Suffered Damages because of Your Accident

The other requirement you must have to qualify for a settlement is damages. Even if a party is negligent in your accident, you can’t pursue a settlement if you haven’t suffered any damages. You must prove to the judge that the negligent party not only caused the accident, but their negligence caused your injuries or other losses, such as property damages or non-economic damages
