How Much is a Personal Injury Claim Worth?
If you have recently suffered an injury due to malpractice or negligence, you are probably wondering whether or not you have grounds to file a lawsuit for compensation. You are also probably wondering how much your personal injury claim is worth. This is a question we get asked a lot, and it's always a difficult one to answer without having reviewed the facts of your case.
The biggest factor that is taken into consideration when determining how much a case is worth is the extent of your injuries, and they will affect your life in the immediate future and in years to come. Naturally, claims involving minor injuries are worth less than claims involving serious injuries, such as amputations, permanent disability, brain injuries, paralysis, etc. Other factors that are often taken into consideration include:
- If there was any property damage
- Which person or persons is at fault for the accident
- The degree to which each person involved was at fault
This last point is important. North Carolina is still a contributory negligence state, which means that if you are even partially at fault for the accident you will be extremely limited in the amount of compensation you can recover.
