North Carolina Personal Injury Laws

North Carolina follows a fault-based (or "at-fault") system when it comes to personal injury laws related to car accidents. In a fault-based system, the party responsible for causing the accident is typically held liable for the resulting injuries and damages.

To win a personal injury lawsuit in North Carolina, you must prove the following elements:

  1. Duty of Care: You must demonstrate that the defendant owed you a duty of care. This duty of care varies depending on the circumstances of the case. For example, in a car accident case, all drivers owe a duty of care to operate their vehicles safely and obey traffic laws.
  2. Breach of Duty: You must show that the defendant breached their duty of care. This means proving that the defendant failed to act as a reasonably prudent person would under similar circumstances. For instance, if the defendant was speeding, driving recklessly, or engaging in negligent behavior, they may be found to have breached their duty of care.
  3. Causation: You must establish a direct causal link between the defendant's breach of duty and your injuries. In other words, you must prove that the defendant's actions or negligence directly led to your injuries. This can sometimes be a complex aspect of a personal injury case, particularly in cases with pre-existing injuries or multiple contributing factors.
  4. Damages: To succeed in a personal injury lawsuit, you must demonstrate that you suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant's actions. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other losses related to the injury.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

When navigating the complex personal injury process in North Carolina, it’s important that you have a trusted legal advisor and advocate on your side. The laws regarding personal injury and wrongful death claims can be complex, and you need to make sure your rights are protected.

Here are some common types of personal injury cases:

  • Car Accidents: Car accidents occur when drivers fail to exercise reasonable care, leading to collisions that result in injuries to passengers, pedestrians, or other drivers.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: These cases involve injuries suffered by motorcyclists due to the negligence of other drivers or hazardous road conditions.
  • Truck Accidents: Truck accidents typically involve collisions with large commercial trucks, often resulting in severe injuries due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved.
  • Catastrophic Injuries: Catastrophic injuries refer to severe and life-altering injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or severe burns.
  • Medical Malpractice: These cases arise when healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, or hospitals, provide substandard care that leads to patient injuries or harm.
  • Nursing Home Abuse: When residents of nursing homes or long-term care facilities suffer physical, emotional, or financial abuse or neglect, legal action may be pursued.
  • Birth Injuries: Birth injury cases involve harm to newborns or mothers during childbirth due to medical negligence or malpractice.
  • Premises Liability: Property owners can be held responsible for injuries that occur on their premises due to unsafe conditions, such as slip and falls or inadequate security.
  • Product Liability: Injuries caused by defective products, including design defects, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings, can lead to product liability claims.
  • Sexual Abuse: Victims of sexual abuse or assault may seek legal action against their perpetrators or institutions that allowed the abuse to occur.
  • Work Accidents: Employees injured while performing their job duties may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits, but they can also pursue personal injury claims against third parties responsible for their injuries.
  • Wrongful Death: When someone dies as a result of another party's negligence or wrongful act, surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for their loss.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
