Car Accidents: The Many Ways They Occur

Car accidents can happen in various ways; no two accidents will have the exact same conditions. Some of the most common types of car accidents we encounter include:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Side-impact (T-bone) collisions
  • Rollovers
  • Multivehicle pileups
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents

Regardless of the specific circumstances, our attorneys have the experience to navigate even the most complicated auto accident cases.

The Grievous Injuries From A Car Accident

The force of impact in an automobile crash can cause severe injuries – some with lasting effects. Common injuries our clients have suffered include:

  • Whiplash and other neck/back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Lacerations and scarring

These injuries can result in substantial medical bills, lost wages, and long-term pain and suffering. Proper compensation is crucial for recovery, so you must approach your claim strategically.

Which Damages Can You Recover From A Car Accident?

If you’ve been injured due to another’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for damages such as:

  • Medical expenses (current and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

At Do the Math, our team’s goal is to pursue all avenues to help maximize your financial recovery.

How Much Is A Car Accident Case Worth?

The value of a case depends on factors like the severity of injuries, extent of damages, liability and insurance coverage. Yes, no amount of money can mend the emotional trauma of a violent collision. However, proper compensation can – at least – help pay for your medical bills. Our attorneys carefully evaluate each case’s unique circumstances to determine a fair settlement value.

What Your Compensation Should Cover

When you have no income to cover costs like medical bills, monthly bills, lost income, property damage, and other costs, it is not hard to do the math and see how long you can make ends meet. We do not want our clients to struggle to recover after an accident, which is why we work tirelessly to secure a quick and effective resolution to your claim.

We will take it upon ourselves to gather all the information necessary to craft a strategy to pursue a settlement that addresses the long-term needs and impacts of your injuries, including loss of earning ability, relocation and renovation costs to accommodate a disability, and loss of bodily function.

Car Accident Laws In North Carolina

Car accidents in North Carolina are subject to specific laws and regulations that can significantly impact your ability to recover compensation. It’s crucial to understand these laws, including:

  • Determining fault: North Carolina follows contributory negligence rules, meaning you may be barred from recovering damages if found even slightly at fault. Proving the other party’s negligence is important.
  • Statute of limitations: You generally have three years from the accident date to file a personal injury claim.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage: If the at-fault driver lacks adequate insurance, you may pursue a claim through your own policy’s uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. Our attorneys can guide you through this process.
  • Duty to report claims: North Carolina requires drivers to report any accident involving injury, death, or property damage over $1,000 to the DMV within 60 days. Failing to do so can result in penalties.

Our team understands the complexities of North Carolina’s car accident laws. We work tirelessly to protect your rights and pursue effective strategies, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve after an accident. If you or a loved one has been injured, contact us for a free consultation.
