North Carolina Personal Injury Cases
North Carolina personal injury cases are designed to compensate individuals who are injured because of the negligence of another. This “another” can mean a business, such as in a slip-and-fall situation, and/or a person, such as in a motor vehicle accident. There are time limits (See also Statute of Limitations) and location requirements to have a viable personal injury claim. In general, you have three (3) years from the date of the accident to file the case in District or Superior Court, and you must file the case in the county where the accident occurred. Also see Overview of a NC Personal Injury Case.
What can you recover?
According to NC Law, the at-fault party is responsible for compensating you for your accident related medical bills, lost wages and pain & suffering. An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to help you determine what compensation you can recover from your personal injury case.
Settle or Go to Trial?
One of, if not the most difficult, question at the outset of your personal injury claim is whether to accept a settlement offer from the at-fault party’s insurance company or take the case to trial. In short, the answer to that question is “it depends.” To determine your best options, a personal injury attorney will review and analyze the issues in your case and guide you in your decision of when, if, and for how much to settle your claims. This review and analysis includes considering the factors unique to taking a personal injury claim to trial in Cumberland County District or Superior Court.

Do you really need a Personal Injury Attorney in Fayetteville, NC?
After being injured in a car crash, bitten by a dog, suffered a workers’ compensation injury or any other type of injury that was not your fault, you need to recover for your loses. Legal advice can help you make informed decisions about your injury claim.
If you want to obtain the maximum compensation for your personal injury claims, you need a Fayetteville North Carolina personal Injury Lawyer. Do not expect the at-fault party, at-fault driver’s insurance company, or their lawyer to inform you of all the recovery you are entitled to. It is the goal of the at-fault party’s insurance company to pay you the bare minimum, if anything, for your personal injury claim. The Bishop Law Firm, on the other hand, seeks to get you the most recovery possible for your claims.
We do not get paid anything unless you get paid, AND we only get paid a percentage from the recovery you are awarded. This means that we are motivated to help you attain the highest recovery possible. Call us today for a free case evaluation at (919) 615-3095!
