It’s tragic and unfair, but all too often good people are hurt or killed in car wrecks or other types of accidents. Sometimes the injury is caused by a drunk driver or someone deliberately putting others at risk. Other times, however, the injury or death happens because of negligence—when someone else is careless and not paying attention.
If you, a family member, or friend has been seriously injured, North Carolina law allows you to recover money from those responsible for the accident—which is usually covered by that driver’s insurance. The law allows you to recover money for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Permanent disability
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish and emotional suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
In cases where a loved one dies because of another’s carelessness, his or her family is entitled to receive compensation for other losses, such as loss of companionship, advice, and company.
Recovering from serious injuries, or the death of a loved one, is a very difficult and emotional time. No one sees it coming and yet your life is changed in an instant. People need help in times like these to know where to turn.
Sadly, deadlines exist for filing lawsuits in these cases despite the grief and fear you’re likely feeling. You need an experienced lawyer whom you can trust. Mills Law has served your community and is on your side.
