Common injuries sustained
in personal injury accidents

Injuries sustained in a personal injury accident can vary in severity. Even if you recovered after a few weeks, you deserve financial compensation from the at-fault party for your losses and the expenses you incurred.

Some of the most common injuries associated with car accidents include:
Broken bones
Crush injuries
Traumatic Brain Injury
Lacerations and wounds
Psychological injuries
Loss of limb or amputation injury
Internal bleeding or organ damage
Spinal cord or back injury
Nerve damage
Soft tissue injuries

Whether the damage to you is temporary, permanent impairment, or disability, we will thoroughly review the injuries you sustained to determine the maximum financial award you need to cover your treatment and move forward with your life.

What damages are available in a personal injury case?

If you sustain an injury, you could be confronted with an endless pile of medical bills and records, as well as lost earnings if you need to take a break from work or mounting costs due to property damage or physical harm. These expenses and losses are called damages. In most injury accidents, you will likely incur multiple types of damages. Damages fall under two main subcategories: economic and non-economic.

Economic Damages:

Economic damages refer to all the costs incurred as a result of the injury, such as:  medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, property damage, and other out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the event.

Non-Economic Damages:

Non-economic damages include the physical and emotional trauma experienced after an accident, such as:  pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium.

Non-economic damages are often difficult for insurance adjusters to calculate. It’s entirely subjective. While pain might be excruciating to one person, it can be a minor inconvenience to another.

Insurance companies review factors like the ones listed below to determine a fair settlement amount to offer to the victim: fraud, malice, negligence, recklessness, and willful or wanton conduct.

All economic and non-economic damages listed above are available in insurance claims and lawsuits. However, there’s a third type, called punitive damages. Punitive damages aren’t intended to compensate the victim for their losses. Instead, they punish the at-fault party for their actions and aim to deter similar behavior in the future.

Punitive damages are a rare financial award a jury will only provide if you can prove that the defendant in your case is liable for economic and non-economic damages, and they acted with one of the following:


Does not include constructive fraud unless the intent is present


Ill will towards another person, causing intentional acts resulting in harm

Willful or wanton conduct

Intentional and conscious disregard and indifference towards another person’s rights and safety


Failing to act with a reasonable level of care, resulting in harm


Consciously disregarding risks, resulting in harm

If you believe you may qualify under one of these lawsuits, please contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at DeMayo Law Offices.

Filing a lawsuit in North Carolina

Most accident victims will begin by filing an insurance claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company to attempt to receive the maximum available settlement. If the insurance adjuster denies the claim or refuses to settle for a fair amount, the accident victim may then move forward with filing a civil lawsuit.

If you want to sue the negligent party for your injuries, you must adhere to a strict deadline, known as a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for most personal injury cases in North Carolina is three years. That means, barring an exception, you have three years from the accident date to sue; otherwise, you could lose your right to pursue financial compensation now and in the future.

Most personal injury lawsuits hinge on the legal theory of negligence. Negligence refers to one party’s failure to provide another a reasonable degree of care, leading to an injury. To base your case on negligence, you must show the following five elements existed at the time of your injury:

The at-fault party owed you a reasonable duty of care to prevent injury
Breach of duty
They breached their duty
You incurred damages
Cause in fact
If it wasn’t for their action or inaction, you wouldn’t have gotten hurt
Proximate cause
Their breach was a direct cause of your injury

Your North Carolina personal injury attorney from DeMayo Law Offices will work to gather the evidence we need to prove the other party’s negligence. You won’t be in this fight alone. We understand the uphill battle you are facing and assure you that we will take on the burden and handle every step of the legal process. Your only job will be to focus on your recovery.
