Types of Personal Injury Litigation We Handle

Our lawyers represent accident victims who have sustained a wide variety of personal injuries. The following are but a few examples of the personal injury claims we are prepared to take on:

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

If someone else – an individual, a business or an agency – acts carelessly or fails to act, and it results in an accident that hurts you, you may have the right to seek compensation in a personal injury claim in North Carolina. The insurance company that covered the at-fault party is typically responsible for paying a valid claim. Although the personal injury attorneys at Warren & Kallianos are always prepared to take a case to trial, most claims are settled during out-of-court negotiations.

If an insurance company or other responsible party cannot be persuaded to make a reasonable settlement offer, Jeff and Chris stand ready to deliver aggressive client advocacy in court.

What You Could Recover in a Charlotte Personal Injury Claim

Every personal injury claim is different, and the unique factors present in your situation will affect the type and amount of compensation you may be able to recover. For example, the answers to questions like these could impact your recovery:

  • How serious were your injuries?
  • How much did it cost to treat your injuries?
  • How many days of work did you miss and how much are you paid?
  • What types of insurance coverage are available and what are the policies’ limits?
  • Will you need ongoing treatment and, if so, how much will it cost?
  • Did your injury leave you with any permanent disabilities that will prevent you from working or require personal assistance?

There are some general categories of damages that are frequently available in personal injury claims. These include:

  • Payment of all medical bills related to your personal injury, including ongoing costs and anticipated bills for future treatment.
  • Compensation for missed time from work – even if you were able to take paid sick leave – and compensation for diminished earning capacity due to impairments related to your personal injury.
  • The cost to repair or replace personal property damaged in the accident.
  • Payment for household assistance if you are unable to perform the tasks of daily living due to your injuries
  • Payment for assistive devices – for example, a wheelchair or a hospital bed – to help you deal with impairments due to your injury.
  • Compensation for your pain, suffering and emotional distress related to your injuries.
  • Compensation for scarring and permanent disfigurement.
  • Loss of consortium damages for your spouse.
  • Punitive damages (in exceptional cases).

Medical Treatment and Recovering from an Accidental Injury

Your first priority after suffering a personal injury should be your health and your physical and emotional recovery. In order to have the best chance at a full recovery, it is important to seek medical help as soon as possible after the accident. If you don’t receive emergency medical treatment on the scene and you aren’t transported to a hospital, you should still seek treatment at an urgent care center, an emergency room or at your doctor’s office as soon as you can.

There are many kinds of potentially serious injuries that may not be immediately apparent after an accident. Also, the rush of adrenaline from the shock of an accident may mask pain and other symptoms of a personal injury. Some “silent” injuries may cause long-term impairment or even death if they are not diagnosed and treated promptly. Be sure to seek treatment and tell the doctor exactly what happened and all of your symptoms. This is no time to play it tough or keep a stiff upper lip.

As you recover from your injuries, carefully follow the medical advice you receive. Follow through with recommended treatments by specialists. Be sure to take medications as prescribed, go to any appointments and take part in physical therapy as prescribed. If you are unable to make it to an appointment because you are in too much pain from your injury, be sure to tell that to the office when you call to cancel.
