Personal injury cases take a variety of forms. Here is one typical scenario: You have been injured by someone’s bad choices. Now what? You did not want to be injured. You have to decide to hire a lawyer. You want to find someone knowledgeable and someone you trust. How much will a lawyer help? Can I do this on my own? These and many other questions go through your head.
Even though you did not cause the accident or want to be injured, in filing a personal injury claim North Carolina Law says the burden of proof is on you. That means that it is up to you to show exactly what caused your accident, how it should have been prevented, the extent and effect of your injuries, and identify all the economic consequences. Presenting an organized claim is essential to your success. An attorney experienced in handling claims can help you present an organized claim.
An organized claim will:
- Identify the elements of negligence and breaches in the standards of care acquired;
- Clearly identify the areas of harm;
- Identify the full consequences of the injuries;
- Will argue your case to the adjustor based on the law that allows you to receive full and fair recovery.

It is important that personal injury and wrongful death claims to be assembled and filed relatively soon after the crash or incident has occurred in order to preserve as much evidence as possible. Although many claims may be filed two or three years after an accident, it is preferable and wisest for you to speak to a lawyer within thirty (30) days. This allows us as your lawyer to talk to witnesses and begin collecting evidence to support and strengthen your case.
