Time Limits for Filing a NC Car Accident Case

Typically, we can work to seek a settlement through the other driver’s insurance company. However, sometimes a just settlement is not possible through this route, and we will advise a client to take a case to court.

If it becomes necessary for us to file a personal injury lawsuit in your case, we can pursue compensation in a North Carolina state or federal court. The deadline for filing the initial paperwork to begin this legal action is three years from the date of your accident, according to the North Carolina General Statutes, two years if a death is involved, and different time limits may apply to minors, so be sure to consult a Raleigh personal injury lawyer.

Whiplash Injury Claims

We are able to document your recoverable losses. Some of the most common recoverable losses in car accident cases include:

  • Treatment, medical care, and prescriptions
  • Wages for missed work
  • Property damages and other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering damages

    Effects of Whiplash Injuries

    Whiplash is a relatively common injury, especially in rear-end car accidents. However, it is possible in any type of traffic accident. Whiplash occurs when the neck’s soft tissues, including ligaments and muscles, suffer injuries. The force of the accident whips the head back and forth, straining the neck beyond its normal range of motion. This movement can cause stretching, strains, sprains, and even tears in the affected soft tissues.

    In some cases, accident victims immediately experience pain and other symptoms of whiplash. In other cases, it may take hours or even days for these symptoms to appear.

    Whiplash injuries lead to symptoms that may include:

    • Severe neck pain
    • Reduced range of motion
    • Shoulder and upper back pain
    • Headaches
    • Dizziness
    • Fatigue
    • Emotional distress

    Some people heal from whiplash injuries in a few weeks. However, even in this case, you may have costly medical bills from your diagnosis and any necessary treatment.

    If your symptoms are not controlled by over-the-counter medication or if you have lasting symptoms, you may require additional treatment and support, including:

    • Prescription pain medications
    • Muscle relaxants
    • Physical therapy
    • Neck support, such as a brace
    • Cervical traction
    • Antidepressants and other mental health support

    If you received a whiplash diagnosis, whether you continue to have symptoms or not, you might be able to hold the at-fault motorist responsible for your injuries and seek compensation.
