Personal Injury Law in North Carolina
Personal injury is a specialized area of the law in North Carolina. If you have been in an accident resulting in serious injury that was due to someone else’s actions or negligence, you can bring a personal injury claim against the party who was at fault in order to obtain monetary compensation.
In order for you to win a personal injury claim, these three criteria must all be met:
- Duty of Care - The Duty of Care means that the defendant has a responsibility to act in a way that would have prevented an injury or accident. Examples of Duty of Care are:
- A proprietor of an establishment should provide a safe environment.
- All drivers of vehicles should follow safe driving practices.
- Healthcare providers should practice the highest level of medical care with all patients.
- Breach of Duty - Breach of Duty means that the defendant acted in a way that was negligent or reckless, failing in their Duty of Care. Examples of Breach of Duty are:
- A proprietor of an establishment has a loose rug and fails to secure it.
- A driver of a vehicle is distracted by their cell phone.
- A healthcare provider fails to practice the highest level of medical care.
- Cause of Injury - Cause of Injury means that the plaintiff’s injury was caused by the defendant’s breach of duty. Examples of Cause of Injury are:
- The loose rug in an establishment causes someone to trip and fall.
- A driver causes an accident due to being distracted by a cell phone.
- A healthcare provider causes an injury by not using the highest standard of care for a patient.
In addition to the three criteria that must be met to win a personal injury case, North Carolina follows the doctrine of Contributory Negligence as well. Contributory negligence means that the plaintiff must have had no fault or responsibility related to the accident; the accident must have occurred entirely from the defendant being negligent.
For example, let’s say that the defendant was speeding and hit the plaintiff who was walking. The fault would be primarily on the defendant if the plaintiff was doing everything right such as walking with the light or walking in a crosswalk.. But, if the plaintiff was not walking at the crosswalk or was walking against the light, a jury may find the plaintiff to be partially at fault and therefore not award damages. Many times, insurance companies and their attorneys will attempt to show that the plaintiff was at fault in some way to avoid paying damages.
