Aggressively Fighting for Compensation
If you were injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence or mistake, you might be entitled to monetary compensation. North Carolina Courts can award injured plaintiffs to help them pay for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Courts can also order the wrongdoer to pay for a victim's loss of companionship or loss of enjoyment of life. In some cases, Courts may even award Punitive Damages, which are monetary awards intended to punish the party that caused the accident.
While costs associated with medical bills or property damage may be readily assessed, other damages are often difficult to identify and quantify. The personal injury lawyers at Arnold & Smith, PLLC are trained and experienced in developing and building personal injury claims on behalf of injured plaintiffs. If you have been injured, it is imperative that you contact an experienced litigator as soon as possible to begin crafting your claim. Arnold & Smith, PLLC can help you track and organize the costs and expenses associated with your injury to make sure the person or entity that injured you is held accountable for every last dime.
