- Current medical bills

- Permanent injury or disability
- Household and vehicle modifications - wheelchair ramps, lifts, etc.

Wrongful Death Compensation
In the unfortunate event that you lose a loved one due to injury, you may be entitled to compensation for any of the following damages:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering of the deceased before they died
- Loss of future income
- Loss of future benefits, such as medical benefits, retirement, etc.
- Loss of affection, love, companionship, etc.
- Loss of household services the deceased performed, such as childcare, bookkeeping, property maintenance, etc.
Keep in mind that North Carolina is a contributory negligence state. This means that the injured party can collect NO compensation if they share any fault, no matter how little, for their injury. Suppose another driver ran a red light and hit your car. If it could be proven that you were speeding at the time of the accident, or had a burned out headlight, and that this contributed to causing the collision, you could be deemed two percent at fault for the accident and thus not receive any compensation. This is another reason why you need a seasoned attorney handling your case.
