What Can I Recover In a Car Accident Claim? Our Award-Winning Lawyers Explain

Miller Law Group Resources banner

Insurance companies train their adjusters to “leave out” details when dealing with you after a car wreck.

The less you know, the more they save. Sadly, under North Carolina, that’s legal.

Insurance companies cannot commit fraud, meaning they can’t simply lie to you, but if you don’t know what questions to ask, they don’t have to answer them for you, either.

In a car wreck, you’re entitled to recover money for some or all of the following, depending on the facts:

  1. Damage to your vehicle
  2. Loss of value of your vehicle
  3. Damage to personal property in your vehicle (phones, sports equipment, computers, etc.)
  4. Loss of use of the vehicle itself (usually paid as a rental car)
  5. Medical expenses
  6. Lost Income
  7. Compensation for pain and suffering
  8. Scarring
  9. Loss of use of part of your body
  10. Damage to your marital relationship

In some cases, you are also entitled to recover punitive damages, both for your physical injuries and for the damage to your vehicle (almost no adjusters know about punitives for your vehicle, and not that many lawyers, do, either.)
