Abstract

This article is one in a series of articles in the Journal of Forensic Economics detailing the different and the common methods for assessing economic damages in the various states. In this article we discuss the legal framework by which economic damages are computed in personal injury and wrongful death cases in the state courts of North Carolina. The relevant state statutes, case precedents, and North Carolina Pattern Instructions (jury) are presented for the various aspects of a forensic economist’s work in estimating economic damages.
