Is there a cap on the amount of damages a victim may receive?

As of 2011 in North Carolina, the cap for medical malpractice damages is $500,000 for noneconomic damages. Exceptions may be made if the defendant’s conduct was extremely poor and the damage to the plaintiff is extremely severe, such as in intentional acts or gross negligence that led to death or permanent injury.
