North Carolina Personal Injury Law
North Carolina is a contributory negligence state. This means that you must not be at fault to recover for your personal injury. There are also time limits (See also Statute of Limitations) on how long you have to file a case.
The time limits are different for different types of personal injury cases, but, in general, you have three (3) years from the date of the accident. You must also file legal suit in the county of accident.
*Call us at (919) 615-3095 if your case type is not listed to see if we can offer legal representation.*
What can you recover?
The cost of accident-related medical bills, lost wages and Pain & Suffering are some of the types of compensation that you can receive from your personal injury case. According to NC Law, the at-fault parties (or their insurance companies) are responsible for compensating you for your accident-related medical treatment. If you miss time from work, the at-fault party should also pay for your time.
How do you measure pain & suffering? One of the biggest questions in NC Personal Injury cases is whether to accept the insurance companies’ offer or go through litigation. Having an experienced Wilson Personal Injury Lawyer recover your loses while advising you of the pro and cons of litigation.
