DO I HAVE A CASE?
Because every personal injury claim is different, it is vital that you contact an experienced attorney to determine if you have a case and may be entitled to compensation. In North Carolina, most injury lawsuits are based on the theory of negligence. This means:
- The liable party had a duty to act within a reasonable standard of care and not cause you harm.
- The liable party breached his or her duty by acting or failing to act, in a way that caused you harm.
- The liable party’s actions were a direct cause of your injuries.
- You suffered monetary damages because of your injury.
This can include a driver failing to obey speeding laws or a doctor failing to provide an acceptable level of care for a patient.
It is important to note, however, that if you are even partially to blame for the accident, you will not be able to recover any compensation, based on North Carolina’s pure contributory negligence law (Smith v. Fiber Controls Corp., 268 S.E.2d 504 (N.C. 1980)). There are some exceptions to this rule, with which our attorneys are familiar.
Through a free, no obligation consultation with our team, we will analyze the elements of your claim and help you determine if you have a legal case. We will advise you of all of your legal options and help you choose the route that is best for you.

WE HANDLE THE INSURANCE COMPANY FOR YOU
Most injury claims will initially be handled by an insurance company, either yours or the at-fault party. In the days and weeks following an accident and injury, the insurance company will investigate the incident and offer a settlement based what it thinks your injuries and damages are worth.
Often times these settlements are rushed and provide the least amount of compensation possible, which may not adequately cover the full expenses associated with your injuries.
By contacting a personal injury lawyer from the very beginning, we can advise you of what you should and should not say to the insurance company in order to benefit your claim. We can even handle all negotiations with the insurance provider to help ensure you get the maximum compensation you deserve.
In many cases, it may be necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking additional compensation. Our accomplished team will be able to guide you smoothly through that process.

TIME LIMITS ON FILING A CLAIM
It is important to note that you only have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit in North Carolina. The state’s statutes of limitations require that an injured person file a personal injury lawsuit within three years of the date of the injury or from when the person first noticed the injury. If the victim misses this period of time, they lose their opportunity to bring a claim and recover compensation.
However, if you have lost a loved one because of wrongful death, you must file a claim within two years of the person’s death.
If your injuries were caused by medical malpractice, you also only have two years to file a claim. The accrual of this time begins either from the date of the injury or from when the injury becomes apparent to the victim.
You also have three years to file a claim against the state government if a government entity or representative is liable for your injuries. These claims must be filed with the Industrial Commission within three years of the injury, according to N.C. Gen. Stat. section 143-299.
Our Charlotte personal injury lawyers are well-versed in North Carolina’s statutes of limitations and will guide you in making sure your claim is filed on time.
