What Is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents in NC?

According to the North Carolina General Statutes section 1-52, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in North Carolina is three years. This means that you have three years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you will lose your opportunity to pursue compensation for your suffering.

It’s important to note that there are exceptions to this law that can change the amount of time you have to file. It’s important to speak to an attorney about the specifics of your case to learn about your rights and options. Call our firm today if you have any questions about how the statute of limitations might affect your case.

Who Is Liable After a Car Accident in North Carolina?

North Carolina is one of the few states that follows an “at fault” system when it comes to car accidents. This means that the person responsible for causing an accident is the person whose insurance pays for any damages that result from the collision.

North Carolina’s fault laws also mean that any driver who bears responsibility, no matter how small, in causing the accident is unable to recover compensation. In cases like this, drivers who have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance can use their coverage to cover expenses related to their injury.

Is PIP Coverage Required in North Carolina?

Unlike most states who follow an at-fault system, North Carolina does not require that all drivers have PIP coverage. If you do have this coverage, it may be necessary to work with an attorney to ensure your insurance company is giving you the fair compensation you deserve.

North Carolina’s car accident laws can be complex and confusing. If you have been in an accident an attorney from our firm can help you navigate the complex legal system and inform you of your options. You have nothing to lose, initial consultations are free.

Can You File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?

Usually once you accept an insurance settlement it is difficult to recover anymore compensation. The main reason for this is that most insurance settlements specifically state that the amount agreed upon will be the only money the company will pay out.

This is why it is so important to speak with an attorney before signing a settlement. If you have already signed an agreement, you may still have options. Speak to an attorney at our firm about the specifics of your case, and get started today.
