Statute of Limitations on Injury Claims
A statute of limitations is a law that imposes time limits on your right to file certain types of lawsuits. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations provides a three-year time limit for most personal injury lawsuits. The clock starts ticking on this three-year deadline on the date of the underlying incident that caused your injuries. However, if your injuries are not immediately obvious or develop over a long period of time, the three-year window may start on the date when you became aware or reasonably should have been aware of the injury.
If you wait until the three-year deadline has passed to file a lawsuit, your case will likely be thrown out by the court. You will also lose the advantage of threatening legal action in any insurance negotiations, effectively ending your chances of recovering compensation. An experienced Wadesboro personal injury attorney can make sure you do not miss any important deadlines and that your case is prepared to go to trial, if necessary.
