Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims

Like all states, North Carolina has a statute of limitations on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you were injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. This may not sound like a tight deadline at first. However, when you factor in the amount of time it could take to recover from your injuries, gather the information you need to file a claim, and go through one or more rounds of negotiations with the insurance company, three years can go by fast.

If you fail to act before the three-year time limit expires, you will lose your ability to demand compensation for your injuries, no matter how strong your underlying claim may be.
