North Carolina Personal Injury Overview

Personal injury law involves civil claims in which an individual is injured through the negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct of another person, a company, or property owner. A personal injury lawsuit may arise from physical or emotional injuries. Personal injury law compensates individuals injured as a result of another's negligence or intentional misconduct. Personal injury laws vary from state to state. If you believe you have a personal injury claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in North Carolina to evaluate your claim.

North Carolina follows a pure contributory negligence system.  With this system, if two or more people are in an accident, the injured person is only able to recover for his or her injuries and damages if he or she did not contribute to the accident in any way, even if it was only a very slight factor.  For example, if Dave and Debbie were in an accident where Jane was injured, and Jane was only 5% at fault, she would recover nothing.

A statute of limitations is a type of law that restricts the period of time that a person may initiate legal proceedings.  Time limits can vary depending on the type of case and the state where the particular cause of action occurred. To learn more about statutes of limitations, read our Statute of Limitations page. To see a state by state comparison chart for the personal injury statute of limitations for each state, read our Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Actions page.

North Carolina Statutes of Limitations

In North Carolina, the courts follow the common law doctrine of joint and several liability, where each defendant is jointly and severally liable for the entire amount of the financial judgment.  Any defendant named in the judgment is liable to the plaintiff for the entire amount, regardless of his or her share of the fault.
