North Carolina Statute of Limitations North Carolina Death Accident
North Carolina has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. A civil lawsuit must be filed within the three years from the date of the accident if anyone was injured and the same timeline is for if there was vehicle damage. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within two years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. North Carolina follows a “shared fault” and a doctrine known (in legalese) as “contributory negligence”. This means, in an accident, if you share any of the fault then you will not receive any compensation.
