Handle Your Own Injury Case: Statute of Limitations
Brent Adams has created a series of videos offering information to North Carolina accident victims who may be interested in settling their injury case on their own. One of the important parts of the law that accident victims need to consider, both when they are retaining an injury attorney or if they are representing themselves, is the statute of limitations for negligence cases.
In this video, Raleigh injury lawyer Brent Adams explains how the North Carolina statute of limitations in car accident cases begins on the date the negligence occurred. Should you wait until just before the statute of limitations runs out? You may be able to settle the case on your own within a few months of the date of the accident, but victims do have three years from the date of the accident to decide whether they want to pursue litigation and retain an attorney for the process.
