There Are Deadlines on North Carolina Truck Accident Claims
There are deadlines in North Carolina (statute of limitations) that limit the timeline by which you have to file a lawsuit. In general, the North Carolina statute of limitations for truck accident personal injury cases is three years from the date of your physical injury to file a claim under G.S. § 1-52. If you are filing a wrongful death claim, you have two years from the date of your loved one’s death.
If you or your family member does not file within this timeframe, then you forfeit your right to compensation—with a few exceptions. Two or three years may seem like a significant amount of time, but there are risks in waiting to file a claim.
If the North Carolina statute of limitations ends before you file, you generally cannot file a lawsuit for compensation related to:
- Medical expenses
- Lost work wages, for time missed
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death benefits
- Punitive damages
- And more
The more time you spend waiting, the more evidence degrades over time. Moreover, until you file a claim, you will not be able to obtain financial compensation for your losses. A truck accident lawyer in Asheville can provide you with additional information so that you do not miss your opportunity.
