North Carolina personal injury law is complex and covers a wide area of cases. If you have been injured, or lost a loved one, we encourage you to call us to discuss your case.
Personal injury law refers to civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct. In contrast to criminal law, a tort action does not involve the government prosecuting anyone. Civil cases involve an individual seeking compensation for the harm caused by anothers actions.
Most personal injury cases are based on the doctrine of negligence. In essence, negligence requires every member of society to act responsibly and avoid putting others at risk. That is not to say that negligence will result each time someone gets hurt. The doctrine recognizes that some accidents are unavoidable. In North Carolina there is another doctrine of Contributory negligence.
Contributory negligence is a doctrine of common law that says if a person was injured in part due to his/her own negligence by even % they are barred from any recovery.
