Time Limit for Filing a Claim in North Carolina
All personal injury claims have a time limit called the statute of limitations. If you want to pursue a civil lawsuit against the person or corporation who caused your auto accident you must file your claim before the statute of limitations expires or your claim will be rejected. In North Carolina, the time limit for injury and property damage claims is three years. In cases of a fatal car accident, the family of the deceased only has two years to file a wrongful death claim.
