Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

In most cases involving wrongful death, the statute of limitations in North Carolina is two years from the date of death. There are a number of exceptions to this rule. That’s why it’s important that you talk with a North Carolina wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible after your loved one’s passing.

Statute of Limitations: a deadline that determines the amount of time in which a claim must be either filed or resolved or before being barred from further action.
