Statute of Limitations

May 3rd, 2016

The period of time in which a legal claim must be made is the statute of limitations. If a claim is brought forth after the statute of limitations deadline, it is barred by law. In most North Carolina personal injury cases, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of injury. In most North Carolina wrongful death cases, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of death. There are exceptions to these general rules.
