At Maurer Law, we will be with you every step of the way as we guide you through the process of seeking compensation and fight to get you fair compensation you deserve. Understanding Personal Injury Law in North Carolina
Personal injury is a complicated legal matter in North Carolina because the injured party, or plaintiff, must prove a preponderance of evidence that the defendant’s failure to use appropriate care is the sole reason for the accident. For example, if a car accident is caused by an individual running a red light because they were distracted or whose brakes were in disrepair and collided with another vehicle, they would be at fault. However, North Carolina is a “contributory negligence” state, meaning that if a plaintiff was in any way responsible for an accident, they will be barred from recovering damages.
Defendants whose careless conduct resulted in an accident will fight back to avoid penalties and minimize liabilities, often attempting to invoke the contributory negligence principle. An experienced personal injury lawyer will anticipate this strategy and ensure proper evidence to show that the accident was 100 percent the defendant’s fault. At Maurer Law, we will investigate your case and properly negotiate or litigate as needed to ensure the truth comes out and you receive a favorable verdict or settlement.
