Why Did Your Auto Accident Happen?

One minute you may be riding to the store and the next you’re in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. An auto accident can happen in the blink of an eye for many different reasons. Listed below are some of the most common causes of car wrecks we see. If another driver caused your crash due to one of the following reasons or any other negligent actions, call us today for help!

Statute of Limitations in North Carolina

The statute of limitations is a law that governs the amount of time an individual has to file a lawsuit against the other party. This law varies from state to state, so it’s important to be aware of the law in the state where you reside, as it may affect your claim.

The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits in North Carolina is three years, according to the North Carolina General Assembly. This means you have three years from the time of your accident to file a lawsuit against the other party.

While car accident claims are typically able to be settled outside of the courtroom, the statute of limitations is important in the event that a fair settlement cannot be reached and you need to pursue a lawsuit.

Let’s say you got whiplash from a car accident on University Parkway, a busy road in Winston-Salem. You waited almost three years to take legal action and your neck still hurts. Then, you decided to file an insurance claim but haven’t been able to get the full amount you deserve from the insurance company. Three years have now passed since your accident and you need to file a lawsuit because the insurance company isn’t treating you fairly. Unfortunately, you’re outside of the statute of limitations and likely won’t be able to receive compensation. This is why it’s vital to seek legal counsel as soon as possible after your accident. Our Winston-Salem car accident lawyers know the laws in North Carolina and can help ensure you don’t miss your chance of obtaining the compensation you deserve.

Proving Negligence

If you were hurt in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you have the legal right to seek compensation for your losses. However, you will be claiming that the accident was someone else’s fault and you have to be ready to prove it. In order to have a successful claim, you will have to demonstrate that the other party was negligent in his/her actions.

To prove negligence, you must:

  • Prove that the other party owed a duty of care.
  • Prove that the other party breached that duty of care by acting in a way that showed a wanton disregard for the safety of another person/property.
  • Prove your accident was a direct result of the other party’s negligent behavior.
  • Prove your injuries were a direct result of the accident.

Without an experienced attorney on your side, it can be difficult to determine liability. Call us today and we’ll walk you through every step of this important legal process.
