Understanding Personal Injury Law in North Carolina
If an individual has experienced a catastrophic injury due to someone else’s actions or negligence, they can bring a personal injury claim against the at fault party to seek monetary compensation.
For a plaintiff to win their lawsuit, they must meet three criteria:
- Duty of care: The defendant had a responsibility to act in a way that would prevent an injury or accident, such as following traffic laws to prevent a car accident.
- Breach of duty: The defendant acted in a way that was negligent or reckless, failing in their duty of care, such as running a stop sign.
- Cause of injury: The plaintiff’s injury was caused by the defendant’s breach of duty.
A jury must also look at how the accident occurred to determine if the plaintiff was in any way at fault. North Carolina follows the doctrine of contributory negligence, meaning that the plaintiff must have zero fault or responsibility related to the accident, and it was caused solely by the defendant.
For example, if the defendant was speeding and hit the plaintiff, who was walking, the fault would be primarily the defendant’s fault. However, if the plaintiff was not walking at the crosswalk, the jury may find the plaintiff to be partially at fault, so they would not be able to award damages. Often, insurance companies and their attorneys will show that the plaintiff was at fault in some way to avoid paying damages.
