Injuries in car accidents and tractor-trailer/truck accidents are an unfortunate fact of life for northeastern North Carolina, which is criss-crossed by numerous highways and Interstate 95 (I – 95) leading south from the Virginia border near Roanoke Rapids into the heart of North Carolina. Likewise, US Routes 17, 13 and 64 traverse northeast North Carolina for those traveling between the Outer Banks, Rocky Mount, Wilson, Greenville Havelock, Kinston and other cities and towns of North Carolina.
If personal injuries occur in a car or truck accident, and if the action is filed in the state courts of North Carolina, generally a three-year statute of limitations applies to such actions. You should consult a North Carolina licensed injury lawyer to determine specific advice for your potential claim, especially if you are a resident of North Carolina and if your accident happens in Virginia or a neighboring state.
The North Carolina/Virginia licensed injury lawyers with our law firm have vast experience with helping clients recover their lost medical expenses, lost wages or earnings, but more importantly, in serious cases our lawyers know how to gather and present medical evidence relating to permanent injuries. Injuries to various parts of the body such as the spine, back, neck, shoulder, or other areas require analysis of the medical condition so we can determine what type of evaluation (and evidence) should be obtained to best present the case.
We have written numerous, legal informational articles on car and truck accident cases on the “sister” Virginia Beach Injuryboard blog, and on the Norfolk Injuryboard blog, as well as our law firm website.
