Contributory negligence in North Carolina


This blog spends a lot of time talking about car accidents and the harm that they can cause to victims. This is significant, as those injured in a wreck can face years, decades or even a lifetime of physical and emotional pain and suffering, as well as debt incurred via medical expenses and lost wages. Though those whose injuries are caused by a negligent driver may want to take legal action, they might be concerned about whether their own fault will affect their ability to recover compensation. We hope this post will help shed light on the subject.

Medical and funeral expenses can leave a surviving family burdened with debt, and the loss of a family's wage-earner could make it tough to pay other bills and keep food on the table.
