Today’s Durham Attorney and Greensboro Attorney blog post discusses the time frame you have to settle your insurance claim in North Carolina.
If you have any questions regarding the time frame you have to settle your insurance claim or file your lawsuit, then the first place you should be looking is at Chapter 1 of the North Carolina General Statutes. The time limit you have to settle your insurance claim or file your lawsuit is generally based on the statute of limitations for your type of claim, and the time frame depends on what kind of claim/lawsuit you have. For example, for a personal injury insurance claim (e.g., a car accident-related injury) you generally have 3 years from the date of your injury to file your lawsuit. If you were injured by libel or slander you generally have 1 year to settle your claim or file your lawsuit. As you can see, the time limit to settle your claim or file your lawsuit varies based on the type of case you have. As a result, take a look at the North Carolina Statute of Limitations located in Article 5 of Chapter 1 of the North Carolina General Statutes.
If you have any concerns about your insurance claim not settling within the Statute of Limitations you should contact an attorney immediately. If you are in North Carolina, you can contact our Durham Insurance Attorneys or Greensboro Insurance Attorneys free of charge with no obligation to hire us or come into our office by sending an email to email@example.com or calling (888) 820-5885.
