In North Carolina, if you are considered 1% negligent or 1% at fault in an accident, then your claim could be denied. It is absolutely critical when you’ve been injured, to first seek medical help, then contact an attorney so they can help you fight any allegations of contributory liability and secure the damages you deserve.
