Call us today. 704-342-HELP. or visit us @ http://www.powmac.com/attorneys/billpowers/ Hi. I'm Bill Powers and if you or someone you care about needs to file suit for assault, battery or false imprisonment, a statute of limitations does apply. Now you can find this under chapter one, section 52 of the North Carolina general statutes. What that says is, you have three years to file suit to bring a complaint into courts of North Carolina or you forever waive your right to recover any amount. Now, this is a complicated area of law. Please give us a call at Powers & McCartan. We'll give you a free, confidential consultation, and we'll let you know whether you have a right to file suit and whether you have a legal cause of action. The telephone number is (704) 342-HELP, that's (704) 342-4357. We want to help you through this difficult time. Please give us a call.
