Call us today. 704-342-HELP. or visit us @ http://www.powmac.com/attorneys/billpowers/ Hi. I'm Bill Powers and I'm talking about statutes of limitations in North Carolina. Now one would not necessarily assume any wreck case or an auto accident case; a case for damages that a contract or a collection type of lawsuit would be necessary. In North Carolina, under chapter one, section 52, you have a limited amount of time to file suit. For example, if you're in an accident and the insurance company has seized your vehicle and is not willing to pay the full market value of that vehicle, you may have a claim under the goods or chattels provision under North Carolina General Statutes. You only have three years to file suit. As you might imagine, that's expensive and that can be time consuming. Please give us a ring at Powers & McCartan. The telephone number is (704) 342-HELP. We will help explain your different legal options when it comes to wrecks and collecting on your vehicle and tag, and things of that nature.
