Transcription: Call us today. 704-342-HELP. or visit us @ http://www.powmac.com/attorneys/billpowers/ Hi. I'm Bill Powers, Managing Partner of Powers & McCartan. You may have heard of something called a statute of limitations in North Carolina and frankly it's a very complicated area of law. Now, generally speaking, a statute of limitations means that if you don't file suite within an appropriate period of time, you lose your right to recover. In North Carolina, this is governed by chapter one, section 52 of the North Carolina General Statutes. If you have a trespass upon real property, which means that someone is violating your possessory interest in land, you have three years to file suit. Please give us a call at Powers & McCartan. The consultation is always free as well as confidential. Would love to help you.
