Options When You’ve Been Injured On Someone Else’s Property
As you go through life, it’s easy to trust that owners of retail stores, hotels or restaurants or other places open to the public have done the right thing. They have taken steps to make sure their property poses no danger to you or others.
Often, that is the case, but sometimes it is not and someone is injured. An individual slips and falls on an object, an uneven, poorly maintained sidewalk or hazard in a parking lot — these situations have and do happen and often cause serious injury.
Recovery For Slip-And-Fall Injuries
If you have been injured by slipping and falling due to someone else’s negligence, you have legal options. Under North Carolina premises liability law, the person or entity responsible for your injury could be liable for compensation to pay for:
- Medical expenses, whether past, present or future
- Lost wages while you recover and cannot work
- Future wages that are lost due to your injury
- Emotional distress from the incident

Don’t Delay. You Have A Short Time To File Your Claim.
If you or a loved one suffered injury on another’s property, reaching out to a lawyer right away is crucial.
In North Carolina, injured parties have only three years to file a slip-and-fall lawsuit. This is known as the statute of limitations period. If you fail to file a claim within that time, you will be barred from any chance of recovery.
