Friday Thought of The Day

Did you know that, in NC, even if you are hurt by someone else’s negligence, if the other person can prove you are just a little bit to blame for your injury, you are barred from any recovery?  That’s right…someone else is 99.9% to blame and you get zero recoveries.  This is called contributory negligence, and it is an issue that people don’t know or care about until they face the problem themselves.  One of the problems with contributory negligence is that it often hinders people seeking legal help.  Lawyers who represent injured people know that they could spend years working on a case and lose everything at trial simply because a jury felt the Plaintiff may have played some very small part in causing the accident.  Just four states – North Carolina, Virginia, Alabama, and Maryland – still hang on to the concept of contributory negligence.
