I Was Not Driving And Was Injured In An Accident. Can I Receive Compensation?
When people are injured in car accidents, one of the biggest factors for determining whether they will receive compensation is whether they were at all responsible for the accident. In North Carolina, our contributory negligence laws prevent someone from receiving compensation if he or she is even 1 percent at-fault.
Passengers, however, are almost always entitled to compensation. Although there are instances when a passenger can be found at-fault, these are rare. Nevertheless, time is always an important factor, and the sooner you contact an experienced lawyer who handles injury cases, the better your chances of collecting compensation.
