Most North Carolina residents know that they have the right to pursue compensation after motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent or reckless drivers. However, many victims of pedestrian accidents are unaware that they have the same right.
If you have suffered an injury in a pedestrian accident, you may have the right to seek compensation under North Carolina tort laws. At Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC, our founding attorney, Lyndon R. Helton, has focused his career on protecting the rights of injured victims in Hickory and the surrounding area for decades, and he will work to ensure the protection of your rights as well.
If you are a victim of a pedestrian accident, answering only a few simple questions can help determine whether you are eligible to pursue compensation:
If you answered yes to ANY of the above questions, you may have a case for personal injury compensation. If you did not answer yes to any of the above, you may still have a case. We can review your accident report and make an initial determination about your eligibility.
Although North Carolina’s statute of limitations for personal injury negligence cases is three years from the date of the negligent act, time is still of the essence. By evaluating your specific set of circumstances as soon as possible after your accident, we have a better chance of finding evidence to support your case. Oftentimes, there is substantiating proof present at the scene, and the chance of finding anything we can use in court diminishes as time passes. Witnesses are often more likely to talk sooner rather than later.
