The insurance company says I was partly to blame for causing the crash. Can I still pursue a personal injury claim?

North Carolina personal injury law follows an archaic and unjust rule called contributory negligence. Under that rule, car insurance companies can deny injury coverage to people who are even 1 percent responsible for causing a crash.

You can still pursue a personal injury claim when insurance company representatives accuse you of contributory negligence, but you will need to partner with an experienced car accident injury victim’s attorney who knows how to collect, organize and present evidence to end doubt over the other driver’s fault.
