In North Carolina, in order to make a recovery for personal injuries or wrongful death, a plaintiff must prove the defendant was negligent in causing injury. If in response, a defendant can prove the plaintiff was also partially at fault, then the plaintiff can recover nothing. This rule has a very narrow exception called last clear chance (see also—last clear chance, comparative negligence).
