Contributory Negligence on the Construction Law Project in North Carolina

less-

I’m sometimes asked if the percentage of “fault” is something that a client can rely on to reduce the amount of money they may owe on construction project gone bad. The short answer: no. Unlike in many other jurisdictions, in North Carolina, if you are even 1% liable for the damages on a project, you can be hit with 100% of the damages.
