North Carolina is a contributory negligence state, which means that even if the injured party is any degree at fault, recovery is barred. Often in premises liability cases, the insurance company will almost reflexively deny the claim on the basis of contributory negligence. The defense will likely argue that there was a known hazard, and that the injured party failed to keep a reasonable lookout or contributed to the accident in other ways. The insurance company may also argue that the property owner did not know about the hazard.
