In North Carolina, you may have a right to file a lawsuit for defamation (often referred to as “libel” for written words, and “slander” for spoken words) when someone makes a false statement about you to others which damages your reputation. Defamation claims are unique among civil causes of action in that in some instances, depending on the nature of the statement, the Court will instruct the jury to presume that a plaintiff’s reputation has been financially harmed. These claims must be filed quickly after the false statement is made, so if you think you have a defamation case it is important you contact an attorney immediately. Parton Law is experienced in litigating defamation cases in the modern digital age, and understands that each client’s reputation is valuable. Parton Law stands ready to fight for you and zealously defend your reputation when it has been harmed.
