A: I don't know what "dss" means, but in any case, a question on a NC limitations period must be asked of a NC attorney. Since your inquiry is indicated to be from Sebring, Fla., mostly Fla. attorneys (like me) will see your post. Also, legal advice on the filing deadline specific to your potential claim is something you must directly ask an attorney about, as online forum answers are for general information purposes, not legal advice to rely on. You may want to ask the North Carolina Bar Association if they can refer you to a lawyer for consultation.
