"So say two statutes enacted by the General Assembly in 2011 as part of its revision of North Carolina’s self-defense law. G.S. 14-51.2(e) and G.S. 14-51.3(b) both state that a person who uses force as permitted by those statutes—in defense of home, workplace, and vehicle under the first statute and in defense of self or others under the second statute—“is justified in using such force and is immune from civil or criminal liability for the use of such force . . . .” What does this protection mean in criminal cases? No North Carolina appellate cases have addressed the self-defense immunity provision. This blog post addresses possible implications." John Rubin, UNC School of Government, see article here:

Case results depend on a variety of factors unique to each case and prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome. We handle some personal injury cases on a contingency fee bases, which means that no attorney fees are collected until we obtain a verdict or settlement, though our clients are ultimately responsible for costs and expenses associated with the preparation, presentation and handling of the case. We may agree to advance costs and expenses, which must be repaid at the conclusion of our representation.
