Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
You can file a small claim if the amount of damages that you are seeking is under $10,000. That said, before doing so, you may also want to file a complaint with the NC Attorney General's Office. They have a consumer protections division that may be able to also assist you with this issue as well. If they cannot help, then you can move forward on a claim in small claims court.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
Please also rate my answer positively (4 or 5 stars) as well.
Best wishes going forward!
