Injuries in Cary
Cary is one of the fastest-growing cities in North Carolina, and was recently ranked by Money Magazine as the #5 Best Place to Live in the United States. Cary’s in-city population is around 170,000 residents which places it in the number 7 position in North Carolina. Cary is located in two counties, mostly Wake county but a small portion in Chatham county. It is surrounded by some dangerous roads including I-40, US 64, US 55, US 54 and US 1. Unfortunately, with all that growth and popularity comes more traffic, more construction, and more accidents and injuries.
Whether you’ve been injured in an auto accident, a slip and fall, workplace accident, or some other incident, a personal injury lawyer with experience in Cary can help determine whether or not you have a case for a claim or lawsuit.
Here are just a few of the many things an experience injury attorney can help with:
- Investigating the accident location and collecting evidence
- Locating witnesses and obtaining statements
- Preparing you to give statements to law enforcement and insurance companies
- Filing a personal injury lawsuit
- Court filings
- Negotiating with the insurance company
- Mediation or arbitration
- Setting up trusts for long-term care

An injury lawyer and his or her staff can even assist with finding you the best medical care possible, and help manage your medical bills.

What to do if you’ve been injured in an accident
***Before you do anything else, be sure to call 911 and seek immediate medical attention for any injuries.
In addition to ensuring your health, safety, and well-being, this is important for a potential personal injury case as the medical records will likely play a significant role in you case.
After seeking medical attention, take the following steps:
- Obtain contact information — get the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of anyone involved in the accident.
- Take photographs — take photos of any injuries and the crash or accident scene, and be sure to document any evidence such as skid marks, debris, or missing signage.
- Complete any necessary forms or reports — if you’re injured at work or on a business’ property, file a formal report. For injuries at work, you must complete Form 18 and your employer must complete Form 19 and submit both to the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC).
- Talk with the police officer — if a police officer is on the scene, answer their questions honestly, keeping in mind that anything you say can and will be used against you. Following the accident, obtain the police report.
- Talk with potential witnesses — talk with and collect contact information from any potential witnesses.
- Do NOT give a statement to an insurance company — before giving any recorded statement, consult with a personal injury lawyer.
- Contact a personal injury lawyer — if you have a potential case, the actions you take immediately following the accident can have a significant impact on the outcome. Talk with an experienced attorney right away in order to protect your legal rights and start building your case.
