What to do if you’ve been injured
If you’ve been injured and believe another person or company’s negligence is responsible, there are a few important steps to take in order to protect your legal rights.
***IMPORTANT: Before completing any of the steps below, be sure to call 911 and seek medical attention for any injuries. Not only is this best for your health and well-being, but a doctor’s report and medical records will be critical to your personal injury claim.
- Exchange contact information — if you’ve been injured in an accident, exchange contact information with all other parties involved, including any witnesses.
- Talk with the police and get a police report — in most cases, such as with car, truck or motorcycle accidents, a police report is critical to filing a successful personal injury claim or lawsuit.
- Do NOT give a statement to an insurance company — insurance companies are interested in paying as little compensation as possible. You should only talk with an insurance company after consulting with a personal injury lawyer.
- If injured at work, complete the necessary forms — to file a worker’s compensation claim, you must fill out Form 18. Your employer should complete Form 19 and submit to the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC). If you are concerned your employer will not submit these forms, you may submit Form 18 directly to the NCIC.
- Contact a personal injury attorney — a personal injury lawyer can help determine whether or not you have a legal case and advise you on how to navigate the entire process.
