Fayetteville Injury Lawyers Ready to Fight for You
Fayetteville is the sixth-largest city in North Carolina, the seat of Cumberland County, and the home of Fort Bragg, one of the nation’s largest military bases. Fayetteville also lies at the crossroads of some very busy highways, including I-95, US 401, US 301, and highways 24, 210, and 295. All that traffic makes car, truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents common. In 2017 alone, 25 people were killed in Fayetteville motor vehicle crashes, including 7 pedestrians.

What to do After an Accident in Fayetteville
Accidents happen. But if another person or business is at fault, you deserve justice — and you may be entitled to compensation.
Before you do anything else, call 911 and seek medical attention for your injuries. Not only is this best to protect your health, safety, and well-being, but medical records form an important part of any personal injury case.
After seeking medical attention, complete these steps to protect your legal rights and begin building your personal injury case:
- Collect contact info — get names, email addresses, and phone numbers from all involved in the accident. Be sure to gather information for potential witnesses, too.
- Talk with the police officer — a police report is an important part of most personal injury cases. Be honest and accurate and remember that anything you say can and will be used against you.
- Photograph the accident site — Take photos of all injuries and evidence at the accident site. Document property damage and look for evidence that may support your case, including skid marks, debris, safety equipment in disrepair, or inaccurate road markings.
- Fill out necessary paperwork — depending on the type of injury, certain forms and reports may need to be filed. If you’ve been injured at work, you’ll need to complete Form 18 and your employer must complete and submit Form 19 to the NC Industrial Commission (NCIC). If you’re worried about your employer not submitting the required paperwork, you can file Form 18 directly with the NCIC. Talk with a worker’s compensation attorney for more information.
- Do NOT give a recorded statement to the insurance company — before making any statement to an insurance company, speak with an attorney. The insurance company has one primary goal: paying as little in compensation as possible. A rushed or ill-considered statement can undermine your case. What you say can and will be used against you later in a deposition or in court.
- Speak with a personal injury lawyer — what you do immediately following an accident can have a huge impact on the success of your personal injury case. In order to protect your legal rights and build the strongest case possible, contact a personal injury lawyer right away. At Riddle and Brantley, if we don’t think you need a lawyer we will tell you so.
Fayetteville Courthouse Information
Personal injury cases are filed and tried at the District Court or Superior Court of North Carolina’s court system. Many cases are settled without the need for a trial, but we are prepared to go to court if a settlement cannot be reached. The Cumberland County Courthouse is located at 117 Dick St, Fayetteville, NC.
Fayetteville Workers’ Compensation Information
Workers’ compensation hearings are often necessary to get benefits for an injured worker. Workers’ comp claims are handled by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. That agency resolves disputes related to an injury on the job, an illness acquired through work (occupational disease), or deaths at work.
Deputy Commissioner Hearings are held in various locations in eastern North Carolina, including Greenville, Williamston, Elizabeth City, Tarboro, Wilson, Benson, New Bern, Fayetteville, Burgaw, and Bolivia. The North Carolina Industrial Commission holds Full Commission Hearings in Raleigh at its offices at 430 N. Salisbury Street, Raleigh, NC 27603.
