Another driver hit and hurt me in North Carolina. Do I have to give a sworn statement to the other driver’s insurance company? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

No. North Carolina law does not require victims of car crashes to provide written or recorded statements to insurance company representatives. 

While it is always advisable to contact and notify a potentially responsible driver‘s insurance company, you should not give a written or recorded statement without first obtaining legal advice from your own North Carolina personal injury lawyer.  

You may, at some point, want to give your own insurance company a written or recorded statement, but do not do so if you use the same insurer as the driver who hit and hurt you..
