Understanding Injury Accident Cases

NC Currituck CountyIf you’ve been injured in an accident, collecting all of the important information is key.  It is very important to record as much information as possible, including the time, date, location, a detailed description of what happened, the contact information for any witnesses, and any information you have about the responsible person(s).  You should also refrain from signing any documents or speaking to the responsible person’s insurance company until you have consulted with an attorney yourself.  Sometimes, even helpful information you provide after an accident can later be used against you.  If you have signed any documents or spoken to the responsible party or their attorney, be sure to let your attorney know when you first speak to him. To successfully recover damages from the person or company who caused the accident, you must be able to show that the person or company was negligent, which means that you must be able to show: 

  • That the person who caused the injury owed you a legal duty at the time
  • That the person who caused the injury failed to carry out that duty
  • That you suffered damages, or were injured in some fashion, and
  • That these damages were caused as a result of this person’s failure to carry out his or her duty
