You might expect us at the North Carolina injury law firm of Brent Adams & Associates to say the first step in winning your personal injury claim is to call us. While there is no doubt calling a skilled Raleigh injury lawyer who has successfully handled a large number of cases is definitely something you should do as soon as possible, there are a few other important details to think about before you even pick up the phone.
It may sound too obvious, but the first thing you need to do is remain calm. Failing to remain as composed as possible could not only exacerbate the severity of your injury, but also make it more difficult for you when it comes time to gather the details needed to build a strong case.
Also, besides remaining calm, it is imperative to save any documents such as medical records, legal records, company information, or anything else relevant to your North Carolina accident injury. The more prepared you are to provide this information to an injury lawyer, the better your odds of winning and protecting your rights.
Common Injury Claims
The most common personal injury claims are those involving motor vehicle collisions. The negligence of just one person behind the wheel can cause untold damage and heartache. In 2009 alone, there were approximately 39,500 automobile-related fatalities in the United States, over 1,300 of which were in North Carolina. Those statistics speak of too much negligence on the roadways. Our Raleigh injury lawyers have relationships with experts including engineers, reconstruction experts, biomechanics, and economists who can properly evaluate and assist us in handling your motor vehicle collision case.
