    Lot of questions and it sounds like not so many answers. This would be called a spoliation claim if proper notice, etc. was delivered. Do you have your own attorney that is representing your grandparents and yourself? If so, should probably direct these questions to your attorney. If you do no have an attorney, this forum is an excellent resource to find a qualified attorney.

    Definitely need to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. A couple of issues may include whether a binding waiver/release was signed and if it holds up in Court and North Carolina contributory fault laws. Definitely, contact a North Carolina lawyer soon.

  • I didn't feel any pain yesterday after the accident till late last night what can I do?

    We got hit by an 18 Wheeler yesterday, my dad got light headed and I didn't feel anything till last night and it got worse today. I don't know what to do.

    Daniel’s Answer

    Many times injuries do not show up immediately ... or within days of the crash, but you need to consider seekeing immedate medical care. As far as your father, "light headed" means that he suffered an alteration of consciousness which most likely, given the crash, indicates that he suffered a concussion or brain injury. He needs to get help too. Consider hiring an attorney that is knowledgeable about truck crashes (which really involve different dynamics and issues/rules than a car crash) and an attorney that has specialized knowledge about brain injuries. Best to both of you.

    Daniel’s Answer

    Definitely need to talk with a qualified North Carolina attorney. There are many factors that may influence whether you can recover. In part, North Carolina has a contributory negligence standard where 1% fault on your part may bar any recovery. Also, take photos of the area where the incident occurred.
