A: A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Your post did not include a question, but it is clear you are wondering what to do. An attorney in any jurisdiction would probably want to know more before offering any input. Are you represented by an attorney? Are you being sued? How is liability split between you and the other side? Are you injured? Is the other side injured? Are you contemplating a claim?

An examination under oath, or sworn statement, could seem like a minor and small preliminary process at the outset of a case, but what goes on the record could come around to confront a person who made a statement two years later at trial. In my own practices, I accompany plaintiffs to all settings in which they are asked to provide statements, however small. Good luck
