PERSONAL INJURY LAW
LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR BEST INTERESTS
If you have been injured because of another person’s or organization’s negligence, contacting one of our East Bay personal injury lawyers is the first step toward seeking redress.
It is important that anyone injured in the incident receives adequate and timely medical care for his or her injuries. We want all of our clients to seek treatment before litigation begins, as it helps us to ensure that all of your needs have been addressed and are included in the case.
THE KINDS OF PERSONAL INJURY REPRESENTATION WE PROVIDE
Our firm handles numerous personal injury cases, the most common areas of concern include:
- Premises liability cases, including slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall incidents, animal attacks, and dog bites
- Car crashes accidents
- Boating and waterway accidents
- Motorcycle accident injuries
- Recreational accidents involving places such as bars, nightclubs, hotels, amusement parks, beaches, and other public or private spaces
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Municipal accidents involving dangerous roads, sidewalks, areas of crime and other issues
In each of these cases, a legal duty was breached, and this breach caused you or your loved one harm. The law in Rhode Island was created so that people have the right to recover damages for their injuries in these situations. Our attorneys understand how the system works. Rather than trying to negotiate with the insurance companies alone, it is worth employing the counsel of an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your interests.
CALCULATING PERSONAL INJURY COMPENSATION
As Rhode Island is a comparative negligence state, fault may be applied to more than one party in an accident. The degree to which a party is at fault is used to calculate damages and compensation. Our attorneys will be open with you and your family about the options available to you, the range of compensation that may be possible and the process necessary to seek these damages.
There is a statute of limitations on personal injury cases, and when municipal entities are involved, it is imperative that a case is filed quickly. If you are even thinking about seeking compensation, you should speak to a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that your window of opportunity does not close.
