Rhode Island Workers’
Need Assistance With a Work Related Injury?
Since 1999, every employer with regular employees in the state of Rhode Island has been required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you have been injured or become ill while on the job, you could be eligible for workers’ comp benefits to cover your expenses.
At Inman & Tourgee, our leading Rhode Island workers’ compensation attorney had been handling these cases for over 25 years—before the state’s workers’ comp law was even enacted. Our legal team has handled over 1,200 workers’ comp issues and helped countless families collect their benefits.

Secure Your Family’s Well-Being
After an injury on the job, you will need to notify your employer so they can file the workers’ compensation claim. The good news is that you don’t have to worry about the security of your job. Rhode Island maintains the Right to Reinstatement, which states that as long you are capable of returning to work, you are entitled to return to your position upon demand with few exceptions.
After you’ve alerted your employer, make sure to:
- Check the list of doctors provided
- Seek medical treatment as soon as possible
- Keep track of all your medical bills and documents
- Talk with a knowledgeable workers’ comp attorney about your case
While your employer may accept your workers’ compensation claim, their insurance might not be so easy. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to investigate the validity of your injury in an attempt to deny your benefits. You may find yourself the subject of recorded conversations and frequent requests for your medical records. Do not agree to any of these things before speaking with a Rhode Island workers’ compensation lawyer first!
