What to Expect During a Personal Injury Case
First of all, it is important to note that
the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in Rhode
Island is three years. The sooner you
hire an attorney to represent you, the better your chances will be of receiving maximum
compensation. An attorney can help you deal with your insurance company,
telling you what to say so you don't accidently jeopardize your case.
An attorney can also help investigate your injury, compiling evidence
that can be used later in court or for a settlement.
Another aspect of personal injury cases to be aware of is comparative fault. It is not uncommon for the negligible party to claim that you are partially
at fault for the injury.
The comparative fault rule in Rhode Island is used to reduce the amount
of recovery you receive by the percentage you are deemed liable for. Our personal injury lawyers are dedicated to providing you with the maximum
amount of compensation you deserve, by proving that you are not at fault,
or are only minimally at fault for the incident that caused your injury.
After your personal injury claim has been filed, our legal team will pursue
compensation from all negligible parties involved. Our leading attorneys
have successfully settled cases in and out of court. There are numerous
types of personal injury suits filed through the Rhode Island court system,
and our lawyers have experience with nearly everyone. While settlements
are the most common way to receive compensation,
our attorneys are not afraid to take your case to trial if we believe you
are not being offered a fair settlement.
