Accidents happen, but sometimes they result in the physical injury of innocent people. Our firm seeks justice on behalf of individuals injured by the negligent actions of others.
What is Personal Injury?
If you have been hurt in an accident and sustained an injury, you may be entitled to compensation from the party at fault. Even if you were partially at fault for your injury, you can still recover damages. It is always recommended that you hire an experienced personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim so you can be sure you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible. It's also imperative to speak to an attorney as soon as possible because Rhode Island has a three year statute of limitations on personal injury claims.
Damages Available in Personal Injury Cases
Payment of Medical Bills
Payment of medical bills for any treatment sought due to the accident. The victim is entitled to the full cost of any medical expenses regardless if health insurance covered the treatment.
Compensation for any property loss or damage sustained in the accident.
Pain & Suffering
Compensation for pain and suffering the victim endured due to the injury. Typically, this is the only subjective type of damage because there is no magic formula or calculator to compute pain and suffering.
Compensation for any current or future lost wages the victim missed or will miss due to the injury.
