Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyers

The purpose of a civil lawsuit is not limited to compensation for injuries, but also to help ensure that people and companies are held accountable for negligent conduct. This helps keep harmful conditions from occurring again and causing needless injury to others.

The Rhode Island personal injury lawyers at Decof, Barry, Mega & Quinn, P.C. handle cases that make a difference, not only to our clients, but also to our community. We work entirely on “contingent fee” arrangements, which means our clients do not pay any fees unless we are successful. We represent individuals and families, and never represent insurance companies or large corporations. Most of our clients have experienced the most significant injury or illness they will ever suffer, and therefore require the extraordinary experience, skill, and dedication of our attorneys.

Review the links and pages included here to see the many types of personal injury, wrongful death, and medical negligence cases we handle. You can also call our offices at any time for a free, confidential consultation at (401) 200-4059.
