There is a time limit for filing personal injury claims. In Rhode Island and neighboring Massachusetts, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the accident. Once this period expires, you will forfeit the right to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages. The longer you wait to contact an attorney, the closer you come to this deadline, and the more challenging it becomes for your lawyer to build a strong case based on evidence. By promptly involving an injury lawyer in Warwick, you increase your chances of maximizing the value of your claim and recovering the highest possible compensation.
Obtaining Compensation for Your Injuries
In Rhode Island, personal injury victims may be entitled to various types of compensation, also known as damages, depending on the specific circumstances of their case. The types of damages that can be recovered in a personal injury case include:
These are measurable monetary losses, including:
- Medical Expenses: Compensation for past, present, and future medical treatment, such as hospital bills, medication costs, rehabilitation expenses, and therapy sessions.
- Lost Wages: Reimbursement for income lost due to the injury, including missed workdays, reduced earning capacity, and potential future earnings.
- Property Damage: Compensation for repairs or replacement of damaged property, such as a vehicle in a car accident case.
These are subjective losses that are not easily quantifiable in monetary terms, including:
- Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish experienced as a result of the injury.
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Compensation for the inability to participate in activities and enjoy life as before the injury.
- Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the negative impact on the victim's relationship with their spouse, including loss of companionship, affection, and intimacy.
Comparative Negligence Principle
Rhode Island follows the principle of "comparative negligence." This means that if the injured party is found partially responsible for the accident or their injuries, their compensation may be reduced proportionately. However, if the injured party is found to be more than 50% at fault, they may be barred from recovering any damages.
