Generally, an injured Rhode Island resident must file a lawsuit in court within three years of an incident. This 3-year time period is called the statute of limitations. However, our personal injury lawyers will be able to advise you if your case falls under one of these common exceptions:
- The ’discovery rule’ - the time period begins when the negligence could reasonably have been discovered (particularly in medical cases, when it is difficult or impossible for a victim to become aware of medical negligence at the time it occurs)
- Injuries involving a minor child – the RI statute of limitations begins when a minor turns 18
- Cases involving a person under a disability in Rhode Island
- Contract actions – for example, uninsured motorist cases have a 10-year statute of limitations because the right to recovery is based upon an insurance contract
Finding a personal injury lawyer immediately after an injury occurs is best; however, don’t assume you aren’t entitled to compensation if you haven’t called right away. Our personal injury lawyers will gladly investigate whether your case may fall under one of these exceptions.
