Working With Providence Personal Injury Attorneys
Dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be difficult and confusing. If you or a loved one have recently been injured by another person or group in or near Providence, your rights are protected by law. These rights entitle you to compensation for the losses you have sustained. Marasco & Nesselbush can help you ensure that your rights are respected and that you obtain just compensation to help you on your way to recovery.
The effect an accident has on your life likely goes beyond physical damages. As a result of your injuries, you may have sustained significant financial losses due to the required medical treatment and rehabilitation. Not being able to work for an extended period can put further pressure on your budget. We understand that in this trying time, your priority is to regain not only your health but also your emotional and financial stability.
It is natural to feel the need to see those who wronged you or your family held accountable for their negligent, careless, or reckless behavior. Put simply, it is a matter of justice. Marasco & Nesselbush personal injury attorneys in Providence firmly believe that justice can be served to you and your family by means of a successful personal injury claim.
How Does a Personal Injury Claim Work?
A personal injury claim revolves around two basic issues – damages and liability. Damages are the losses you have experienced – physical, financial, and emotional. Liability means that a certain party – a person, a group of people, or a company – is responsible for these damages. For example, you might have been injured in a motor vehicle accident or in an incident at your workplace. Alternatively, you may have suffered injury, or prolonged or worsened illness due to medical malpractice. You may have suffered because of a defective product or a preventable danger on public or private property. In any of those cases, your first step is to file a personal injury claim in which you identify the responsible party and then prove their fault in causing your damages. Once this has been established, you may be able to obtain financial compensation for your losses – either through an informal settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company or – if such settlement cannot be achieved – by a jury verdict following a court case.
How Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help Me?
As you might imagine, obtaining compensation for your losses is not as straightforward as it may seem. To succeed, you will need an attorney experienced in personal injury law to guide you through the process and to fight for your legal rights. Our Providence attorneys will support you by taking care of all the legal aspects of your claim. That means that you can focus completely on what is most important for you right now – your physical and emotional recovery.
Your Marasco & Nesselbush personal injury attorney possess the knowledge and experience needed to overcome obstacles in resolving your claim. For example, even if you know who caused your accident and how it happened, that person or group of people may try to evade responsibility. In addition, their insurance company is likely to try to minimize your damage or completely invalidate your claim. They may attempt to convince you to settle for compensation much lower than the value of your claim. They may even try to trick you into making statements that can be used against you.
Understandably, all of this may seem intimidating. Our attorneys, however, have years of experience in dealing with these kinds of tactics. Your attorney will represent your interests with intelligence and passion, making sure that you are compensated fairly for your damages.
Here is a concise list of the aspects of the claim your attorney will take care of:
- evaluate the full extent of the damage you have sustained and assess its value
- help you keep track of your medical documentation
- assist you in gathering evidence and contacting witnesses in order to build a strong case
- negotiate with insurance companies
- represent you in court if negotiations fail
Why Should You Work With Marasco & Nesselbush PI Attorneys in Providence?

A local law firm like Marasco & Nesslebush LLP is the best fit for your case because they will have a wide breadth of experience in representing people with circumstances similar to yours.

If expert testimony is required for your case, a local attorney will know where to look for the most professional and experienced experts. In addition, if your case goes to court, a local lawyer will know how to present your case in order to achieve the best results. A personal injury attorney from Providence may even know the lawyers of the at-fault party and may have worked against them previously, making them better prepared to represent you now.
First and foremost, our Providence attorneys view their clients as their neighbors in need. We will treat you with personal interest and compassion, making sure that all your concerns are heard and your needs are taken care of. We vow to represent your case to the best of our ability and help you on your way to recovery – not only financially but also physically and emotionally.
Have you ever heard the expression: “jack of all trades, master of none”? It’s similar with personal injury practice areas. The circumstances surrounding accidents and mishaps can vary widely. Because of that, each unique case requires the attention of an attorney specialized and experienced in a specific niche of the law. Our team is composed of many different attorneys who take on different types of cases. Below we present the range of practice areas our attorneys are experienced at handling:
The number of motor vehicle accidents on a national level has been rising, reaching an almost ten-year high in 2015. That year, National Highway Traffic Safety Organization reported 35,092 roadway fatalities. Even though Rhode Island roads are widely considered to be one of the safest in the country, the upward trend can be noted even in our state. Here, too, the number of traffic accident related fatalities have been rising for the past few years and it is predicted that this trend will continue. Commenting on this, Col. Ann C. Assumpico, the superintendent of the Rhode Island police noted: “Tragically, many of these deaths were preventable; they were directly attributed to aggressive driving, distracted driving, excessive speed and/or failure to wear seat belts.”
If you or a family member have been involved in an accident that could have been avoided if the other driver had exercised sufficient care and caution or worse still, if the other driver displayed outright reckless behavior, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. He or she will provide you with guidance regarding the necessary steps to take, such as the gathering of evidence, talking to witnesses, and contacting the at-fault party’s insurance company. They will also take care of all the related legal procedures and red tape so that you can focus on recovery.
In addition to car accidents in general, Marasco & Nesselbush personal injury attorneys in Providence are experienced in handling cases involving victims of motorcycle accidents and truck accidents.
According to one report, up to 365 deaths in Rhode Island are caused by preventable medical errors each year. Substandard care costs residents affected by medical malpractice, as well as their families and communities at large, $108 million annually. Yet, medical malpractice insurance payouts amount to only about $21.6 million a year.
Medical malpractice scenarios can include misdiagnosis and wrong medication, surgical and anesthetic errors, brain injuries, birth injuries, nursing home negligence, and more. Bringing a medical malpractice claim to a successful resolution can be especially challenging because of the complex and technical nature of these cases. Marasco & Nesselbush medical malpractice attorneys have successfully protected the rights of many mistreated patients and their families and have obtained just compensation for them. We have the knowledge and resources to handle your claim. If you suspect you might have fallen victim to medical malpractice or negligence, contact us as soon as possible.
If you were injured in an accident at your workplace or while performing work-related duties, your lost wages and medical expenses may be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. This type of insurance may also cover injuries resulting from employee error.
Typical work-related accidents and injuries can include or be related to:
- machinery incidents
- repetitive motion injuries
- slip and fall accidents
- being struck by an object.
As employers in the state of Rhode Island are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible if your employer is uncooperative. At a consultation, we can help determine whether you are entitled to workers’ compensation due to your employment status and go over the specific circumstances of the accident. Marasco & Nesselbush personal injury attorneys in Providence will be happy to give you a free consultation and professionally assess your situation.
Social security disability
In Providence, the average wait time for an SSDI application hearing is 12 months, while processing takes about 348 days. The rate of approval is 38%, which is lower than the national average of 45%. If your SSDI case was rejected, you can appeal that decision. Marasco & Nesselbush attorneys in Providence will help you evaluate your circumstances and prepare an appeal with a high chance of success.
Even those who have already secured SSDI might encounter circumstances where they need to file a personal injury claim. They may wonder how the claim or potential lawsuit will affect their SSDI benefits. If this is true in your case, you should contact our attorneys as soon as possible to obtain advice on how to proceed in your unique circumstances.
Can I Afford to Hire Marasco & Nesselbush Personal Injury Attorneys?
Our Providence attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we will not charge you or earn any money on your case until we secure just compensation for you – either through a settlement or by a jury verdict. The money we earn is a percentage of the compensation you get. In addition, initial consultations are always free. Don’t worry about the costs, especially when your physical and emotional recovery is at stake. Please do not hesitate to contact Marasco & Nesselbush personal injury lawyers in Providence and obtain legal assistance tailored to your needs.
