How Long Do You Have To File A Personal Injury Claim In Warwick?
According to the Rhode Island General Law, the statute of limitations — which refers to the window of time the injured party has to file a personal injury claim — is three years for the following:
- Injuries to the person, generally
- Medical malpractice
- Wrongful death; loss of consortium, companionship or society in wrongful death action
- Pain and suffering in wrongful death action
- Against towns for injury or damage arising out of maintenance of highways, causeways or bridges (with 60 days’ notice after incident)
In Warwick — and the rest of Rhode Island — a person injured by a defective or dangerous product must file a product liability claim within ten years from the date of purchase.
Lawyers can more easily gather essential evidence, such as video, photos, and witness interviews if they begin immediately after the accident. Collect all documents related to your injury, including car accident reports, medical records from the hospital or doctor’s office, and work-related incident reports to ensure timeliness of filing your case.
How Much Is Your Personal Injury Cases Worth?
Marasco & Nesslebush has recovered more than $100 million on behalf of its clients. For example, the firm secured $1.4 million for a family whose son died in a high-speed car accident, and our attorneys obtained $1.25 million for a passenger injured in a car collision.
Note that in the event that the plaintiff is partially responsible for the accident, Rhode Island law doesn’t prevent them from recovering damages, but the judge or jury will diminish damages “in proportion to the amount of negligence attributable to the person injured.”
Each case is unique, and the specific circumstances determine how much you can recover. Our award-winning team of personal injury attorneys has represented clients who have suffered life-altering injuries.
