Recent Personal Injury Cases In Woonsocket​

Personal injury claims vary case by case, and the specifics of each incident dictate how much damages you’ll be able to recover and for what reasons.

For example, a recent serious car accident in Woonsocket caused the death of an elderly woman, and the 30-year-old woman involved in the accident was arrested for leaving the scene of the accident following the fatal crash, which is required under Rhode Island General Laws § 31-26-1.

While car accidents are a leading cause of injury in Woonsocket, other causes of injuries are frequently reported. For example, NBC 10 News reported in July 2021 that two workers were injured when the retaining wall they were building collapsed.

Most Dangerous Streets In Woonsocket​

Car accidents are responsible for a majority of documented personal injury claims, typically involving cars, trucks, and motorcycles on the road.

While the state of Rhode Island saw 53 fatal crashes in 2019, its most recent Highway Safety Plan showed a gradually decreasing number of fatal accidents per 100 million vehicle miles traveled (VMT) from 2013 to the present, indicating a positive trend.

There are, however, specific roadways and intersections in Woonsocket that are prone to car accidents.

SR-122 Mendon Road

There have been a significant number of fatal accidents along SR-122 Mendon Road in Woonsocket, primarily due to the large number of vehicles that travel along Mendon in its northbound and southbound directions. The majority of accidents occurred on Mendon between SR-122 to the south and Diamond Hill Rd to the north.

Cumberland Street

Cumberland Street travels right into downtown Woonsocket and parallels the Blackstone River. There are a number of small streets that weave into and out of Cumberland Street, which can yield themselves to accidents.

Cass Avenue

There have been a significant number of fatal accidents along SR-122 Mendon Road in Woonsocket, primarily due to the large number of vehicles that travel along Mendon in its northbound and southbound directions. The majority of accidents occurred on Mendon between SR-122 to the south and Diamond Hill Rd to the north.

SR-104 Main Street

Main Street travels right through downtown Woonsocket and crosses over the Blackstone River. Because Main Street is a major roadway, the sheer number of vehicles that travel down Main Street contributes to the increasing likelihood of car accidents.

How Long Do I Have To File My Personal Injury Case In Woonsocket?​

The Rhode Island statute of limitations states that you generally have up to 3 years to file a claim following your accident or injury. To ensure that you file your personal injury claim within the appropriate time frame, collect all documentation related to the accident. This includes medical records, accident reports, and witness information.

Review Title 9, Chapter 1 of the Rhode Island General Laws for time limits on specific types of injuries. For example, the period of limitation “[a]gainst towns for injury or damage arising out of maintenance of highways, causeways or bridges” includes 60 days’ notice after the incident, whereas the statute of limitations for product liability actions is 10 years from the date of purchase of the product.
