How Can a Providence Personal Injury Lawyer Help?
A skilled Providence personal injury lawyer may be your best chance at getting the full and fair compensation you deserve after you have been involved in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. These cases are rampant and revolve around work-related accidents, dog bites, traffic accidents, machinery accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, and many other case types.
This means that the liability of personal injury cases mostly lies in the hands of government agencies, private businesses, individuals, and insurance companies. However, it is common to find these entities collaborating with insurance adjusters to deny victims their deserved compensation benefits. Without a proper understanding of one’s personal injury rights, victims can likely fall prey to these predatory tactics.
Thus, the recommended way to deal with personal injury cases is to hire a professional personal injury lawyer who understands Providence law and is aware of the traps commonly set to prevent victims from recovering their rightful compensation.
Specific actions your personal injury lawyer can take include:
- Thoroughly investigate the accident or incident that caused your injuries, including securing and recovering physical evidence, reviewing documents and reports, and interviewing eyewitnesses.
- Review the evidence to identify the liable party or parties
- Build a persuasive and effective legal claim, including bringing in expert witnesses when necessary.
- Prepare and file all the paperwork in your case, including insurance claims or a legal complaint
- Negotiate with the insurance companies to try to reach a settlement that provides you with maximum compensation, or take your case to court if the at-fault party or insurance company won’t agree to a fair settlement.
What Kinds of Personal Injury Cases Can Morgan & Morgan Handle?
Our personal injury lawyers in Providence are well-versed in the intricacies of personal injury law, and their vast experience covers a wide range of cases, including but not limited to:
Suffering an injury in a car accident that wasn’t your fault can be devastating. Even worse, insurance companies rarely care about your needs after a car accident—they simply want to pay little as possible and close your case quickly.
Whether you've been involved in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, Morgan & Morgan's attorneys are prepared to investigate the incident, gather evidence, and build a strong case to help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
Slip, trip, and fall accidents are often preventable, but too many property and business owners fail to keep their premises safe. Whether the owner was negligent or trying to save money at the expense of customer safety, the result of their carelessness is that you are suffering.
If you've suffered injuries due to a hazardous condition on someone else's property, Morgan & Morgan's premises liability lawyers have the knowledge and expertise to hold negligent property owners accountable.
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional neglects to provide appropriate treatment or take appropriate action—or even gives substandard treatment that causes harm, injury, or death to a person. Malpractice or negligence normally involves a medical error.
In cases of medical negligence or malpractice, Morgan & Morgan's skilled attorneys work tirelessly to ensure your rights are protected and that you receive fair compensation for the harm caused by healthcare professionals.
If you've been injured on the job, Morgan & Morgan's personal injury lawyers are well-versed in workers' compensation laws. They can help you to fight to ensure you receive the benefits and compensation you're entitled to.

What Should I Do if Involved in an Accident in Providence?
If you are unfortunately involved in an accident in Providence, there are several steps you can take for the best outcome. If your injuries are severe, it is important not to exert yourself and call for medical attention immediately if able.
If you can, next you can call the authorities. They can come to your aid and even provide an official report, which can be helpful for any legal claim you may make in the future.
Next, gather evidence from the scene that may be helpful in the retelling of your accident. An example could be to take a picture of a wet floor after a slip and fall.
After that, contact a personal injury lawyer in Providence. Make sure the attorney is the right fit for your case, has experience, and is willing to go the extra mile to fight for your compensation.
While your attorney works on your case, it is important to continue and complete your medical treatment. This is for your own well-being as well as evidence that you are taking your injury seriously. Document all expenses you incur along the way.
What Damages Are Available for Personal Injury Claims?
Personal injury claims are filed by accident victims seeking monetary compensation for their injuries. These injuries caused by accidents can have a significant impact on the lives of victims. Each case is unique, but personal injury damages often include medical costs, loss of income, property loss, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, and loss of consortium.
The personal injury lawyers in Providence at Morgan & Morgan thoroughly evaluate each client’s personal injury claim regarding the physical, emotional, mental, and financial impacts that an injury has had on a victim’s life. If the party responsible for causing the accident displayed particularly heinous negligence or misconduct, you may also be justified in suing for punitive damages.
How Much Time Do I Have to File a Claim?
Each state has its own statutes of limitations that govern the amount of time you will have to file a personal injury claim. In Rhode Island, there are separate statutes for different types of personal injury cases. Generally speaking, however, most personal injury lawsuits will need to be filed within two years from the date of injury. There are exceptions to each rule, and medical malpractice claims are treated a bit differently. Since each case is different, it is essential to seek the advice of a personal injury attorney in Providence.
An experienced personal injury attorney in Providence can closely examine your case and can explain the statute of limitations for your specific claim. At Morgan & Morgan, our dedicated personal injury lawyers in Rhode Island have been handling injury cases for over 35 years and will ensure that you file a claim within the required period.
