We are skilled at litigating many other types of personal injury cases, including those involving dog bites, dangerous products and defective drugs.
We represent drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians injured in various kinds of auto accidents, from minor fender-benders to major collisions.
Rhode Island uses an at-fault (tort) system to determine who is responsible for paying the costs that result from an auto accident. Under the pure comparative fault standard, the insurance companies of both parties involved in the accident pay damages on par with the percentage of fault for which their clients are found responsible. For example, if you are determined to be 10 percent at fault for a car accident and the other driver is found to be 90 percent at fault, the other driver’s insurance company will pay for 90 percent of your damages and your insurance company will pay for 10 percent. To achieve a compensation structure that is consistent with the circumstances of your accident, our attorneys examine police reports, witness testimony and other forms of evidence.
