Experience & Knowledge: What it Takes to Get Good Results
If you were injured in any type of accident caused by someone else, there is a chance that negligence was the direct cause of your injuries. Negligence is a legal (civil) cause of action that may be best illustrated in one of two ways:
- DUTY → BREACH OF DUTY → DIRECT CAUSATION → PERSONAL INJURIES
- You may be able to bring a negligence claim against one or more defendants if:
- The defendant had a duty to you in one way or another;
- The defendant breached that duty;
- The breached duty directly caused your injuries.
In order to successfully bring a civil action against a defendant for negligence, the plaintiff must prove each one of these elements by a “preponderance of the evidence.”
So, what does this mean for your case? It means that you need a personal injury law firm well-versed in the nuances of negligence and other legal theories applicable to your case. It means that experience and knowledge matter!
A reputable Rhode Island personal injury lawyer experienced in handling cases similar to yours may be successful in recovering the following types of damages for you and your loved ones:
- Medical expenses
- Related out-of-pocket costs
- Costs and expenses related to rehabilitation therapies
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- And more
As you can see, there is a lot at stake in your personal injury case. Do not leave it up to chance by going it alone or by hiring less-than-exceptional legal counsel. You should hire the best legal counsel available. You should hire a highly skilled Rhode Island personal injury lawyer at Kilroy Law Firm.
Be Wary of Insurance Company Representatives Who Try to Settle Your Claim as Quickly as Possible
If you are injured due to the fault of someone else, chances are very good that the negligent party’s insurance company will contact you sooner than later. The goal of the insurance company is not to make you whole again; rather, it is to settle your claim for as little money as possible as quickly as possible.
If you are unrepresented by a personal injury lawyer, the defendant’s insurance company will communicate with you directly and will offer several reasons as to why you should take their first offer “before it is too late,” or because the offer “may not be on the table” if you decide to wait and think about it.
In many cases, insurance representatives are unrelenting and will continue to contact you at home and/or at work until you speak with them and give them the answers they seek.
It is to your benefit to contact a Rhode Island personal injury attorney before providing any type of statement to the insurance company. Your words may be used “against” you later down the road, and it is easy to become confused during intense lines of questioning.

Lawyers cannot and should not attempt to become experts in all areas of law. Those who claim to be such experts are not being truthful. The reality is that it takes years of learning and experience to become really good at handling certain types of cases.

Time May Run Out, so Don’t Delay
Every state has a rule called the statute of limitations that applies to personal injury claims. Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for Rhode Island states that you have three years from the date of injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. So if you got hit by a car and injured on December 7, 2020, you would have until December 7, 2023, to file a lawsuit relating to that incident. If you miss that deadline, the court will likely dismiss your claim. And these laws are a bit more complex than may appear at first glance, so you should always consult with an experienced Rhode Island injury lawyer to ensure that you meet all deadlines. Here are some examples of exceptions to the stated deadline:
- If you’re under 18 when the injury arises, the time period does not begin to run until your 18th birthday;
- If the injury was not discovered immediately, the clock doesn’t begin to tick until the injury is reasonably discoverable; and
- In a slip and fall case involving government property, there are notice requirements that begin as early as 60 days from the date of injury.
These are just a few examples of the complexity of time limits for personal injury cases. So if someone injures you, do not hesitate. Call an experienced Rhode Island injury attorney today to properly preserve your claim.
