What can I do to protect my rights after a car accident in RI or MA?

First and foremost, after a car accident, it’s important to get the medical attention you need for your injuries. Once you’ve taken care of yourself and your loved ones, here’s a list of critical things to do after a car accident:

  • Save any evidence you have from the crash scene, such as photos, cellphone video, and contact information from witnesses.
  • Obtain a copy of the police report.
  • Get copies of your medical records, and save all bills, invoices, and receipts.
  • Gather proof of income documents, such as paystubs or W-2s.
  • Obtain vehicle damage estimates and vehicle value information.
  • As you recover, keep a diary that includes all relevant information related to your accident and how your injuries are impacting your day-to-day life.

A Rhode Island car accident lawyer can provide the legal advice you need to prevent you from making critical mistakes early on in your case. Contact Bottaro Injury Lawyers today to discuss how we can help protect your rights after a crash.

The insurance company wants a statement about my car accident. Should I give one?

No. Despite what some people may tell you, you are not required to give a statement about the accident to your insurance company or the other party’s insurer. In fact, it may end up hurting your case. Before you talk to anyone else about the accident, talk to an attorney with experience handling car accident cases in Rhode Island or Massachusetts.

The accident may have been partially my fault. Do I still have a case?

It depends. Rhode Island is a “pure comparative negligence” state. This means that even though an accident may be partially your fault, you can still recover damages from another at-fault party. However, your damages will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

Massachusetts is a “modified” comparative fault state. This can have a significant effect on your compensable damages if you are found to be partially at fault for a car wreck. Under “modified” comparative fault rules, you can only recover damages in a car crash if you are found to be less than 50 percent at fault for the accident. Like Rhode Island, the amount of damages you receive will be reduced by an amount equal to the percentage of fault you share in causing the crash.

Before you dismiss the possibility of recovering damages for your injuries, contact our car accident law firm to discuss the specific facts of your case.
