You never want to speak to anyone from the insurance company or bill collector before having our free consultation, available to you right now by text, web chat, or phone.
You might assume that insurance adjusters are there to help, particularly because they are trained to be very polite. But it’s important to remember that they are looking out for their employer’s interests, not yours. Insurance companies and bill collectors have no obligation to inform you of your many legal rights after a Rhode Island bike accident, and it is perfectly legal to record your conversation without telling you.
Unfortunately, insurance companies tend to place the fault for bicycle injuries on the cyclist. They will do whatever they can to pay you as little as possible for your bike damage, medical bills, and lost wages. That’s why you need the help of Bottaro Injury Lawyers. Contact us today for a free initial case evaluation and to discuss your legal rights and options with a Rhode Island bicycle accident attorney.

Time Limit for Filing a Bicycle Accident Lawsuit in Rhode Island
Under Rhode Island law, victims of bicycle accidents have a limited time to file a lawsuit to pursue compensation from the person who hurt them.
Rhode Island’s statute of limitations typically requires that you file suit over a bicycle accident case within three years of the date of the accident. If you wait too long to file your lawsuit, you risk that the court will dismiss your lawsuit as untimely. If that happens, you will have lost the right to seek compensation from the at-fault party.
