How Long After a Personal Injury Can You Sue In Rhode Island?

What is one of the most important reasons you should always contact our personal injury law firm after a Rhode Island personal injury? In Rhode Island and Massachusetts, there are always important time deadlines that apply to your claim. There are general statutes of limitations and sometimes special deadlines that need to be followed, or else you might risk losing out on compensation forever.

For example, in Rhode Island, the law states that you must have three (3) years to file a personal injury law claim. If a victim dies as a result of an accident, a wrongful death claim must be filed within three (3) years of the person’s death.

Even though you have three years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit, it would be best to call an experienced Rhode Island personal injury attorney right away.

A personal injury attorney can obtain any evidence that might be lost if you wait too long, such as a witness statement. Your attorney will also be there to handle all communications with the insurance companies and set up your treatment right away.
