Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Car Accident Victims throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts
The motor vehicle most commonly and most frequently causes injury. In fact, car accidents are the leading cause of accidental death in this country. This blog is devoted to helping you, the consumer, understand car accident law so that you may make informed decisions in hiring a personal injury lawyer.
First, should you hire a lawyer? You should only hire a lawyer if you would like to be treated fairly by the insurance company. Without a lawyer, the odds of you receiving a fair settlement are slim. For more details as to why this is so, click here.
The claims and litigation process can be time consuming and filled with uncertainty. Even those plaintiffs with strong cases may lose. For these reasons, our court justice system encourages settlement. Most car accident cases settle before trial. That is perhaps why so many lawyers claim to be able to handle a personal injury case.
But to increase your chance that your case settles, and settles on favorable terms, you should choose an experienced trial lawyer who concentrates only in personal injury law. At its core, personal injury law involves insurance law and negligence principles. Additionally, the law is specific to the area where you live. Please take a look at our FAQ page for more information on this topic.
