What are some myths about Rhode Island and Massachusetts Personal Injury Law?

February 19th, 2020

Over the decades, our lawyers have just about heard it all when it comes to car accidents and personal injury law!  Today, I thought it would be fun to address some “myths” in the legal profession.

How much money must my case be worth to make a personal injury claim? It must be a lot!

Rhode Island personal injury law gives you the right to monetary compensation if you have been injured through no fault of your own. You need not have a “huge case”; in fact, there is no minimum amount.  In Massachusetts, you need to have at least $2,000.00 in medical expenses to pursue a personal injury claim. This is not a high ceiling considering most ambulance companies and emergency rooms charges could exceed this amount.

At Bottaro Law, my team and I have handled many types of personal injuries.  You might think your case is “too small.” In fact, many cases that may appear small at first have led to some of our largest awards.  We are glad to help and always provide a free confidential consultation, so call or text us 24/7 and let us provide some guidance.

Do I need a personal injury lawyer is I have insurance?

Yes!  Although you have insurance, the insurance companies will not be on your side after a personal injury. Insurance companies are always trying to make a profit for themselves and do not have your best interest in their minds. If you handle a personal injury claim on your own without an attorney – they will compensate you less money than you actually deserve and need. With a personal injury lawyer who knows how to handle the insurance companies, you will certainly receive more for your injuries and remain stress-free.

Do I have plenty of time to make my personal injury claim?

It depends on what you mean. I can tell you that delay hurts cases and costs you money.  You might not feel your pain right away after an accident, but it’s best to immediately call a personal injury attorney. Every case is different, with various deadlines for paperwork and formally filing a lawsuit.  But you need help right away.  And with our No Fee Guarantee, it costs you nothing until I win!  And I will win you more, when you call me earlier because my team and I can dig in to gathering the evidence, handling the calls, paperwork, and hassle for you!

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

There is simply no cost to you upfront.  Personal injury lawyers in general work on a commission called the contingent fee agreement so the more we recover, the more you pocket.  But we are not all alike!  At The Bottaro Law Firm, we operate with faith-based core values including honesty and integrity.  Unlike other firms, we do not ask for any upfront retainers for a consultation and there are no hidden fees throughout your case.
