What Is a Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury case is a type of legal action you can take if you have been hurt due to someone else’s wrongdoing. Most personal injury cases are based on the legal concept of negligence. In layperson’s terms, when someone has an obligation to prevent you from being injured and fails to take reasonable steps in that direction, you can hold them financially responsible for the consequences. That someone could be a single person, an organization or business, or even a governmental body.

By filing an insurance claim or lawsuit against the negligent party, you can compel them to compensate you for the physical and emotional injuries and other losses they caused you to suffer. For example, suppose you slip on a puddle of spilled liquid while shopping at a grocery store and break your leg. The store could owe you money for the medical care you need, any income you lost while unable to work, and the pain and suffering you experienced because of your injury.

Damages You Could Recover in a Massachusetts Personal Injury Claim

If you’ve been injured and someone else is to blame, they could owe you compensation for your:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earnings and other financial benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Reduced quality of life

Evidence Used to Prove Fault in a Massachusetts Personal Injury Case

You and your personal injury attorney will need strong evidence to maximize your compensation after an accident. Examples of potential evidence include:

  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Photos from the accident scene 
  • Physical evidence from the accident scene
  • Expert witness testimony
  • Accident reports
  • Medical records
  • Surveillance, dashcam, and traffic camera videos of the accident

Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims in Massachusetts

In most cases, you have three years from the date of an accident in Massachusetts to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, you will likely lose your chance to pursue compensation for your losses.

Steps to Take to Protect Your Rights After an Accident

Here are the key steps to take after an accident to protect your right to compensation:

  • Seek medical treatment right away, even if you don’t think you’re severely injured at first.
  • Record what happened in as much detail as you can as soon after the accident as possible.
  • Take pictures of your injuries and the area where the accident occurred.
  • Save all your medical records and receipts.
  • Do not give any statements to insurance companies, including your own insurer, without talking to a lawyer first.
  • Call our Massachusetts personal injury lawyers to discuss your case.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Car Accident

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.

I was seriously injured in a car accident and I can’t work – how can I afford an attorney?

You don’t need the added stress of worrying about how you’ll pay for a qualified car accident attorney in Rhode Island. That’s why we offer an exclusive No Fee Guarantee®: There is no charge to you until we win your case. Call (401) 777-7777 or contact us online today.
