Time Is Limited to File a Personal Injury Claim

If you have a personal injury claim in North Smithfield, you have limited time to begin pursuing your right to compensation. In Rhode Island, the statute of limitations requires you to file a personal injury lawsuit within three years of the date that you suffered your injuries.

If you file suit after this three-year period has passed, the party or parties from whom you are seeking compensation will likely file a motion with the court to dismiss your case as untimely. If granted, you will lose your opportunity to seek financial recovery for your injuries.
