Common Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

No matter what caused your injury, the Providence personal injury attorneys at Bottaro Injury Lawyers are ready to work for you. We have experience representing accident victims in the Providence, Rhode Island, area who have suffered injuries related to:

  • Car accidents – Our attorneys pursue maximum compensation for victims of car crashes, including both drivers and passengers. We work to hold negligent and reckless drivers accountable for injuring others and can also help our clients recover compensation through MedPay coverage and uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.
  • Motorcycle accidents – Motorcycle crashes often leave riders with catastrophic, life-altering injuries. Our firm helps riders pursue compensation after accidents involving collisions with other vehicles or single-vehicle accidents caused by dangerous road conditions from unsafe design or poor maintenance.
  • Trucking accidents – Our experienced legal team has the experience and resources needed to help you take on even the largest trucking corporations and insurers to demand compensation after being hurt in a trucking accident caused by a driver’s or trucking company’s negligence or recklessness.
  • Bicycle accidents – If you were injured in an accident on your bicycle, our team is ready to vigorously pursue maximum compensation for you from a negligent driver or a government entity if an unsafe road design contributed to the crash.
  • Pedestrian accidents – Bottaro Injury Lawyers works diligently to keep our communities safe by holding careless drivers accountable when they fail to yield to pedestrians and cause devastating injuries in pedestrian accidents.
  • Bus accidents – When you have been injured in an accident involving a government-operated bus like a public transit bus or school bus, we can guide you through the complex claims process. We also help clients seek financial recovery following accidents involving charter, intercity, and shuttle busses.
  • Boating accidents – Whether you were injured while on someone else’s private boat or watercraft or you were involved in an accident on a commercial charter boat, ferry, or pleasure cruise, our experienced firm has the experience needed to thoroughly advocate for your legal rights and interests.
  • Dangerous premises – Our attorneys believe that property owners should be held accountable when they fail to properly maintain their premises and keep them free of hazardous conditions. If you were injured by someone else’s dangerous property, our firm stands ready to pursue maximum compensation for you in a premises liability claim.
  • Slip and falls – Rhode Island residents endure many different kinds of slip-and-fall accidents, including those caused by snow and ice, spills and slick surfaces, and obstructed walkways, just to name a few. We can help you seek financial compensation for your medical bills and other losses after sustaining severe injuries in a slip-and-fall accident.
  • Dog bites – If someone else’s dog has bitten you and you suffered severe injuries or medical complications, we can help you pursue financial compensation, whether from the dog’s owner or, more frequently, from their homeowner’s or renter’s insurance provider.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect – When nursing homes fail in their duty to keep vulnerable residents safe, our personal injury lawyers work hard to demand accountability and justice from perpetrators of abuse and neglect. We also fight to secure full financial compensation for the victims of nursing home abuse and neglect and their families.
  • Dangerous products – If you have been injured by a design or manufacturing defect or an inherently dangerous product, Bottaro Injury Lawyers can demand accountability and compensation from product manufacturers who put dangerous goods on the market.
  • Wrongful death – When your family has lost a loved one due to the negligence or other wrongful acts of another party, our firm can take on the work of pursuing compensation and justice for your loved one and your family, so you have the time to grieve and heal.

Demanding Full Value for Your Personal Injury Case

If you have been injured due to someone else’s legal fault, you may be entitled to demand personal injury compensation for your expenses and losses, such as:

  • Medical bills and invoices, including for emergency room treatment and hospitalization, prescription medications, physical rehabilitation, or purchases of medical devices and equipment
  • Long-term care expenses, such as for home health care services, to help when you suffer permanent disabilities due to your injuries
  • Lost income from missed work while treating and recovering from accident injuries
  • Loss of earning capacity and employment benefits when disabilities render you unable to return to full-time work after an accident
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional trauma and distress
  • Visible and extensive scarring or disfigurement
  • Physical and cognitive disabilities that interfere with daily living or enjoyment of activities
  • Reduced life expectancy

Time Is Limited to File a Personal Injury Claim

When you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation from those at fault for injuring you, you only have a certain amount of time to file your lawsuit. Under Rhode Island’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases, you typically have just three years from the date you were injured to file suit.

If you file after the statute of limitations has passed on your personal injury claim, the parties you sued can file a motion with the court to permanently dismiss your claim.

Tips for Protecting Your Rights After an Accident in Providence

Following an accident in Providence, you should remember to take these steps to help protect your right to recover compensation in a personal injury claim:

  • See a doctor for a physical exam as soon as possible after the accident to have any injuries you sustained in the accident promptly diagnosed. Follow all treatment instructions that your doctor and other providers give you.
  • Take photos or video of the accident scene as soon as possible, ideally immediately following the accident, to document details of the scene. Also take photos of any visible injuries you suffered.
  • Keep copies of your medical bills and records from your treatment, along with other bills, invoices, and receipts from other expenses you incur due to the accident. In addition, make sure to have copies of your pay stubs or other income records if you miss work or are permanently disabled from working.
  • Avoid discussing the accident, your injuries, or your personal injury claim on social media. Also avoid posting photos or videos of yourself while still treating or rehabilitating your injuries. Insurers have been known to monitor injury victims’ social media accounts for posts they can use to try to contradict an injury victim’s official claims.
  • Speak to a Providence personal injury lawyer from Bottaro Injury Lawyers to learn what further steps you and our firm can take to pursue your rights to financial recovery for your injuries.
