Commonly Asked Questions:
What Should I do Right After a Car Accident?
Turn on your hazard lights if you are able, and do not move your car from the scene of the accident unless you are in danger. Call the local police or 911 to report the accident and tell them if anyone is hurt or needs medical attention. If you are able, get the names and contact information of any witnesses. Try to document what happened, and take pictures if you can. Get the other driver’s name, address, and insurance information. If the other driver left the scene of the accident, try to document everything you can about the vehicle, license plate, and what happened. If you are injured seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you do not feel you need to see a doctor, it is a good idea to be seen as some injuries may not be immediately apparent.
How Quickly Do I Have To Take Legal Action After My Accident?
In Rhode Island, the time period you have to file a lawsuit in most auto accident cases is 3 years. For minors, the time period is longer. Contacting a knowledgeable Pawtucket car accident lawyer can help you make sure you do not miss your opportunity to be compensated for the injuries and losses after an accident.
What Injuries May I Be Compensated For?
If you are injured in a car accident that is not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other loses. Generally, the settlement for pain and suffering is what the insurance company will try to avoid paying. Insurance companies can be unfair when it comes to paying you for your pain and suffering because the less they pay you, the more money they make. This is where our 29 years of experience as Pawtucket car accident lawyers will help you get the best settlement possible. Read more.
What If The Other Driver Has No Insurance?
If you are hurt by a driver with no insurance, you can collect uninsured motorist benefits from the vehicle you were in at the time of the accident. Your insurance company cannot raise your rates if you are not at fault. Often times, you can also collect uninsured motorist benefits from other automobiles insured and owned by people in the house you live in. An experienced car accident lawyer can assess your policy to make sure you receive these benefits. Read more.
How Do I Record Any Property Damage Done To My Vehicle?
You should have the damage to your vehicle assessed by a professional auto body repair shop. Depending on the accident, the opinion of a mechanic may also be needed. This is the best way to get an estimate of the damage because it is likely you will have your car repaired at the shop assessing the damages. After an estimate is completed, the claims adjuster will be able to negotiate your property damage claim. Read more.
