Revised Slip and Fall Legislation In RI

Personal Injury Lawyer

The old, “open and obvious doctrine” was changed in favor of the injured party as of July 15, 2019. Before the change, the injured party was not able to recover if they were injured in a situation that was thought to be open and obvious. Under the new version of the doctrine, the injured party now has the ability to recover monetary damages even if the hazardous situation was considered open and obvious. It should be noted that Rhode Island is still a comparative negligence state. This means the amount of negligence attributed to the injured party may reduce recovery amounts. However, it is still good to have the potential for some recovery rather than no chance to recover at all.
