How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in RI?

In Rhode Island, the statute of limitations to file a personal injury suit is three (3) years from the time of injury. But don’t wait! The more time your attorney has to investigate, the better for maximizing the compensation you receive.

What If The Other Driver Is Uninsured?

If the at-fault driver is uninsured, or if the other driver flees the scene of the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation through uninsured motorist coverage on the vehicle you were in at the time of the accident. Insurance companies cannot raise the rates of drivers who were not at fault. You may also be able to collect these benefits from the insurance for other vehicles that you or others in your household own. Read more

How Do I Get Top Dollar for Damage to My Vehicle?

In addition to receiving compensation for your personal injuries, you may also be entitled to compensation for repairing the damage to your car. Simply have the insurance adjuster meet with your auto repair mechanic so that they can provide an accurate estimate for repairing your vehicle. This will help to prevent the insurance company from undercompensating you so that you get adequate compensation to repair the damage. Read more.

Signs a Driver Who May Cause an Accident

Looking out for dangerous drivers is extremely important, especially when trying to avoid accidents.

  1. Watch for vehicles with a lot of smoke coming from their vehicle. They may need to make an emergency pull off or might even lose control of the vehicle, blown tires fall under this category too
  2. Drivers who are speeding tend to be a common cause for car accident
  3. Drivers who change lanes frequently put many in danger of causing a car accident
  4. Drivers who are swirling within their lane could be a sign of either distracted driving or drunk driving

How Should I Deal with My Insurance Company?

  • Obtain a copy of the police report for your accident.
  • File your insurance claim(s) as soon as possible after the accident.
  • Answer all of your insurance agent’s questions.
  • Be sure to keep copies of your insurance policy and any other paperwork associated with your claim, like expense reports and medical bills.
  • Do not discuss the accident or settlement offers with the other driver’s insurance company until you have first contacted an experienced Woonsocket car accident attorney.

What Insurance Is Required for RI Drivers?

The minimum required liability coverage for RI vehicle owners is $25,000/$50,000. This means each individual injured in the accident is covered for up to $25,000 and there is up to $50,000 total coverage for the accident. If this minimum coverage will not be enough to cover your costs, you may be able to collect underinsured motorist benefits from the insurance on the car you were in at the time of the accident, or from the insurance for any other vehicle you or a member of your household owns.
