There is no substitute for the sound legal advice of a lawyer

Much like in other states across the nation, Rhode Island has laws in place that allow people who have been injured in an accident to collect compensation from the negligent party. Called tort laws, these statutes apply after many types of accidents, including motor vehicle crashes, medical mistakes, wrongful death and injuries suffered on someone else's property.

Thanks to the invention of the Internet, Rhode Island tort laws are viewable online, giving residents all over the state, including here in Newport, access to legal information when they need it. But our Newport readers should be warned, immediate access to these laws does not necessarily mean you will be able to understand the complex nature of each statute or whether it applies to your situation.

It's important to point out that filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim after an accident takes an intricate understanding of the law. Legal claims need to be completed in a certain manner and filed within a certain timeframe as well. If you don't know where to look in Rhode Island's tort laws, you may miss these important parts of filing a claim, perhaps even jeopardizing your claim altogether.

In order to get a complete understanding of your rights and protections under the law, you should talk to an experienced injury attorney, such as any of the members of our team at Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP. With any one of our attorneys' help, you can make sure that you're not only filing a claim in accordance with state law, but that you are asking for and receiving fair compensation in return.

Remember: there simply is no substitute for the sound legal advice you get from a lawyer, especially one who has your wellbeing at heart.
