Establishing your legal right to recovery after a slip and fall
Slip and fall claims fall under the broader category of premises liability, as they hinge on the property owners’ duty of care toward other people. Many of these incidents occur at places of business, such as when a customer slips and falls because of a wet floor in a store. Our knowledgeable attorneys will explain the rules regarding negligence and compensation that apply in your state, explore the circumstances of your fall and determine if you have a viable claim.
Taking quick legal action after your motor vehicle accident
Massachusetts and Rhode Island differ in their legal processes for recovering damages for auto accident injuries. Massachusetts is a no-fault state, meaning you must first resort to your own policy’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage to pay for medical treatment and other out-of-pocket losses. But Rhode Island follows the traditional fault-based system, allowing you to file a claim directly against the other driver or his or her insurer for your damages, including pain and suffering. Massachusetts generally does not allow damages suits against another driver except in the most serious injury cases. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to not postpone contacting a lawyer.
Using knowledge of federal trucking regulations to fight for you
Because the government recognizes the significant danger that multi-ton commercial vehicles can cause in a truck accident, trucking companies and their employees are required to comply with federal regulations involving the number of hours truckers can drive, drug and alcohol testing, and inspection, repair and maintenance. Our firm can look at whether the trucking company violated any of these regulations and whether such violations contributed to your accident.
Seeking maximum recovery for tragic wrongful death claims
If you lost a loved one due to someone’s negligence, we can help you seek justice through a wrongful death claim.
