HOW AN EXPERIENCED PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER CAN HELP
A South Kingstown Personal Injury Lawyer with years of experience like ours can assist with everything from negotiating a settlement out of court to taking a case to full trial. Either way, when an attorney is able to effectively negotiate with an insurance company or prove beyond a reasonable doubt that injuries were caused by the negligence of the other party, the end result is a more fair and just settlement. From road rash to broken bones and even loss-of-life events, an experienced lawyer can guide and help those who have been injured in a car accident or other type of accident.

RELY ON YOUR PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
Those who have been injured due to the negligence of another individual are, in most cases, best served by contacting a South Kingstown personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. There are a few important reasons why this is true. For example, evidence and eyewitness testimony can fade and become less useful when too much time is allowed to pass. Another key reason to act quickly after having been injured is that the “statute-of-limitations” is always in play in personal injury cases. Exceeding the “statute-of-limitations” could result in a lost opportunity to recover losses.
It is equally important to have an attorney properly evaluate your case, not only on its individual merits but also with regard the actual value of the claim. Knowing in advance what to expect in terms of a successful settlement can provide a peace of mind that would otherwise not be possible. Those with large medical expenses may also be able to better manage their finances by knowing more about what may lie ahead.
Injury or accident case
- Dial 911 and report the accident. Let them know if there are any injuries and always request a rescue if you are injured.
- Never move your vehicle prior to the police arriving.
- If you are able to exit your vehicle, take pictures of the accident scene from a distance so that you can see all of the vehicles involved and all of the vehicles in one picture. Then take close-up pictures of each vehicle involved. Make sure to include the damage, license plate of the vehicle, and a picture of the driver.
- If there is a witness to the accident, ask them to wait for the police to arrive so they can give a statement. If they cannot wait, ask if you can take a picture of their identification and then include a picture of them holding their identification that you can read.
- Once the police arrive, make a statement as to how the accident occurred. Ensure that the police talk to the witness and takes their statement as well. If the witness left prior to the police arrival, show the police officer a picture of the witness and their identification, making sure that, on the police report, they are noted as a witness that had to leave before his arrival.
- If you are injured, never refuse medical treatment by rescue personnel. Be transported by rescue to the nearest hospital to get medical treatment.
- You and the other driver can agree to follow each other and meet at the police department to make a report.
- If you are not going to meet at the police department to make a report, you should exchange the following information to include a copy of their license, motor vehicle registration, insurance card, a picture of their license plate, and a picture of the other driver. Remember, you should have documented photos of the scene of the accident and damages to vehicles as well.
- If you are involved in a bus accident and you are injured, make sure either you or someone else has dialed 911 to request a rescue as well as the police to document the accident.
- The bus driver should be creating a list of all the passengers on the bus at the time of the accident. Ensure that your name is written on the list, then take a picture of the list and the bus driver holding the list.
- Ensure you receive a receipt showing proof that you were on the bus. Take a picture of the receipt to preserve it.
- Take pictures of the damage to the bus, any vehicles involved in the accident, and/or any items damaged, i.e., a tree.
- If you are injured, do not refuse medical attention. Be transported by rescue to the nearest or most appropriate hospital for treatment.
