Car Accident Lawyer with Insider Knowledge

Before graduating from Boston College Law School, Mr. Lamy worked on the defense side as an insurance adjuster. Insurance adjusters are those who control cases and negotiate settlements on behalf of the insurance companies. Attorney Lamy knows their tricks because he settled nearly a thousand cases from small to large. He knows how adjusters look to poke holes in your case and devalue your injury. Our firm can use that insider information to your benefit. As a result of his extensive time working as an adjuster for an insurance company, and his time training at Boston's premier plaintiff trial firm, Attorney Lamy knows exactly what it takes to obtain the best results for your claim.

Whether the driver, a passenger, or pedestrian injured in a car accident, our firm is prepared to help you through the process.

You may have a lot of questions, such as:

  • How are my medical bills going to be paid after a car accident?
  • What about lost wages?
  • What if I am fired because I cannot continue to work after a car accident?
  • What about the damage to my car?

It's complicated, it's frustrating, and that is why our office is here to resolve the entire matter for you.

Who is Liable for Damages After a Car Accident in Rhode Island?

The first step for an attorney following a car accident is to determine liability.

Liability, or fault, is a complex determination made based on numerous factors including but not limited to:

  • State and federal laws;
  • Weather and other conditions affecting the road;
  • The area of impact to the vehicle and severity;
  • Witness statements;
  • And other factors.

Common Injuries & Damages in Car Accident Cases

Auto accidents occur every day and many of them result in serious bodily injury.

The following are some of the injuries that commonly occur in automobile accidents:

Car Accident Claim Law in Massachusetts

Massachusetts is a no-fault state and drivers are required by law to maintain PIP (personal injury protection) coverage. PIP coverage will pay certain medical bills and wages following an accident. Because Massachusetts is a no-fault state and maintains PIP coverage, victims must meet certain thresholds in order to bring a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

It is important to speak with an attorney to guide you through the complicated PIP laws and to determine if your injury is severe enough to meet the threshold so that a claim can be brought against the at-fault driver.

Rhode Island Claim Law

Unlike our neighbor State, Massachusetts, Rhode Island is not a no-fault state and does not maintain PIP coverage. Additionally, there are no injury thresholds in Rhode Island. As a result, any person injured in an auto accident in Rhode Island, whether minor or severe, can immediately bring a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

How Much Can You Get From A Car Accident Case?

The amount of compensation that you will receive depends on the severity of the injury.

You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Loss of current and future wages
  • The impact of a permanent disability
  • Pain and suffering
