In Rhode Island, it is illegal to drive a car without auto insurance. Unfortunately, there are a large number of uninsured drivers operating vehicles throughout Rhode Island. Statistics show that these drivers are also far more likely to cause an accident, putting innocent drivers and passengers at risk.
Uninsured motorists may not have an insurance company on their side to pay for the damages they caused in an accident. Nevertheless, you should not have to pay for your damages out of pocket when you were not at fault for your accident. Damages can be devastating and may include:
By retaining a Providence personal injury lawyer from D'Alessandro & Wright, LLC, you will have a dedicated legal team on your side to negotiate with the insurance companies and fight for coverage of your damages. Our firm can help you win the settlement or trial verdict that you have the right to receive.
Once you have been injured in an accident, you have the right to file a claim against the insurance company of the responsible driver. When the negligent driver does not have any insurance, he or she is in violation of state law, but that does little to resolve your financial problems.
If you have uninsured motorist coverage, you can access compensation through your own insurance policy. Even if you have consistently paid your premiums and have been a faithful customer of your insurance company for years, however, it can still be difficult to get fair compensation from your own insurance company.
If you do not have coverage for an uninsured driver, it may be possible to get compensation through dram shop laws if the other driver was intoxicated. Sellers of alcohol could be held liable if they negligently or recklessly sell alcohol to an individual who is already intoxicated. Let our law firm get the facts about your case and assist you in filing a successful claim.
Your case deserves to be heard as a victim of another person's negligent act. Allow our firm, D'Alessandro & Wright, LLC, to review your situation, insurance policies, and all aspects of your case to help you determine how to pursue compensation. There are often ways to be compensated for the extensive costs you will incur for medical care and treatment, ambulance costs, rehabilitation and lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. We offer a free consultation to advise you of your options for your unique case.
Our firm deals with insurance companies every day. We know how they operate. They do not want to pay you the maximum and they could easily deny a valid claim. If this has been the situation, it may be possible to take the insurance company to court on an insurance bad faith case.
You have rights, you are protected, and you don't deserve to be given a difficult time getting paid. These cases of compensation can drag on, with a low offer sounding more and more attractive as the bills pile up – insurance companies count on your desperation to sign off on a settlement. Don't ever accept a low settlement or sign any papers regarding a settlement without first getting your case reviewed by a law firm with extensive experience and knowledge, as well as a long track record of success and achievements for clients.
At our firm, we know our business and we are prepared to offer you a free case evaluation so that you know what to expect. We will treat you with dignity, respect, and compassion, and our goal is to serve our clients with the best possible legal representation. You deserve to know your options, what to expect in compensation, and how to get fair treatment from your own insurance company.
