Many people in Rhode Island are willing to step up and take responsibility when they cause someone’s injury, but that is not always the case. Even those with a strong sense of justice may think twice when faced with the possibility of extra payments or increased insurance premiums.
This is why we believe that it is important to prepare thoroughly to defend your rights if you are injured in an auto accident. As tragic as it may be, good intentions are not enough to settle your medical bills, pay for repairs to your vehicle and help you put your life back together after pain and suffering. At D’Alessandro & Wright, LLC, we fight tirelessly to help our clients get more than kind thoughts and token payments from negligent parties and their insurance companies.
One thing you should know about negotiating an accident settlement is that things are not always what they seem. For example, insurance representatives may offer you what seems like a significant amount of money. This could lead you to believe that they are on your side.
Unfortunately, the good will of these companies tends to last only as long as the legal time limit for bringing a personal injury case. After that, you could very well be left to handle the costs of the remainder of your treatment alone, to say nothing of recovering from your pain.
We help our clients in many ways, from showing them the true, long-term cost of their injuries to tenaciously representing their best interests in negotiations and courtrooms. We do this not to disadvantage the other parties to the case, but to make our clients whole again — to bring their lives back as close as possible to the way they were before the collision.
If you are ever in a position to receive a kind word or a supportive payment from someone who caused an injury to you, you may want to think twice. Is that compensation enough to make you whole? If not, to what extent will the other party’s good intentions motivate them? To learn more about the purpose and process of personal injury law in Rhode Island, please continue on our main website.
