Evaluating your claim

To determine whether you have a personal injury claim, the Rhode Island personal injury lawyers at Abilheira Law will consider whether another person’s conduct wrongfully injured or harmed you. Negligence is the most common basis for recovering your losses from an accident. The law holds individuals and businesses responsible for careless acts or omissions that result in your injury, such as drivers who neglect to stop for stop signs or doctors who fail to follow established medical procedures.

Recovery for intentional misconduct may result if someone has deliberately hurt you or your property. For example, if someone has deliberately hit you without your permission, detained you against your will, or made false statements that injure your reputation.

Individuals and companies might also be responsible for damages on the basis of strict liability if they have engaged in dangerous activity, such as conducting blasting operations, keeping wild animals or dogs as pets, or if they have manufactured a defective or dangerous product.

What Is Your Injury Worth?

At Abilheira Law, we can help you put a dollar value on your injury. You are entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, the cost of repairing your property or the loss to its fair market value, and for any pain, disfigurement, physical handicap, embarrassment, loss of enjoyment of life, mental distress or emotional pain that you might suffer.

The Rhode Island personal injury lawyers at Abilheira Law will carefully interview you free of charge to learn the facts of your incident to determine who is responsible, the extent of your injuries, and the amount of your loss. In the course of representing you in your personal injury case, we will obtain your medical records, interview key witnesses, and obtain police reports and other information to help prove your claim. Remember—when you are injured or harmed by another and make a claim or institute a lawsuit to assert your right to recover your costs and losses, it is your burden to prove that the person who injured or harmed you is at fault, caused and ultimately is responsible for your injuries. That is what the Rhode Island personal injury lawyers at Abilheira Law do best.
