You have 3 years to file your car wreck claim for compensation

A person who is in a car wreck has a lot to worry about. These concerns start at the scene of the crash. You have to make sure that you get the medical care you need and that you are gathering possible evidence at the scene of the accident. Remember that you can't touch evidence, but you can get pictures of things like the damage to the car and the area around the crash.

When you are discussing things about the crash, make sure that you aren't saying anything that will make it appear as though you are accepting the responsibility for the car crash. This means that you can't apologize for the wreck since someone might take that as you saying you caused it. Of course, you must always tell the truth about what happened.

We know that you are probably very stressed at this point. This is understandable. You have to deal with the impact of your injuries, but you also have to work with insurance companies and handle other duties like figuring out what to do with your vehicle. We can help you with some of these tasks so that you are free to focus on healing more.

One thing to remember is that you have three years to act in Rhode Island on a personal injury claim. Your case must be filed within that time if you plan to seek compensation for the damages that you've suffered. While you might feel like you don't have to rush, filing your claim as soon as possible might mean that you get it resolved sooner.
