Q: Will you always pay out of pocket expenses up front in Rhode Island personal Injury cases?

A:  We almost always pay all out of pocket expenses and get reimbursed from the proceeds upon settlement or judgment. 

Q: What are normal and usual out of pocket expenses in A RI Personal Injury or Auto Accident Case?

A: In Rhode Island, filing fees and service of process fees are usually less than $250. Deposition transcripts cost $250 to $750.  Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyers also have to pay for Medical providers to write comprehensive Medical reports.

The costliest personal Injury expense is the cost of having Medical Doctors or experts testify at trial. We do everything we can to limit case costs.  For cases with lower values, we will discuss with you making reasonable choices regarding case costs.

Q: What is the process of a Rhode Island Personal Injury Claim?

A: We negotiate with the insurance company to get the best settlement possible. We exchange information with the insurance adjuster including proof of medical expenses, lost wages and proof of negligence. If we cannot reach an agreement with the insurance company that you are satisfied with, then we file a lawsuit. 

After a lawsuit is filed we may take depositions of important witnesses. Depositions usually take place in a lawyer's office.  The insurance company may request that our client be examined by a doctor selected by the insurance company. (This is usually known as an IME, or independent medical examination). If the lawsuit cannot be resolved, the case will be scheduled for trial. At any point in time, a Rhode Island Personal Injury, slip and fall or car accident lawsuit may be settled.

Q:  What is the value of my Rhode Island personal Injury claim?

A:  We assess and consider many variables in determining the value of your RI Car accident or Personal Injury claim. If Liability is uncertain then the value of the case will be lowered. In order to determine the value of the case, the attorneys must look at a combination of factors, including lost wages, pain and suffering, permanency of the injury, any scarring or disfigurement, loss of consortium, periods of disability, etc. Determining the value of a case is an art rather than a science. The amount of the medical bills incurred will be one important factor in determining the value of the case.

Q: What if I live outside of Rhode Island?

A:  We do everything we can to accommodate out of State Clients in their Rhode Island personal Injury Claims. You may never need to actually come to Rhode Island. If you do need to visit Rhode Island it will usually be for a deposition, IME or trial. In Most cases clients never need to come to Rhode Island for their Personal injury case. Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyer, David Slepkow will communicate with clients via, emails, fax and phone.
