FAQs on Rhode Island Personal Injury Law
What are the different types of compensation for personal injury cases in Rhode Island?
The five basic types of damages for personal injury cases are:
- Past Economic Damages
- Past Non-Economic Damages
- Future Economic Damages
- Future Non-Economic Damages
- Punitive Damages
Economic damages are those directly related to the financial harm caused by your injury—such as medical expenses, lost earnings, and lost capacity of earnings. Non-economic damages refers to the impact the injury has on your personal well-being and includes things like pain and suffering, mental anguish, physical impairment, and a loss of ability to enjoy life.
Punitive damages are those awarded simply as a way to punish the responsible party. These are not awarded often, because it requires proving the wrongdoer had evil intent or showed a conscious disregard for the safety of others.
What is an important thing to do after you’ve been injured?
If you want to adequately convince a jury and insurance companies that you were genuinely injured in an accident, it is vital to keep all of your medical appointments. It’s important for your health and keeps the court from trying to reduce the amount of your recovery for failure to mitigate the damage to your health.

We do not charge potential clients for initial consultations on their personal injury cases. You’re free to discuss your case with us at no obligation.
