I was involved in a car accident on a residential street in Barrington, RI and pretty seriously injured. I was contacted by someone who I think represents an attorney and she is pressuring me saying I should hire an attorney fast. What’s the statute on limitations to file a personal injury claim in RI and what difference does it really make if I hire a lawyer now or in a couple of months?
The RI statute of limitations is generally three years. If you are concerned that someone may be trying to get you to hire an attorney that they either work with or have a relation to, it is probably best to avoid contact with them Attorney’s are not supposed to actively solicit clients in that manner and this would probably be a violation of the rules governing the practice of law. As to when you should hire an attorney, that is solely up to you, but I can assure you that you are always better off with a competent attorney in your corner than without.
