Slip and Fall Settlement

A 62 year old woman from Connecticut, visiting Rhode Island, fell on a defect in the area of a crosswalk striking her nose and causing a fracture. There was no surgery involved. Suit was filed by Karns Law Group after notice was given against the city involved and also against the contractor and subcontractors who were working on the road. After suit was filed and the matter went to arbitration, the Karns Law Group settled the case for $57,500.00 against two of the four defendants.

Child Support Liens

At the initial consultation with an attorney for a potential personal injury claim, it is extremely important to make the attorney privy to any and all information regarding any child support debt that you may have.

Underinsurance Coverage (UM)

Underinsurance coverage is automobile insurance you place on your vehicle to protect you or occupants of your vehicle, and in some cases household residents who are not in your vehicle, when injured by another person operating another vehicle without enough coverage. That is to say, when the person causing the accident does not have enough coverage, he or she becomes underinsured and your own underinsurance coverage comes into play.

Pedestrian - Wrongful Death Claim

In 2011, the Insurance Research Council estimated that roughly 14% of Rhode Island drivers were on the road with no car insurance. This is even slightly higher than the national average of 13%. While these numbers may not mean much on their face, they have a large impact when you are struck by a vehicle that falls into this 14% with no coverage for your property damage or injuries.
