Client-Focused & Results-Driven Representation in Rhode Island

When another person, company, or entity acts negligently and you are injured as a result, you have the right to take legal action. By filing a personal injury claim, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other losses.

At Karns & Kerrison, we have more than 85 years of collective experience and have recovered over $250 million on behalf of injured victims throughout the state. Our Providence personal injury attorneys understand just how devastating an unexpected accident or injury can be for both you and your family. We handle a wide range of personal injury cases with a particular focus on traumatic brain injuries and wrongful death claims. If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to someone else’s careless, reckless, or intentional actions, we invite you to reach out to our team as soon as possible for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Contact us online or call (888) 281-3100 to make an appointment. We have locations in Providence and Middletown and proudly serve clients throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Our firm assists clients in a variety of complex personal injury and wrongful death cases. We have taken on numerous major insurance providers—and won.

Our personal injury attorneys regularly assist clients with cases involving:

We understand that no amount of financial compensation can make up for the pain and suffering you have been through; however, a fair recovery can allow you to obtain the medical treatment you need without the financial burdens often associated with a serious accident.

Why Choose Our Firm?

Most insurance companies are in the business of making money. Unfortunately, this means that they often devalue or deny rightful injury claims in an effort to minimize costs and maximize profits. When you are injured through no fault of your own, it is critical that you have an experienced attorney on your side who can help you fight for the just compensation you are owed.

When you choose Karns & Kerrison, you start from a place of strength thanks, in part, to our reputation for dedicated representation and tireless advocacy for our clients. Insurance companies know who we are—and they know that we will not back down in our fight to secure fair settlements for our clients. When insurance companies refuse to settle, we are not afraid to take complex claims to trial. Our personal injury lawyers in Providence are here to answer your questions and guide you throughout the legal process.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I do after an accident?

    Call an attorney after you have been in an accident. You should never speak to any insurance company directly and should always go through your lawyer. Speaking to the insurance company directly can never benefit your case and it can only benefit the insurance company.

  • How do I know if I have a claim?

    If you have been injured as a result of someone making a mistake, what the law calls negligence, then chances are you have a personal injury case. This can include someone operating a motor vehicle negligently and striking you or your car, a dog on the loose that bites you, falling on defects or substances that should not be left where they are, a physician making a mistake, or any type of negligence that causes your injury.

  • Will I have to go to court?

    Often times, cases can be settled without filing a lawsuit, getting into litigation and certainly without going to court. However, note that if the case will take longer than three years due to complications, it is important to put the case into a lawsuit as there are statutes of limitations that limit the length of time you can pursue your case without it being placed into a lawsuit. In addition, if there are other obvious complications, including who was at fault or the relationship of your injuries to the accident, then the case should be placed into a lawsuit so that your lawyer can use the litigation to prove who was at fault and what injuries are related to the accident.
