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 Rhode Island are here to answer your questions and guide you throughout the legal process.

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.
