Types of Personal Injury Cases in Lincoln, RI Auto Accidents

Car accidents are a common source of personal injury all over Providence County. Attorney Tapalian and his team won $25,000 for one Lincoln client who was hurt in a minor accident on Route 146, a frequent location for crashes in the area. Tapalian Law’s skilled injury experts negotiated with the insurance company who was trying to hold his client at fault for the wreck. They were able to prove that their client was not fully responsible for the crash and the insurance company accepted accountability and awarded compensation to the client for their damages. 

Medical Mistakes

The town of Lincoln is home to multiple medical centers with specialists in various medical treatments and medical imaging. While most patients receive excellent treatment, there is the possibility of medical malpractice anywhere, even if the damage was unintentional. If you feel you suffered harm due to a medical mistake that resulted in a new injury, worsened state, or the failure to adequately treat your present condition, Attorney Tapalian and his team can help you file a medical malpractice claim to cover the costs of the economic and non-economic losses you sustained as a result of someone’s mistake or negligence. Common examples of medical malpractice include errors in medication, botched surgery, misdiagnosis, and mistakes with anesthesia.

Dog Bites

Oft referred to as man’s best friend, even the most docile family dog can become scared or feel threatened under certain circumstances and attack an innocent person. Dog bites can result in great physical harm and psychological distress to the victim, especially when the person hurt is a young child. Depending on the severity of the damage inflicted by the animal, multiple surgeries may be required as well as long term counseling to overcome the lingering trauma. As a personal injury lawyer in Lincoln, Attorney Tapalian works with victims of dog bites in RI and MA to get them money for their medical bills, pain and suffering and any scarring that may occur as a result of the trauma. Our long-term expertise with dog bite injury laws makes us well equipped to help both children and adults. 

Slips, Trips, and Falls

Tapalian Law also helps clients who have been hurt in a slip and fall accident. Whether the incident occurred at a grocery store, a restaurant, in a parking lot, or another establishment, you may have a potential claim for benefits if your slip, trip, or fall injury occurred due to a negligent or reckless action on behalf of the establishment. Actions that may result in a fall include a failure to remove snow and ice, maintain property repairs, or promptly clean up a spill.

As with all personal injury claims our firm takes on, there is no money or retainer owed when you hire Tapalian Law to represent you in your case. From start to finish, we will work diligently to make sure you are treated fairly and are justly compensated for your financial losses. Our injury firm is only paid when you receive compensation for your damages.
