Why Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, And ERISA Claims Require An Experienced Attorney
- The benefits of working with an attorney for your personal injury, medical malpractice, or ERISA claim
Even what appears to be the most simple personal injury case can, especially today, be very complicated. It can be complicated by some of the things we just talked about, including the presence of ERISA liens, non-ERISA liens, hospital liens, causation issues, and hiring the right experts in order to establish your claims. All of these factors come into play when you’re litigating any sort of claim, whether it’s a commercial litigation claim, personal injury claim, or whatever type of claim it is. I’ve been doing this now for 40 years, and my entire practice has evolved around these sort of issues. I was given the honor of being elected President of Rhode Island Trial Lawyers Association in 2001, which is a group of lawyers that primarily concentrates on litigation in personal injury type claims, and they saw fit to elect me president at that time.
Every year I try to make it a point to lecture on different aspects of the law, and I do that not only tell my colleagues and impart my knowledge to them, but also so I can keep up with the issues and stay relevant on what is going on in these quickly changing areas of the law. I do that quite often; I make it a point to lecture in Bar Association activities and in legal education for lawyers on a consistent basis annually. I stay involved in legal activities and am very active in the Bar Association, having served as President in our 6000 plus Association from July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023. I do this not only so that I can share my experience with my colleagues, but also so that I can learn from them and keep abreast and make sure that I am familiar with the cutting edge of what is going on in the ever-changing legal world.
The law may seem to change slowly, but there are always changes. We always have to be aware of what is developing in the legal world, and I try to do this throughout my career. I take a personal interest in all my clients. Amongst the three of us in my staff, every client who calls will reach one of us. I try to remain accessible all the time. When a client calls, I try to get back to the client in prompt fashion. I will know what your case is about because I’m the one that will be handling your case, and I give your case my personal attention. So, I think that’s what makes me a little bit different. I’ve been doing this for 40 years now, am and very happy with what I do. I think, for the most part, my clients are very happy with what I do, and I try to achieve good results for the client in as efficient a fashion as possible.
