If you or a loved one have suffered a spinal cord injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Spinal cord injuries from an automotive or workplace accident affected nearly 347,000 people in 2016, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center. Unlike most injuries, damage to your spinal cord can be permanent and can cause irreversible damage to victims and their families. When negligent parties cause spinal cord injuries, you can hold them financially accountable for their carelessness, but you will likely need a lawyer’s help.
At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we believe that companies and people that injure others, whether accidental or not, should be held responsible. That is why our firm has helped the people of Rhode Island for decades with their personal injury claims.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injury claims can be some of the most difficult cases brought to court. Especially in situations where a medical practice or a workplace is at fault, companies and institutions will hire big-shot lawyers to fight against you. No one wants to lose money, and these lawyers will help these companies take advantage of your emotional and physical state to avoid a fair settlement.
In addition, personal injury claims can be complicated. You will have to prove that the person who injured you was negligent and therefore responsible for your injury. You will have to compile mountains of evidence, including deposing expert witnesses and interpreting complex medical records, in order to prevail in your claim, all while dealing with a serious injury.
By hiring a Newport personal injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., you can focus on your recovery and rest assured that you are in good hands. We can help you with all your legal needs and fight for you against corrupt institutions that are trying to ignore their moral obligations. With a lawyer’s help, you are more likely to receive the full amount of compensation you deserve.

Cases We Handle
Though we do not often consider the risk in our everyday lives, spinal cord injuries are not as uncommon as we would like to think. In fact, there are approximately 17,000 new cases of spinal cord injury each year, and this number is only growing. This may be because there are so many different types of circumstances that may cause a spinal cord injury.
The main personal injury cases that involve spinal cord injuries are:
- Workplace Accidents – Especially in cases where you must handle heavy machinery or in jobs where you must be on your feet frequently, you are at risk for a workplace accident. Whether you slip and fall or operate a device that is defective, you may seek compensation for your spinal cord injury.
- Medical Malpractice – Though we would like to be able to put our trust in them, sometimes doctors make mistakes too. If you or a loved one received a spinal cord injury because of a doctor’s negligence, you will want to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
- Domestic Abuse/Interpersonal Violence – Injuries caused by violence can end in life-altering spinal cord injuries. Though the emotional and physical damage may not be reversed, you may seek help covering medical expenses and lost wages from your injury.
- General Negligence – If you believe your injury was because of the negligence of another party and you do not fall into one of the above categories, you should still contact a lawyer to discuss the details of your case. Ultimately, it should not be your responsibility to cover damages that you did not cause
When you suffer from a spinal cord injury, there are parts of your life that will be significantly altered. Most often, victims seek compensation for these types of damages that have affected their everyday life:
- Medical Bills
- Loss of Wages
- Emotional Distress
- Ongoing Rehabilitation
- Pain and Suffering
- Assistive Devices
- Modifications to the Home
At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we believe that victims should not be punished for the mistakes of others. If any of these cases apply to you, visit our homepage or call us immediately. We would love to work with you to find the justice and compensation that you deserve.
