If you have been injured in an automobile accident, or by a defective product or food, you need a knowledgeable attorney by your side to help navigate the insurance and legal system. We have experience in all types of personal injury and product liability, including:
- Wrongful death
- Automobile accidents
- Hit and runs
- Food poisoning
- Maritime (boat) accidents
- Dog bites
- Slip and falls
- Defective products and packaging

The sooner you hire an attorney, the better your chances are for a successful recovery and to avoid losing your rights for recovery under the Statute of Limitations. The attorneys at Gorham & Gorham can help establish liability of the other party early on, and establish your damages with the insurance company. The sooner the insurance company has this information, the quicker and larger your settlement will likely be.
The amount of compensation a victim obtains can vary, as each case is unique. We will review your case, and gather evidence to support your claims for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Permanent impairment
Often, cases settle without having to go to Court. We present your case to the insurance company and negotiate a favorable settlement. If we are unable to come to an agreeable settlement, we will file suit and stay with your case through trial. We have litigated many cases up to trial, and on appeal to the Rhode Island Supreme Court, and we have medical experts, accident reconstructionist, accountants, and other experts at our disposal who can testify on your behalf.
