Many people do not know that they only have a certain amount of time to bring a lawsuit after they have been injured.

In Rhode Island, this amount of time, called the “statute of limitations” is generally 3 years from the time of the injury.

There are several exceptions to this general rule, including if the injured party was a minor at the time of the incident or if the injured party did not discover the negligence until a later date.
