Law Firm Overview

Gemma Law Associates is a personal injury law firm based in Providence, Rhode Island providing legal services and representation to injured clients to clients throughout the surrounding areas of Rhode Island.
The firm’s founder and president, Alfred Gemma, has been a legal practitioner for over 50 years and is joined in his practice by his sons Peter and Mark. The firm’s staff combines well over 150 years of legal experience between them and the firm has received multiple awards and professional accolades.

The team at Gemma Law Associates has successfully assisted clients with all types of personal injury cases. They handle cases of all levels of complexity and seriousness, from simple slip-and-fall accidents all the way to catastrophic injuries and even wrongful death. A large portion of the firm’s practice is dedicated to assisting the victims of motor vehicle accidents, but the firm also handles many other types of injury claims including medical malpractice and Social Security Disability (SSD). The firm is also proud to represent the interests of injured workers in cases of worker’s compensation claims. In addition to their thriving personal injury practice the firm also handles select cases in other areas such as family law, bankruptcy and criminal defense.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, it is strongly advised that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Insurance companies will seek to take advantage of your compromised state and get you to make a hasty settlement out of desperation, leading you to get a smaller amount than you may be entitled to. The team at Gemma Law Associates will stand up for your rights and make sure that justice is done and you receive the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Areas of Law Description

Gemma Law Associates provides legal services and representation in the following areas of law:

- Personal Injury

A personal injury is defined as harm inflicted on an individual’s body or mind that was caused by the negligence, error or malicious intent of another person or party. While anyone can be hurt in an unpreventable accident, personal injury under the law is different in that it could have – or should have – been prevented. When that is the case, the injured person may be entitled to money for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and a variety of other damages. The attorneys at Gemma Law Associates, Inc. have helped victims of personal injury for more than four decades.

- Motor Vehicle Accidents

Rhode Island’s highways and roads are vital channels for travel, work and commerce – but they can also be dangerous and deadly. Negligent or careless driving is a factor in many accidents. Speeding and alcohol also play key roles. Whether you drive a passenger car, a motorcycle or travel on a route populated by commercial trucks, always proceed with caution – vehicle accidents can happen at any moment with very serious consequences. If you've suffered a serious personal injury from a vehicle accident, the lawyers at Gemma Law Associates, Inc. can help.

- Medical Malpractice

If you've been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be entitled money for your medical bills, your lost wages or benefits, and the pain and suffering you've endured. The attorneys at Gemma Law Associates, Inc. have handled medical malpractice cases for decades – and we’ve won multi-million dollar settlements on behalf of injured clients across the state of Rhode Island. We have a successful malpractice litigation track record, and we are prepared to argue on your behalf in the courtroom if necessary to recover the damages you deserve.

- Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents typically involve the legal area known as premises liability. All property owners have a legal obligation to provide safely maintained premises. For instance: The grocery store owner has a duty to quickly clean up spills on his floor so that no one will slip while shopping. The theater owner has a duty to fix a broken stair railing so that no one will trip and fall when exiting the theater. At Gemma Law Associates, Inc., we know that not all accidents are within a property owner or manager's control.

- Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases require experienced and skilled legal care. Lawyers for the defendant may try to demonstrate that the victim shared blame for his or her injuries, which can reduce damages. Insurance companies will try to minimize their payout by offering settlement low amounts. The law firm of Gemma Law Associates, Inc. has more than four decades of experience representing clients in their time of need. Our attorneys will handle your case with great sensitivity, and we will focus on holding accountable those at fault for your loved one's death.

- Dangerous Drugs

Not every pharmaceutical product works as intended or advertised by its manufacturer. In many cases, the drug may have been placed on the market without the extensive testing required by law, or the pharmaceutical company may have ignored the drug’s potential for serious and deadly side effects and opted to choose profit over patient safety. At Gemma Law Associates, Inc., we believe the manufacturers, distributors and sellers of dangerous drugs need to be held fully accountable, and we are committed to recovering compensation for those who have been harmed by these products.

- Product Liability

Product injury cases are complex. Attorneys must determine the responsible parties and prove that their wrongful actions were directly to blame for the injury. That is not always easy to do when the product has passed from the manufacturer to a wholesaler or retailer before reaching the injured consumer. Successful claims involve extensive investigation, a thorough knowledge of the applicable laws, and effective evidence that demonstrates how the liable party violated industry standards, labeling laws or safety regulations.

- Construction Accidents

The Providence attorneys of Gemma Law Associates, Inc. make certain that our construction accident clients receive the maximum amount allowed by law for injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other expenses. We have been representing injured construction workers throughout the state of Rhode Island including North Providence, Newport, Bristol County, Kent County and Providence County for 45 years – and we can help you.

- Asbestos Mesothelioma

When products containing asbestos are manufactured or disturbed, they may release microscopic fragments of the mineral into the air. These fragments can be inhaled into a person’s lungs or can settle onto a person’s body and later inhaled by someone else. Once they’re inhaled, asbestos fibers can cause irreversible harm. Exposure to asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, a cancer that affects the cells of the membranes surrounding the body’s internal organs such as the lungs. If you or anyone you know has been exposed to asbestos or diagnosed with mesothelioma, speak to the attorneys at Gemma Law Associates immediately.

- Workers' Compensation

Employers are required to provide a reasonably safe workplace for their employees. Even so, thousands of employees are injured on the job every year. Employees that are injured as a result of accidents at work are covered under a state-mandated program known as workers’ compensation. Because it may be difficult to determine the complete circumstances surrounding a workplace injury, you should consider having your case evaluated by an attorney. The Providence workers’ compensation attorneys of Gemma Law Associates, Inc. have the experience to ensure that you are receiving all of the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled.

- Nursing Home Injuries

The attorneys at Gemma Law Associates, Inc. have represented many Rhode Island victims of nursing home injuries. Based upon our experience, we have learned that family and friends are often the first line of defense. If you have a loved one living in a nursing home, one of the most important things you can do is to watch for signs of potential injury.

- Inadequate Premises Security

An experienced lawyer can help evaluate the circumstances surrounding inadequate security. The premises liability lawyers at Gemma Law Associates, Inc. investigate negligent security cases and identify security lapses that should have been dealt with to prevent foreseeable injury to others. We understand that inadequate security cases often involve psychological distress in addition to any physical injuries that occurred.

- Bankruptcy

If you are facing serious financial challenges, it is important to seek the counsel of a skilled bankruptcy attorney to help you assess your legal options. For more than 45 years the skilled bankruptcy attorneys of Gemma Law Associates, Inc. have been helping families that have financial troubles – and we can help you. We represent clients throughout the state of Rhode Island including Washington County, Newport County, Woonsocket, Providence, Pawtucket and Warwick.

- Divorce

Divorce is never easy; the break-up of families and the separation of loved ones is a complex process that requires intensely personal decisions. At Gemma Law Associates, Inc., we have helped many clients through the difficult divorce process. We may not be able to alleviate the emotional pain that divorce inevitably causes, but we can help you navigate Rhode Island’s divorce laws while looking out for the best interests of you and your children.

- Social Security Claims (SSI / SSDI)

Social Security Claims are often a source of frustration and confusion. People who apply for Social Security Disability face mountains of paperwork and a tough application process that results in denial in more than half of all cases. However, if you have a disability that prevents you from earning a living, you shouldn't let the process prevent you from filing for benefits you are entitled to receive. The lawyers of Gemma Law Associates, Inc., with decades of legal experience, have developed a thorough understanding of the Social Security Administration's rules and regulations. We know the “red flags” that stand out to claim reviewers – and we're able to more effectively prepare our clients' application materials to ensure all documentation is clear and supports the disability claim.

- Criminal Defense

A criminal defense attorney provides legal representation when you have been charged with a crime. Whether the crime involves a traffic violation, DUI, theft, assault or other serious legal infractions, immediate and skillful legal assistance is vital. The penalties for criminal charges can be extremely serious. If you have been charged with a crime, you can lose driving privileges, pay steep fines and serve jail time. The criminal defense attorneys at Gemma Law Associates, Inc. have a comprehensive understanding of Rhode Island criminal law and we know how to apply relevant statutes on our clients’ behalf.
