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.
- 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.
- Medical Malpractice
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. 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. 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
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. 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.
- Asbestos Mesothelioma
When products containing asbestos are manufactured or disturbed, they may release microscopic fragments of the mineral into the air. 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. 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.
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.
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)
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. 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.
