A Word About Bankruptcy and Personal Injury Claims
In Rhode Island, the money that you receive from a personal injury case is not exempt in bankruptcy. This is unfortunate because many people who have been through a lengthy personal injury case are in great financial hardship. They may need to declare bankruptcy. If your personal injury settlement comes through while you are working through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the bankruptcy trustee is likely to take that money to pay your creditors.
Chapter 7 bankrupties in Massachusetts are handled differently than in Rhode Island. We handle cases in both states so ask us about it.
