Practices

Carrara Dayian P.C. is an accessible and aggressive team of skilled litigators. Our primary focus is first listing to the client to be able to promptly satisfy our client’s goals and needs, including delivering effective legal representation in all phases of civil litigation or at arbitration or mediation.

Our trial practice takes us to all of the State & Federal Courts in Rhode Island & Massachusetts, including the Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation Court, the Massachusetts Department of Industrial Accidents, The Rhode Island Family Court and the Massachusetts Probate & Family Court; as well as Boards, Agencies & Commissions; Regulatory Boards and Municipal matters.

We are also familiar with the interconnecting web of State & Federal statutes and their effect on cases in the Court system, including HIPPA and the impact of Medicare Set Asides with respect to the approval of settlements under the Act and the Court’s obligation to consider the best interest consideration for Medicare & Medicaid services. Currently, Medicare Set-Aside Custodial Agreements and Medicare Set-Aside Agreements (escrow accounts) have been recognized as a way of balancing Medicare’s interest in a workers’ compensation settlement. We counsel our clients in that regard so that our clients obtain the necessary prior approval of the set-aside amounts based upon the case facts and the required medical treatment.

Additionally, we work with clients and risk managers regarding issues of notice, adjustment of claims and coverage questions; we provide coverage opinions and representation in first and third party claims; we advise clients on insurance coverage and bad faith claims; defense and indemnity issues in construction and general liability matters. We also handle matters in the following areas: personal and commercial automobile and premises liability claims, negligence, construction matters, fraud litigation & investigation, product liability, & breach of contract and warranty litigation. We have also presented seminars regarding bad faith claims, claims handling, and liability to several of our clients.
