The Value of Getting A Great Rhode Island Car Accident Lawyer

By Terry Lancie

Having an experienced Rhode Island car accident attorney is very important if you have been involved in a vehicular accident in Rhode Island.

Despite important car and road improvements, car accidents still remain a leading cause of injury and death in Rhode Island. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, then we highly recommend that you meet with a Rhode Island car accident attorney.

When it comes to car accidents, the party at fault is typically not the people who have been injured. Of course not all car crashes will result in litigation. Accidents in which there are no injuries or minor injuries can sometimes be resolved directly with driver's car insurance company.

When a Rhode Island car crash causes major injuries and death, lawsuits begin to come into play.

Often, the car accident is not your fault. If you have suffered injuries from an accident, or had a member of your family killed in an accident, having a Rhode Island car accident attorney working for you can help you find the legal justice that you and your family deserve.

Many people do not realize how devastating the results of a car accident can be until they are involved in one. Car accidents, whether minor or severe, can cause serious financial and health impairments for all those involved..

In Rhode Island, the vast majority of car accident related deaths are caused by roadway departures. A significant percentage of vehicular accident related deaths occur at intersections, other deaths involve both light and heavy trucks. Unfortunately many of these accidents are alcohol related-or are due to excessive speed. Having a Rhode Island car accident lawyer working for you can help tremendously under these dire circumstances.

Car crashes can also have an affect on bicyclists and pedestrians. Unfortunately pedestrians and bicyclists are killed and injured each year in Rhode Island, due to negligence on the car driver's behalf.

Driver distractions and driver error are two of the main causes of Rhode Island car accidents. Cell phone use (especially texting while driving) has caused many avoidable car accidents. Inclement weather conditions also cause numerous car accidents, especially during Rhode Islands notably harsh winter season.

Vehicluar defects and blowouts also lead to numerous car crashes each year. Faulty car design and/or manufacturer defects can also cause injuries. In these situations cases are not filed against another driver, but are instead filed against the vehicle manufacturer or a particular governmental agency.

Even more specialized litigation cases emerge in hit and run incidents, car-pedestrian accidents, bus accidents, motorcycle to car accidents and vehicular crashes caused by road debris. These types of crashes all too often result in devastating consequences for victims.

Recently, the state of Rhode Island has enacted specific laws with hopes of increasing seat belt usage and decreasing driving under the influence. Rhode Island has also passed laws with the intent of further protecting innocent victims of vehicular accidents.

It is important to contact a Rhode Island car accident lawyer as soon as possible after a vehicular accident. More often than not, professional litigation is necessary in order to receive the monetary compensation a victim or family deserves.

If you have been hurt by another driver's negligence, then be sure to contact a Rhode Island car accident attorney. At the Law Offices of Kevin P. Landry, we will protect your rights and help you get the financial compensation you may very well be entitled to receive.
