Charlestown Car Accidents Lawyer

What to Do Following an Accident in Charlestown, RI 

We don’t get to choose when a car crash happens; but one thing is for sure, it’s always an unexpected and stressful event. So, if you’ve been injured, you need a car accident lawyer who will be available to you night and day, seven days a week, with personalized hours to work around your busy schedule. At Tapalian Law, Attorney David Tapalian focuses specifically on motor vehicle accident and personal injury law in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, meaning his expertise is in cases just like yours. Dedicated to providing each client with individualized attention, David and his team will advise you exactly what steps to take after your car accident in Charlestown. We will personally work with you from start to finish, keeping you informed of your personal injury claim throughout its duration.

One major component of a Rhode Island motor vehicle injury case is establishing proof of negligence against the driver who hit you. Tapalian Law will obtain essential documentation including medical records, police reports, witness statements, and critical evidence necessary to prove negligence on the part of the at-fault motorist. Our skilled attorney will then aggressively negotiate on your behalf to make sure you are awarded the maximum compensation you deserve for your damages. Following a car crash, the insurance company representing the driver responsible for causing the accident will want to speed up the settlement process by getting you to accept less money than your claim is worth. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Contact Tapalian Law at 401-552-5000, to schedule a no obligation, free consultation, to discuss your Charlestown car accident.

Dangerous Intersections

Auto accidents in Charlestown frequently occur at intersections, such as the intersection of U.S. post Road SB and Kings Factory Road to R.I. 216, which was named one of the most dangerous intersections in the New England Area and one of the top three most dangerous in the state of Rhode Island. In 2020, at the intersection of Old Post Road and Narrow Lane, a 25-year-old woman sustained serious injuries after a crash when her vehicle caught on fire and bystanders had to remove her from the automobile.

Three crashes in Charlestown involved fatalities in 2019 and another occurred in 2016 as reported in its city database. Most recently, in January 2021, a 67-year-old man died after two cars collided on Alton Carolina Road. According to the police report, the man crossed into another lane containing cars travelling in the opposite direction and crashed head-on with another automobile.

If you’ve been hurt, contact a car accident attorney in Charlestown RI to discuss your case and determine your eligibility to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. When a person dies at the hands of a careless driver, state law designates the negligent motorist as responsible for the damages resulting from the accident. A lawyer experienced with RI wrongful death claims can help eligible family members file a claim for financial recompense after the loss of a loved one. Although no amount of money can make up for a tragic loss, compensation can ease the financial strain of burial costs, funeral expenses, and loss of companionship.
