Types of Coventry Crashes

Unfortunately, car accidents occur frequently in Coventry. In April 2021, a 42-year-old man was killed, and a woman injured, after a crash on Flat River Road, also known as Route 117, involving two cars. On Tiogue Avenue in August 2020, two people sustained severe injuries after two cars collided in a head-on collision. The driver and passenger of one of the vehicles was found to be experiencing a medical emergency, possibly drug related, and the vehicle was also found to have been previously involved in a hit and run accident in Exeter, Rhode Island.

When an automobile collision involves multiple vehicles, such as the February 2020 crash at the intersection of Knotty Oak Road and Highwood Drive, determining who is responsible can be difficult. In this instance, one car swerved since another vehicle was driving straight toward them in the wrong direction and ended up getting sideswiped. The car immediately behind them was hit head on. One man was brought to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Crashes involving more than two vehicles can get complicated when it comes to determining who is at fault. An experienced car accident lawyer like David Tapalian can help you navigate the tangled web of multiple parties and insurance companies to make sure your legal rights are a priority.  

Data on fatal accidents in Coventry found that in both 2019 and 2018, one person died due to a car crash, while five people died in 2017. Reckless drivers are a dangerous threat to others on the road, including themselves. For instance, a female motorist was speeding on Washington Street and hit a telephone pole in February 2019. The 21-year-old passenger died because of the incident and the driver was charged with driving to endanger. Rhode Island Statute § 10-7-1 states that a reckless driver will be held responsible for any death occurring due to their actions. Coventry RI Attorney Dave Tapalian can explain the process of considering a wrongful death claim after a loved one was killed in a car accident. No amount of money can replace a loved one, but compensation can ease the financial and logistical hardships that can occur following the incident a little easier.
