West Greenwich Car Accidents Lawyer

After you are involved in any type of auto accident, your first priority is your health and safety. Severe injuries will require an ambulance to the local hospital emergency room. Less serious injuries still require immediate medical treatment, even if it only appears you suffered minor scrapes and bruises. Some ailments may be internal, while others may manifest hours, or days, later and it’s critical these are discovered and treated in a timely manner. Once you have sought proper medical help, contact an experienced car accident attorney in West Greenwich. As a highly respected lawyer practicing throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Florida, for over 20 years, Attorney David Tapalian has helped hundreds of clients who have suffered injuries in all types of accidents, including motor vehicle collisions. When you contact the dedicated personal injury team at Tapalian Law, we will direct you what steps to take next. It is understandable you will have a number of questions and concerns and we will discuss your situation in detail and determine how we can best assist you.

Filing a RI Personal Injury Claim

Once you decide to proceed with filing a personal injury claim, your legal team will collect evidence such as police reports, witness statements, and as needed, obtain surveillance footage and utilize other resources to establish fault. As Rhode Island is a comparative negligence state, responsibility for the incident may be shared by more than one party using a shared fault percentage. If it’s completely clear that the other driver is fully at fault for your injuries, your claim may be more straightforward and settled quickly. However, when fault is not cut and dry, as is often the case, your lawyer will have extensive negotiations with the other insurance company, or several companies if multiple parties were involved. This is where the process can become complex. Eventually, in most cases, the legal teams will come to terms on an equitable settlement. The settlement for your West Greenwich car accident claim may include compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and any future medical treatment deemed necessary.

As the circumstances surrounding every crash varies, so does each individual car accident settlement. An experienced West Greenwich lawyer like Attorney Tapalian will explain each step in the process and keep you informed along the way. Tapalian Law receives no money until you receive compensation for your accident. Call us today for a free, no obligation consultation at 401-552-5000, or contact us online to learn more.

Local Crashes

Interstate 95 in W. Greenwich is known as a dangerous highway, resulting in three fatalities within approximately a three-month period in 2021. One of them occurred in April when a 45-year-old man was killed when he lost control of his car while navigating a curve in the road and rolled over. On Interstate 95 North in August 2020, two people were seriously injured following a West Greenwich car accident, possibly caused by speeding, where both occupants were ejected from the vehicle after hitting multiple trees. The 19-year-old driver died the next day. Only a month prior, a 55-year-old man was killed on that same highway after his car flipped over multiple times and caught on fire. Police believe speed may have played a role in causing this crash as well.

A serious auto accident has the potential to change your life whether you were in the car yourself or a family member was. A family member’s death is devastating, especially if the cause could have been prevented. You may be faced with economic and logistical demands on top of grieving. While no amount of money can replace your loved one, an accident attorney in Rhode Island may be able to assist you with filing a wrongful death claim to seek compensation on behalf of your loved one.
