Jamestown Car Accidents Lawyer

When searching for a Jamestown car accident lawyer, you want someone who understands the area well. A lifetime resident of Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Attorney David Tapalian has practiced law in both states for more than 20 years and knows the area like the back of his hand. At Tapalian Law, our dedicated legal team focuses specifically on personal injury and car accident claims, helping injured people throughout RI, MA, and FL. Available to accommodate your busy schedule, our availability includes days, nights, and weekends, and we are always quick to respond to your questions and concerns via phone, text, or email.

Following any type of motor vehicle accident, seeking immediate medical help is of the utmost importance. The stress and shock of an unexpected event can sometimes mask painful symptoms that appear hours, or days, later and can be worsened by a delay in treatment. Internal injuries, which are common in certain types of crashes, are unseen to the eye and, possibly lacking any symptoms, can be life-threatening if left unchecked. After receiving attention from a medical professional, contact an experienced car accident attorney for help with your Jamestown accident. Attorney David Tapalian will discuss your case with you, at no-cost, and review police reports, medical records, and other pertinent evidence to determine your eligibility to file a successful personal injury claim in RI to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, vehicle repairs, and pain and suffering related to your auto accident. Call Tapalian Law at 401-552-5000, or schedule your free consultation online, to see how we can help you.

Types of Jamestown RI Crashes

Any number of factors can result in a motor vehicle crash- drunk driving, cell phone distractions, and speeding are frequent causes- and car accidents in Jamestown are no different. When injuries from an accident caused by a negligent driver turn fatal, a personal injury lawyer can help certain eligible family members file a wrongful death claim to seek monetary damages for their losses, including funeral and burial costs, as well as loss of companionship.

In January 2020, a 72-year-old woman was killed in a Jamestown crash on Route 148 West when her vehicle went over the center barrier hitting a metal pole and concrete post in the process. Years prior, in 2016, two drivers were killed, one being a police officer, on Interstate 95 when a reckless driver made an illegal U-turn and hit the police officer’s vehicle head-on. When a family member is a victim of a deadly car crash, grieving loved ones often don’t know where to turn for help. After a tragic loss, unexpected financial and logistic hurdles can adversely affect the grieving family and result in undue stress. Attorney David Tapalian and his skilled Rhode Island personal injury team can help to ease this stress and help the family receive the compensation they are entitled to, so they can focus on healing instead of worrying about finances.

Where to Go

Located in Newport County, Rhode Island, Jamestown was named as one of the top 500 wealthiest locations to live in 2016. Two Rhode Island governors, Benedict Arnold and Caleb Carr, lived in the town. Jamestown was a filming location for multiple films such as Wind and Me, Myself & Irene. TripAdvisor named the Beavertail Lighthouse and Park as the town’s top attraction. Its lighthouse is the third built in the United States and the first one in Rhode Island. Visitors enjoy the coastal sights and sunsets, as well as hiking the trails near the water. The town also attracts scuba divers at Fort Wetherill State Park which is a hotspot for boating and fishing as well. Another historic spot is the Jamestown Windmill which offers tours and is home to the popular annual Windmill Day. Volunteer Jamestown firefighters run the Fire Memorial Museum, allowing people to ride the firetruck and learn about the different equipment used to put out fires in the area.
