Hurt in a Providence Car Accident or Slip & Fall Accident?

Serving Rhode Island and Massachusetts residents, our Providence personal injury attorneys know getting hurt is serious business. Severe accidents can happen suddenly and without warning and can result in life-altering injuries. Everyday tasks like driving to work, a leisurely bike ride, or a trip to the local supermarket can all result in monumental changes if you, or a loved one, are hurt by someone else’s negligent actions. A distracted driver on a cell phone can cause an automobile collision during a routine commute to work, a drunk driver can hit an innocent bicyclist, and a spill left on the floor of the grocery store can result in a dangerous slip and fall. Suffering harm due to another’s careless actions can happen almost anywhere, and anytime. After receiving medical help, it is critical to take action following a car accident, slip and fall, bicycle accident, motorcycle crash, dog bite, or any type of incident where you are injured due to another’s negligence. Providence personal injury lawyer David Tapalian offers each victim and their family the dedicated, individual attention they deserve.

Whether you have been hurt in a car crash or other type of accident, you need the expertise of a skilled personal injury attorney on your side.

Our Providence injury attorneys won’t back down until we get what is rightfully yours.

Proving Negligence in a Claim for Compensation

The Rhode Island legal system is complex and one best dealt with by a skilled injury lawyer. In order to recover compensation following an accident, based on Rhode Island law you must be able to show that the person who caused your injuries failed to act with the same care that a sensible person would use in a similar situation. It must be shown that this failure to act with care caused your injuries. For example, a motorist may rear-end your vehicle on I-95 in Providence because they were texting on a cell phone. Witnesses at the crash scene provide written statements acknowledging this fact, and a police officer issues a traffic violation to the driver who caused the crash. Hospital and medical records document the injuries you incurred, a back and neck injury due to whiplash from your car being rear-ended, that correspond with the accident. In brief, the traffic violation shows that the driver failed to operate their vehicle with proper care for the safety of others, the driver hit your car therefore breaching their duty to drive safely, and the medical documentation shows the injuries you incurred in the accident are in line with this particular crash. From there, proper compensation for your damages and losses will be negotiated by your personal injury attorney on your behalf. This example is simple and straight-forward, but most personal injury cases are anything but simple. In actuality, injury claims are multi-faceted and can become complex- the insurance company may refuse to offer a fair and just amount for your damages and losses, a defendant can refute the claim of negligence, opposing counsel may argue you had a preexisting medical condition, witnesses may change their stories- the variables are innumerable which is why you need aggressive legal representation on your side.
