Richmond Car Accident Attorney

The aftermath following a serious motor vehicle crash is an extremely stressful time for everyone involved. There are doctors to visit, injuries to tend to, car repairs to make, police reports to obtain, and insurance companies to answer to. Dealing with these burdens while hospitalized or recuperating from your injuries at home can prove tremendously difficult. Suffering additional stress when you are trying to heal is never beneficial. That’s why it’s important to get help from an experienced attorney for your Richmond auto accident. Attorney David Tapalian has over two decades of personal injury expertise helping victims of injury all over Rhode Island and Massachusetts, including car accident victims in Richmond.

The most critical step to take following a crash is to seek immediate medical attention. Depending on the severity of the collision, you may be rushed to the nearest hospital via ambulance, or necessitate a visit to your family physician or local walk-in medical clinic. Even if you don’t feel seriously hurt, it’s vital to seek medical help right away as some dangerous conditions, such as internal bleeding, can go unseen but become quickly life-threatening in a matter of hours or days. A visit to the emergency room or medical clinic can rule out life-threatening injuries and ensure you receive the treatment you need. Seeking medical help right after your crash can also bolster your potential personal injury case by establishing proof of the damages your body sustained.

Richmond Motor Vehicle Accidents

Like most cities and towns throughout the state, Richmond has its fair share of auto accidents. Recently, in February 2021, a drunk driver hit a tree on KG Ranch Road and the car she was driving was deemed stolen and driver was also charged with driving under the influence. A speeding driver also crashed on Interstate 95 in July 2020 resulting in her car flipping over multiple times. The 35-year-old driver was ejected from the vehicle and died from her injuries. In July 2017, a 37-year-old woman was killed after the car she was in hit multiple trees and ejected her from the vehicle. The driver of that car fled the scene but was later found and charged. It can be scary when an at-fault driver leaves the scene, and this can make the process of receiving compensation even more difficult. If this happens to you, speaking with a local personal injury lawyer will not only help ease your fears but also increase the likelihood that you recover the full amount of money you deserve after a hit and run crash.

City data declared one death from a Richmond car accident in 2018 and four deaths in 2017. In April 2021, a pedestrian was killed while he was walking across Interstate 95 when he was hit by a tractor trailer driving in the low-speed lane. On the same highway, in November 2018, two people died after a Richmond car crash. A driver lost control of their vehicle, hit another car, flipped over, and caught on fire. A loved one’s death is never easy, and is a very tumultuous time for the family left behind. When the death was caused by a car accident, there are multiple obstacles to encounter and an experienced attorney can assist the family as well as file a wrongful death claim if the loved one was killed by a reckless driver.
