Smithfield Car Accidents

Smithfield Car Accident Lawyer

After getting hurt in any type of auto accident, medical treatment should always be your first priority. Even if you don’t experience immediate pain or visible trauma, the full extent of your injuries is unknown; some can be internal, while others may not manifest until days later and be extremely dangerous if left untreated. Seek prompt medical attention to prevent certain long-term damages that can occur if you delay getting help. Additionally, prompt medical treatment establishes stronger proof of the extent of your injuries in a future personal injury claim. If you experience injuries due to a crash caused by another driver, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your medical bills, property damage, and other losses by filing a personal injury claim in Rhode Island. To determine your eligibility, contact a car accident attorney in Smithfield as soon as possible to discuss the details of your incident. Attorney David Tapalian has been helping people injured in auto accidents throughout RI, MA, and FL, for over 20 years and offers a free consultation to discuss your situation, answer your questions, and determine what steps should be taken next.

Hiring a personal injury attorney is an important decision. The insurance company representing the at-fault party will take your case more seriously amidst the threat of arbitration and litigation. Without strong legal representation, an insurance adjuster will typically offer you a minimal settlement in hopes that you will accept the low offer and save them money. Attorney Tapalian is well-known throughout Rhode Island and knows the proper actions to take so your case achieves its full potential and you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your monetary, and non-monetary, losses. Your Smithfield car accident claim will be handled directly by David and his experienced team, who dedicate their time to personal injury and car accident cases, just like yours. With availability seven days a week, including evenings, your needs are our top priority and we will work around your busy schedule.

Recent Smithfield Motor Vehicle Collisions

In May 2020, an 18-year-old woman was charged with driving under the influence after her car flipped over and her passenger was transported to the hospital with serious bodily injury.

The town experienced multiple traffic fatalities in 2020. In October 2020, a 64-year-old woman walking along the center lane of Interstate 295 North was hit by a vehicle and later pronounced dead. This accident came a few days after another woman was killed while walking her dog at the intersection of Dean Avenue and Brook Street. Earlier that year, in June, a man was killed on Route 44 after his car collided with a converted military truck. The crash involved multiple vehicles. The truck initially collided with the rear of another vehicle, causing it to hit the man’s car resulting in deadly injuries.

Town Info & Links

Situated in Providence County, Smithfield is home to Bryant University. Former Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo was from Smithfield, as well as actor Danny Smith from Family Guy. A trip to Jaswell’s Farm never disappoints and offers multiple types of fruit picking, farm tours, and popular candy apples. The Mowry Conservation Area is great for hiking, dog-walking, and to view what some residents deem “Smithfield’s version of Pride Rock from the Lion King”. Another option is to stop by the Powder Mill Ledges Wildlife Refuge for birdwatching, hiking, and snowshoeing. The location is also a prime location for nature photographers. Steere Orchard also makes the list of best Smithfield destinations and is a great place to go apple-picking and buy delicious fruit varieties from their farm stand.
