Drunk Driving Car Accidents

Warwick Car Accident Lawyer Helping Victims of Drunk Driving

The second largest city in Rhode Island, Warwick roads are plenty busy with drivers, whether commuting to work or visiting one of the many local shopping areas. Being home to T.F. Green Airport, the busiest Rhode Island airfield handling over a million passengers a year, adds more traffic to this already busy city. Traveling by car through Warwick via Interstates 95 and 295 is a convenient method of access from Connecticut and other Rhode Island cities to Boston’s Logan Airport, connecting tourists to locations across the country and globe. This combination of travelers and residents adds a multitude of cars, trucks, and SUV’s to the road, which increases the risk of crashes, including car accidents due to the fault of a drunk driver. David Tapalian is a Warwick drunk driving accident lawyer ready to assist those suffering from injuries due to a drunk driving accident.

When a Drunk Driver is Responsible for Your Injuries

At Tapalian Law, we understand it can be a terrifying experience getting hurt in a serious car crash, especially being hit by a drunk driver. According to road traffic statistics, in 2014 there were three fatal accidents involving drunken persons in Warwick. You shouldn’t have to suffer due to the actions of another and an experienced Warwick drunk driving accident attorney will help you get the compensation you are entitled to and help you regain what you have lost due to the fault of an impaired driver. With your attorney’s help, you can bring a negligence claim against the person at fault for the accident. As drivers, we are all responsible for driving with a “duty of care”. This means you have a responsibility, or duty, to follow Rhode Island traffic laws and not to cause harm to others. If this “duty of care” is breached by operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content over 0.08%, one is considered in violation of the law and may be arrested for drunk driving. With the help of a drunk driving lawyer, you can establish negligence on the part of the impaired driver proving that their negligence was the cause of the crash and therefore the cause of the personal injuries you incurred. Once fault is established, your attorney will seek compensation for your accident related injuries, including medical and hospital bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, reduced earning capacity, future medical needs or surgeries, and other damages you may have incurred.
