Massachusetts Crash Injuries and Rhode Island Road Fatalities Need a Reliable Accident Attorney
Traffic in the Providence and Fall River region gets worse every year, from rush-hour fender benders to devastating, if not fatal, truck accidents. With busy highways such as Interstate-95, I-295 and I-95 connecting our major cities, accidents can cause everything from whiplash and a few broken bones to traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. The causes of accidents in our area include texting behind the wheel, making cell phone calls while driving, and drivers distracted with GPS units and MP3 players. However, the greatest cause of accidents in this region is drinking and driving and, as MA/RI personal injury attorneys, we have seen the destruction southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island drunk drivers cause, all too many times.
Hard-Working MA/RI Personal Injury Lawyers Known For Integrity and For Winning Cases
In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's most recent study of Rhode Island motor vehicle fatalities, over 38% of road deaths involved a driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. Massachusetts DWI injury and death rates are similarly distressing. Reckless DWI drivers cause countless injuries to MA and RI residents on every road in the area, from I-95, I-195, I-295 and I-495 to Route 44, Highway 79 and 24, the Boston-Fall River Expressway. When you add high tech driver distractions such as in-dashboard connectivity systems, it is no wonder we handle so many distracted driver auto accidents as well. Bad weather can also cause problems, such as poor visibility due to fog, coastal storms and bad road conditions during icy winters. Drivers often run stop-signs and red lights, ending up causing passenger car rear-enders, SUV roll-overs, motorcycle accidents and trucker head-ons. With Mt. Hope Bay, Newport Harbor and all the communities surrounding Narragansett Bay, water can be an added danger, as drunk or distracted drivers have driven their car into the harbor, with DWI drowning deaths as a result.
