Car Accident Lawyer in rhode island

Rhode Island and Massachusetts Car accident lawyers

            The lawyers at Barsom Law Group are experienced at handling automobile and other motor vehicle accidents claims in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.  Determining who is at fault in an auto accident means figuring out who was negligence and thus responsible for causing the accident.  Failure to use reasonable care while operating a motor vehicle constitutes negligence.  Negligence determination is often based on:

  • Careless and/or Reckless Driving

  • Failure to obey traffic sings or signals

  • Failure to follow the speed limit

  • Failure to signal when turning

  • Driving a car under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol

  • Talking on a cell phone while driving

  • Texting and driving

  • Distracted driving

  • Car accidents caused by defective or recalled vehicles

  • Car accidents at dangerous intersections

  • School bus accidents

  • SUV rollovers

  • Violation of some other law

  • T-Bone accidents

  • Hit and Run Accidents

  • Rear-End Collisions

  • Head-On collisions

Auto accidents caused by drunk drives could also lead to claims against bars for dram shop violations.  Collisions caused by hit and run drivers can still lead to claims, even if the driver of the car who caused the crash is not identified. 

Automobile accidents comprise a significant portion of personal injury and wrongful death claims, it would be a mistake to think that they are always simple to resolve.  They often involve complex issues of evidence and insurance law, which is what the lawyers at Barsom Law Group handle.

  • Pain and suffering,

  • Medical expenses

  • Lost wages

  • Loss of Earning Potential

  • Property Damage

  • Mental anguish/Emotional Suffering

In each case, we carefully consider all the facts to identify every possible defendant and the full extent of damage.  This allows us to pursue claims in a manner that maximizes recovery.
