Newport Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Drinking and driving is a serious offense because it is so dangerous to other, innocent drivers on the road. Drunk driving is a selfish act that affects not only the people who are hurt because of it, but their families and friends, as well. Dealing with the aftermath of a serious drunk driving accident can be mentally and physically tiring, as well as financially disastrous. Medical bills are high, and time taken off work to heal from an injury leads to even more economic problems. The last thing you need while trying to recover from a drunk driving accident is to worry about money–something that insurance companies don’t always help you with when they should. Fortunately, the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini are prepared to take on your case, helping to make a difficult time in your life easier. Call us today at (401) 751-8855 to learn more.
Why You Need an Attorney
To make sure that you get the compensation you’re looking for when you file a drunk driving personal injury claim, it’s important to hire an attorney who is well-versed in representing people with drunk driving cases. Attempting to represent yourself in a lawsuit is generally not advised because of how complicated legal matters can be. Even if a case seems fairly black-and-white at first, there are almost always nuances that are best handled by someone who knows what they’re doing in a court of law. An attorney qualified to take your case will have had experiences with similar cases before, meaning they can handle details such as keeping track of dates and deadlines, meeting with other lawyers, dealing with insurance agents, and organizing evidence. Your attorney will also help craft and present the argument for your claim. Especially when you’re trying to recover from an injury, or even if you are helping someone else recover, you are unlikely to have the required time, energy, and knowledge to follow through with a lawsuit without hiring any legal help. At the same time, it’s also important not to give up entirely on winning compensation for your injuries and damages. Hiring an attorney doesn’t have to break the bank–if it did, there would be no point in filing a claim in the first place. Helpful, qualified, and reasonable attorneys do exist, and can be absolutely monumental in turning your life around after an accident.

If you believe you have a claim to compensation for your injuries, contact us today on our website or by calling (401) 751-8855.
Cases We Handle
Our firm handles all sorts of cases that involve drunk or impaired drivers. These include cases in which a client has been injured by a drunk driver, cases in which a client has been injured by a driver under the influence of drugs, or wrongful death claims in which the loved one of a client was killed in either of these types of accidents. Because of Rhode Island’s fault-based system, which determines who pays for what in an accident, the person who is responsible for causing the accident is the one who is supposed to pay for damages. This is usually handled by their insurance company, which generally only pays up to their policy limit. Because of this, people who were hurt by negligent drivers often have leftover bills with which they aren’t getting any assistance. We don’t believe this is fair, so we help people get out of this situation every day. It’s not right that the victim of an accident–an accident that injured them–should be left to deal with their newfound financial instability all by themselves. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident because of a drunk or impaired driver, get in contact with us today.
