Warwick Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident, the person who chose to disobey the laws and operate a vehicle while intoxicated clearly violated a fundamental duty of care and responsibility. As a result, you should not have to shoulder the burden of their reckless actions, nor should you struggle financially because of their poor decisions.

Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a serious offense, and if you’ve been made the victim of a drunk driver’s negligence, you have the right to receive financial compensation for your injuries and expenses. The results of driving while intoxicated can be devastating, leaving families in debt and in pain. Medical expenses after an accident with a drunk driver can be extremely high, and insurance companies can’t always be relied upon to cover all of those expenses.

At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we believe that you deserve fair compensation when you’ve been hit and injured by an irresponsible, negligent driver. For more information and to talk to a personal injury lawyer about your case, call us at (401) 751-8855 today.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Hiring a lawyer to help you win your case is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that you win back the money you need and deserve to cover all the expenses caused by your accident. A lawyer is immensely helpful when it comes to keeping track of the details of a case and presenting evidence to a court. You should always talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer after being hit by a drunk driver, seeing as you likely have a very strong case for filing a personal injury lawsuit against them.

Once you’ve decided to file a case, it’s important to find a lawyer who is experienced at handling drunk driving cases so that you can be sure you’re getting the best representation. Your lawyer will be an invaluable resource to you as they gather relevant evidence, present your case to judges, and even help with more mundane tasks, such as talking to insurance companies and keeping track of important deadlines and dates pertaining to the case.

If you or a loved one has just been through an accident involving a drunk driver, you have a lot to deal with already. Attempting to take on the brunt of the work of your personal injury case will only negatively affect your recovery and cause unnecessary stress. You deserve to receive fair compensation without going through yet another traumatic experience.

Cases We Handle

At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we handle many kinds of cases involving impaired drivers. The cases we take include:

  • Cases in which you’ve been injured by a drunk driver
  • Cases in which you’ve been injured by a driver under the influence of drugs
  • And cases in which a loved one has been killed due to the negligence of an impaired driver.

In the state of Rhode Island, the law follows a “fault”-based system of determining financial responsibility for an accident. This means that whoever is found to be the negligent driver or the one “at-fault,” is responsible for paying damages. This usually means that it is handled by the negligent driver’s insurance coverage. However, insurance will only pay amounts up to the policy limit, which often leaves damages unaccounted for, not to mention emotional trauma, time off work, and possible travel expenses.

No matter what specifically caused the accident—whether it be drugs, alcohol, or a combination of both—you shouldn’t have to pay out of your own pocket for the irresponsible and reckless behavior of another driver.

Although it may seem like a case involving drugs and/or alcohol should be a clear sign of negligence, be sure to hire an experienced attorney to help ensure that your case is handled correctly.

Because DWI is a crime, the guilty party may end up being charged with both a criminal offense, which will be entirely separate from your personal injury civil lawsuit.
