There Is No Excuse for Texting While Driving in Rhode Island

Contact Our Auto Accident Lawyers in Providence & Middletown Today

Mountains of evidence support the fact that distracted driving is becoming an increasingly prevalent cause of auto accidents in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Despite bans on texting while driving in both states, every day there are drivers who send and read text messages and emails, placing themselves and everyone else on the road with them at risk.

When this type of negligent behavior leads to accidents that result in serious injuries, victims have the right to seek compensation for any losses they suffer as a result. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident involving a driver who was distracted by any kind of cellphone use, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified personal injury lawyer.

Aggressive Representation for Distracted Driving Injury Victims

From our offices in Providence and Middletown, the attorneys at Karns & Kerrison represent people who are suffering because of another party's negligence. We have a great deal of experience with distracted driving and texting while driving cases, and you can rely on us to provide the skillful representation necessary to secure a favorable outcome.

Texting while driving accidents can involve high-speed rear-end and head-on collisions, as well as T-bones when the distracted driver fails to stop or yield the right of way at an intersection. We understand the types of injuries victims can suffer in these accidents and we work tirelessly to see that you receive full and fair compensation for your medical care, loss of income, property damage, and other considerations pertinent to your cases.
