Shatter the statistics - stay safe on skis

The first day of summer promises a full season ahead, and long days at the Rhode Island coast mean fun in the sun and on the water. Those who love getting out on boats, jet skis and other watercraft need to be especially careful this time of year when lakes and seaside resorts are more full than usual. Remember to prioritize safety at all times. 

Alcohol a common factor in boating accidents

Spending time out on the water is a way of life for many Rhode Island residents, and doing so can be a great way to kick back, relax and escape from your day-to-day responsibilities. A laid-back excursion with friends and family can quickly turn deadly, however, if others out on the waterways fail to behave responsibly. At Karns Law Group, we understand that alcohol is frequently a factor in today’s boating accidents, and we have helped many people who suffered injury on the water because of someone else’s actions pursue appropriate recourse.

New law aims at curtailing distracted driving

Rhode Island readers know distracted driving is a significant problem in the state and across the country. More drivers than ever before have smartphones, and many of them use their phones to text, call and use social media while driving. In order to curtail the problem of distracted driving, state lawmakers have passed a new measure to reduce distracted driving.

The invisible danger in marinas and around your boat

The weather is perfect for a weekend trip to the lake, and you and your family are anxious to load up the boat and head out to the cabin. At the Karns Law Group, we want our fellow Rhode Island residents to have a fun and safe summer, and we realize that water safety is a serious issue during the warmer months.
