The risks of internal bleeding

Internal bleeding is an often-serious injury that may result from a car accident after a body part hits or is hit with a blunt or penetrable object.

Defenses to driver liability after a Rhode Island car crash

After a car accident, it may be logical to assume that one driver was at fault for the crash. However, there are some cases where more than one driver might have contributed to the accident.

At one time or another, nearly every Rhode Island driver has suddenly realized that he or she needs to make a turn.

No charges expected in bicycle vs. car crash in Rhode Island

Not every accident in Rhode Island that involves serious injuries or death leads to criminal charges.

Often, the strict burden of proof required for criminal cases cannot be met based on the facts surrounding a car crash.
