an article by RI Personal Injury lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Enjoying the open roads and city streets on a motorcycle in Rhode Island and Providence Plantations can be a dangerous experience. Even though there is a lower frequency of motorcycle accidents compared to other types of collisions involving just passenger vehicles or commercial trucks, typically the injuries to the rider are more severe.


Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Barrington, Bristol and Burrillville RI


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) individuals are 35 times more likely to die from a motorcycle accident, when compared to vehicle accidents (car accidents). Motorcyclists face special risks when traveling on highways, city streets and side roads in Providence, Central Falls, Charlestown and Coventry Rhode Island. The most common types of motorcycle accidents in Cranston, Cumberland and East Greenwich include:


Head-On Collision in Rhode Island


Nearly 56 percent of all accident deaths involving a motorcycle occur in a head-on collision with another vehicle or object. In many incidences, catastrophic accidents happen when a vehicle strikes a motorcyclist from the front. In fact, nearly 80 percent of collisions with vehicles hitting a motorcycle occur from the front, where only five percent of accidents are from the rear. In most incidences, head-on collisions involving a bike (chopper) and another vehicle result in the death of the motorcyclist.

an article by RI Medical Malpractice lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


If you or a loved one was injured as a result of a defective or unreasonably dangerous product, it is crucial that you immediately retain a Rhode Island Product Liability attorney. Most importantly, save the actual product in a safe place for testing and viewing.  It is critically important that you retain a very experienced liability attorney who has the resources to hold the corporation who manufactured the product accountable for their actions.


Every week, numerous people are injured by shoddily designed products. Tragically, some people are killed by defectively or poorly designed products. If your loved one died as a result of a defective drug, medical device or product then you should retain a product liability lawyer (a RI product Liability lawyer) with experience in RI wrongful death litigation.


As a consumer of product and medical devices in Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, you should have the expectation that you will be  utilizing safe products. Corporate America is legally obligated to manufacture and design consumer products in a safe and efficient manner. Some injuries are caused by improper warnings while others by improper design or a mistake in manufacturing.

excerpt:


Over the past several months, I have written several in depth articles concerning the various provisions of personal injury law in Rhode Island. As I penned these comprehensive posts regarding liability, negligence and accident laws in RI, I realized that Rhode Island appears to be a very favorable environment for Plaintiff’s and their RI Personal Injury Attorneys.

I never gave any thought as to how Rhode Island and Providence Plantations stacked up against other states across the United States until I started reviewing commentary from injury attorneys and car accident lawyers nationwide.

an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Reckless drivers are more than just a menace to other motorists operating their vehicles in a safe manner, because of the potential of causing accidents on the roadway. An irresponsible aggressive motorist driving recklessly can commit a moving traffic violation that substantially endangers people and property, which often leads to injuries, death and property damage.


Common types of reckless driving behaviors on the Rhode Island (RI) roadway include:


• Making an unsafe lane change
• Driving at excessive speed
• Dangerously weaving through traffic
• Tailgating (following too closely behind)
• Passing a legally stopped school bus
• Failing to yield to motorists with the right-of-way
• Failing to signaling when turning
• Talking or texting on a smart phone
• Racing and drag racing
• Failing to stay in a single lane
• Operating a vehicle with faulty brakes
• Performing illegal U-turns (180 degree turn)
• Cutting off other vehicles on the roadway
• Passing vehicles on the right
• Road rage driving
• Driving faster than the posted speed limit through school zones and construction zones
• Passing on the right shoulder or in a no passing lane
• Impaired driving such as driving drunk or when on drugs
• Disregard of traffic signals and signs

Negligent and Illegal driving in Rhode Island and Providence Plantations


Any manner of reckless driving is a negligent act and is often explicitly illegal.  The State of RI has various enacted laws imposing strict penalties for any motorist driving at reckless speeds, typically considered numerous miles more than the posted speed limit. In addition to being cited with a traffic violation, the reckless driver can be held civilly liable, requiring them to provide financial compensation to victims of the accident suffering injury, death and/or property damage.

http://www.ripersonalinjurylaw.com/defective-prescription-medication-product-liability-claims-rhode-island/


an article by RI Personal Injury Law lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Injuries from defective drugs in Rhode Island and Massachusetts (MA) are often due to the pharmaceutical industry rushing medications to market as a way to generate astronomical profits, without proper testing through extensive clinical trials. Product Liability is often the result of a consumer being injured by merchandise and goods that were defective, unreasonably dangerous and unsafe.

Defective Drug Problems in Rhode Island


Pharmaceutical companies are constantly bringing new medications to market in an effort to maintain their cut of the medical niche market. Drug companies can generate billions of dollars in profits every year. While some of their prescription medications save lives and cure medical conditions, many cause significant harm, adverse effects and even death to the patient.


While the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) maintains strict standards, guidelines and policies to ensure consumer safety, the process for approval is tedious and slow moving. Often times, pharmaceutical manufacturers will cut corners in an effort to rush a new product to market, placing patients in great danger of serious side effects. Even when adverse effects are known, it often takes years to remove the drug from the market.

excerpt:


(This is an excellent Personal Injury Law Article by  Jason Epstein. This Personal Injury article is approved by Rhode Island Personal Injury LawyerDavid Slepkow)


Due to the number of hazards present in construction sites, construction employees are more at risk for injury almost every other profession. Each year, hundreds of thousands of construction workers are injured in some way in the workplace.


Clearly, construction work is a dangerous job, but that does not mean that those who work in it should be withheld from protection if they are injured due to the negligence of their employer. L&I will be able to help in some regard for these injuries, but due to the complexity of construction liability, and the seriousness of most injuries, a personal injury lawyer is oftentimes necessary in fighting these claims.
