When you stop at the scene of the automobile crash, your first concern should be for the safety of yourself, your family and others involved in the motor vehicle wreck. If it is safe to do so, leave your vehicle at the spot of the collision so the police can adequately reconstruct the RI car accident. In many situations it will be necessary to pull over to the side of the road or highway to protect your safety and the safety of others. Use common sense.2. If staying in your automobile will imperil your safety in any way, then immediately get out of the automobile and move to a safe location. Many serious injuries and deaths in Rhode Island are caused by the second collision after the initial mishap. If you are still in an unsafe location, you could be injured by someone rear ending your motor vehicle.important keywords: RI Slip and Fall accident, RI personal injury lawyer, Car Accidents Lawyer

Coroner: Allentown man dies after slipping on ice outside home

Coroner: Allentown man dies after slipping on ice outside home | Snyder & Wiles, PC, Personal Injury | Scoop.it
Gladys Wiles's insight:

Allentown man pronounced dead one hour after slipping and falling on ice in front of his own home. Slip and falls seem harmless, but may prove to be deadly. Often a slip and fall can result in significant head trauma that results in death. In this case, the coroner determined that the death was caused from injuries sustained in the fall. I'm sure this poor soul didn't think he would die when he steped out of his house. Snow melting and rain causes wet surfaces. Ice forms on sidewalks as temperatures drop. Be sure to treat your sidewalks and driveways with salt or other ice melting substances, you maybe saving the life of your neighbor and even your own.

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


A hospital needs to provide several services for expecting families. In particular, healthcare workers need to keep the maternity ward properly sterilized and maintain a higher quality of care while around newborns. Although, obviously, a mistake involving an adult patient can have grave consequences, a simple mistake such as carrying in the flu after touching an infected patient can be life-threatening for an infant. Post-natal infections, possibly linked to the healthcare standards of the hospital, can prove extremely serious.


Keeping a hospital relatively sterile is a major problem with today’s healthcare facilities. With fewer staff members and more patients, many facilities may rush through the cleaning of instruments and linens. Exposure to infection can then come from these materials entering into the maternity ward and being used around a newborn child.

44 injured today on I-78, including 2 with life-threatening injuries. I-78 was shut down most of the day due to this pile-up. It appeared that the collisions occured rounding a bend. Roads were likily slick, and rounding that bend with any speed would cause a vehicle to spin out under those conditions. Additionally, it's important to keep a very safe distance with vehicles ahead, so as to provide the utmost amount of braking space should such a event occur.

excerpt:


Are the caps in Liability applicable in the event that a government worker accidentally kills a civilian in accident in Mass.?

Continued from Part 1 of 3


The Liability caps do not apply in wrongful death lawsuits and fatal car accidents in Massachusetts. Conners v. Northeast Hospital Corp. 439 Mass. at 470 (2003).

Thankfully, the MA Supreme Judicial Court refused to allow governmental immunity for fatal crashes and accidents. Therefore, if a government employee is involved in a fatal motorcycle, Semi Truck bicycle, car accident, pedestrian or premises liability accident the government cannot run from liability.


In Kromhout v Commonwealth the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court resolved the following issue: “This case presents an issue, specifically reserved in Patrazza v. Commonwealth, ante 464, 466 & n. 1 (1986), involving the Commonwealth’s liability in a wrongful death action arising from a defect in a State highway.”

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


The most common types of automobile accidents that occur on the roads, streets and highways of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations are known as a “rear-enders”.


Nationally, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, “approximately 29.7% of all crashes in the year 2000 were rear-end crashes. These crashes were responsible for 30% of all injuries and 29.7% of the property damage.” http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/809-540.PDF


A large majority of auto wrecks in the Ocean State constitute what is commonly known as “rear enders”. Rear- end accidents in Rhode Island are easier to settle with Insurance Liability Adjusters than other types of vehicular collisions.


Pursuant to RI Injury law, the liability of the motorist who caused the rear end car crash is assumed. In other words, the motorist who strikes another vehicle is usually negligent and at fault for the wreck.

an article by RI premises liability 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.

Rhode Island Negligence and Personal Injury cases are almost never filed in Rhode Island District Court. RI District Court has exclusive Jurisdiction when the amount in controversy is $5000 or less.


Post by Rhode island Car Crash lawyer, David Slepkow 401-437-1100

The RI District Court has concurrent Jurisdiction with Superior Court for matters between $5,000 and $10,000. There are several important reasons why Rhode Island Car Accident Lawyers rarely file accident cases in district Court:


1) A Rhode Island District Court case can be appealed De Novo to the Rhode Island Superior Court. This means that if a timely appeal is filed in District Court the case will start all over again in Rhode Island Superior Court. “De Novo” means “of new”. Therefore, whatever happened in District Court will have no prejudicial effect on the Rhode Island Superior Court case. Many Rhode Island Lawyers believe it is a waste of time and resources to litigate a case that can be so easily appealed.

There were several incidents which occurred in the early morning which prompted the Providence Journal to state “Mayhem at 3 a.m.” These incidents involved drunk driving, stabbings, automobile accidents, assaults and other incidents.


Incident #1: reckless and drunk driving resulting in Auto Accidents

The Providence Journal reported that “Providence police say a young man was 2 1/2 times the legal limit for alcohol when he hit a parked car, nearly crashed into a police cruiser, and sped through the city streets with a street sign lodged in his truck’s undercarriage.”http://www.providencejournal.com/breaking-news/content/20140302-mayhem-at-3-a.m.-providence-charges-man-with-dui-after-crashes-reckless-driving.ece


Here is the applicable statute for reckless driving criminal offenses in Rhode Island:


“§ 31-27-4 Reckless driving and other offenses against public safety. – Any person who operates a motor vehicle recklessly so that the lives or safety of the public might be endangered, or operates a vehicle in an attempt to elude or flee from a traffic officer or police vehicle, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor for the first conviction and a felony for the second and each subsequent conviction.”

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, December 10, 2013 12:24 PM

Not surprsing to me as an attorney that represents victims of traumatic brain injury in California that falls would be the number one cause of TBI followed by auto accidents.  Slip and fall incidents where someone strikes their head are frequently caused by slippery and dangerous conditions on commercial and residential property.  When it can be shown that the condition existed for some period of time or that the property owner knew or should have known about its existence in time to make it safe, there may be a negligence action against the person who owns, leases or controls the property.  Consulation with an experienced personal injury attorney in these instances can be the difference between having to bear the burden of medical expenses and disruption to one's lifestyle or being able to force the property owner to pay for hospital and doctor care and to compensate the victim for pain, suffering and emotional trauma caused by the incident. Head injuries can be life altering events and a quality accident lawyer can assist with making a bad situation much more manageable through obtaining recovery.

excerpt:


If your loved one is the victim of a brain injury because of someone else’s fault, it is important to hire a top Brain Injury Attorney or lawyer.  A  Traumatic Brain injury  (TBI) could be caused by hundreds of different types of accidents including auto / motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall, pedestrian accidents and premises liability mishaps.

If this is the first time you are hiring a lawyer, you may not even know where to start. The process can be done in three steps:


  1. Ask friends or relatives for any recommendations and get names of brain injury lawyers from trusted resources.
  2. Meet each lawyer to learn and know more about lawyer’s skills and experience
  3. Hire the best lawyer, who has the best skills and experience.

Initial consultation: Before deciding to hire a head/ brain injury car accident attorney, you need to schedule a meeting. This meeting will provide you an opportunity to learn about lawyer’s background and experience with brain injury victims.

Gladys Wiles's insight:

This afternoon the Pennsylvania Turnpike saw its share of car accidents. One accident alone involved 56 cars. One person was killed.  There is currently a weather advisory, and the roads are very slick. Give yourself plenty of breaking room as you drive behind another car. #LehighValleyInjuryAttorney
