Drunk Driving Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyer Advice

Did you know that this is one of the most tragic time of year for drunk driving personal injuries? If you or a loved one are victims of a drunk driver, whether by car or boat, our experienced team can help win your case.
Rhode Island Drunk Driving Laws And Personal Injury
We can pursue a civil personal injury case for you, even using criminal drunk driving laws to your advantage in a personal injury case.
For example, in Rhode Island, under the Implied Consent laws, by operating a vehicle, you consent to a chemical blood alcohol content (BAC) test. And it is illegal to drive with a BAC of 0.08% or higher. If a driver refuses the BAC test, the Implied Consent laws set penalties such as license suspension for 6 months, ministry service, drunk driving or alcohol treatment programs, or fines.
In civil court, where we practice personal injury law, we can use these laws and the police investigation as evidence to help win your case!
RI Boating Accident Personal Injury With Drunk Driving
Similarly, if you are a victim of a personal injury caused by a drunk driver behind the wheel of a boat, we can help you.
The Department of Homeland Security and the US Coast Guard report that among the top 10 causes of boating accidents in the US, 66% result in injuries and 12% result in fatalities. Most of these personal injuries are a result of alcohol use, and most deaths are the result of operator inattention.
Again, we can use the criminal laws and boating regulations to your advantage in civil court to win you money damages.
