Auto Accidents

Rhode Island Car Accident Injury Lawyer

The impact a car accident injury can have on someone can be tremendous and costly. Car accident injuries occur on a large scale every day. A Rhode Island Car Accident Injury Lawyer understands the complexities that auto accidents entail, including both legal and insurance matters. Determining who is at fault for a car accident can be difficult do to the many factors an auto accident can involve.

Many causes of car accident collisions are due to:

  • Drunk Driving
  • Drowsiness
  • Negligence
  • Distractions
  • Cell Phone Misuse
  • Aggressive Driving
  • Poor Road Conditions
  • Mechanical Failure
  • Speeding

One major factor in car accident injury is misuse of cell phones. Research studies show that the number of cell phone subscribers has grown from 94 million in the year 2000 to about 130 million today. It is therefore not hard to imagine how many of them use their cell phone while driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 85 percent of these cell phone subscribers talk on the phone while they are operating a car. It has also been estimated that 6 percent of automobile accidents per year are caused by drivers talking on their cell phone. This means that a total of 2,600 people will die in cell-phone related car accidents this year.

Around 98 percent of reported car accident injuries involve a single distracted driver concentrating not on the road, but rather on one of the following:

  • Rubbernecking (16%)
  • Driver Fatigue (12%)
  • Surroundings (10%)
  • Child/Passenger Distraction (9%)
  • Adjusting Radio/CD (7%)
  • Cell Phone (6%)

If you have been involved in a car accident that was, in your opinion, caused by an inattentive driver using a cell phone, you need the experience and knowledge Rhode Island Accident lawyer Joshua Macktaz to investigate your case to the fullest.

I highly recommend the services of Josh Macktaz. He was responsive, efficient and very realistic about my case and the associated penalties. My legal costs were exactly as he suggested on our first call (which were fair). He is very knowledgeable of the Rhode Island law and has very strong contacts at the traffic tribunal. Related, he handled minor hearings without me which saved me money and travel time. He did the best possible job for a guy in my situation. Anyone that has a drunk driving charge in RI that does not consider Josh Macktaz is risking their future and wasting their dollars.

My experience with Josh was beyond positive. If I could rate higher than five stars I would. Through out my entire process he was professional, straightforward, knowledgeable and understanding. It did not take long after meeting him I knew I needed him to represent me. Although my road was long Josh stuck with me every step of the way. There is no doubt in my mind without him I would not have been able to get the best possible outcome in my case. For that my family and I are forever grateful to him. He truly is a master of his craft and a fighter through and through. If you need representation look no further " This is the Man you want In your corner."
