Hurricane Earl and Storm Related Accidents

Another hurricane is upon us and as a lifelong Rhode Islander, I like you, am skeptical that this storm will amount to much, and here’s to hoping that it doesn’t. That said, it is going to be a very difficult weekend for driving and rain is expected to reach several inches in some parts of the state. Please be careful when driving and only drive if absolutely necessary.

If you are in an accident related to the storm, be sure to contact our office right away. Weather and storm related auto accidents have several unique problems that require investigation to determine who is at fault for the car accident and who is responsible for paying. During storms: cars can become disabled in the middle of roads, cars hydroplane and drift on the water, and most of all, visibility is extremely poor. These factors lead to a heavy increase in the frequency of auto accidents.

While Earl is not a name that often strikes fear, we must prepare for the worst. Be safe everyone!
