A driver of a vehicle must use “reasonable care under thecircumstances.” If you are the victim of a pedestrian injury due to a motorvehicle accident, you may be able to recover losses associated with theaccident by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent you.

Proving negligence involves showing that the person whocaused the pedestrian injury owed a duty to the pedestrian, that the person orentity failed to uphold that duty, that the failure to uphold the duty causedan accident, and that the accident caused a pedestrian injury.

For instance, in the case of a commercial property owner whofailed to clean their sidewalk of ice or debris causing a pedestrian injury, ora driver failing to stop at a stop sign thereby causing a pedestrian injury,both are situations where proving negligence is necessary.

Additional Accident Information

Major Rhode Island Roadways:

Interstate 95:I-95: I-95 is the main north-south Interstate Highway on America’s east coast. In Rhode Island, I-95 travels from the Connecticut border near Westerly through Warwick and Providence and then on to the Massachusetts border in Pawtucket. Routes I-195 and I-295 (discussed below) are spurs of I-95.

Interstate 195:I-195: Travelling a combined 40.1 miles in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, I-195 leaves its junction with I-95 in Providence then heads east to a junction with I-495 and Route 25 on Massachusetts’ Cape Cod. The section of I-195 in downtown Providence is being replaced. The new route will lie just south of the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier.

Interstate 295:I-295: At a length of just 26.58 miles in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, I-295 is short but vital. From its southern terminus in Warwick, it forms an essential western beltway around Providence before ending to the north in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Plans are underway to supplement I-295 with an eastern beltway around Providence.

Other roadways where accidents typically happen in Rhode Island: Route 44, Route 6, Route 24, Route 1, Route 138, and Route 4
