Motorcycle Accident Attorney, Lawyer – Carl P. DeLuca
Carl P. DeLuca, Rhode Island Motorcycle Accident Attorney
At Carl P. DeLuca, Attorney at Law, we’re passionate about protecting motorcyclists. For over 30 years, we’ve worked with clients injured in motorcycle accidents. In 2018, we launched the “New England Motorcycle Enthusiasts” Facebook page and the “New England Motorcycle Safety and Advocacy Group” to connect riders in Rhode Island and all over New England and to inform and educate the biker community about safety and litigation issues particular to bike crashes.
Carl P. DeLuca, Esq., is an attorney with over 30 years experience practicing law. He graduated from Moses Brown School, in Providence, Rhode Island in 1978. He received his Law Degree from Hofstra University in 1985.
Motorcycle accidents can result in injuries ranging from minor bumps and bruises to severe spinal cord injuries and even death. According to the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, motorcycle riders are 28 times more likely to die in a crash versus those involved in a motor vehicle accident. If you or a loved one were injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation. We’re committed to helping bikers get fairly compensated for their injuries.
There are some issues that come up more often with motorcycle accidents than car accidents and some things that are completely unique to motorcycle accidents. That’s where experience handling motorcycle accidents, particularly motorcycle fatalities, becomes critical. I handled my first motorcycle accident in 1989 and as a result of that case and subsequent cases I learned the things that a motorcycle accident lawyer needs to know to properly represent a motorcyclist.
Motorcycle accidents can be life changing events for the motorcyclists and their families. A successful lawsuit won’t fix every injury or bring back the loved ones we’ve lost, but it can ensure that proper care is given to the injured and support is provided for the loved ones left behind. Please contact us if you or a loved one were injured in a motorcycle accident. If your accident occurred in a state other than Rhode Island we will not be able to represent you. However, we would be happy to find a good lawyer for you in your own jurisdiction. Call us. We’ll help.
The greatest emerging threat to motorcyclists is the new breed of distracted driver. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to distracted drivers because of their limited visibility. It’s sometimes difficult enough for motorists to see a motorcycle without the added distraction of a cell phone. With the increased use of cell phones over the past decade, distracted drivers are becoming more common and are distracted for longer periods of time than ever before.
This new distraction is increasing the amount of motorcycle accidents and fatalities throughout the country. However, a study that was recently published in Social Science & Medicine discovered that states who implement strict law bans on cell phone usage reduce motorcycle fatality rates by as much as 11%. So, there's hope for improvement, but the danger to bikers is significant.
