New Bedford man with cast on broken leg

Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently obtained a $100,000 settlement from Liberty Mutual and Arbella Insurance Companies. Her client was a passenger in a vehicle when it was hit by another driver. The man sustained a broken leg and needed surgery followed by physical therapy. He contacted the New Bedford, MA car accident lawyers for help.

We were able to get a settlement from the other driver’s insurance. We were also able to get a settlement from the underinsured policy held by a family member. After those settlement offers, we were able to reduce their medical bills. This allowed us to maximize the settlement to the client.“

Fractures or broken bones are common injuries in automobile accidents. The effects of this type of injury may be devastating and often result in pain and suffering, lost wages and high medical bills. Difficult insurance companies and a complex system add to the frustration of being fully compensated for the injury. This is where an experienced Massachusetts car accident lawyer can help.
