Attorney Cara L. Gallucci, of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently obtained a $135,000 settlement from Nationwide Insurance Company for a woman who was injured in a car accident. The woman was exiting from a store to the parking lot when she was struck in the crosswalk by a driver and knocked to the ground. As a result, she sustained a fracture to her lower back and pain to her hips and ankle, that required extensive medical treatment. She contacted the Woonsocket, RI car accident lawyers for help. Attorney Gallucci was able to obtain an out-of-court settlement for the client from Nationwide, the liability insurer.
Attorney Gallucci said, “This client was a delight to work with and we are very happy that our office was able to obtain this settlement for her. She was out of work for an extensive period and her injuries and losses adversely affected her daily activities. Hopefully this settlement has helped to restore some normalcy for her.”
