Cara Gallucci, the managing attorney at the Woonsocket office of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently got a young RI woman $200,000 after the car she was riding in was rear ended by a tractor trailer. She suffered severe dental injuries, requiring surgery. She contacted the car accident lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates for advice on how to deal with her claim.
Attorney Gallucci said “this young lady suffered very serious injuries to her mouth from this accident. She had excellent care from her doctors and surgeons that treated her. She has had an excellent result following the dental surgeries and is now pain free. I am very happy to have been able to help this young woman through her difficult ordeal and feel we got her an excellent settlement.”
The Department of Transportation estimates that over 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Tractor trailer owners have to comply with specific regulations regarding safety, vehicle maintenance, lower BAC levels for drivers, and other restrictions. Failure to adhere to these regulations could result in serious accidents with devastating consequences. A trucking company that has not followed regulations should be held liable for their negligence if an accident occurs.
If you have been injured in a trucking accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering, among other losses. Trucking companies have insurance to cover these injuries, and the experienced car accident lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates know how to get good settlements for their clients.
