Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, the managing lawyer at the Fall River office of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently got a $100,000 settlement from the Safety Insurance Company, after a Fall River man was injured while riding his motorcycle. The driver at fault failed to stop in time and rear ended the man, who was thrown from his motorcycle. He suffered painful lower back, neck, and hip injuries, a concussion, and substantial scrapes and bruises, which resulted in hefty medical bills. The man called the Fall River personal injury lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates to help him get compensation.
Attorney Gouveia stated that “at first glance of the medical records, it appeared this client had good results with the treatment he received, however the accident caused him significant injuries. Despite ongoing treatment, we demanded the full policy limits because the case was already worth it. We filed evidence showing his scarring and the insurance company gave us the $100,000 policy limits.“
The client in this case suffered from a concussion, which is also known as a traumatic brain injury. Concussion symptoms can be as mild as a headache with minor confusion, to as severe as loss of consciousness, trouble speaking, or seizures. Although wearing a motorcycle helmet will not be able to prevent all concussions, it could be the difference between life and death. If you have suffered an injury in a motorcycle accident, which was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering, among other losses.
