Attorney Cara Gallucci, a motorcycle accident lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates, recently got a Scituate, Rhode Island man a $100,000 settlement from the Amica Insurance Company. The man was on his motorcycle when a car turned into his lane unexpectedly and he was unable to avoid a collision. In addition to severe road rash, he sustained a lacerated spleen and serious hand injuries, which required surgery. Unable to work, he called the Woonsocket car accident lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates for help.
Attorney Gallucci stated “this gentleman had some serious injuries as a result of the other driver’s inattention and negligence. I am very happy that he healed well and had such a good result from his surgery. We were able to obtain a fair settlement for this man, which represented his physical injuries, medical bills and lost wages. He was very happy with the outcome of the case and was appreciative of the help our office provided to him.”
With the weather changing from winter to spring, more and more motorcycles will be on the road. Motorcycle accidents can be much more dangerous than car accidents because there is less protection offered by a motorcycle than a car. Additionally, riders in Rhode Island are not required to wear helmets if they are over 21 and have been riding for at least a year. If you have been injured in an accident, through the fault of another, you should consider hiring a Rhode Island motorcycle accident lawyer, who can help get you the compensation you deserve.
