D. Robin Gouveia, a lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates, successfully obtained a $100,000 out of court settlement from Arbella Mutual Insurance Company for a child that was injured after a motor vehicle accident. The vehicle was stopped at a red light when it was rear ended by a driver. The child sustained a severe head injury and required extensive medical treatment. The parents contacted an experienced New Bedford, MA car accident lawyer.
Attorney D. Robin Gouveia said, “My client had a significant pre-existing condition; however, since it was clearly made worse in the accident, we discussed the aggravation with the doctor. When he agreed the condition was aggravated, we requested and obtained a written opinion from the doctor and used it to maximize the settlement.”
Children are injured in motor vehicles when they are struck by other vehicles or not properly secured in the vehicle. Injuries occur not only in vehicle collisions, but also when the vehicle suddenly stops or goes over large bumps.
