A Cranston motorcycle accident lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates settled a case on behalf of a client for $277,000 from the Travelers Insurance Company. The client was riding his motorcycle in Rhode Island, when he was struck by another vehicle that turned into his lane. The injured motorcyclist broke his arm and pelvis and sustained other less serious injuries.
Attorney Laura Cameron, an experienced personal injury lawyer with the firm, was able to negotiate a $277,000 settlement with Travelers Insurance Company to compensate the client for his injuries.
Attorney Cameron said, “My client sustained serious injuries and I am very pleased that we were able to obtain an excellent settlement for him within six months of his accident.”
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira, the President of d’Oliveira & Associates, stated “Attorney Laura Cameron has been getting six figure settlements for injured victims of motorcycle and auto accidents here for the past 17 years. She has gotten more big settements for this firm than any other lawyer here and it is amazing to see. How she got that much money in such a short time for this man is truly incredible. Usually a case like this can take a lot longer to settle. She really did her job well on this case.“
It’s no secret that motorcycles can potentially be quite hazardous for the operator’s health. A March 2015 study showed that motorcyclists were 5 times more likely to be injured in an accident than a passenger car occupant, and 26 times more likely to die in an accident than a passenger car occupant. A surprising statistic however is the age of the majority of people who have been killed in motorcycle accidents. That study found that 56% of motorcyclists killed in accidents were above the age of 40 (i). No one is invincible, it is important to take every step possible to keep yourself safe while operating your motorcycle.
