The Warwick motorcycle accident lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates settled a case on behalf of a Warwick man for $300,000 from Geico Insurance Company. The motorcyclist was traveling along a rural road, when another driver turned in front of his motorcycle, causing him to strike the side of the vehicle and sustain several broken bones, which required surgery to repair. The person at fault was underinsured, but the man was able to collect from his underinsurance policy on his motorcycle with Geico.
He contacted Attorney Laura Cameron at the Law Offices of d’Oliveira & Associates. Attorney Cameron was able to get the man the full policy limit of $300,000 in underinsurance benefits from Geico, to compensate him for his injuries. Attorney Cameron said, “I would have liked to get this man more money, but there was limited coverage. It was fortunate that he at least had $300,000 in underinsurance coverage, as often people like to save money and carry a lot less.”
Attorney d’Oliveira stated that “Attorney Cameron has gotten most of the largest settlements in our firm for motorcyclists over the years and I am amazed at how quickly she is able to get them. Motorcyclists should always carry as much underinsurance coverage as they can, as in Rhode Island, many drivers only carry the minimum coverage of $25,000 and typically motorcyclists can have more severe injuries than passengers in a car.”
It is all too common that drivers on the road are underinsured, or have no insurance at all. When one of these drivers causes an accident, they may have caused more damage than can be covered by the policy limits from their insurance coverage. If you are injured in a car accident by an underinsured motorist, you may still be able to receive full compensation for your injuries by contacting a personal injury lawyer and filing an underinsured motorist claim with your insurance company.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident and the at-fault party does not have enough coverage, it is imperative that you contact a Warwick motorcycle accident lawyer immediately, like our client did in this case. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve.
