Drivers exchanging insurance information after a rear end car accident

Recently d’Oliveira & Associates attorney, D. Robin Gouveia, obtained a $125,000 settlement from Plymouth Rock Insurance for a Dartmouth woman, who was injured in a car accident. Our client was attempting to make a left turn when a distracted driver collided with the rear of her vehicle. This accident left our client in tremendous pain and required invasive surgery for her injuries. 

Attorney D. Robin Gouveia said, “Liability in this crash was immediately determined to rest on the other party.  We provided assistance to our client to help navigate this stressful and traumatic time.  We handled all the paperwork from the insurance company and from the medical providers to ensure she was allowed to focus on her treatment and recovery.  We used medical evidence and impact statements to support her claim and negotiate a well-deserved settlement.”

Distracted driving accounts for hundreds of thousands of car accident injuries each year. Additionally, about 3,000 people die in car accidents involving a distracted driver each year. According to the CDC, if a driver is driving at 55 mph and is sending or reading a text, it is the same as driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed. These startling numbers make it even more important to contact a car accident lawyer if you are injured from this unfortunate situation.
