Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently obtained a $100,000 settlement from AIG Insurance for a man who was injured in a car accident. Our client was rear ended when a car behind him failed to slow down with traffic. As a result of this accident, our client suffered multiple back injuries. He contacted the New Bedford, MA car accident lawyers for help. Attorney Gouveia was able to obtain a favorable out-of-court settlement for the client.
Attorney Gouveia said “it is not uncommon for insurance companies to negotiate value using the property damage amounts; stating little property damage means little value. Often this is not an accurate comparison. In this case, we used the medical evidence and the client’s credibility to prove this and convinced the adjuster that the injury, despite the monetary value of the property damage was significant. We argued the mechanism of the injury, how the client was sitting and positioned in the vehicle at impact, to make this point. In doing this, we were able to obtain a fair compensation to the client for his injuries.”
