Recently, our attorney D. Robin Gouveia, obtained a $100,000 settlement from Commerce Insurance for a New Bedford, MA man, who was severely injured in a pedestrian accident. Our client was walking across the street at night, when a vehicle struck him. He suffered from intense injuries to his back and shoulders which took a lot of time and medical procedures to heal.
Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, said that, “We submitted a demand for the bodily injury policy limits because it was clear the case was worth these limits. The insurer initially tried to argue comparative negligence but we stood firm and advocated for the full policy limits. After several rounds of discussions, they finally agreed and offered what we were demanding. There was no other insurance available to compensate the client so we put the settlement package together for the client to maximize the net recovery to him.”
