Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, of d’Oliveira & Associates’ Pawtucket office, recently obtained a $100,000 settlement from Selective Insurance and Progressive Insurance Co. Her client was a passenger in the car when it was hit by another driver while making a turn. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The car accident gave him a concussion as well as serious injuries to the whole left side of his body. He contacted the Pawtucket car injury lawyers for help.
Attorney Gouveia had this to say: “this case involved two separate at-fault parties, who were each blaming each other for the accident. Since it was clear we had to come together with both insurance companies in order to effectively advocate for the client, we proposed going to mediation. This process was a great way for the insurance adjusters to hear our position and effectively evaluate their exposure and risks. With the assistance of the mediator, we were able to convince them to compensate my client fully for his injuries, including payment for his medical bills and compensation for taking retirement early.”
Head or brain injuries, such as concussions, are very common in car accident cases and they can be highly disruptive to everyday life. Severe headaches, blurred vision, confusion, and disorientation are all common side effects of a concussion. You can help prevent concussions from car accidents by always buckling your seat belt, and sitting properly in your car’s seats. The symptoms of a brain injury are not always immediately present, so it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible to ensure that your injuries are treated properly.
