Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently obtained a $130,000 settlement from American Commerce Insurance for a woman who was injured in a car accident. Our client was in a vehicle that was rear ended by another driver and sustained a serious back injury. She contacted the Middletown, RI car accident lawyers for help. Attorney Gouveia was able to obtain an out-of-court settlement for the client from American Commerce Insurance.
Attorney Gouveia said, “Traumatic and catastrophic injuries often arise even when the victim has preexisting or degenerative conditions. The insurance company didn’t want to pay full value because the client had a preexisting back condition. We emphatically argued the condition was seriously aggravated as a result of the trauma, and was the sole reason for the extensive and invasive treatments and therapies she endured. Medical records, current and prior, were used as evidence to prove our position and we were able to convince the adjuster that the exacerbation and resulting treatment was significant. We also made sure the bills and liens were paid, allowing fair compensation to the client for the injuries suffered.”
Car accidents occur daily, but all too often they lead to serious physical, emotional, and financial strain for the all parties involved. An experienced car accident lawyer understands this, and will fight to obtain compensation for all of your injuries, including lost wages, inability to drive, surgery, medical examinations, physical therapy, and physical and emotional pain and suffering. It is rare that the at-fault driver has the funds required to pay for such extensive costs, which is why the insurance companies are typically involved. Again, an experienced car accident lawyer will be able to accurately assess the extent of your injuries and deal with the insurance company in getting you the settlement or award you are entitled to for your injuries.
