After suffering severe injuries in an accident that was not her fault, a young woman went to Attorney Gouveia, managing attorney of the New Bedford office at d’Oliveira and Associates, for help. She had been a passenger in the car when the accident occurred. The driver of the vehicle was speeding and driving recklessly when she lost control of the vehicle and crashed. As a result of the accident, our client was rushed to the hospital and required a lengthy hospital stay to stabilize her multiple injuries. Attorney Gouveia was able to secure a favorable settlement with both the liability insurer and the underinsurance carrier to make sure that our client received the money she was entitled to for her injuries and lost wages. It is important to hire an experienced New Bedford car accident lawyer who can handle your case and make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
What Happens When the at-Fault Driver’s Liability Insurance is not Enough?
The expenses associated with a car accident can add up very quickly, especially when the injured party requires in-patient care or surgery. Recovery time also usually means lost time at work while personal bills and other expenses continue to mount. These circumstances can not only be stressful for an injured person, but can also present unique challenges when the at-fault driver has minimum liability insurance to pay for the injuries and expenses incurred. Sometimes, the expenses will actually exceed the amount of coverage. In these cases, it may be necessary to get the driver’s underinsurance company involved. This is exactly what Attorney Gouveia did on behalf of our client in this case, and as a result, she was able to ensure that our client received a favorable settlement for the extensive injuries she suffered and for her time out of work. It is important to hire an experienced lawyer who knows how to obtain coverage from the underinsurance company in these kinds of cases so you receive the settlement you deserve.
