Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently obtained a $160,000 settlement from Arbella Insurance Company for a client who was injured in a car accident. The client was the driver of a vehicle, who had the right of way, when the other driver failed to yield and pulled out in front of her. As a result, the client sustained extensive injuries to her hip and lower back that required major surgery, followed by physical therapy. 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 Arbella, the liability insurer.
Attorney Gouveia said, “We pursued the insurance company for the driver who caused the accident and the client’s resulting injuries. We also supported and guided the client through the maze of medical treatment that she endured. Her suffering through varying therapies and treatments was often overwhelming for her, but we were only a call away to assist, explain and redirect, if necessary. Constant contact to keep her informed was helpful to her. Once the insurance company had our demand for compensation with the supporting medical bills, negotiations were productive and the documentation was used to convince the insurer to pay what my client deserved.”
Settlements are often agreed to by both parties, however, they are not always simple. The process involves understanding how the car accident occurred, determining who was at fault, organizing medical documentation and calculating damages. To do this, the process requires a skilled lawyer who has detailed knowledge about car accident laws and is an experienced negotiator in order to obtain the best possible outcome for the client.
