Attorney D. Robin Gouveia from d’Oliveira & Associates recently negotiated a $230,000 settlement for a Fall River, MA man from Commerce Insurance. Our client was traveling through an intersection with the right of way when another driver failed to stop at a red light. This resulted in serious injuries to our client’s back and shoulders.
Attorney Gouveia, who worked on the case, stated,
It was immediately determined the other party was the sole cause of the accident; however, the driver had a personal policy. We were able to obtain a settlement from the insurance company for the vehicle and the excess from the driver. We maintained constant contact with the client through this stressful time and kept him informed at every stage. We used wage and medical documents, as well as evidence of the impact the accident had on his daily life, to support the claim and convince the insurance company to pay what the client deserved.”
It is important to note that a recent study revealed that victims of car accidents increase their settlement amount by more than 40% with a lawyer representing them.
