Attorney D. Robin Gouveia from d’Oliveira & Associates, along with a co-counsel trial attorney, recently negotiated a $450,000 settlement for a New Bedford, MA man who was injured on a construction site. While working on scaffolding, unsecured planks collapsed and the worker fell causing him to sustain multiple painful physical injuries.
Attorney Gouveia stated,
due to the complexity of this work related construction site incident, we worked jointly with co-counsel to ensure the best and most efficient result for this client. Liability was heavily contested and shortly prior to trial, after an intensive, extended mediation session, a settlement was reached. Thereafter, we worked on the worker’s compensation insurer to convince them to maximize a settlement package most beneficial to our client.”
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira stated,
often we will bring in co-counsel from another law firm, who has more experience in certain types of personal injury cases, such as construction accident cases like this one, as we want to get top dollar for every client. If it means we have to split the fee and make less money, then we are willing to do that as the client always comes first.”
