Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently obtained a $92,000 on behalf of a man who was injured in an Amherst, MA car accident. The man pulled over on the highway to offer assistance to an unidentified driver who crashed into the median. Our client, now a pedestrian, was struck by the unidentified driver as he fled the scene, causing our client to suffer extensive knee injuries. He called the Fall River, MA car accident lawyers for help, and attorney Gouveia was able to obtain a favorable settlement for the client without going to court.
Attorney Gouveia said “this client suffered significant injuries when a tortfeasor struck him as he was standing outside his car after a crash. The tortfeasor then fled the scene and was unidentified. We were able to present a claim to the client’s insurance company under the Uninsured Motorist coverage he had on his own vehicle, which covered him for this exact purpose. We monitored his treatment and recovery and when it was time, we advocated for him. We used medical documents, as well as evidence of the impact the accident had on him to support the claim and convince the insurance company to pay what the client deserved.”
Our law firm has been handling car accident cases for almost 30 years. In that time we have seen many unfortunate situations in which car accident victims have suffered life altering injuries. This experience has also given us the tools necessary to help those victims secure just compensation for their injuries. When it comes to car accidents, the at-fault driver is usually unable to cover the costs of the victim’s injuries out of pocket. As such, the insurance companies are brought into the case. The insurance company hires representatives who offer car accident victims the lowest possible settlement in an effort to save the company money. It is in these dealings with the insurance company representatives that our experienced lawyers will make the difference between the settlement you are offered and the settlement you deserve.
