New Bedford pedestrian struck by a car gets 950,000 Car Accident Settlement

Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, of d’Oliveira & Associates, recently obtained a $950,000 out of court settlement for a woman who was injured in a car accident. The woman was struck as a pedestrian by a driver of a company vehicle and she sustained a fractured knee, among other broken bones and facial lacerations. She contacted the New Bedford, MA car accident lawyers for help. Attorney Gouveia was able to obtain an out-of-court settlement for the client.

Attorney Gouveia said, “Due to the complexity of this case, we retained an experienced Plymouth, MA lawyer and worked to resolve this matter in a timely and efficient fashion. We organized and obtained all medical records, bills and had the client examined by a physician for a permanency evaluation. The insurance company argued that the client was partially responsible for the accident, however, it was ultimately conceded that she was not responsible during mediation.”

Contrary to popular belief, a car accident may include an accident between a pedestrian and a car. A car crash involving a pedestrian with speeds excessing 30 miles per hour can result in serious injuries and, in some cases, fatalities. However, a motorist can still severely disable a pedestrian in a car crash with the speed of the driver as slow as 10 miles per hour. An experienced car accident lawyer would be capable to assess the car accident and seek compensation from the suitable party.
