Recently, d’Oliveira & Associates’ attorney D. Robin Gouveia worked with co-counsel to obtain a $950,000 settlement from Bedievere Insurance Company. Our client was a pedestrian walking in a cross-walk with all traffic stopped when a truck failed to slow and hit her. She sustained serious life-threatening injuries and is lucky to be alive today.
Attorney Robin D. Gouveia stated that,
Due to the complexity of this case, co-counsel from our referral network was retained and we worked together to process and resolve this matter in a timely and efficient fashion. The matter came to us from a prior attorney. Shortly after the pretrial conference, the parties brought the case to mediation. Liability was heavily contested, however, it was ultimately conceded during the mediation session.”
Pedestrian accidents can be one of the most deadly forms of traffic accidents. If you are injured in a pedestrian accident, you should contact our New Bedford Car Accident Lawyers who are experienced with these types of cases. Being hit by a truck or SUV versus a four-door sedan, makes pedestrian death twice as likely. In fact, a recent study has linked the increase in SUVs on the road to the increase in pedestrian deaths in the U.S. today. Read more here.
