Recently d’Oliveira & Associates Cranston personal injury lawyer, Laura Cameron, obtained a $125,000 settlement from Nationwide Insurance Company for a Cranston man, who was injured in a motor vehicle accident where he was hit as a pedestrian, causing him to sustain a fracture, which required extensive medical treatment.
Attorney Laura Cameron said, “I was very happy to help this client and I am thankful that we got him a quick resolution for all of the available insurance. I feel he got a very fair settlement.”
When someone is injured by a motor vehicle, people tend to think of car accidents involving two (2) or more motor vehicles. Sadly, those same negligent drivers also hit pedestrians. According to a 2017 statistic, there were nearly 6,000 pedestrian deaths caused by car drivers. While a pedestrian accident can occur at any part of the day, most pedestrian accidents happen in the evening, due to low visibility. The National Highway Safety Agency says 26% of all pedestrian fatalities occur between 6 P.M. and 9 P.M.
