After suffering injuries in a car accident caused by another driver, a New Bedford woman contacted one of the experienced car accident lawyers at d’Oliveira and Associates to file a New Bedford car accident lawsuit on her behalf. The case went to mediation, and Attorney D. Robin Gouveia was able to effectively negotiate with the insurance company to secure a favorable settlement on behalf of the client. While reflecting on the case, Attorney Gouveia stated as follows:
We immediately assessed the other driver was the sole and proximate cause of the accident. The injuries were debilitating, and we helped the client through the maze of medical treatment ordered by her physicians so she could reach maximum recovery. The stress of the accident was significant, so we maintained constant contact with her in order to keep her informed and supported. The matter was brought to mediation and while causation of the injuries and the accident was heavily contested at that time, the parties reached an amicable agreement. The insurance company conceded and paid an amount the client deserved.”
How Can Mediation Impact My Car Accident Case?
In certain instances, the insurance company may question how the injuries suffered in a car accident were caused or even deny that the injuries were caused by the accident. When this happens, the case may go through a process called mediation in an effort to reach a settlement.
This process can be complex and even overwhelming depending on the facts of the case. Having an experienced lawyer by your side can be a big advantage. In fact, it has been shown that hiring a lawyer to represent you in your car accident case can lead to a bigger settlement.
