Recently d’Oliveira & Associates attorney, D. Robin Gouveia, obtained a $100,000 settlement from Commerce and Geico Insurance for a New Bedford, MA man, who was injured in a motorcycle accident. Our client, who had the right of way, was struck by a vehicle coming from a side street. He sustained a fractured leg and extensive road rash. After he received emergency medical care, he contacted our New Bedford motorcycle accident lawyers to assist him with this painful situation. Attorney D. Robin Gouveia and paralegal Maricza began helping this client through the legal process.
Attorney D. Robin Gouveia said, “We determined the Defendant’s policy limits very quickly and made a demand for that amount due to the severity of the client’s injuries. Once we secured the limits from the tortfeasor, we pursued the client’s Underinsured Motorist coverage and secured the remaining exposure of the policy limits. Thereafter, we negotiated with lienholders and put a settlement package together for the client to maximize his net recovery.”
An accident for a motorcyclist can be a life-altering event. The average weight of a car is just over 4,000 lbs., according to the EPA in 2018. The force of the impact from over 2 tons of solid metal to a motorcyclist can leave debilitating and in some cases, permanent injuries. Yet, despite the obvious severities of these accidents, insurance companies will try and pay you as little as possible for all you have suffered and lost. For this reason, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer who will fight hard to get you all the compensation you deserve.
