Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, from d’Oliveira & Associates, recently got a Pawtucket woman $150,000 settlement from the Harleysville Insurance Company, despite there being only $535 worth of damage to her vehicle from a rear end collision in Providence, RI. The vehicle she was in was rear ended by another driver and she suffered serious neck and back injuries. She hired the Pawtucket car accident lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates to represent her.
Attorney Gouveia stated that “despite minimal property damage to the vehicle the client was operating, we were able to obtain a very fair settlement. The argument made to achieve this was using the mechanism of injury argument. Specifically, we argued the client was sitting in a seat which was “bouncy”. At impact, she was turned slightly to the right and the position of her body, while being tossed and jerked at impact, was the cause of a wrenching in her back. The injury ultimately required her to undergo surgery. We worked on getting the medical providers to accept less regarding her medical bills, once the final offer was made, to put together a nice settlement package for the woman.”
