The auto accident attorneys at d’Oliveira & Associates recovered $60,000 for their client (name withheld for confidentiality) following negotiations with the insurance company of an opposing driver after that driver’s vehicle lost control and struck the car being operated by the firm’s client.
The woman, who lives in Warwick, RI, was seriously injured when an opposing vehicle lost control and collided with her vehicle. She suffered a head injury, a neck sprain, as well as a bruise to her right knee. She treated with a chiropractor for her neck pain and also had arthroscopic surgery with an orthopedic surgeon to repair torn cartilage in her right knee.
The injured woman contacted the Warwick office of d’Oliveira & Associates and was represented by the staff attorney there, Laura Cameron. Attorney Cameron compiled all of the necessary paperwork regarding the woman’s medical treatment and other associated losses, and soon after she began negotiating a settlement with the opposing driver’s insurance company. The claim ultimately settled for $60,000. Attorney Cameron stated, after the case was settled, that “this client received an excellent settlement without having to go to court, so she did not have to wait that long to get her settlement.”
