Our client was a passenger on a bus that was rear ended by another car on a Warwick road. As a result of the accident, the client suffered from neck and back pain and a knee injury. In order to overcome the pain associated with these injuries, she underwent medical assessments and partook in physical therapy to improve her mobility.
In the midst of these medical appointments, the client acquired the legal expertise of a d’Oliveira & Associates Warwick Car Accident Lawyer who negotiated with the insurance company and obtained a favorable settlement to compensate for her losses. Attorney D. Robin Gouveia, our attorney who successful handled this case, states:
Clients often will have had pain to a particular body part before an accident happens and the symptoms are greatly increased following the trauma. In this case, the client had shoulder pain temporarily but more significant knee pain and trauma following the accident. We readily admit to the preexisting pain but argued with details, the increased symptoms and limitations she experienced after the crash. Through the use of medical records we were able to show that the previous injuries were alleviated before the accident and that they were aggravated following the accident. We had photos of the scarring she was left with and used these during our negotiations. Since she was in the course and scope of her employment when the accident occurred, the bills were paid for by workers’ compensation. We made sure all bills had been paid, then we negotiated with the workers’ compensation insurer on their subrogation lien to maximize the net recovery to the client.”
What If I Am Injured In A Car Accident While Working?
You may be entitled to collect workers’ compensation benefits if you are injured while at work. This is commonly referred to as “in the scope of employment,” and the benefits may consist of lost wages, medical expenses, job training, and other losses. These types of claims require an injured party to adequately document the accident and submit a report containing the details of the accident to an employer in a timely manner.
Often times a car accident claim may be connected to a workers’ compensation claim, so it is important to be informed about this possibility for your case. Our experienced Warwick Car Accident Lawyers are happy to assist you with your case and provide you with the legal knowledge that you need to ensure that you receive a favorable settlement to cover all losses, resulting from both the car accident and workers’ compensation claims.
