Personal Injury Law Firm Helps New Bedford Man Recover $650,000 For Auto Accident Injuries

(PRWEB) May 17, 2013

The auto accident attorneys at d'Oliveira & Associates negotiated a $650,000 settlement with the insurance company of a truck driver after the truck driver collided with one of the firm’s clients (New Bedford, MA, District Court, Case Number: NB-11445). According to the complaint, the client, a New Bedford man, was seriously injured when a tractor trailer failed to stop and crashed into his vehicle. The impact propelled the vehicle forward and caused a six car pile-up. Emergency personnel had to remove the man from the wreckage and immediately take him to be treated at a trauma center. He was treated as an in-patient for two days and subsequently underwent many treatments. He suffered serious and pervasive injuries from this tractor trailer accident such as injuries to his head, neck, shoulders, back, and chest. The injuries to his shoulders required surgery. He also suffered cuts to his face and arm that required stitches, as well as significant bruising to his chest. Additionally, he sustained a concussion, facial fractures, and dental fractures. These injuries caused substantial pain and amounted to substantial medical expenses. The injuries were so severe that the man became disabled and has been unable to work since the date of the motor vehicle accident.

The injured man contacted our New Bedford Office and its managing attorney, Robin Gouveia. She filed a claim on behalf of the client for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. After negotiating with the insurance company, Attorney Gouveia was able to settle the client’s claim for $650,000.

Paul d’Oliveira, the founding attorney of the law firm, stated that, “Attorney Robin Gouveia has been instrumental in obtaining favorable settlements for many of our clients. Her previous experience as a claims adjuster and her many years of legal experience have been invaluable in helping clients obtain the settlements they deserve. Here, our client was involved in a very serious auto accident and the staff at our New Bedford office worked tirelessly to help him through this challenging matter.”

This car accident exemplifies the dangers that large tractor trailers pose to passenger vehicles. In fact, between 2001 and 2003 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration conducted a study which found that of the 78,000 truck accidents studied 68,000 of these accidents were attributable to the driver (i). Here, the tractor trailer driver was driving too fast and failed to recognize our client was coming to a stop.
