Scene of car accident

Attorney Mike Bottaro Helps Surviving Spouse, Children, Grandson

In the summer of 2014, a Southeastern Massachusetts driver took an illegal left hand turn that would forever devastate one family from that date forward.  Attorney Mike Bottaro represented the family of a grandmother and her longtime husband as well as their grandchild, all of whom were occupants in the vehicle struck by this man.  The severe car accident totaled both vehicles and sent everyone to the hospital via ambulance.

When the family came to the Bottaro Law Firm in the days following the tragic auto accident, there were a lot of questions. Attorney Mike Bottaro answered questions, and immediately opened an investigation into the car accident, contacting local authorities and sending an investigator to the accident scene.  Mike remained in personal contact with the family members throughout the pendency of the civil case.  During the case, the at-fault driver’s insurance company disputed the cause of the injuries and other details involving the collision. Nevertheless, our law firm’s investigation and review of hundreds of pages of medical records helped reveal the truth. This family will never be the same. On the civil legal side, however, The Bottaro Law Firm ultimately was able to successfully reach a maximum policy limit settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company to bring some small amount of closure and relief to the family.
