Accidents that happen in Rhode Island and Massachusetts where drivers miss judge oncoming traffic often lead to horrific accidents. In today’s blog I want to recount a maximum policy limit settlement we obtained for our client who suffered multiple personal injuries due to one of these accidents.
Personal Injury Car Accident With Hand Fracture Needing Surgery
Our client was driving home from his job as a refinisher in Portsmouth, RI.
As he approached the intersection of West Main Rd and Woolsey Rd, suddenly and without warning, the at-fault driver pulled out in front of our client, cut him off and caused a major car accident.
Ambulance transported our client to Newport Hospital with multiple injuries. Most notably, our client suffered a comminuted fracture of the fourth metacarpal and recommended that he see an orthopedic specialist.
Upon visiting the orthopedic specialist, it was quickly determined that our client would need Open Reduction Internal Fixation surgery. In this type of surgery, doctors install a permanent metal plate into our client’s hand. For the next nine weeks, our client underwent physical therapy to help rebuild the strength in his hand.
Bottaro Files Suit And Insurer Ultimately Caves And Pays Maxim mum Policy Limit !
At the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC, we pride ourselves on making sure our clients get adequate compensation for their injuries. In our investigation, we quickly realized that our client would be left with a semi-permanent injury and scarring.
Unfortunately, the same could not be said for the insurance company. When they wouldn’t budge on their low offer, my team and I looked to file suit.
With our 20 years of experience, we try and do everything we can to settle cases fast and before they go to trial. In an effort to avoid a lengthy trial process, we took the statement of a doctor who’s an expert on these types of surgeries.
With this in hand, we went back to the insurance company one last time to try and settle out of court. With this evidence, they had no choice but to settle for the maxim policy limit of $127,500.
I am grateful we could reach this settlement for our client, as they can now get back to doing the things they love, like finishing his model yacht with his kids.
