What happens after a torn rotator cuff in a car accident?
Car accidents can happen in a blink of an eye and can result in severe personal injuries. In today’s blog, I want to review a recent case success, in which we obtained a $155,000.00 settlement for our client, a 59-year-old woman from Portsmouth, RI.
Tiverton RI Car Accident Leads To Rotator Cuff Shoulder Surgery
On a clear winter day, our client had just picked up her sister in Tiverton, RI. The pair traveled north on Main Road, towards Route 24, to go shopping at Walmart in Fall River.
As they passed just north of the East Road/ neck Road intersection, the at-fault driver swerved and turned into the opposite lane of travel. The sudden and unexplained action caused the at-fault party’s vehicle to smash into the front of our client’s vehicle.
The collision, being significant enough to deploy airbags, caused major personal injuries to our client. Our client would present to Newport Hospital later that day with neck, right hand, and shoulder pain complaints.
Our client underwent months of physical therapy for her injuries. Only later diagnosed with right shoulder supraspinatus and infraspinatus rotator cuff tears and C5-6 and C6-7 bulging and stenosis affecting the nerves.
Treatment for these personal injuries required our client to receive multiple epidural injections and two surgeries, including arthroscopy of the right shoulder. While these surgeries help relieve some of our client’s pain, she was left with a risk of permanent personal injuries and scaring.

Auto Insurance companies bank on the fact that you will not know to text or call my team and me! The truth is, while they may talk nice to you, they will not pay you nearly as much without a personal injury firm on your side. It takes a lot of hard work, investigation, and diligence to get clients adequate compensation for their injuries. At the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC, we pride ourselves on never settling until the needs of our clients have been met.
While the insurance company accepted full liability for the accident, they attempted to lowball the case. I was able to use several strategies and know-how to get this case settled out of court.
