What rights do you have in Rhode Island in a bike accident causing personal injuries? At the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC, we are experienced in standing up for the rights of motorcycle, bicycle, and other bike accidents in personal injury cases. Today, I thought I would share a recent successful RI bike accident settlement.
Pawtucket, RI – Blow Stop Sign Leads to Concussion
Our client is a 51-year-old woman from Pawtucket, RI who was riding her tricycle near her house on a pleasant summer day.
Suddenly, a careless driver failed to yield –slamming into our client on her tricycle. The resulting crash caused her to strike her head and right side on the hard asphalt street.
Disoriented and in immediate pain, rescue personnel rushed her to Rhode Island Hospital, in Providence.
The fall resulted in personal injuries to our client’s head, chest, hip, and right side of her body. At the ER, doctors diagnosed multiple injuries including a head injury concussion.
Our client worked at a doctor’s office. The injuries sustained in the tricycle accident put our client out of work for weeks, incurring lost wages as she racked up medical bills for her treatment.
Having post-concussive symptoms and injuries to her right side shoulder and spinal column was discouraging and painful. For several months, our client followed the doctors’ orders trying to battle post-concussive symptoms including dizziness, photophobia, sonophobia, and nausea. Fortunately, the symptoms began to resolve as we delved into the personal injury legal claim.
The Bottaro Law Difference: Fighting For Maximum Policy Limit Benefits
Our client had a relative who was a well-known lawyer and knew our law firm’s reputation as following best personal injury lawyer practices. She contacted us and we dove into the investigation right away. As the founder of the firm, I personally handled this case from start to finish with the help of my amazing team!
In fighting with the other insurance companies, I had to battle the notion that our client was somehow comparatively negligent and also prove the extent of the lost wages, medical bills, and other damages.
With extensive knowledge of the insurance system, we made sure all of our client’s medical bills were covered and lost wages were recovered.
In an efficient time period, we were able to obtain a policy limit settlement from the negligent driver’s auto insurance policy, plus additional settlement funds from our client’s underinsured motorist policy.
Moreover, I became friends with our client, who actually knitted my team and me some very nifty dolls!
