West Warwick, Rhode Island Pedestrian Injured In Car Accident – Suffers Multiple Personal Injuries
One afternoon, our client was walking on Main Street in West Warwick, a popular area for pedestrians and bicyclists. A normal afternoon suddenly turned into a day our client would never forget.
As our client crossed the street with the legal right of way, a careless driver took a left-hand turn into the crosswalk, striking our client.
The careless driver struck her with such force that our client was pinned to the ground and in immediate pain. Can you imagine that?
What Do I Need To Know About The Law And My Pedestrian Car Accident?
One of the most common causes of serious pedestrian personal injuries include drivers that fail to stop at stop signs or traffic lights.
A recent article from The Providence Journal provides new, analyzed statistics on the number of people on foot who are killed by motor vehicles.
The director of the Rhode Island Department of Transportation presents that the state averaged about 9 pedestrians killed per year during 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. In 2022, Rhode Island had seven pedestrian fatalities, the same as in 2021.

Our Client Did The Right Thing By Texting Us Right Away!
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average weight of a vehicle is around 4,094 pounds. In this case, our client was pinned down by a heavy car leading to her personal injuries. A small car weights around 2,600 pounds, while a larger vehicle weighs around 4,400 pounds. Our client was struck by a Subaru Outback without any preparation for impact.
The West Warwick Police Department cited the careless driver at the scene for failure to yield. Meanwhile, professionals on the scene rushed our client to Kent Hospital.
She arrived at Kent Hospital with personal injuries to her right knee, right elbow, and toes. She was immediately referred to an orthopedic doctor and needed an MRI to check for fractures.
The last thing anyone wants to do is answer a bunch of insurance company calls, especially when you are trying to recover and have never experienced an accident like this before.
Our client did the right thing by texting our personal injury law firm right away. Not only did she need help managing the insurance companies, but she was going to be out of work for some time as well. We were able to manage the insurance companies for her and provide her assistance with getting treatment.
$100,000.00 Settlement Obtained By Personal Injury Lawyers At Bottaro Injury Lawyers For Rhode Island Pedestrian
Immediately, our investigation team went out to the scene and documented the citation with the at-fault party. After several months of physical therapy and orthopedic treatments, our client started to get back on her feet and becoming more mobile again.
Ultimately, we were able to reach a settlement of $100,000.00. By then, our client was feeling much better, and it was much easier to recover with us on her side!
Unfortunately, insurance companies are known to bully personal injury claimants that fail to retain attorneys. We are here to help dispute bad-faith practices.
At our firm, we fight to the last penny for our injured clients. We knew we had a great case… provided that we investigated and put it together. Unlike other lawyers, our firm has the resources and expertise to win these cases for maximum, best settlements.
