RI Truck Accident Lawyer Helps Cumberland Man Recover Medical Expenses
Cranston, RI – July 31, 2013 – Settlement has been reached on behalf of a Cumberland, Rhode Island man who underwent two cervical surgeries following a highway collision when his truck struck steel beams that had fallen off a flatbed truck.
Personal injury attorney Mike Bottaro of the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC successfully argued on his client’s behalf for an award that included medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and permanent disfigurement.
In March 2008, a commercial flatbed truck operator was attempting to transport steel I-beams in Rhode Island. The straps securing the beams failed, causing them to crash onto the busy highway. Our client was operating his truck behind the flatbed when he unavoidably struck the beams, causing his brakes to lock and his vehicle to skid out of control and collide with a curb barrier. The man suffered multiple injuries and was transported via ambulance to the hospital.
Our client underwent two spinal surgeries. After multiple rounds of physical therapy, the truck accident left the personal injury client with significant impairments to his daily functioning.
During his treatment and rehabilitation, the at-fault trucking company went into insolvency proceedings. Rhode Island personal injury attorney Mike Bottaro filed legal actions in two states. During the case, Attorney Bottaro consulted with an expert orthopedic surgeon and went through a special arbitration procedure. The parties ultimately agreed on a $600,000.00 award.
