Injury lawyer provides top back to school safety tips for Rhode Island families, unveils new website.

Providence, R.I. – August 29, 2013 – Providence personal injury attorney Mike Bottaro appeared on The Rhode Show earlier this week to provide back to school tips to local Rhode Island families. Attorney Bottaro spoke about transportation safety and the importance of early preparation for parents and children.

During his segment, Attorney Bottaro reminded all parents of the importance of transportation safety during the school year. Whether children walk or bike to school, ride the bus, or ride to school with a parent, there are certain safety precautions that must be taken.

Attorney Bottaro’s safety advice applies to all drivers, not just parents. Due to increased pedestrian traffic near school zones during morning and after-school hours, all motorists must be vigilant to prevent accidents and injuries.

“As a new school year approaches, it’s important to remind parents and all drivers about back to school safety tips,” said Attorney Mike Bottaro, owner of The Bottaro Law Firm in Cranston, R.I. “By following these simple steps, we can ensure a safe and enjoyable school year for all Rhode Island children.”

The Bottaro Law Firm now has a new website to better serve Rhode Island’s injury victims. The new site offers more free resources, including a collection of safety-themed infographics and links to government sites, advocacy groups, and other helpful resources for those involved in Rhode Island car accidents and other personal injury cases.

RI Injury Lawyer Mike Bottaro Obtains $600,000 Award for Truck Accident Victim

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 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.
