Tiverton, RI Car Accident Lawyer: Bottaro Wins $245,000.00 Settlement for Road Rage Car Accident Victim

Are you an aggressive driver?  Did you know that road rage is a major highway safety concern in the United States?  As a Tiverton, RI car accident lawyer and owner of a personal injury firm that serves clients in RI and MA, we know just how common road rage car accidents are.

In fact, nearly 80% of drivers in the United States admit to having significant anger, aggression or road rage behind the wheel.  People have reported the occasional on-the-road behavior that we now describe as aggressive driving since the advent of motorized transport, and quite possibly, since the beginning of vehicular travel.

Anyone who has spent more than a few hours in an automobile has experienced other drivers’ rudeness.  We recently settled a case for one of our clients that was almost forced off the road while driving in Tiverton, RI.

Tiverton, Rhode Island Car Accident Results in Severe Personal Injuries

Our client served in the community as a firefighter for over 30 years and was a lieutenant for 4.  After his accident, our client knew he needed to contact a Tiverton, RI car accident lawyer.  When our client reach out to us, he was suffering from tremendous pain and was out of work due to the accident.

When he told us about the car accident, we knew we had to help him.  He was not only missing time from giving back to the community, but was missing work at a local auto shop — one of his favorite past times.

One early morning, our client was driving on Tiverton Highway 24.  Seemingly out of nowhere, an aggressive driver started tailgating and flashing his lights at our client.

The careless driver then attempted to pass our client and merge into his lane.  As the driver impatiently attempted his merge, he struck our client’s passenger side and caused our client to spin out of control!

Our client was in immediate pain and needed to be further evaluated by paramedics.

The negligent driver was later cited on three different accounts, including “Reasonable And Prudent Speeds,” and “Lane Roadway Violation.”

Our client suffered personal injuries to his left shoulder, back, left wrist, and was feeling a lot of radiating pain and numbness on his left side.

He was later referred to an Orthopedic surgeon for his left shoulder and was suffering a tear in his rotator cuff.  He would need surgery and would have to undergo rehabilitation treatment for some time.

Obtaining More Than Maximum Settlement For Our Client

Post-surgery, our client was hoping to get back to work but he needed time to heal.  He underwent physical therapy for some time.

As our client continued to treat and heal, we took care of the harassing insurance companies and collected all of his medical records and bills for his case.

Luckily, when we obtained the police report, the careless driver was not only cited, but there was a witness that saw the car accident.  Having a witness in a personal injury case can be very beneficial to your claim.

Not only were we able to get the liable party to accept liability, but we were able to fight and receive more than maximum settlement from the bodily injury claim.  We were also able to tap into his Med Pay for additional coverage to help him with his financial losses.

After several months, our client visited us healed and happy to pick up his settlement check.  He would be able to get back to volunteering in the community and working on cars!

Road rage and aggressive driving can result in severe personal injuries and even fatal car accidents.  If you or a loved one suffer personal injuries as a result of another’s road rage, contact us anytime, 24/7 for a free consultation.
