A Rhode Island woman was severely injured in January of 2013 when another driver went through a red light and collided with her vehicle. The other driver was traveling at approximately 60 miles per hour, and immediately attempted to argue that the woman had in fact gone through the red light. Meanwhile, the woman was seriously injured and trapped in her crushed vehicle. First responders had to use the Jaws of Life to remove her from the car. She was airlifted to the trauma center at Rhode Island Hospital, where she underwent forearm surgery and was treated for several fractures, lacerations and bruises. She spent a week in the hospital before undergoing a lengthy recovery working with a pain clinic and orthopedic physician.
A Rhode Island law firm, Sands Law Offices, represented the woman when she filed a lawsuit against the other driver. When you’ve been in a car accident, it is important to seek diligent representation immediately. This woman’s attorney was able to maintain contact with local police to ensure the other driver was held responsible in traffic court for running the red light. So when the woman’s civil lawsuit went to court seeking money damages, she did not have to argue who ran the red light—a traffic tribunal had already determined that issue. Her attorney was also able to locate reports from medical experts that supported the woman’s claim for damages.
The case was eventually settled for $625,000. The Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy Jr. and Affiliates is dedicated to fully researching our clients’ claims, negotiating settlements and getting our clients the compensation they deserve. Your needs are our top priority!
