Warwick, RI (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Rhode Island personal injury attorney Richard Sands of Sands Law Offices has recovered $625,000.00 for his client (name withheld for confidentiality). The woman’s car accident occurred in January of 2013 when a driver went through a red light and struck the woman’s car at approximately 60 miles per hour.
The woman, who lives in West Warwick, RI, was seriously injured as a result of the high speed collision. It took emergency responders over an hour using the “Jaws of Life” to remove the woman from her car. She then had to be airlifted to the trauma center at Rhode Island Hospital. She had forearm surgery and suffered multiple fractures, bruises and lacerations. Although she remained in the hospital for two weeks after the accident, the woman went on to make a remarkable recovery once she was discharged from the hospital. Her follow-up care included treatment with a pain clinic and orthopedic physicians.
The injured woman contacted Sands Law Offices in Warwick and was represented by Richard Sands. In addition to gathering all necessary paperwork regarding the woman’s medical treatment, Attorney Sands also kept in contact with local authorities to make sure that they followed through in obtaining a conviction against the other driver for illegally running the red light (RI Traffic Tribunal Summons No.: 1350750007). This was extremely important, since the other driver had tried to argue that the woman had gone through the red light when police first arrived at the scene to investigate the crash. The woman’s case could have been severely limited had the other driver not been convicted.
Attorney Sands also secured reports from medical experts that supported the woman’s claim. Specifically, evidence regarding her ability to work in the future and possible medical treatment she would eventually require proved crucial to obtaining such a favorable result.
Not wanting to have to relive this horrible accident again at trial, the woman made it clear that she wanted to settle her claim out of court. Following his client’s wishes, Attorney Sands acted swiftly and aggressively to negotiate the best settlement possible for his client. After the settlement of $ 625,000.00 was secured, Attorney Sands stated that “this woman received an excellent settlement for her claim. I’m most proud of the fact that this settlement will allow my client to rebuild her life after a terrible accident. By structuring a portion of her money, she will have a regular stream of income for many years to come.”
