Past Success in Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accidents
- $18 million jury verdict on behalf of a 48-year-old woman against the owner and lessor of a motor vehicle that struck the woman’s car and paralyzed her. This verdict followed a precedent-setting decision by the Rhode Island Supreme Court in this case, that held that lessors of motor vehicles were subject to Rhode Island’s vicarious liability laws. See Oliveira v. Lombardi, 794 A.2d 453 (R.I. 2002).
