DD&B Law Firm Wins Nearly $1M Auto Accident Verdict despite Challenging Odds

A Providence Superior Court jury awarded a 23-year-old mother and her daughter a combined $975,000 in compensation for injuries sustained to the mother in a rear-end auto collision in Warwick, Rhode Island in 2006. Personal injury law firm Decof, Decof & Barry, of Providence, was faced with two significant challenges in the case — the injuries sustained by the victim were not diagnosed until nearly a year after the auto accident, and she had been involved in a separate car accident as a teenager, prompting the defense to point to pre-existing conditions. DD&B Co-Managing Attorney Patrick Barry utilized his analytical skills and sound judgment to expertly assess the case, take it to trial and win, seeking justice for his client. Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly interviewed Mr. Barry about the case in a recent feature article.
