Automobile, Truck & Motorcycle Accident Case Wins

$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).

Confidential multimillion-dollar settlement on behalf of a young girl who suffered severe brain and nervous system injuries when she was struck by a vehicle leased from a car manufacturer. This case is widely recognized as Rhode Island’s largest individual civil settlement.

One million dollar settlement on behalf of elderly woman seriously injured when a shipping company’s truck negligently pulled out in front of her.

$2.5 million settlement on behalf of the family of a municipal worker who was struck and killed while working in the breakdown lane.
