d'Oliveira & Associates Helps Rhode Island Woman Receive $130,000 in a Slip and Fall Incident

(PRWEB) May 09, 2013

The personal injury and slip and fall attorneys at d'Oliveira & Associates recently recovered an out of court settlement of $130,000 for one of their clients (Warwick, RI District Court, Case Number: CV-21410). According to the complaint, the client was allegedly injured when exiting a negligently maintained premise and slipped while trying to avoid the icy conditions and the resulting fall caused a fracture in her right hand and bruising her chest. Accourding to the complaint, after complaining of continued wrist pain, doctors discovered a displaced intra-articular radius fracture, which required an additional cast and surgery.

Attorney Paul d’Oliveira stated that “I feel Attorney Laura Cameron got a great settlement here as slip and fall cases are difficult cases to win in court because juries normally rule that the injured person is partially at fault in a slip and fall case in wintery conditions. Juries generally feel people should be extra careful to look out for ice when it is winter and there is snow on the ground.”

Although slip and fall accidents are very common, it may be relatively unknown that the owner of the premises where the fall occurred may be liable for the injuries. Owners of private property, homes, businesses, and even public areas are responsible for the safety and maintenance of the premises. Even though many people believe that an owner is not responsible for hazardous weather conditions, the settlement in this case highlights the reality that owners still do have a duty to maintain their premises from dangerous conditions such as ice.

Because the responsibility and liability of the owners varies in regard to the type of property and the purpose of the visit, it can be very difficult to determine whether or not that owner is liable for your injuries. If having been injured in a slip and fall accident and entitled to compensation, the last thing wanted is go through the complex process of determining who is liable. That is why it is important to contact an experienced Rhode Island personal injury lawyer who will help guide you through the process and get you the damages you deserve.
