D. Robin Gouveia, a lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates, successfully obtained a $150,000 settlement for a woman who slipped and fell inside a supermarket in the Fall River area. The woman slipped and fell on a wet floor when she attempted to reach for an item. As a result, she suffered a serious injury to her knee that required major surgery followed by months of physical therapy. She contacted an experienced Fall River, MA slip and fall lawyer to help her get compensation. Attorney D. Robin Gouveia was able to evaluate her case, provide her with guidance, and fight for her rights.
Attorney D. Robin Gouveia said, “Slip and fall cases often result in severe and catastrophic injuries. Here, the client’s case directly related to recent changes in the slip and fall laws. We used our knowledge of these changes in our arguments with the insurance company, to the benefit of our client.”
