A Rhode Island man, who slipped and fell, got a $300,000 out of court settlement. The man was walking down the stairs at a relative’s house and caught his foot on damaged carpeting. He fell down the stairs and suffered a serious foot injury. He contacted an experienced Woonsocket, RI slip and fall lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates, who remained jointly liable for the case, which was handled by a law firm they work with who has extensive experience in litigating slip and fall cases. The case was settled, after a lawsuit was filed, for the insurance policy limits of $300,000.
Obtaining compensation for a slip and fall accident can be difficult, especially when the owner of the property is someone you know. When a person is injured at a friend or family member’s house, they sometimes hesitate to file a claim. However, often times, doing so is the only way to ensure that injuries are compensated for. Typically, the property owner will have insurance and the insurance company will be the ones that provide payment if someone is injured. If the property owner has adequate coverage, they will experience minimal or no loss at all.
