A Rhode Island man received an out of court settlement after severely injuring his back. The man was at work and receiving the delivery of a large object. The delivery driver, from another company, asked the man to help unload the object when it shifted and caused severe injury to his back. He contacted an experienced Warwick injury lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates. They remained jointly liable for the case along with another law firm, who has extensive experience in workers’ compensation and personal injury. After a third party lawsuit was filed against the delivery company, the case was settled out of court for $450,000. In addition to the settlement, the man received workers’ compensation benefits for being injured at work.
Obtaining compensation for a work place accident can be difficult because there can be multiple parties involved. There can be different people who could be held accountable for the injury such as the employer or a third party that comes to the workplace. In these types of injury cases, it is crucial to have an experienced Warwick injury lawyer that can manage the entire case and obtain compensation from all of the responsible parties involved.
