Recently d’Oliveira & Associates, while remaining jointly responsible with a Warwick, RI lawyer, obtained a $500,000 settlement from Liberty Mutual Insurance for a Warren, RI man, who was seriously injured while on the job. The client broke his leg while making a delivery.
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira said, “The lawyer we referred this case to got an excellent settlement on this case. I rarely have seen in my long career many workers compensation settlements that have settled for this much money.”
Workers’ compensation is an employee insurance program that provides benefits to an employee who is injured while on the job, regardless if the employer was at fault. In these cases, your employer’s insurance company will compensate you for your lost income, medical expenses, and in some cases, provide a lump sum settlement. Additionally, you may also be able to receive other benefits, including money for permanent scarring and job retraining.
If you or a loved one were recently injured while on the job, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and lost earnings, among other losses. You should contact an experienced Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation Lawyer to discuss all of your options and to get you the best possible compensation for your injuries.
