Laura Cameron, a lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates, successfully negotiated a settlement for a man who slipped and fell on a sheet of ice at his apartment complex causing him to suffer a serious ankle injury. He then contacted an experienced Warwick slip and fall lawyer for help. After an inquiry was made into the case, it was determined that the area where the man fell did not have appropriate lighting, making the area hazardous to all tenants in the complex. Attorney Laura Cameron was able to obtain the slip and fall settlement for the man, who received $175,000 for his injuries.
With regards to this settlement, attorney Laura Cameron commented, “We were able to resolve this matter successfully through mediation, providing this client with a favorable settlement and allowing him to forego lengthy litigation.”
