A woman slipping and falling on icy pavement.

Recently d’Oliveira & Associates attorney, D. Robin Gouveia,  obtained $96,000 settlement from Zurich North America for a woman who was a victim in a slip and fall accident. Our client was exiting a hotel in Massachusetts, where she slipped and fell on untreated ice and snow. This fall caused our client to fracture her ankle, which required medical treatment and forced her to miss time at work. Soon after the accident, she would contact our Fall River office to discuss her legal rights. Attorney D. Robin Gouveia and her staff immediately started working on her case.

Attorney D. Robin Gouveia said, “Liability was disputed; however, we were able to prove a dangerous condition existed on the property and the property owner failed to repair or warn of the dangerous condition.  Due to the injuries she suffered, which were severe, my client had extensive medical bills and lost wages.  We were able to get significant reductions for the outstanding medical bills related to the incident.  A final package was put together which allowed a fair net recovery to the client.”
