Rhode Island Slip And Fall Case Settles For $140,000.00

No matter the time of year, our firm is busy fighting for the rights of the injured throughout our Rhode Island and Massachusetts communities.  In today’s blog, I’d like to recap a great settlement we obtained for our lovely client who suffered a slip and fall in Cranston, Rhode Island. 

Cranston Slip & Fall With Multiple Personal Injuries 

Slip and fall personal injuries occur when property owners do not maintain their premises in a safe manner. This area of the law is called premises liability.  

In this case, there was a large commercial property owner who did not bother to safely clear the parking lot of snow and ice.

Our client is a middle-aged woman who arrived on the property for a doctor’s appointment.  She was trying to navigate the snow and ice in the parking lot below when she had a terrible slip and fall.

What Is My Slip And Fall Case Worth? RI Woman Sustain Fractured Wrist And Knee Injury.

Our client suffered multiple personal injuries including a fractured wrist and fractured leg. 

Being that our client is right-handed, having the difficulty of a fracture to the right wrist was enough to put our client out of her day-to-day routine and into treatment.  She also had a pre-existing knee injury. In this slip and fall, it was re-injured, causing great pain and other symptoms.  

Ultimately, our client required wrist and knee surgeries.
