Rhode Island Slip-And-Fall Case Success: Bottaro Law Firm Settles Slip-and-Fall Case Including Right Knee Surgery for $100,000.00!
January 3rd, 2020
I want to share success in a recent Providence, Rhode Island slip and fall case requiring attention to detail, preparation and execution. I am proud of our team here at Bottaro Law in helping our client secure $100,000.00 for her injuries:
Providence, Rhode Island Slip & Fall and Personal Injuries: Knee Surgery
It was a cold evening, but there had not been snow for some days. The landowner should have had his business cleared and salted by now. This carelessness, it turns out, would turn into a serious injury.
As our client approached the business by foot, she was aware of the conditions and walked slowly, looking straight ahead. On Dartmouth Avenue in Providence, she suddenly slipped and fell due to icy conditions on a sidewalk located near the business owner.
Immediately feeling pain from her fall, our client went to The Miriam Hospital, where she was diagnosed with a patella (kneecap) fracture and was referred to an orthopedic surgeon. Due to the loose fragments and ligament damage from her fracture, our client had to undergo knee surgery.
After her successful surgery, our client began physical therapy treatment to gain the strength back in her knee and recover from her severe personal injuries.

Our client heard about our firm from a trusted friend and called us. The case immediately presented challenges that required resources and investigation. What evidence of the ice did we have? Were there witnesses? Who is responsible for maintaining the sidewalk area?
At Bottaro Law, my lawyers, and our entire team take pride in helping the injured. In our legal research, we discovered that under local law, the business owner was responsible for keeping the sidewalk free from unreasonably dangerous conditions such as snow and ice. We also relied on various premises liability law and put together the damages portion of the case pursuant to Rhode Island law which of course permits compensation to those who have experienced suffered pain and suffering. (I. Civ. Pattern Jury Instruction 10002.5 Bodily Injury and Impairment.)
Our team of investigators discovered a witness who had actually taken some helpful photographs of the ice and our client immediately after the fall!
Through diligence and hard work, Bottaro Law put together a strong case against the careless business owner. In a relatively fast manner, we were able to negotiate a $100,000.00 settlement with the insurance company that gave our client immediate access to the funds she desperately needed.
