Types of Personal Injury Cases

Car Accidents

Car accidents can cause severe, even permanent injuries. Your case may be worth much more than the insurance company offers, so you should speak with an attorney to get the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Most motorcycle accidents result from the careless behavior of other drivers. They can also be caused by poor road conditions like potholes. No matter the cause of your accident, we will identify who was responsible for your injuries.

Truck Accidents

The injuries from truck accidents are often extremely severe, and truck accident claims are more complex than other auto accidents. In addition to negotiating with insurance companies, you have to deal with the trucking company. We can reveal the negligent actions of the trucking company or truck driver that led to the accident and secure the damages you need to recover.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are hit by vehicles every day, and many suffer from hit-and-run accidents. Our lawyers will thoroughly investigate to identify the driver who caused your injuries and hold them responsible.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists are vulnerable to accidents caused by reckless drivers, unsafe road conditions, and other dangers. If you were involved in a bicycle accident that wasn’t your fault, we’ll find out who or what was responsible and hold them to account.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur just about anywhere, from icy sidewalks and uneven stairs to slippery floors in restaurants. Although these accidents might seem minor, they can lead to serious head or back injuries. Depending on the specifics of your case, we will identify the conditions that led to the accident and the party responsible for them.

Workers’ Compensation

Workplace accidents often occur in dangerous work settings like construction sites or manufacturing plants, but they can happen in quiet settings like offices, too. Our lawyers know how Massachusetts workers’ compensation laws can affect your claim, and we’ll fight to get the compensation you need and deserve.

Wrongful Death

If someone is killed in a fatal accident because of the negligence of another party, their family is entitled to financial compensation. Such losses are recognized as “wrongful deaths” in Massachusetts.

Additional Cases We Handle

The Process of a Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury cases can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. If you have a complicated case with a lot of evidence to investigate, reaching a settlement agreement can be difficult. If it’s not possible to reach a mutually agreeable settlement, the case will have to go to trial. 

A settlement agreement is when the parties involved in an accident agree to handle the matter outside of court. In a settlement, the defendant pays the plaintiff, or victim, for their damages, and the plaintiff drops the case. However, the amount paid by the defendant is usually less than the plaintiff asked for. Once a plaintiff drops their case, they are legally barred from filing a lawsuit again to obtain more compensation.

In some settlements, the plaintiff may give up their right to file a lawsuit at all. Settlement negotiations take time, but if you have a strong case supported by solid evidence, the defendant may be more willing to reach a fair settlement. This is because even if they pay you a generous amount, they are saving money by avoiding an expensive trial.

Settlement agreements typically involve insurance companies. If you’re injured in a car accident, you’ll be dealing with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Insurance companies protect their interests by not telling you that you could be entitled to additional damages beyond what they pay. They often make low settlement offers or refuse to pay at all. If this happens, you may need to file a lawsuit to get the full amount of damages you deserve. 

Hiring an experienced personal injury is the best way to maximize your compensation in settlement agreement negotiations or court. A lawyer can place a fair value on all the losses you have suffered and collect evidence to build a strong case and secure as much compensation as possible.

What To Look for in a Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury laws differ by state, and your lawyer needs to be familiar with the Massachusetts laws that affect your case, whether they’re traffic laws, statutes of limitations, insurance regulations, or workers’ compensation laws.

Consistent Communication

Being involved in an accident is stressful enough. You shouldn’t have to worry about legal deadlines, filing insurance paperwork, or paying medical bills. Our lawyers will handle every aspect of your case, and we’ll make sure you get the medical care you need. We’ll also keep you informed on the status of your case, and we’re always available to address any questions or concerns. 

Case Results

Of course, your lawyer needs to have a track record of winning cases and securing maximum compensation. Previous clients should also report complete satisfaction with their services. We’ve handled countless personal injury cases in many legal areas, providing 5-star services and returning millions to our clients.

No Win No Fee Arrangement

A no-win-no-fee, or contingency fee, basis protects your interests and encourages your lawyer to work as hard as possible to recover a full and fair amount of compensation. We operate on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay us until we win your case.

How to Maximize Your Compensation

Accident victims, or plaintiffs, are compensated either when a fair settlement is reached or when a jury rules that they are entitled to a monetary award. The actual amount depends on the severity of the victim’s injuries, the cost of their medical bills, and the cost of their past and future lost wages. 

To maximize your compensation, keep a record of all expenses related to your accident. If you have to take time off work or even leave your job completely to recover from your accident, keep track of your lost wages. If you are ultimately unable to return to work because of your injuries, you can claim future lost wages as part of your damages. 

You should be able to recover compensation for every single expense that is related to your accident. Damages can be categorized as economic or non-economic. Economic damages can be easily quantified in monetary terms, like medical bills and lost wages. Non-economic damages are intangible and more difficult to assign value to, like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. A Boston personal injury lawyer can inform you of all the damages that may be available to you and estimate a fair value for all your losses.

Common Questions About Personal Injury Claims

How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Massachusetts?

In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations to file a claim for any personal injury claim is three years. This means you must bring your case to court within three years from the date of your accident in order to receive compensation. 

Do I Need to Hire a Boston Personal Injury Lawyer for My Claim?

You are not required to hire a personal injury lawyer for your claim, but doing so can help you obtain the most successful outcome and the highest compensation in your case. Experienced personal injury lawyers can maximize the value of your claim and handle every step of the legal process so you don’t have to worry about it. Representing yourself may result in a lost case, reduced compensation, increased stress, and lengthy litigation. 

How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Take To Settle?

Personal injury cases vary greatly in the amount of time they take to settle. Some may settle within a few months, while others can take a few years to close. The timeline depends on the amount of evidence, the number of parties involved in the accident, whether you have a lawyer and other factors. Once a settlement is reached, a check will be sent to your attorney and usually arrive in 7 to 14 days.

How Does the Contingency Fee Structure Work?

Many personal injury lawyers, including the ones at Steinger, Greene & Feiner, work on a contingency fee basis. We only get paid for our services when we win your case and you receive compensation, so hiring us should cost you nothing. Personal injury lawyers often take a percentage of your compensation, but you can receive additional compensation for attorney and legal fees. In most cases, the at-fault parties are responsible for paying for legal services during your personal injury claim.

What Can I Expect in Terms of Compensation?

You should recover compensation for all your losses and damages related to your injuries, including economic and non-economic damages. There may be limitations to what you can recover because the at-fault parties may have caps on their insurance coverage. If this applies to your case, you can take additional legal action to receive further compensation. There may also be caps or upper limits on how much compensation you can receive for certain losses, like lost wages or pain and suffering.
