Steinger, Greene & Feiner Wins $1.37 Million for Client Who Suffered Neck Injury In Car Accident

Steinger, Greene & Feiner firm partner Neil Anthony and attorney Concetta Camacho are a powerhouse injury attorney team like no other. Their hard work and determination for a case that began in 2016 has resulted in a positive outcome for a client who was told her “pain was subjective and that nothing was preventing her from returning to work” even after many surgeries.

Neil Anthony and Concetta Camacho refused to accept this judgment, and they set out to ensure that their client got every, single, penny for her very objective pain.

In a recent West Palm Beach personal injury case, a Steinger, Greene & Feiner client was awarded $1,371,000 for injuries sustained from a car accident that left her with neck injuries.

On Feb. 27, 2016, our client: Lisa Collins, 55, a nurse, was driving an SUV eastbound on Jones Loop Road, near its intersection with Taylor Road in Punta Gorda. Gloria Anderson was driving westbound, approaching the same intersection.

Ms. Anderson attempted to turn left onto Taylor Road. Her vehicle struck the side of Ms. Collin’s client’s SUV.

Ms. Collins only contacted Steinger, Greene & Feiner a few days after the accident when she began to feel pain and discomfort in her neck. Like many of our clients, Ms. Collins only felt the effects of the accident a few days later after the adrenaline, inflammation, and swelling began to subside.

This is common. We always advise clients to call when they begin to experience pain. The sooner the better but never dismiss the pain. Ms. Collins did the right thing and called us.

She claimed injuries to her neck and contact us to sued Ms. Anderson. She claimed that Ms. Anderson was negligent in the operation of her vehicle.

Ms. Collins was diagnosed with herniations of her C4-5, C5-6- and C6-7 intervertebral discs and required two anterior cervical discectomies and fusions, she also underwent physical therapy before and after each of these procedures and received an occipital nerve block injection in October 2018.

But the defense maintained that all she deserved was a check for the damage to her car and nothing else… When we heard this, we sprang into action to fight for our client. A check for damages to her car and nothing else is just not good enough. Ms. Collins has suffered.

Thanks to the hard work by Neil Anthony and Concetta Camacho and their team, a jury awarded Lisa Collins $1,371,000 for past and future medical expenses, past and future lost earnings, and damages for her past and future pain and suffering.

Steinger, Greene & Feiner asked the jury to award her that amount, and that was their verdict.

Our attorneys are never scared to take a personal injury case as far as it needs to go, especially if it means getting a client every penny they deserve. Read more of our personal injury and car accident case results here.
