Sustaining an injury in a car accident is painful and may, quite possibly, leave you in pain for years to come. Being injured in an automobile accident that wasn’t your fault can also leave you feeling helpless and frustrated. When you consider that insurance companies have teams of people and legal firms dedicated to ensuring their company spends the least amount of money possible, it only makes sense to engage a Cape Cod car accident lawyer whose sole job is making certain that you and your family obtain the maximum amount of compensation available, either with a settlement or at trial.
Attorney Steven Snow focuses his Cape Cod law practice on helping those who need it most; victims of serious injuries suffered in car accidents.
At the Law Offices of Steven T. Snow, we have more than 25 years of experience and a proven history of achieving the very best outcome for our clients. This isn’t merely a numbers game as so many insurance companies view the outcome of an accident. It’s the future of you and your family. Attaining the very highest level of compensation for our clients is our only concern, and we’re the best throughout Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts at securing it.
An unrivaled level of technical expertise paired with a willingness to invest the resources – of both time and finances – needed to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients.
Automobile injury cases require not only a vast understanding of the law, but also medicine, economics, and forensic accounting and statistical analysis. Because he has so much experience in representing car accident victims, Attorney Snow has acquired an inherent ability to understand medical records. He has also worked extensively with orthopedic physicians, neurosurgeons and other medical practitioners in obtaining expert medical disclosures and trial testimony.
Attorney Steven Snow is adept at handling the most complex personal injury cases, including:
While some lawyers may view resolving a car accident injury case much as an insurance would – something to be done quickly and with minimal investment – Attorney Snow has a decade-long reputation for recognizing when a trial is needed to achieve a greater financial award and fighting for his clients in court. He was a member of the legal team that obtained the largest personal injury award in the history of Barnstable County – a multi-million-dollar jury verdict – and has attained high-value jury awards for many of his own clients as well.
At trial, Steven Snow often refers to the American Medical Association Guide to demonstrate to juries the extent of his client’s injuries. He’ll then introduce the U.S. Health and Human Services Life Expectancy Tables into evidence and have experts testify on how long you will be living with any partial or permanent impairment. These figures help juries determine the amount of compensation to which you’re entitled.
Trying to understand how much compensation you’re entitled to from your insurance company – or the company of an at-fault driver in another car – after an accident can be confusing. We will help you make sense of it all.
When people are injured in car accidents, medical coverage is naturally a primary concern. In Massachusetts, all automobile insurance policies must have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits coverage. These benefits provide coverage to you and any passenger in your car for medical expenses, lost wages, and prescription reimbursements up to $8,000. To receive this benefit, you must file an Application for Benefits – Personal Injury Protection with your auto insurance provider. If you are covered under a private health insurance policy, PIP pays the first $2,000 in medical expenses, and the rest must be submitted to your private insurance carrier. Some drivers also have optional medical payments coverage, which is purchased in $5,000 increments.
Serious injuries often require far more expensive medical care than PIP benefits cover. Our Cape Cod law firm helps clients file personal injury claims against the people who are responsible for their injuries. To bring these claims, Massachusetts requires victims to incur at least $2,000 in medical expenses or otherwise meet the “tort threshold.”
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may also have a claim for uninsured or underinsured motorist benefits.
Because many people are unfamiliar with the specifics of how insurance policies work, we provide this guide to help you better understand your automobile insurance policy. We also include forms you can use when dealing with your insurance provider before and after an accident.
Attorney Snow has a boundless reputation for negotiating with insurance companies to secure settlements. He is not afraid to take your case to trial to maximize your compensation. He demands the maximum and gets it because the insurance companies have learned to take him seriously.
Before opening his own practice, Attorney Steven Snow worked for a Boston law firm that represented insurance companies in cases involving their own customers. He can anticipate the strategies that insurance companies will rely on at trial. The critically unique factor is that Attorney Snow also consults with liability, medical, vocational and economic experts to counter their arguments. His goal at trial is to prove to the jury how the accident occurred, the scope of your injuries and the level of damages to which you’re entitled.
Attorney Snow has helped hundreds of car accident victims get the compensation they needed to move forward with their lives. He stands ready to help you!
It’s understandable when most clients cannot afford to pay an attorney up front. For this reason, Attorney Snow takes car accident claims and all personal injury cases on a contingency-fee basis which means he does not receive a fee unless he successfully secures a settlement, award or jury verdict on your behalf.
