Steven Snow

What Makes The Snow Law Firm Different

Attorney Snow focuses on understanding you and your situation.  He spends the time to thoroughly review your case and will devote the financial resources – both man hours and money – necessary to properly litigate your injury claim.

You need a lawyer who knows the challenges ahead of you, is willing to go the extra mile, and will successfully deliver results when it matters most to you.

Because of his prior experience representing people injured in car crashes, Attorney Snow has developed working relationships with:

  • Trauma surgeons
  • Orthopedic physicians
  • Neurosurgeons
  • Pain management specialists
  • Other medical practitioners

These providers generate expert medical disclosures and render trial testimony necessary to secure meaningful settlements, awards and jury verdicts.  

At trial, Attorney Snow regularly submits into evidence physician narrative reports which cite to:

  • The American Medical Association Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Life Expectancy Tables

These recognized publications demonstrate the nature and extent of your injuries, and how long you will be forced to endure the effects of any injury, permanent partial disability, or permanency of injury.  Introducing this information into evidence enables jurors to determine the proper award of damages to which you are entitled to receive.     

The Snow Law Firm has over 30 years of experience handling car crash claims and a proven history of achieving lucrative results for clients.  Unlike insurance companies that view your case as simply one of many claims, we realize that the outcome of your case has a direct impact on your financial livelihood.  Successfully representing you, is our only concern and we are committed to doing just that.

Attorney Snow was a member of the legal team that obtained the largest personal injury award in the history of Barnstable County – a multimillion-dollar jury verdict – and has since obtained many other high-value settlements on behalf of clients just like you. 

Motor Vehicle Accident Statistics and Common Causes

Although motor vehicle accidents and their resulting injuries and/or death are preventable, between 2018 and 2021, an average of 125,000 motor vehicle crashes occurred in Massachusetts. In 2018 alone, nearly 400 people in Massachusetts were killed in motor vehicle crashes according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Every day, most of us get into our cars and give little thought to the possibility of being involved in a serious motor vehicle accident.  Car crashes occur on Massachusetts roadways for a variety of reasons including:

  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Using vehicle technology while driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Speeding
  • Failing to stop in time
  • Failing to obey traffic lights and signs
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Older drivers who have poor vision

Representation When You Need It Most

Attorney Snow has a well-deserved reputation for negotiating with insurance companies to secure meaningful settlements. Because he is willing to take your case to trial to maximize your award of compensatory damages, insurance companies extend fair and reasonable settlement offers. In fact, before opening his own practice, Attorney Snow worked for a Boston law firm that represented insurance companies in all types of motor vehicle accident cases.  Since he has represented the responsible parties in the past, he is aware of the tactics employed by insurers and anticipates strategies designed to minimize claim payouts to injured people.  

To increase your settlement, Attorney Snow regularly engages liability, medical, vocational, and economic experts to prove all aspects of your case. The goal at trial is to demonstrate, beyond a preponderance of evidence, exactly how the collision occurred, the extent of your injuries, how these injuries impact your everyday life and the level of damages which you are entitled to receive.

Attorney Snow is experienced in handling complex injury claims resulting from car crashes including:

  • Broken bones – including fractures of the pelvis, femur, femoral neck, tibia, humerus, ulna, distal radius and ribs
  • Upper extremity  injuries – including rotator cuff tears and shoulder injuries
  • Head injuries – including traumatic brain injuries, skull fractures, concussions, and post-concussion syndrome
  • Neck and back injuries – including whiplash, sprains and strains, herniated discs, compression fractures, spinal cord impingement and paralysis
  • Injuries which cause permanent and/or partial disability 
  • Wrongful death

A car accident on Cape Cod is a traumatic experience which can result in medical expenses for emergency room visits, surgery, pain management, follow up doctor appointments, and occupational and physical therapy. Car crashes also result in physical pain, mental suffering, and emotional anguish. 

In addition, seemingly minor accidents can result in severe injuries although that might not be discovered immediately. 

The Snow Law Firm accepts car accident claims from all types including:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear-end pileups
  • Rollover accidents
  • Intersection crashes
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Failure to yield collisions
  • Drunk driving crashes
  • Distracted driving accidents
  • Texting accidents
  • Teen accidents
  • Uninsured collisions
  • Underinsured crashes

We Help With Your Car Accident Claim

The Snow Law Firm will help you file a car crash injury claim against the people or entities responsible for causing your injuries. The at fault party is put on notice of your intent to pursue an injury claim against them and to disclose the amount of the defendant’s insurance policy. Once the disclosures are received, and your medical bills and records are assembled, a lawsuit is filed against the responsible parties.

To bring a claim arising from a motor vehicle accident, Massachusetts law requires each person injured in a car accident to incur at least $2,000 in medical expenses or otherwise meet the “tort threshold,” including operators, passengers, and pedestrians. 

If you are involved in a car accident, you will need to obtain an Application for Benefits – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) from your insurance company.  In Massachusetts, all automobile insurance policies must have PIP benefits coverage. These cover you and any passenger in your car for medical expenses, lost wages, and prescription reimbursements up to $8,000. To receive these benefits, 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, your automobile insurance company will pay the first $2,000 in medical expenses, and thereafter, your medical bills must be submitted to your private insurance carrier. Co-payment charges can be submitted to your insurer for reimbursement under PIP.  Some drivers have also purchased optional coverage known as medical payments, which is purchased in $5,000 increments and can be used to pay medical bills after PIP benefits have been exhausted. 

Once we complete the PIP application on your behalf and send it to your auto insurance company, we can help with the following:

  • Making sure that your medical bills get paid
  • Making sure that you receive reimbursement for lost wages
  • Assist you with any property damage claim
  • Assist you with rental car reimbursement

In addition, we will:

  • Obtain the police report
  • Request your medical bills and records
  • Identify potential defendants
  • Investigate the circumstances related to your accident and photograph the crash scene
  • Engage liability, medical and vocational experts
  • Evaluate your claim for damages
  • Negotiate a successful resolution of your claim or take your case to trial

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may also possess a claim for uninsured or underinsured motorist benefits. In this instance, your own auto insurance policy will provide coverage to you.

Call Attorney Snow if you have been involved in an accident where the responsible party does not have insurance or has low insurance policy limits. He will explain your options and will pursue a claim against your own insurance company.

No Fee Unless We Successfully Resolve Your Case

Attorney Snow takes car accident cases on a contingency-fee basis. This means he does not receive a fee unless he successfully secures a settlement, award, or jury verdict on your behalf.  You will not have to pay any upfront costs and will not be charged for out-of-pocket expenses until your case is resolved.
