Personal Injury

Boston personal injury lawyer, Joel H. Schwartz, P.C. is one of the most widely known and respected names in personal injury law today. There are a number of reasons for this. Foremost among them is the firm's long and enviable record of performance.  The firm has been helping accident victims for over 49 years and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for its clients over that time. Today, Joel H. Schwartz, P.C. is comprised of more than thirty focused professionals who are committed to providing clients and referring attorneys alike with a level of service that invites comparison and is now one of the largest personal injury firms in all of New England. With our knowledge and unwavering commitment to our clients, our firm produces consistent and impressive results.  With an enviable record of precedent-setting wins, our firm is recognized not just for leadership, but for visionary groundbreaking as well. From years of firsthand experience while maintaining a steadfast commitment to ensure the rights of accident victims, we've learned how to anticipate and respond to change. We've also become known for envisioning what could be and having the resolve and resources to achieve it.  We handle auto accidents, slip and falls, workers compensation, wrongful death, dog bites, nursing home abuse, medical malpractice, defective products, social security disability claims (SSI and SSDI), construction site accidents, sexual harassment in the workplace, brain damage cases, and all other personal injuries.

With personal injury claims, experience makes all the difference.  We deal with these insurance companies on a daily basis, and the relationships we have established with them truly makes a difference in the offers made.  All lawyers are NOT the same.  We have successfully handled over 30,000 claims in our history – everything from small little fender bender cases to multi-million dollar brain injury cases, and everything in between.  Our website has dozens of testimonials of satisfied clients as well as attorneys who have referred personal injury matters to us.  We conduct seminars regularly to other attorneys in the field of personal injury law for the Massachusetts Bar Association, various law schools, and other continuing education courses.  Our record truly does speak for itself.

Just as important as the monetary outcome, however, is the process.  From start to finish, the philosophy is to treat each client as if they are the only one in the office.  You will be regularly updated on your case so you always know what is going on, and we are always available to answer any questions that you have.  Our goal is to have you focus on your recovery while we do everything else for you – all the paperwork, phone calls, investigation, making sure your medical bills and any lost wages are paid, etc.  We pride ourselves with the client service we provide.

We would love the opportunity to show you what our firm can do and why we stand out from the other law firms that claim to be experts in this field.  We refer you to our website – www.joelhschwartz.com – to review our past successes, read dozens of testimonials from happy clients and referring attorneys, and see our firm regularly written up in Lawyers Weekly Newspaper.

Please contact us if you need an experienced Boston personal injury lawyer who understands the issues accident victims face.  As always, the consultation is free.  Call now 800-660-2270

The consultation is always free.  Our office works on a contingency fee basis which means we ONLY get paid if we obtain a settlement that is acceptable to you (you are the boss!).  Our fee is a percentage of the gross amount received, and we take our fees only from the insurance proceeds that come at the end of your case.  In other words, you never have to reach into your pocket and pay us anything - we take all the risk.

Can I Prevent Alzheimer's?
