Just Compensation for an Injured Repairman

When a forty-six year old Massachusetts boiler repairman received a phone call from a condominium complex to repair a boiler unit, he had no idea that his life was about to change. The boiler unit exploded, and the repairman was terribly scalded on more than fifty percent of his body.

His life would never be the same again. The immediate pain was unbearable. However, the emotional trauma he and his family would have to endure was only just beginning. Even after several painful and complicated surgeries, the repairman and Boston resident suffered emotional distress so severe doctors described it as being post-traumatic stress disorder.

The insurance company for the condominium complex said they were not responsible, so he sought an attorney. The company eventually offered the repairman $200,000.  Fortunately, the repairman consulted attorney Robert I. Feinberg before accepting such a meager settlement.

Robert I. Feinberg zealously fought for his client. He obtained substantial evidence and helped secure a $7.7 million dollar settlement for his client. This was one of the largest personal injury settlements obtained in 2011.

Most injury cases are settled out of court. However, after consulting with his client, Robert I. Feinberg realized the only way to obtain just compensation was to take the case to trial, where a jury could weigh in.

Steadfast and determined, Robert I. Feinberg knew his client deserved proper reimbursement for the injuries he sustained. He stood by his client the entire time, and fought for his rights. As a result, the repairman now has the financial resources to focus on healing.
