In a landmark victory, a Massachusetts Superior Court jury awarded Robert Feinberg’s client $7.7 million including interest as a result of a boiler explosion, the highest injury verdict in Massachusetts over a five year period, excluding medical malpractice. The victory for the industrial worker was achieved despite years of claims that he was at fault for his accident and thereby entitled to nothing.

As reported in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly in 2019, Mr. Feinberg resolved a construction site accident for $5.35 million dollars. The young construction worker had suffered very serious leg injuries. The defendant, the general contractor, argued that the responsibility for this roofing accident was that of the plaintiff’s employer and not the general contractor. The case successfully resolved after numerous depositions. Mr. Feinberg hired 11 experts, 3 on construction site safety and management, and 8 on damages.

Also, as reported in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly in 2019, Mr. Feinberg along with Colleen Santora tried a pedestrian/motor vehicle accident in which their client suffered a severe calcaneous fracture. The jury returned a verdict of $1.1 million dollars, far in excess of the insurance company’s offer.

A lawyer you can count on
Life is hard. It can get infinitely more difficult when the unexpected happens, leaving you with life changing injuries and an uncertain medical outcome. I had the unfortunate experience of being rear ended by a Mack Truck, out of nowhere, leaving me with a severely torn labrum which required surgery, a bulging disc in my upper spine, among other injuries. I was scared, having a very difficult time healing, and more importantly unable to have the presence in my family life that I had before the accident. I was devastated. My family convinced me to seek legal counsel. I had never used a lawyer before, and had some reservations about the idea. After a bit of research, and several conversations with potential representation I found Attorney Feinberg. I cannot say enough about the experience I had with Robert Feinberg, he was incredible. From the first meeting he approached the situation with care, a deep understanding of our legal system as it relates to injury claims, and a constructive outlook. He was organized, thorough, and professional. I was in good hands. Not only is Attorney Feinberg a seasoned lawyer that expertly handled my case, but he genuinely cared about me, as a person. He took the time to talk me through anything I felt the need to talk about, even if it meant purely giving me an outlet to vent. He set up a number of experts in their field that attested to how my medical condition affected my quality of life. Even after a final settlement was reached, Attorney Feinberg and his team continued to work for me by negotiating the medical liens against my claim. The end result was a significantly reduced lien, which further helped my family in this time of need. He was available to speak with me at just about any time, and when he wasn’t available he would call back that day, usually within just a few hours. Robert Feinberg took the time to understand my history, knows about my family, and even a year removed from the final settlement still takes the time to check in and see how I am doing. I can’t truly express how grateful I am to Robert and his team for the help they gave me and my family in an incredibly emotional and stressful time in my life. We were able to attain a very favorable settlement, well above the average for plaintiffs with similar injuries. And while the settlement helps in offering some resolution considering all the circumstances, I cannot stress how much his guidance, skill, and personal touch helped my wife and I get through this. If you want someone that not only understands this process in great detail, but someone you can count on to give you individualized attention, someone that you can really depend on, please give Attorney Feinberg your consideration. My wife and I are very glad we did, and wouldn’t change a thing.

I highly recommend Feinberg and Alban personal injury firm...wonderful people and representation
Attorney Robert Feinberg along with Attorney Alexis Cahill of Feinberg and Alban handled my personal injury case in which I was seriously injured through no fault of my own. They were compassionate, caring, hard working, and dedicated the entire way through and are overall wonderful people. Also, the moral support I received from them was outstanding and unparalled...especially during the early phases of my acute injuries which required subsequent major surgeries and the extensive rehabilitation and recovery periods that followed up until the very end. I can't thank them enough. I highly recommend Feinberg and Alban.

Our case is closed and I'm going to miss him !
Robert is a great person as well as an amazing lawyer. He responded to my inquiry through his website immediately. He came out to our home to make our meetings easier for our family. He took all the time we needed, to answer all of our questions. He always returned phone calls, texts, e-mails (whatever worked for us). He was always happy to talk to one, or all of us (he represented our young , adult son) . He ALWAYS kept us informed and prepared for any upcoming events or expectations. I just can't find the one word to sum up our experience but, I would choose him all over again.

Endorse Robert

"I endorse Robert . He is a highly skilled attorney that is well respected in the legal community."
Personal injury Attorney | Aug 15
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"It is a great honor for me to endorse Robert and his firm. I have known him for over a decade, since I worked for his firm as a law clerk while in law school. If I were to describe the underlying mechanism driving Robert’s client representation, I would use the following words: integrity, compassion, polished legal skills and a suave manner of handling cases. Robert has one of those unique personalities that is aligned beautifully with what he is destined to do: he is an intellectual powerhouse, a skillful fighter and, simply put, a rare legal talent. He carries on a beautiful legal legacy and it shows. His recent multi-million settlement that made news on many levels is one more illustration of his success and that of his firm’s ability to obtain the best possible results for its clients."
