What Makes Him Different

Steven Snow is an expert litigation attorney.

Finding the right lawyer can make an exponential difference in a case outcome. Personal injury attorneys handle cases that involve motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle and bicycle accidents as well as bus incidents, construction site injuries, dog bites, wrongful deaths and just about any other personal mishap or fatality.

Litigation Attorney vs. Transaction Attorney

Many injury lawyers are not skilled in the courtroom.  These attorneys are considered transaction attorneys. On the contrary, the few that are courtroom lawyers are referred to as litigators or litigation lawyers. Steven Snow is an expert litigation attorney. He has skillfully performed for over 25 years in both state and federal courts for plaintiffs and defendants.

“I want it all, or a trial. Pay me and I’ll go away.”  ~ Attorney Snow

Preparing for trial and working with judges and juries can directly, drastically and positively affect case results. All cases and situations are unique. Not every circumstance will require litigation to ensure a just and fair outcome but, finding the right lawyer for the specific situation is still key.

A recent case involving a construction site accident demonstrates how Attorney Steve Snow, a litigator with experience on both sides of the bench strategically approaches a case that resulted in exponential awards to the tune of $650,000. A case like this that didn’t go to trial would have likely generated only a third of this settlement.

Construction Site Injury:

Cape Cod Construction Worker Wins $650K for Hand Injury

A HIGH 5, FOR A HIGH 6:

An independent construction worker hired by a sub-contractor for the general contractor was injured on an unsafe construction site due to faulty equipment. A situation that could easily have been prevented if the general or sub-contractor simply would’ve installed the required safety netting.

As in all injury cases, there are two issues that must be proven, liability and damages.

Step 1: Proving Liability.

In Massachusetts, there’s a decades-old statute that holds contractors responsible for specific construction zone safety regulations. Digging deep to find this statute ensured that Attorney Snow could prove liability, that the general contractor  had faulty equipment.

Step 2: Proving damages.

Snow hired three experts to capitalize on damages – in this case,  lost wages:

  1. An accountant to file the last 5 years tax returns that demonstrated lost income
  2. A vocational expert to identify how much he could have earned over the course of his working life
  3. An expert to identify residual capacity (i.e. He can’t use his right arm to lift more than 10lbs. What jobs would be available to him with those restrictions, at his age and education and what he can earn. This is how much money he’ll lose over the course of his lifetime)

Strategy: Identify the weaknesses in the case and fill all gaps.

Uniquely, Attorney Snow  has experience representing insurance companies and because of this he knew what the insurance company was going to look at when they valued the case. Diligent preparation and savvy legal technique navigated his client’s case to achieve this extraordinary six-figure outcome (and what would typically be unexpected in such a case by a non-litigator).
