Who Do Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers Represent?
Neinstein has a reputation not only for providing quality legal services, but also for understanding and compassion toward their clients. Their decades of experience have provided Neinstein & Associates’ personal injury lawyers with unique insights into the mental and emotional toll that a serious personal injury can have on both the victim and their families. Neinstein’s expertise extends to a variety of aspects of personal injury law. This breadth of legal ability allows Neinstein personal injury lawyers to represent a range of victims suffering from various injuries. Some of their areas of expertise follow below.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident of any kind – as the driver of a car or motorcycle, as a pedestrian, or as a cyclist – Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers can help you access the compensation you may be entitled to. Motor vehicle accidents are behind a great number of personal injury lawsuits. Whether caused by impairment, distraction, speed, fatigue, weather, or any other cause, traffic fatalities have been a leading cause of death in North America for decades. While not every motor vehicle accident will result in the basis for a personal injury claim, in some cases you may be entitled to compensation. A free, no-obligation consultation with one of Neinstein & Associates’ personal injury lawyers can help you decide whether to pursue compensation for your injuries.
In Canada, medical malpractice lawsuits are notoriously difficult to litigate. Canadian doctors are defended by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), a powerful and well-funded organization with access to leading defence lawyers and medical experts. The CMPA has a reputation for being extremely combative in court as a method of dissuading injured patients from pursuing legal action. For this reason, a good medical malpractice lawyer must be exceptionally knowledgeable on both the legal and medical sides of these claims. They must have access to qualified medical experts willing to testify on your behalf, as well.
Neinstein’s Medical Malpractice Group is led by Duncan Embury, one of Canada’s leading personal injury lawyers and a specialist in medical malpractice law. With over 20 years of experience, he has been recommended not just by former clients, but also by leading Canadian legal publications.
Medical malpractice can take many forms, and may be difficult for patients to recognize. Examples of medical malpractice include: birthing injuries (including hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, brachial plexus, and perinatal stroke); acquired brain injury (including ishemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, carotid dissection, brain abscess, pseudo-tumor cerebri, hydrocephalus, and carotid stenosis); tPA administration; atrial fibrillation; surgical negligence (including anastomotic leak, bowel obstruction, injuries to major blood vessels, injuries to surrounding organs, laparoscopic surgery, whipple resection, shunt complications, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, colectomy, anaesthesiology, and failure to monitor); cardiac arrest; sepsis; hypoxic brain injuries; breast, colon, lung, or prostate cancer; failure to monitor, either pre-operatively, perioperatively, or post-operatively; medication errors; and nursing errors.
Just by reading this list of medical malpractice cases alone, it’s easy to understand the importance of a specialized medical malpractice lawyer. If you’re unsure whether you have the basis for a claim, your best bet is to call the medical malpractice lawyers at Neinstein and Associates. They can provide you with the guidance and understanding necessary in your time of need.
Slip and Fall
While a slip and fall might seem like an unusual time to incur a serious injury, it is another common source of personal injury lawsuits. While most young people will be able to navigate the icy Canadian winters with nothing worse than the occasional blemish, slippery winter roads can be exceptionally treacherous for elderly or disabled people.
However, winter weather isn’t the only cause of a slip and fall. If you slip on a wet patch in the hallways of your workplace, or a spot of grease in a kitchen or restaurant you’re visiting, or even by stepping in a puddle during a rainy day, you may be entitled to compensation. A head injury, regardless of how it is sustained, can lead to serious, lasting health problems. Even worse, repeated head injuries can increase your chances of suffering from dementia later in life.
The loss of a family member or close friend can be devastating, regardless of the circumstances. When the death may have been preventable, the pain can be even worse. While no dollar figure can replace a cherished loved one, wrongful death litigation may help you cover certain costs associated with your loss, including funeral costs, grief counselling, and the loss of financial support that loved one may have provided.
As we touched on briefly in the slip and fall section, brain injuries are among the most serious types of injury a person can sustain. If you have suffered from a serious head injury which has left you unconscious for a long period of time, the effects on your health can be permanent. But even in cases where you do not necessarily lose consciousness, such as a concussion, you may experience residual effects.
Both the National Football League (NFL) and National Hockey League (NHL) are currently dealing with the long term affects the violent nature of their sports has had on retired participants. The NFL is dealing with a high-value lawsuit from former players, while the NHL has lost numerous alumni to depression, substance abuse, and suicide, all potentially resulting from the repeated blows to the head they incurred as players.
If you or a member of your family has been adversely affected by a head or brain injury, the personal injury lawyers at Neinstein and Associates can help you get the compensation you need to facilitate your recovery. Rehabilitation, counselling, and other medical expenses can be costly, but are necessary to your healthy recovery. At Neinstein, we can help you cover your medical costs and get back to being yourself.
Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers Testimonials and Reviews
At Neinstein & Associates, we are proud to have represented numerous clients who are willing to speak out about the quality of our services. You can find a few in the video testimonials below:
Several years ago, Jeff was involved in a serious ATV accident.
“I had an ATV accident,” he says. “I was going up a hill. It was a bit steep, and I ended up rolling the ATV – it rolled backwards and I fell off and the ATV was gonna hit me. I didn’t have time to move, so I put my feet up in the air to protect my body, and it came down and basically snapped me in half. Broke my back.”
Jeff, naturally, was terrified. He speaks about giving up when he thought about being unable to continue with the pursuits he was used to doing. Luckily, he heard about a Greg Neinstein through one of his wife’s coworkers. He says Greg promised to take care of him while he focused on getting stronger and getting back on his feet. Today, he considers Greg a personal friend.
“I think it’s a great firm,” Jeff continues. “The team he assembled was an incredible team. The physiotherapist, the occupational therapist – the whole thing was good. I’ve never had any issues with anybody at Neinstein. It was a great experience actually. My family thanks you, my kids. You’ve taken the worst moment of my life and made it a little bit easier to deal with.”
Serge, a lawyer himself, was involved in a motor vehicle crash that left him with a fractured scapula, a brain injury, and no memory of his accident. Knowing the specialized expertise necessary in successfully litigating personal injury cases, Serge turned to Jeff Neinstein, and says the firm exceeded even his lofty professional expectations:
“What I do have a memory of is Jeff and his team helping me recover every step of the way,” Serge says. “Without specialized knowledge of personal injury law, cannot handle the case on my own. I needed an experienced professional to help me handle my case. As a lawyer, naturally I have high expectations of another lawyer. Jeff not only met my expectations, but he exceeded them every step of the way. I’m feeling great thanks to Jeff and his team.”
