Robert I. Feinberg has the highest personal injury verdict in Massachusetts over a five year period and he has the highest personal injury settlement in Massachusetts in the last year. In a landmark victory, a Massachusetts Superior Court jury awarded Mr. 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.
