Personal injury law is our specialty

Schwartz has earned a reputation for helping injury victims get the financial awards they deserve. Insurance company lawyers will fight hard to reduce your losses – and will take the longest amount of time possible to get you your funds. We will fight harder to make sure you get everything that is owed to you in a timely manner.
We take care of everything for you
From the very first phone call or consultation, you’ll see that with Joel H. Schwartz, it’s about so much more than the settlement – it’s about helping you get your life back. We will give you all the time you need. We will answer all your questions. We will explain the law to you. We will ask you meaningful questions in order to get the information we need to evaluate your claim, and if you have a claim, represent you and pursue your case with ferocity. Here are some of the things we can do for you:
- Help facilitate your medical care
- Advise you on your legal rights and responsibilities
- Handle all calls, paperwork and negotiations with insurance companies and their lawyers
- Collect evidence for your claim and interview witnesses in order to present the best case
- Evaluate your claim and tell you how much money you may be entitled to receive
- Recover your lost wages plus money for any future lost earning ability caused by your injury
- Recover all you’re entitled to receive for your pain and suffering
- Recover all other damages you may be entitled to receive as a result of your injury
In other words: you take care of your recovery, and we take care of the rest.
We cover your legal expenses
When you’re recovering from an injury, the last thing you want to think about is coming up with funding to pay for a lawyer. With Joel H. Schwartz, costs for things like obtaining medical records, expert fees, investigation costs and litigation costs are paid for by us along the way. We get reimbursed for these costs at the end of your case. Many other law firms expect you to pay for these costs during your case – but not us. That’s how confident we are that we’ll win your claim. The legal fee and all costs will come out of the settlement.
We make things easy for you
Being injured is distressing. You may have bills piling up and you may be out of work as a result of your injury. Insurance companies may be giving you a hard time. This is where we come in. If you are able, you can come to any of our offices to meet in person with the attorney who will represent you. But if you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you anytime, at your convenience.
We use the latest technology
It is more important that you find the right lawyer than someone who happens to be around the corner from you. We use technology to bridge geographic gaps and to simplify the process. If you’re unable to come to us and would prefer to get moving on your case immediately, we can use specially-designed software and e-mail to get you the documents you need to get going on recovering your lost wages right away.

We have experience in all types of injuries
You don’t go to a dermatologist with a heart problem. You also wouldn’t expect a real estate attorney to handle your injury claim. You go to a specialist.

During our 55-years of personal injury law practice, we have dealt with every type of injury imaginable, including yours.
We’re known for getting results
Our record of winning settlements for our clients pretty much speaks for itself. But your injury claim is the only one that matters. You will get all the time and personal attention it takes to make you feel comfortable, along with the legal expertise to bring your case to a successful conclusion.
We’re real people who happen to be lawyers
We have the same family, home, career and life goals and concerns as you do. Many of us have also experienced a personal injury either firsthand or peripherally, so we know exactly what you are feeling inside. And most importantly, we have the experience, compassion and commitment to seek justice for all victims of personal injury. As our firm’s founder Joel Schwartz said, “We treat every client as if he or she is the only one in our office.”
We’re committed to our community
We are more than advocates for personal injury victims. Our legal professionals are also actively involved in the communities we serve. By supporting organizations like the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Walk for Hunger, the Massachusetts Leukemia Society, and the Massachusetts Brain Injury Association, plus numerous other local and regional causes, our goal is to promote community involvement through action.
Our attorneys volunteer their time at the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Dial-A-Lawyer program and have conducted numerous free seminars for communities through the Brockton Housing Authority, the Brazilian Work Center and others. It is our firm’s belief that all people should have access to justice and sound legal advice, regardless of their economic status.
