Lawyer Profile: Greg Neinstein's Achievements in Personal Injury Law

Personal Injury Lawyer Toronto - Greg Neinstein

Greg Neinstein was born into the personal injury law business. His father, Gary Neinstein formed Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers back in 1971 and 43 years later, Greg has since taken over as the firm's managing partner with his brother, Jeff who's also a partner, at his side. Greg followed in his father's footsteps as a lawyer since he wanted to help people, he says. He chose to work with his family after articling and since practicing he's realized that the work he does is important to helping someone in a time of need. "It's a big responsibility when families that are injured or experience a time of crisis ask for my help," says Greg. "It's a responsibility that I take extremely seriously and I?m not going to mislead the trust that they place in me. "I will do what is necessary to ensure I follow through in the representation I provide on day one." People who need the assistance of a personal injury lawyer have suffered a traumatic incident. Unfortunately, personal injuries are a major factor behind the death of children and young adults, according to 2009 study by Statistics Canada. Also, one in seven Canadians have suffered from an injury that limited activities they could perform. Greg's role in the firm focuses on serious injury and complex insurance claims, including motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall injuries, long-term disability claims and insurance claims. He completed his law education at Osgoode Hall Law School and he's been certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a specialist in civil litigation. He was called to the bar in 1999 and over the years, he's accumulated extensive court and litigation experience, including establishing precedents in favour of his plaintiffs. These cases include: Club Resorts Ltd. v Van Breda, which allowed a Canadian resident to file a lawsuit in Ontario after suffering catastrophic injuries from an accident in Cuba, Kolbuc v. ACE Ina Insurance, which allowed a Canadian resident to file a successful disability insurance claim after being infected by the West Nile Virus from a mosquito bite and Gostick v. Squance, which ruled in favour of the Canadian resident who was rewarded an additional million dollars of insurance funds. Club Resorts Ltd. v Van Breda is also one of Greg's most memorable cases since he was fighting for compensation for a woman who was left a paraplegic after her accident. "It was an uphill battle to get her compensation here in Ontario," he says. "After several court proceedings and seven years later, we finally were able to get this woman the proper medical rehabilitation means to live a dignified life." But he remains humble despite his achievements. "Being a young man with a young family, I?m happy to think that it's had such a impact in our industry," says Greg. "It's very rewarding." Greg's hard work has caught the attention of other lawyers and he's been repeatedly recommended for representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases in Lexpert's rankings and nominated for the Best Lawyers list. While staying informed about the latest changes within the legal industry is important, Greg also believes lawyers need to be empathetic, patient and determined to fight for their clients. This includes ensuring that his clients have access to reputable advocates to assist them with their recovery, says Greg.
