Experienced Legal Representation for Injured Patients in Hartford, Connecticut
The doctor-patient relationship is a sensitive and all-important one. When you seek medical assistance for an injury or ailment, you expect to receive adequate, effective, and responsible care.
That expectation is a reasonable one. The law recognizes it and protects it. And it is extended to surgeons, dentists, hospitals, urgent care providers, and most medical professionals who provide treatment to individuals.
Because doctors perform such a vital, indispensable, and high-stakes role in society, they are expected to uphold extremely high standards in their delivery of care. Unfortunately, they don’t always meet that bar.
The overwhelming majority of doctors are good people, and they mean well. But too often, they allow distractions, exhaustion, or carelessness to get the best of then. Whatever the cause may be, mistakes are surprisingly common in the medical profession.
Consider this: Medical negligence causes more than 100,000 American deaths every year.
The doctors and nurses responsible for those deaths don’t intend for them to happen, of course. But they happen nonetheless. And when carelessness is to blame, the victims – and sometimes their family members – are entitled to financial compensation for their suffering and other losses.
Frustratingly, the medical profession has been successful in establishing roadblocks on victims’ paths to justice. Bringing a legal action for medical malpractice in Connecticut isn’t easy. But an experienced Hartford medical malpractice attorney at Berkowitz and Hanna LLC can make a meaningful difference.
Don’t settle for less than you deserve. If you or your loved one has suffered because of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation. But the insurance companies on the other side will work hard to pay you as little as possible. Let us fight for you.
Our legal professionals have achieved tremendous success for people just like you. Our goal is to shoulder the burden of litigation for you, so that you can focus on getting better while we insist that you be treated fairly, in accordance with the law.

The Types of Cases We Handle
There is no one-size-fits-all description of medical malpractice. Doctors make unintentional mistakes all of the time, and those mistakes can cause so many different types of harm. Just as every human body is unique, the impact of negligence on those bodies is unique in every case, too.
Fortunately, the law allows for a broad scope of legal and financial recovery. Unfortunately, insurance companies have been successful in lobbying for tight restrictions of medical malpractice claims in our state.
The good news, though, is that an experienced law firm can substantially improve your chances of getting the just compensation that you deserve. Our office has decades of experience in securing full-throttled justice for injured and ailing patients in Connecticut, as well as for grieving families.
