Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers Protecting the Rights of those Injured Because Someone Else Was Negligent
Serving Personal Injury Victims throughout Connecticut Including Stamford, Danbury, Shelton, and Bridgeport
For the vast majority of the public, there's a stereotypical mental image that comes to mind when they hear the term "personal injury lawyer" - many of which are, regrettably, negative.
The entire legal team at Berkowitz Hanna is here to change that perception for the better.
We cannot deny the fact that there are a lot of shady personal injury lawyers out there who fit the classical "ambulance chaser" mold. What we can do is provide effective, professional, and knowledgeable legal counsel to each and every one of our clients. We can be committed to ethical legal practices in every situation. Our dedicated Connecticut personal injury attorneys can ensure that you will receive personal and compassionate service at every stage of your case.
We take pride in breaking the mold when it comes to providing exemplary and comprehensive personal injury legal services. We provide the quality of a big-name firm with the personal touch of a sole practitioner. It is that unique combination that sets us apart from our competitors and offers you the peace of mind that all of your legal needs and questions will be timely and adequately addressed.
Commitment - Dedication - Honesty
We are regarded as one of the preeminent, leading personal injury law firms in Connecticut. We commit ourselves and our resources to placing our clients' needs and interests above all else. We honestly can say that we dedicate our legal abilities and our time to helping others injured through no fault of their own.
When our proven Connecticut personal injury lawyers represent someone who was hurt because someone else was negligent, we do whatever it takes to ethically, responsibly, and tenaciously advocate for justice. To best serve our clients, we handle potential cases in the following manner:
- We always conduct a thorough evaluation of an individual's potential claims before we accept a case:
- We review the facts of the matter and determine what additional information we need.
- If necessary, we consult with specialists and experts to evaluate injuries and to establish causation.
- We apply the law to the facts to determine if a viable claim is possible.
- We then provide an honest assessment of the case, the likelihood of a favorable outcome, and whether we feel we can move forward with the initiation of a lawsuit.
- We set forth realistic expectations based on our professional experience and on the facts of the case.
- We discuss potential next steps, and we go from there.
Experience Matters When it Comes to Your Personal Injury Case
"I want to express my appreciation for the work of Berkowitz[Hanna] and especially Christina Hanna. Christina represented me and my family recently in litigation. Her professionalism, perseverance and frankly brilliant work brought an apology from the defense. She made my case matter - for me and my daughter, and for the defense. This caring and drive to do the right thing for the right reason is why I believe in Christina and would highly recommend her to anyone. My entire family is grateful to Christina, and I hold her up as an example to my daughter of what strength and character can be. Thank you Christina, and Berkowitz[Hanna], for being there for me and my family."
In addition to our ethical and honest approach to all cases, our Connecticut personal injury attorneys also offer a combined decades of experience, knowledge, and credibility. These attributes have helped us secure a reputation as a formidable law firm that provides the highest level of legal services.
Our superior personal injury legal team has extensive experience handling many types of injury cases throughout the State of Connecticut. We represent clients in state courts, federal courts, and before administrative agencies.
This quality and quantity of experience is essential to providing our clients with the best possible outcomes. We understand the many nuances of personal injury law and procedure. We also have an in-depth knowledge of Connecticut's "no fault" laws, which is an important consideration in many personal injury cases.
Handling Insurance Companies and Their Attorneys
We spend significant time dealing with insurance companies and their attorneys. This is an important component of any personal injury case, and it is one where our reputation and successful track record truly benefit our clients:
- Insurance companies know we are not afraid to take a case to trial if they fail to present a fair and reasonable settlement offer of compensation to our client.
- They also know that we are extremely familiar with their tactics, the way they operate, and their practice of initially offering low-ball, unfair, and unreasonable settlement amounts.
- When insurance companies know that our team is on the other side of a case, they forego much of the gamesmanship and time-wasting bickering.
- Instead, they come to the table ready to begin a real discussion about the case and possible settlement options.
Recovering for Clients What the Need and Deserve
There is no crystal ball that can tell us exactly what your case is "worth." Instead, we rely on our experience, judgment, and abilities to advise clients on potential recovery amounts.
We analyze the type and extent of your physical injuries as well as the financial burden associated with those injuries. We consider how your injuries affect your current and future employment opportunities. We also factor in the pain and suffering you and your loved ones must endure because of your injuries.
Specifically, our skillful Connecticut personal injury law firm help clients recover the following types of financial damages:
- Medical expenses
- Related out-of-pocket costs
- Costs and expenses related to rehabilitation therapies
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Loss of companionship
- Lost wages, present and future
- Loss of earning capacity
- And more
Because there is so much at stake in the outcome of your personal injury case, put yourself in the best possible position to recover what you deserve. Contact Berkowitz and Hanna LLC today.
