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 place 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.

Each year, vaccines prevent millions of illnesses in the United States alone. However, getting vaccinated carries certain risks as well. All types of vaccines have been linked to injuries and illnesses, and these can have devastating effects on vaccine recipients and their families.
A concussion occurs when an impact causes the brain to smash against the skull, resulting in brain injury. Since sports-related concussions occur with alarming frequency, laws have been put into place to try to prevent these sorts of accidents. If an accident does occur, Connecticut personal injury law entitles the victim to financial compensation.
A car accident is always a terrible experience; but when one is caused due to another person’s fault, carelessness, and negligence, it is even worse. An unnecessary and preventable accident that causes someone to suffer injuries or even death is very difficult to accept.
Any degree of damage or trauma to the spinal cord disrupts the nerve delivery system and interferes with the body’s ability to send and receive messages to the brain. As a result, a person may suffer a number of temporary or permanent disabilities ranging from sore joints to complete paralysis.
Elder abuse is far more common than we are aware of or would like to admit. One study found that 7.6%–10% of its elderly study participants experienced abuse in the prior year. Hence, while we trust nursing homes, assisted care facilities, and home health agencies to do the right thing and provide the quality care that elders need, this is not always the case.
Product liability is the term for the area of law that concerns the safety of products. Any party involved in putting a dangerous product into the marketplace can be held liable, including the manufacturer, parts supplier, distributor, and retailer. Product liability claims can be based on three different legal theories.
Pharmaceuticals are meant to improve our quality of life by treating or controlling illness and prolonging our lives. But many of these medicines have hidden hazards that can severely injure or kill those who trust them to better their health.
Furniture tip-overs are among the greatest safety risks in the home and, tragically, more than half of all accident victims are children. Furniture designers and manufacturers have a legal obligation to ensure that their products are safe, and holding them accountable is critical to mitigating safety risks at work and at home.
Accidents involving commercial trucks account for more than 10 percent of traffic fatalities. The non-fatal injury figures are similarly disproportionate. At Berkowitz Hanna, our Connecticut truck accident lawyers are intimately familiar with these issues. We have decades of experience helping truck accident victims recover just compensation.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Riding a motorcycle is a unique experience. Unfortunately, so is being injured in a motorcycle accident. While insurance covers motor crash accidents, insurance companies routinely blame riders for their own injuries. At Berkowitz Hanna, our motor vehicle accident lawyers are committed to helping riders and their loved ones secure the financial compensation they deserve.

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 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 are 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 They 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 helps 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
