Our Connecticut medical malpractice lawyers represent patients and families throughout the state who have suffered serious personal injury or wrongful death from a medical error. We have an experienced physician on staff who is deeply involved in the investigation of our cases.
In what was the highest medical malpractice verdict in Connecticut history at that time, Richard A. Silver and Angelo A. Ziotas presented expert testimony that an emergency C-section should take only ﬁve minutes and that Dr. Corrine de Cholnoky responded too slowly. Silver Golub & Teitell LLP recovered $38.5 million for the client.
In two of the firm’s other notable cases, the families of two women who fell into irreversible comas during childbirth two years apart agreed to settle their medical malpractice claims for $13.2 million and a substantial confidential settlement. Please see our Cases & Results page for some of our other medical malpractice cases.
Many more people are seriously and permanently injured as a result of medical malpractice or surgical malpractice. At Silver Golub & Teitell LLP, we are proud that our top medical malpractice attorneys and their cases have caused Connecticut hospitals to implement many changes in their procedures that are now preventing unnecessary injuries and deaths.

Our Connecticut lawyers focus on helping the people who have suffered the most severe injuries due to medical malpractice. These cases are difficult and expensive to pursue and require the best experience and resources that only a Connecticut law firm like ours can provide, such as an experienced physician on staff.
Our attorneys only bring a medical malpractice case when they have determined that a defendant’s negligence is clear. Many times, patients suffer unfortunate outcomes that are no one’s fault. If, after a thorough investigation, we find this to be the case, we help our clients understand what happened. We will never bring a medical malpractice case based solely on a bad outcome.
When negligence by a doctor or a hospital is found, our attorneys focus their efforts first on finding out what went wrong and then on developing the clearest way to explain it to a judge and jury.
We spare no expense in pursuing our clients’ claims. Our medical malpractice lawyers retain and consult with our carefully selected network of the best, most knowledgeable and independent expert witnesses from throughout the United States. We also use focus groups and jury consultants to help us at trial.
