Serious Personal Injury Case Study

Silver Golub & Teitell LLP has a well-earned reputation for successfully representing people who have suffered a serious personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence, carelessness or wrongful conduct.

Our personal injury attorneys have earned some of the largest verdicts and settlements in state history for our clients, including multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements up to $40 million in all kinds of serious personal injury cases.  In fact, Silver Golub & Teitell has four verdicts and settlements that were inducted into the Connecticut Law Tribune Personal Injury Hall of Fame (please see below).

In another notable case, the plaintiff, a female tenant in a Connecticut condominium community, was attacked violently at night while asleep in her bedroom. She ultimately received $3.9 million as compensation for her serious personal injuries.  Other representative cases can be found on our Cases & Results page.
