Verdicts and Settlements

At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we understand how devastating it can be for injury victims to try to cope with the consequences of another person's irresponsible, reckless choices. Unfortunately, nothing can truly compensate injury victims for the pain and suffering they must endure; under the law, the best justice injury victims can receive is a financial award for their damages. That's why we are committed to helping our clients pursue the largest awards possible, in order to ensure that they have the resources they need to deal with the consequences of their injury and to hold the responsible party accountable. While we cannot guarantee results in future cases as each case has unique facts and circumstances, the following are representative examples of successes we have had in the past. Similar or better results cannot be guaranteed.

As a serious personal injury practice in Connecticut, the verdicts and settlements are as you might expect quite varied. As a result, the available resources needed to undertake the analysis and handle similar cases for you is made much easier. The following represents only a sampling of case types sucessfully handled in Connecticut courts by Attorney Levin.
