Our office is in Fairfield, but our practice extends throughout the State of Connecticut. The types of law we practice as Fairfield Personal Injury Lawyers include:

Personal Injury

If you have been injured or had a loved one killed as the result of the negligence of another we are here to help. We have taken to jury verdict cases that span the spectrum of personal injury work including sexual abuse of minors, car accidents, construction accidents, police negligence, professional negligence, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle crashes, uninsured motorist cases, inadequate security cases against businesses, Dram Shop (bars over serving alcohol), and assault.

Sexual Abuse of Children

For over 30 years, Attorneys Robinson and Mahoney have represented people who were sexually abused as children. We were two of the first lawyers in Connecticut to represent victims of clergy abuse against the Catholic Church. We have collected millions of dollars for victims of clergy abuse. We have also successfully represented survivors in claims against public and private schools, residential treatment facilities, health care providers, perpetrators, towns, and teachers. We received a $2.75 million dollar jury verdict for a man who was sexually abused 40 years earlier by a physician. In upholding that verdict, the Connecticut Supreme Court recognized for the first time the obligation of an institution to protect a child in its care from a pedophile. We also achieved a $1.2 million dollar sexual abuse jury verdict against a health care facility for its failure to report suspected sexual abuse of a child in its care.

Car Accidents

We have represented thousands of people that have been injured or killed in car accidents and collected millions of dollars for them. Where the auto insurer refuses to pay our client a fair sum of money, we have taken those cases to jury verdict.

Motorcycle Accidents

Unfortunately when a motorcycle accident occurs, the injuries are almost always serious or deadly. The cases we have handled for motorcycle injuries include death, traumatic brain injury, fractured bones, spinal injuries, and terrible wounds. We have collected millions of dollars for our clients injured in motorcycle injuries.

Premises Liability

These cases most often involve falls on the property of another. The fall can occur on private or public property. It can occur at a business or store. We hold the property owner responsible for not maintaining the property in a safe condition.

Medical Malpractice

When a doctor commits an error and harms a patient the consequences can be deadly or life altering. We work with experts from around the country to build the case and prove that the doctor made a mistake that has caused you to suffer or your loved one to die.

Wrongful Death

Connecticut has a specific statute that governs Wrongful Death Claims which is different than the law in many other states. In Connecticut, the claim is brought to compensate the deceased for their loss of life rather than the loss to the family. We use that statute to maximize the recovery.

Trucking Accidents

All of us know how congested 95, 91 and 84 are with trucks in Connecticut. All of us have had experiences where we have seen tractor trailers being operated at excessive speeds. Too often this type of behavior results in an accident. Due to the size of the tractor trailer the injuries are frequently significant or fatal. We know how to develop and win your trucking accident claim.


There is no corner of Connecticut that has not been touched by crime. Very often that crime is preventable if people take proper steps to secure the property. Perhaps there needs to be cameras or fencing. Perhaps there needs to be cameras or security guards. We seek to hold the property owner responsible for victims of crime.

Legal Malpractice

When a lawyers representation of a client falls below the standard of care and the client is harmed, we seek to hold the lawyer responsible and to make the client whole for their losses.

As trial lawyers, we handle all aspects of personal injury law even if they are not listed here. We are Fairfield County Personal Injury Lawyers with sixty years of combined experience. Call us for more information.
