The City of Danbury has a mission to ensure that everyone who lives there has a superior quality of life. Established more than four centuries ago, it was named after the English village of Danbury.
Danbury, CT, which is a lot bigger than its namesake, takes credit for the name of the crystalline mineral danburite, which was discovered there in 1839. Nicknamed the Hat City because centuries ago it was the center of the country’s hat industry, it’s reputedly an expensive place to live. But it’s also been ranked as USA Today’s second-best city in the U.S. to live.
It’s also worth noting that it has a bit of a history in terms of personal injury. Because the hat factories used mercuric nitrate in their felting processes, many workers suffered from erethism, also known as Mad Hatters’ Disease. Because it caused tremors, slurred speech, and stumbling, it was dubbed the Danbury shakes.
Connecticut banned the use of mercury in 1941, so you’re not at risk of getting Mad Hatters’ Disease. But there are many other common causes of personal injury in the beautiful City of Danbury, CT today.

FAQs From Our Danbury, CT Clients
What happens if you can’t get the person or entity that injured me to pay compensation?
We go to trial. It can be a longer process, but because you only pay when we win, it’s not going to cost you more.
My insurance company says they will compensate me, is this enough?
Insurance companies generally try to pay as little as they can. Our attorneys will negotiate with insurance companies to get the best possible compensation for our clients.
How long do I have to file a claim for compensation after an accident?
In Connecticut, you have two years, but it’s never a good idea to leave a claim until the last minute. If your claim is against a government body or local authority, you will usually have only 60 days. The sooner you act, the more chances our lawyers will have to build a strong case.
Will you be able to tell me how much compensation I can claim?
Once we have assessed your case and looked at all the evidence we can find (with your help), we will be able to evaluate your claim. Our attorneys will discuss this with you, and you will have a chance to add information and make final decisions before we proceed with your case.
