Personal Injury Lawyers
An injury can be catastrophically life altering.
When the injury is caused by the negligence or recklessness of person, business or other entity, the only avenue of compensation available is financial.
Victims need and deserve personal injury compensation—to pay for such things as medical expenses, to recoup lost income, and as compensation for their pain, suffering and emotional distress.
We understand that fundamental right and for decades have been achieving optimal results for clients from towns and cities across Connecticut—from Ridgefield, Redding, Danbury and Bethel to New Milford, Roxbury, Southbury, Woodbury, Bethlehem, Litchfield, Torrington, Cornwall, Salisbury, and elsewhere in Connecticut, including Waterbury, New Britain, and Hartford.
Many people who have been injured aren’t aware of their rights, or may be hesitant to pursue legal action if they feel what happened was “an accident.” Others who have been wronged are unsure how the process of seeking redress works, which makes taking action seem daunting.
Cramer & Anderson has a team of Personal Injury lawyers with long experience in winning favorable settlements and jury awards—and we do all the work.
As the largest firm in western Connecticut, we have the clout of the big firms that advertise on TV—and as a regional firm with offices in New Milford, Danbury, Litchfield, Kent and Washington Depot, we have hometown approachability.
Our personal injury lawyers put clients first, treat them with great care and respect, and guide them step-by-step through an often complex process as we pursue legal remedies promptly, efficiently and affordable.
We represent clients with a team of accident attorneys and paralegals who are highly experienced and understand what our clients have gone through.
Our injury lawyers are skilled advocates whose compassion with clients while meeting with them in the conference room is balanced by tenacity when fighting for those clients in negotiations with other lawyers, in litigation filings, and in the courtroom when a case proceeds to that level.

Barry S. Moller
Attorney Barry Moller’s “bread-and-butter” cases are so intricate they might intimidate attorneys with less experience.
Based on broad knowledge, experience and a determination to uncover and address every important detail, he passionately takes on complex cases within his primary Practice Areas, Workers’ Compensation, Personal Injury (motor vehicle accidents), and Premises Liability, dealing with property hazards that cause harm.
Attorney Moller is based in the New Milford office and often lectures on legal issues in Hartford, New Haven and beyond.
One recent example of a successful outcome:
“I have always represented the injured person, the individual who unfortunately finds himself or herself in a difficult time due to an unexpected injury or diagnosis. It is easy to passionately advocate for someone who is in dire straits and when you appreciate that their livelihood depends upon your advocacy and effort.” says Attorney Collins, whose principal practice areas are Personal Injury, including motor vehicle accidents, Workers’ Compensation, and Social Security Disability applications.
In her 18 years of practice, Attorney Collins has established a record of success on behalf of clients, built upon meticulous attention to details and deadlines, including a settlement of $1.2 million for a young lady who injured her neck at her workplace when a commercial overhead garage door released onto her neck. Complications developed thereafter causing a work ending condition.
Attorney Collins has extensive experience in preparing and trying injury claims to a jury, and has an ability to communicate effectively and persuasively with judges and opposing attorneys.
Attorney Collins is based in Cramer & Anderson’s Danbury office and handles cases and issues throughout Fairfield and Litchfield counties and beyond. She lives in Ridgefield with her family.
Ryan Henry is a trial lawyer. As a trial lawyer, Attorney Henry’s loyalty is to only one person/entity, and that is his client. From the moment you meet with Attorney Henry in the initial consultation and until your matter is resolved, he will fight for your best interest whether it is by way of settlement, trial or an appeal. Attorney Henry prides himself on continually preparing and analyzing cases to put his clients in the best situation to resolve their legal issue.
Attorney Henry has litigated more than 1,000 complex disputes including catastrophic car accidents, motorcycle, trucking, and boating accidents, product liability claims, premises liability, uninsured/underinsured motorist claims, commercial litigation, copyright infringement, dram shop claims (liquor liability), violations of the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act, the Connecticut Trade Secrets Act, business disputes, criminal matters, commercial and residential landlord/ tenant disputes, Social Security Disability claims, and Workers’ Compensation matters. Attorney Henry is also often requested to assist both his individual and corporate clients to defend claims when an insurance company refuses to provide coverage for the claim or a defense.
Client Review: I had the pleasure of having Ryan Henry & Glynis Gilbert represent me after being in a car accident. I went in knowing nothing about the process nor how to navigate and after successfully closing my case I’d comfortably recommend them to anyone who is in a similar situation. They were great at explaining the process upfront and answering any questions or concerns I had. I’m very appreciated of all the work they did on my behalf and if I ever unfortunately end up in a similar situation Ryan is who I’d call.
Attorney Mancini excels in litigation, but considers going to trial a last resort in Personal Injury cases if an acceptable settlement cannot be worked out. In one recent example, Attorney Mancini obtained an $800,000 settlement in a case in which a client slipped on ice in a commercial parking lot.
When the uncertainty of a trial can’t be avoided, Attorney Mancini embraces the challenges and works to achieve a successful outcome.
Based in the firm’s New Milford office, Attorney Mancini represents individual, corporate and public sector clients in a wide range of Civil Litigation cases, including the prosecution and defense of claims in contract, construction, property, tax appeal, insurance, and commercial disputes.
Attorney Mancini lives in Goshen.
In addition to his work with Cramer & Anderson, Attorney Sochacki is a member of New Hartford Volunteer Ambulance, and Deputy Director of Emergency Management. He is also counsel for the volunteer ambulance corps, providing legal services at a significantly reduced fee.
Attorney Sochacki’s volunteer service as a first responder has often helped him achieve impressive outcomes in Personal Injury cases.
He recently settled a Personal Injury case involving soft tissue damage from a low-impact rear end collision for an amount the mediator said exceeded settlements in nine of 10 comparable cases.
In a sensitive case whose details were not made public, Attorney Sochacki secured a settlement that stunned colleagues. His client was the family of a child abandoned on a school bus by a driver who failed to check the bus after dropping students at school. The settlement Attorney Sochacki won—in part because of insights from his EMS volunteerism—was more than three times what the Partners had estimated he could obtain. And he achieved it without filing a lawsuit.
Attorney Sochacki’s Civil Litigation practice focuses on personal injury, product liability, construction defects, medical malpractice, real estate errors and omissions, professional malpractice, and employers’ liability and discrimination.
He works primarily in the firm’s Litchfield office and lives in New Hartford with his family.
