Cases We Have Handled

The firm has handled high-profile cases for decades, going back to its involvement in the litigation surrounding the collapse of the roof of the Hartford Civic Center more than 30 years ago. From that time forward, the firm has represented victims of the Connecticut Lottery shootings, Mott Metallurgical mercury poisoning, a fatal tour-bus accident in England, the Life Star helicopter crash, an electrocution after Hurricane Gloria, and a drowning in Elizabeth Park.

The firm represented the family of a young girl fatally stabbed in Middletown; a former NBA basketball player, Manute Bol, who was almost killed while a passenger in a taxi cab operated by an intoxicated driver; and the Estate of the University of Connecticut co-ed, Carlee Wines, who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver on the UConn campus.

In the recent past, the firm has represented the families of deceased victims of the Kleen Energy power plant explosion in Middletown, children who were sexually abused by Dr. George Reardon at St. Francis Hospital, and the family of the student from Rocky Hill who died in a school bus accident on Interstate 84 while on his way to a robotics competition. The firm is presently representing more than 40 victims of defective metal-on-metal hip implants in litigation in Texas and Ohio.

About RisCassi & Davis, P.C.

Fighting for the Rights of the Seriously Injured

Through more than 65 years of representing the injured, the attorneys at RisCassi & Davis, P.C., have fought for justice in Connecticut courts. Founding partners Leon RisCassi and William Davis began the firm in 1955, an era when plaintiffs’ rights – or the rights of the injured – were severely limited. Since that time, the firm has been a consistent leader in bringing about changes in the law – including laws to protect consumers, such as the Connecticut Product Liability Act – and winning cases on behalf of our clients. Today, we have 10 experienced trial lawyers and an extensive support staff filling our main office in downtown Hartford as well as satellite locations in Middletown and Avon.
