Women’s Issues

“Women have been trained to speak softly and carry a lipstick. Those days are over.” — Bella Abzug

The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder PC, have a long and successful history of standing up and speaking out on behalf of women who have been injured or wronged. We represent women harmed by medical malpractice, defective products, sexual harassment, physical assault, psychiatrist abuse and other causes.

A Tradition of Advocating for Women

More than 25 years ago, Koskoff successfully represented women who developed toxic shock syndrome from a brand of tampon. We also represented women who developed cancer because their mothers were prescribed the estrogen replacement DES while pregnant.

Today, we are respected in Connecticut and nationwide as medical malpractice attorneys who get results for women victims of obstetrical and gynecological malpractice. We have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for women and children injured by medical negligence during pregnancy, labor and delivery.

Koskoff represents several hundred women injured by breast implants. These clients are part of the largest mass breast implant action in the country.

We also pursue compensation for female victims of sexual abuse by professionals, including doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, clergy, teachers and others.

Discrimination and Sexual Harassment

Our civil rights team represents women victims of sexual harassment and gender discrimination. For example, we represent a group of 2,000 female employees of the Connecticut Department of Correction in a lawsuit alleging a hostile work environment, sexual harassment and workplace discrimination.

Our legal team includes five female attorneys, among them a former president of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers’ Association and two lawyers who are former nurses. Our attorneys are ably assisted by a staff of more than a dozen women paralegals, three of whom are also nurses.
