Personal Injury Law

Attorney John D. Ritson

I have over 34 years of experience handling personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. Over that 34 year period I have collected millions of dollars for my clients.

I pride myself in working very hard on your file in preparing it so it is in a position of settlement. This is done with the hopes of settling your case without the necessity of litigation and filing a complaint against the at-fault party.

If the insurance company representing the at-fault party is unreasonable, we promptly commence litigation at that juncture and put the case into the judicial court system and navigate your case to a trial date as quickly as possible.

This firm always pays for all of your costs and expenses up front and there is never a legal fee unless we are successful with your case based on a contingency fee agreement.

If you or someone you know in Connecticut needs the assistance of an experienced Hartford Personal Injury Lawyer, call Attorney John D. Ritson today at (860) 651-3200, or complete the contact form provided below to schedule your free consultation.
