Workers' Compensation Law

Law Offices of John D. Ritson

Workers’ Compensation Law

Attorney John D. Ritson

I have been handling workers’ compensation matters now for over 34 years. This firm has successfully handled death cases under workers’ compensation including appropriate survivor benefits for the spouse, traumatic brain injury claims, amputee matters and a full gambit of orthopedic injuries requiring surgery.

I work very hard in getting you total temporary disability payments when you are first injured and not receiving a paycheck. This firm never takes a legal fee out of any total temporary disability paychecks while you are unable to work.

I have worked out a specialty niche on complex workers’ compensation matters that involve medical care set asides required by the federal government, coordinating of municipal disability pensions and social security disability benefits with worker compensation claims and reimbursement to Medicare for conditional payments and/or medical set aside agreements.

Let my experience work for you to get your matter settled and have you protected in the future from offsets to your social security disability and/or municipal disability pensions.

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