Work injuries can occur despite all available training, safeguards, and practices. Our team of lawyers and paralegals provides experienced and sophisticated representation to individuals, employers, insurance carriers, and third-party administrators in workers' compensation claim strategy and litigation. Our clients are involved in nearly every aspect of commerce and industry, including manufacturing, construction, tool & die, machining, forging, education, transportation, retail, and health care. We handle matters before workers' compensation judges throughout Western and Central Pennsylvania, and before the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board and the Pennsylvania Commonwealth and Supreme Courts.
Our attorneys understand that litigating workers' compensation claims is costly for employers and insurers, and therefore strive to control costs for our clients. We work closely with employers and insurers to minimize and control liability for workers' compensation benefits, as well as potential exposure under other employment laws, including anti-discrimination and wage and hour statutes. Working in concert with vocational counselors and rehabilitation management firms, we help injured employees return to productive work. In addition to aggressively defending claims and seeking resolutions, we also identify and pursue third-party liability.Related Services
