Workers' Compensation

Practice Lead

Cipriani & Werner represents insurance carriers, self-insureds and TPAs in Workers’ Compensation matters.  The Workers’ Compensation Group has been the firm’s largest growth area over the past ten years.  The Group is staffed by more than thirty attorneys proficient in litigating all aspects of the Workers’ Compensation claim from pre-litigation counseling through   appellate advocacy before the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board, Commonwealth Court and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  The combined experience of our attorneys enables us to provide clients with not only a historical perspective of the law, but also the strength and ability to provide zealous representation while staying abreast of the most recent developments in the law.  The firm maintains four Pennsylvania offices that allows for local coverage throughout the Commonwealth.  Our size provides clients with specialized knowledge of the local judges and procedures that establishes credibility with the bench, thereby benefiting the client. 

The firm’s growth has been such that we now rank as one of the largest Workers’ Compensation firms in Pennsylvania.  Our attorneys provide counseling and aggressive litigation support for clients who invariably face a wide range of oftentimes complex and potentially very expensive workers compensation issues.

The growth of our Workers’ Compensation Group has been the result of developing strong relationships with clients by fostering close communication and continuing education. The result is effective and positive representation.  Our focus over the years has been to not only aggressively defend against claims when they arise, but to educate and work with our clients to implement appropriate policies and procedures designed to minimize the occurrence of claims.  We remain committed to developing new strategies to address changes in the law that will best serve our clients.
