Workers' Compensation

Beard Legal Group represents only employers, their insurance carriers and third party administrators in Workers' Compensation defense. We take an aggressive, thorough approach to handling workers' compensation claims. Our expertise includes all aspects of Workers' Compensation defense from prevention of Workers' Compensation claims to the successful termination of ongoing compensation benefits. Our Workers' Compensation practice includes the defense of Workers' Compensation claims, insurance coverage questions, and representation at Administrative and Judicial levels.

The prevention of unwarranted claims is a priority for us and our clients, and we use a variety of methods to accomplish this goal. Once an employee receives Workers' Compensation benefits, we work closely with the employer to return the individual back to the work force as quickly as possible. If fraud is suspected, we can coordinate surveillance efforts.

We have defended Workers' Compensation claims throughout Pennsylvania. We know the Workers' Compensation judges and can often identify expert witnesses and physicians to present for a greater likelihood of success with each judge. We represent insurance companies, self-insured employers, and third-party administrators throughout the state.

Our Services Include:
  • Injury Prevention and Safety Coordination
  • Cost Reduction for Legitimate Injuries
  • Implementation of Successful Physician Panels
  • Assistance in Fraud Prevention
  • Coordination of Light Duty Programs
  • Aggressive Defense of Contested Injuries and Disabilities
  • Identifying Effective Independent Medical Examiners
  • Immediate Responses to Client Concerns
  • The Workers' Compensation team at Beard Legal Group remains cognizant of the need to control its costs, while at the same time providing the most effective counsel. We work closely with our clients to control litigation costs. We provide legal seminars and distribute recent statutory and case law developments to our clients. As a result our clients are aware of the ever-changing Workers Compensation Laws in Pennsylvania, and are able to effectively react to such changes.
