Workers Compensation

No one thinks it will happen to them... but every year thousands of Pennsylvania workers suffer a workplace injury or work-related illness.

The Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act and the accompanying forms, procedures, and responsibilities for injured workers are complex and can be confusing. The experienced workers comp lawyers at Hippo, Fleming & Pertile understand that every injury or illness is different, and every case is unique. It is our priority to work closely with our clients through every step of the process, whether it is assistance in filing a claim, understanding the different benefits available, or appealing a denial.

Attorney Wayne Hippo draws on over 17 years of experience as a defense attorney for some of the largest insurance companies in Pennsylvania, to now focus on helping injured workers understand their rights and receive the compensation and benefits they deserve.

We provide legal representation to injured workers experiencing at every step of the process including:

  • Problems with Medical bills
  • Filing claims
