Tony Cosentino has recovered over $75 million for victims of negligence and for injured Pennsylvania workers. Tony's cases involve motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, workers' compensation claims, construction accidents, liquor liability, premises liability and cases involving the general negligence of others. Over his career as a trial attorney, he has successfully represented firefighters, police officers, sheriffs, first responders, teachers, doctors, nurses, heavy equipment operators, welders, electricians, truck drivers, roofers, and warehouse workers.

Tony's legal victories have resulted in safer workplaces throughout central Pennsylvania, safety reforms in state agency practices, increased protections for the public, and the prosecution of businesses that failed to carry workers' compensation insurance.
