Daniel Rosner is an Associate in the Insurance Defense Practice Group and a member of the Pennsylvania Bar. Mr. Rosner’s practice consists of defending individuals and businesses in personal injury litigation. His cases range from construction and utility accidents involving electrocutions, burns, and fall protection, to premises liability lawsuits arising out of dog bites, habitability and building conditions, and snow or ice removal. Mr. Rosner has also represented insurance companies in breach of contract and bad faith actions, and has investigated potential insurance fraud by his client’s policyholders.
As a separate component of his practice, Mr. Rosner advises insurance carriers on coverage determinations for property damage and bodily injury claims against homeowners and businesses across the country. He is also well-versed in the area of risk transfer disputes based on additional insured status and contractual indemnification.
Before joining the firm, Mr. Rosner had a distinguished academic career, graduating cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh and magna cum laude from the Drexel Kline School of Law, where he was an Associate Editor of the Drexel Law Review. As a member of that publication, Mr. Rosner authored a Note entitled In Guns We Entrust, 11 Drexel L. Review 421 (2018). In recognition of his novel critique of a federal statute immunizing the gun industry from civil tort liability, Mr. Rosner received the Emalee G. Welsh Award for Excellence in Legal Scholarship given annually to the Best Student-Written Publication.
Mr. Rosner also used his legal education to give back to the local community. In his clinical experience with Philadelphia Legal Assistance, Mr. Rosner obtained Protection from Abuse Orders on behalf of domestic violence survivors and represented indigent Philadelphians in their custody trials in the Court of Common Pleas Family Division. He also devoted his time to teach constitutional law to inner city high school students, several of whom he coached through the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project’s National Moot Court Competition in Washington, D.C.
