Appeal to PA Supreme Court Sought in PGW v. Workers’ Comp Appeal Board

As you may recall, in a recent blog entry, we mentioned the case of PGW v. Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board (Amodei). This was the case where the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania stated, unequivocally, that credit against pension benefits in PA workers’ comp is to be done on the net amount of the benefit, rather than the gross.

It has now come to our attention that the workers’ compensation insurance carrier in this case has filed a Petition for Allocatur with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, asking the State’s highest Court to accept an appeal in this matter.

As always, we will keep everyone posted on developments in this, and any other, PA workers’ comp matter. We also want to remind folks that we are happy to answer questions regarding any Pennsylvania workers’ compensation issues. You can contact us by telephone or e-mail, through our firm website.
