Brilliant & Neiman LLC is proud to announce a Continuing Education Series, with topics of interest to the injured worker in Pennsylvania. The initial seminar in the series will take place on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 7:00 p.m., at the headquarters of the firm, 260 West Street Road in Warminster, PA.
The program on September 25, 2018 will be entitled “Settling a PA Workers’ Compensation Case – What the Injured Worker Has to Know.” We selected this topic to start the series, since we are often asked questions regarding the settlement of workers’ comp cases in Pennsylvania. Specifically, we will be discussing the timing of a settlement, the factors that go into determining the value of a PA workers’ compensation case (and the factors that, for reasons we will explain, do not), and the process (from the start of the settlement negotiations to the final approval of the Compromise & Release Agreement).
Additional programs will be held in October and November (for those marking their calendars, the dates will be October 24, 2018 and November 29, 2018). The program in October will examine and explain the PA workers’ compensation litigation process, from the origin of a claim, and the starting of benefits, through litigation when an insurance carrier seeks to reduce or end the benefits. We felt this topic would be helpful to address the stress an injured worker faces about the direction and future of his or her case. Finally, the November program will talk about the medical issues involved with an injured worker, specifically, as dealing with chronic pain. Depending on the level of interest, there could be additional programs added to this series.
