A new Frequently Asked Question has been, "I have the Coronavirus, can I get workers' compensation benefits?" The answer is that, yes, you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits depending on the facts. This can be whether you have contracted COVID-19 through work, or whether you have lost a modified duty job through an employer closing or layoff. Email or call us to discuss the specifics of your case in regard to the Coronavirus or any other work injury.

PA Workers’ Comp Seminar in Hershey

Last Thursday and Friday, I attended the annual Fall Meeting of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Workers’ Compensation Section in Hershey, PA. While I hate to be out of the office for the two days, I think it is important to hear, and discuss, things that are happening in the Pennsylvania Courts, as well as with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and its Workers’ Compensation Judges. In addition to reviewing recent Court Cases, we also discussed the status of the law regarding “retirement” (voluntary withdrawal from the labor market), “Labor Market Surveys” (also known as “Earning Power Assessments”), and the new 6th Edition of the AMA Guides to Evaluation of Permanent Impairment (which is going to be used to for Impairment Rating Evaluations (IRE)). Going to seminars such as this is what allows us to know the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act inside and out, ultimately, to the benefit of our clients. And, since the seminar is in Hershey, the fact chocolate bars are placed on every table never hurts either!
