Overview

The PBA Workers’ Compensation Bench Bar Committee’s Shares Their Best Practices Recommendations 

Nearly ten years ago, the PBA Workers’ Compensation Bench Bar Committee created a permanent standing committee to review and recommend ways to refine and improve workers’ comp practice in Pennsylvania. 

This information is disseminated via a half-day “Best Practices” forum that features a distinguished panel of workers’ compensation judges and attorneys who discuss ways to improve practice before the Court, offer practical solutions to common problems, and share strategies for side-stepping ethical traps that could damage a case.
