Sam Pond, Managing Partner at Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano, will present alongside Honorable Rochelle S. Friedman, Senior Judge of the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, and Honorable Todd B. Seelig, Workers’ Compensation Office of Adjudication, on Friday, February 1st, 2013, at The Philadelphia Bar Association. As part of a Workers’ Compensation CLE program, they will be presenting Hot Topic in Workers’ Compensation: A Discussion of the AMA’s Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment.
The presentation will address issues regarding the constitutionality of the American Medical Association’s (AMA) “Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment” Sixth Edition (Dec. 2007). Specifically, Pond and his co-presenters will discuss whether either the General Assembly or the Department of Labor and Industry has any input into, or control over, the AMA’s revisions to the Guides. Additionally, they will address whether or not the Guides determine the extent of disability – and whether a disability is total or partial.
