IRE in Pennsylvania
#1
I'm looking for any information on what's going to happen now that the Protz case threw out IRE . I'm wondering if I'm going to be able to reopen my claim my 500 weeks ran out about a year ago and I was under the 50 percent needed . My medical part of the claim is still open so were do I stand . Is this just going to help people now our will it go back to past IRE

they don't publish until decisions are handed down in writing.
there have been a few at the local/first level that allowed retroactive application and all have been appealed. no carrier/employer will restart payments until the supreme court has upheld or is unwilling to review a lower court determination.
watch the supreme court decisions for one that applies to your case.

I don't know if you are still tracking developments on the retroactivity of the Protz decision but Whitfield v WCAB
came out this month and seems to give some hope to those that have filed a petition to overturn their IRE even if they didn't raise the issue at the time of the original decision.

I did see that case . I'm still waiting to hear about my appeal its been over 4 months now . My lawyer thinks I have a good chances we filed a petion less then 1 year after my last payment I'm still unable to work my condition has even gotten worse . If we do win the appeal can the insurance comp take it to a higher court our would they have to start my payments again even if they take it to the next step ?

I'm from Pennsylvania . I know the next level above the appeal board is the PA Circuit court then the Pa Supreme Court . I'm just wondering if I do win the appeal and the insurance company takes it to the next level do they have to start my payments up our can they wait until they get a ruling from a higher court?
