Tom Baumann of Abes Baumann, PC was recently asked to speak at a seminar by the Western Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association. At a continuing legal education seminar on October 9, 2017, Mr. Baumann was the sole speaker at a Seminar entitled “Protz v. WCAB–The Art of the Possible.” The purpose of the seminar was to inform Western Pennsylvania attorneys about  the implications of the landmark Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision in Protz v. WCAB. In this case the Supreme Court determined that a portion of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act was in fact unconstitutional. This has been a very important development that has positively affected the lives of many injured workers’ who receive workers’ compensation in Pennsylvania. Mr. Baumann was the injured workers’ attorney in the Protz case. Mr. Baumann was warmly received by the many attorneys present and thanked the Association for the opportunity to speak before it. Abes Baumann attorneys are well-versed in the legal ramifications of the Protz decision. Any injured worker who has questions along this line should feel free to contact the firm at info@abesbaumann.com.
