When you need surgery on a broken bone, you seek a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. When you get your taxes done, a certified public accountant can provide the specialized experience needed to guide you. But what happens when you want an attorney with very specific expertise in handling the complex and procedurally unique field of workers’ compensation? This very issue was recently addressed with an order signed by Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Ronald D. Castille on Jan. 12. The order granted accreditation to the Pennsylvania Bar Association workers’ compensation law section as a “certifying organization” in the area of workers’ compensation law.
The process and certification that was approved by the order, according to PBA President Matthew J. Creme Jr., benefits both the public and the legal practitioner. “Certification of lawyers in workers’ compensation law will give consumers valuable guidance, and it will afford legal practitioners the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and expertise in the area of workers’ compensation law,” Creme said in a recent PBA press release announcing the order.
