A Labor Market Survey in Pennsylvania is an attempt by the employer/insurer to reduce their exposure (ie, what they pay you) in your case by alleging that although you cannot perform your pre-injury job, you can perform other available work within the economy in your geographical location that fits within your physical and vocational abilities.
It starts with an interview by a “vocational expert”, then leads to some reports being generated, followed by a Petition to Modify or Suspend your wage loss benefits.
You absolutely need an experienced workmens comp lawyer like myself throughout this process, unless you are interested in being victimized by their experts (medical and vocational) who will undoubtedly assert that you can do more than you really are able to handle.
