Multiple perspectives, one place
Understanding a worker’s compensation injury from the viewpoint of the client, the employer, the physician, and the judge is essential for effective representation. The 22nd Annual Advanced Worker’s Compensation Symposium brings together doctors, seasoned practitioners, and an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) to share important insights on common scenarios and the recent overhaul to worker’s comp laws in Wisconsin.
Prepare for permanency apportionment
Wisconsin Act 180 revised the state’s worker’s comp system to allow for permanency apportionment in traumatic injury cases. For every traumatic injury, there must now be a determination: what percentage of the permanent disability is attributable to the work trauma and how much is attributable to “other factors,” such as obesity, diabetes, or prior injuries?
Learn the answers to key questions surrounding the permanency apportionment issue, including:
- How will apportionment be determined?
- What rebuttal options can be used against an apportionment determination?
- Will more claims start including the argument that repetitive occupational injury caused the traumatic injury in question?
Injuries and IMEs
Understand the mechanics and treatments of everyday injuries and how they play out in the worker's compensation system.
- Know the diagnostics and procedures used for common spinal conditions.
- Review the steps and elements of an Independent Medical Exam (IME) for scheduled injuries.
