Experienced medical practitioners, veteran worker’s compensation attorneys, and an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) unite at the 24th Annual Advanced Worker’s Compensation Symposium. Explore four common work-related injuries from all sides and learn to apply what you learn to bolster your next claim.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): Go over a typical TBI diagnosis, treatments, and healing period. Examine how these types of injuries can aggravate certain pre-existing conditions and the types of residual effects and expected work restrictions.
Cervical spine injuries: Hear how spine injuries are diagnosed and treated, as well as how doctors determine occupational causes. Receive guidance on the steps you should take to help your expert rebut the findings of an independent medical exam.
Hip injuries requiring replacement: Learn how traumatic hip injuries differ from occupational injuries. Understand the criteria for hip replacement surgery and the advantages of a less invasive surgical method. Explore how less invasive procedures change the healing period and recommended permanent restrictions.
Environmental and occupational lung disease: Find out more about the most common environmental and occupational lung diseases and how doctors determine the diagnosis and causation. Then look at available treatment plans and factors used to assess permanent work restrictions and permanent partial disability.
As each subject is presented by a medical specialist, an experienced worker’s compensation attorney will provide insight on presenting the injures at hearing. Then, our ALJ will provide perspective on how the court looks at each type of injury. Don’t miss your chance to hear from doctors, lawyers, and an ALJ – all in one place. Register today!
