DRI Regional Workers’ Compensation Seminar

The Workers’ Compensation Committee of the DRI has designed a brand new kind of program focused on issues of interest for those responsible for workers’ compensation across the Southeastern United States. On September 16, 2015, the committee will host a regional, all-day seminar at the Atlanta Marriott Perimeter Center in Atlanta, Georgia

During the seminar, Kelley Kronenberg Partner Timothy Dunbrack will serve on a panel during the Compensability: We Really Aren’t All the Same! presentation. This panel of professionals will explain how the exact same fact scenario regarding alleged work-related injuries would be treated differently in separate jurisdictions. This lively discussion will include some scenarios that would be considered unquestionably compensable in some states while being unquestionably denied in other states.

Throughout the day, risk managers, claims professionals, and attorneys will all benefit from the analysis and discussions presented by an esteemed panel of professionals. Attendees will gain insights from professionals on the following: jurisdictional challenges; compensability differences among states in the Southeast; anatomy and physiology of a knee injury from a doctor’s perspective; tips for navigating settlements to benefits employers, carriers, and TPAs; and risk management strategies for dealing with ethical issues.

See you in Atlanta!
