Has Almaraz/Guzman become the rule instead of the exception? Do vocational experts still have a place in Permanent Disability disputes? Are psychological, sex and sleep disorders still alive and kicking? Why are doctors suddenly adding impairments instead of combining? How are the rules affecting apportionment changing? Audience members will spin the wheel to find out, and may even win a prize! You will hear from two experienced Workers’ Compensation attorneys, one arguing the applicant’s position, and one arguing for the defense, to gain insights into these and other issues. 12:00-1:00 p.m. Lunch and Networking Please bring your business card for an opportunity to win a free PARMA membership, and other door prizes!
