Spring Into Action, But Fall Back On The Basics, Part 3: Getting Rolda Right
October 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
1 Hour MCLE; 1 Legal Specialization in Workers’ Compensation Law
What’s the first thing you think of when you think of Rolda? If you thought of a quirky 70’s sitcom starring Valerie Harper, you owe it to yourself to come to the CLA Workers’ Compensation Spring Conference. The panelist will discuss psychiatric injuries involving good faith personnel actions, predominant cause, and what evidence needs to be provided. Brian Jacks, M.D. (one of the original reporters in the Rolda case), Judge Alicia Hawthorne and Senior Deputy County Counsel Alec Beyer will present a step-by-step guide to getting psychiatric reports Rolda compliant. The presentation will be a unique blend of analysis of this frequently-complex issue from the differing perspectives of an evaluating physician, a WCJ, and a day-to-day practitioner. The analysis will include a historical perspective of the issue as well as the medical-legal issues as seen by both physicians and lawyers.
Speakers: Alec Beyer, Hon. Alicia Hawthorne, Dr. Brian P. Jacks
