Spring Into Action, But Fall Back On The Basics, Part 5: PQME Litigation
December 4, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
1 Hour MCLE; 1 Legal Specialization in Workers’ Compensation Law
Even before the applicant is seen by the PQME, a lot can be litigated about the PQME. This presentation addresses the most frequent issues that arise before the PQME evaluation, including how the WCAB addresses disputes about the medical specialty, timing of the PQME request, cancellation of the PQME evaluation, replacement panels and timeliness of the reports, and more. Knowing how these common issues are handled by the WCAB will allow the workers’ compensation practitioner to identify disputes that are worthwhile to litigate vs. ones that may just be a “dead end.”
Speakers: John Hernandez and Jamie Louie.
