Program 35 | 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m. Advanced Neurological Issues in Workers’ Compensation
The brain is mysterious, difficult, and daunting. Rating permanent injuries to the brain takes significant skill and understanding. This program will provide an overview of neurologic injuries, describe how to rate them using the AMA Guides, and address potential Almaraz-Guzman issues. The program also will cover the use of discovery to support or attack a neurologic complaint; how to detect malingering in neurologic patients; and how to prepare for a neurologist’s deposition.
Panelists: Jonathan Rutchik, M.D., and Mark Kimmel, M.D.
