28th Annual Workers’ Comp Roundtable
Please join the NCAJ workers’ compensation section for the annual Round Table CLE event. This event is for section members only which not only allows us to learn about cutting edge issues but also discuss our case loads in a secure environment. There will be extended sessions to allow the open discussion of any/all ideas/questions that you have.
There will be an overview of the present state of the NCGS 97-29(c) extended benefits cases. We will also delve into the different type of subrogation liens and which ones to pay attention to. Further, we’ll have a session that fulfills your mental health requirement as well as another session that includes a technology component and will teach us how to calculate a client’s SSDi offset. That last part will help you determine whether an attorney fee can be gained and that fee’s effect on your client’s overall benefits package.
