REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED

Many healthcare providers are confused and frustrated by the cumbersome state regulations associated with treating an injured worker for a workers’ compensation claim in Oregon. Some have opted not to treat on-the-job injuries altogether. Our goal will be to familiarize attendees with an overview of the workers’ compensation process from injury to claim closure and the important role healthcare providers have from start to finish, as well as demonstrate two key areas in which physicians are involved in legal proceedings: a deposition and hearing.

Cost
Registration is only $59, which includes a continental breakfast, presentations and course materials. Attendees can receive 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Limited to the first 40 registrations.

 

7:00 to 8:00 AM Check in and Continental Breakfast
 Presentations:
8:00 to 10:00 AM Navigating the Maze of Oregon’s Workers’ Compensation Law
Defense attorney Bin Chen (representing employers and insurance carriers) and plaintiffs’ attorney Craig Miller (representing the injured worker) discuss the general legal principals and the medical provider’s role in the claim process.
10:00 to 10:30 AM Break
10:30 to 11:30 AM Mock Workers’ Compensation Deposition
A deposition allows all sides to have the same set of facts and details. All parties and their attorneys have the right to request depositions during the discovery period of a case in order to avoid surprises in court. The deposition is a legal meeting that carries the same importance as a hearing. What actually happens? What types of questions might be asked? Attorneys Bin Chen (defense) and Craig Miller (plaintiff) will call and question witnesses.
11:30 to 12:30 PM Mock Workers’ Compensation Hearing
Injured workers who disagree with a workers’ compensation claim decision have the right to appeal the decision to the Workers’ Compensation Board where a hearing may be heard. Healthcare providers as well as other witnesses may be called to testify and be cross examined. What are the hearing procedures?  Attorneys Kelsey Fleharty (defense) and Ned Arenberg (plaintiff) demonstrate the hearing process and medical testimony. Attorney Bin Chen presides.
