Workers’ Comp Summit: Aug 25-27, 2019 – Samoset Resort, Rockport, ME


Workshop A: The Great Debate Returns

Monday, August 26th, 2019 @ 2:45 pm - 4:00 pm

Should this claim be paid?

What’s it all about? This engaging staple of Comp Summit gets to the heart of whether or not a claim should be paid. The faculty members continue to refresh this presentation and they will debate not only whether an injury arises out of and in the course of employment, but also other interesting issues and claims decided by the Board, Appellate Division and/or Law Court. Using a fast-paced and entertaining debate to engage even the most seasoned practitioner, the panel will present the employer, claims manager, and employee’s perspective and the audience will weigh in before the outcome of the actual case is given. Because the scenarios are real cases, the debate and PowerPoint presentation give attendees practical guidance and reference materials to assist in analyzing new and pending claims.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Enhance your knowledge of the “arising out of” and “in the course of employment” legal standards.
  • Consider the interrelationship of law and facts in the determination of compensability.
  • In the process, learn how to best position your case for success.
