Exploring Thorny Issues with the use of Medical Only NCPs

Course and Scope of Employment: Key Facts to Access and Assert the Defense
Presented by Jeffrey Newby and Richard Arnold
Our New Jersey attorneys will discuss the approach needed to address "arising out of" and "during the course of" employment to allow you to ask the right questions and get the right answers. One of the most common issues faced in a compensation case is "was the petitioner in the course and scope of his or her employment at the time of the accident?"
Going Beyond the Hand Held Camera: Effective Investigations in 2016
Presented by Christian Davis and Sherri Dougherty

MMI; Cutting Off Temp; Curative versus Palliative Treatment; the Timely VT
Presented by Alan Arsenis and John Kutner
Our New Jersey attorneys will review what defines curative versus palliative treatment as well as what is the next step once an employee is MMI. We will also discuss the right time to offer a voluntary tender in those cases where MMI is elusive and hotly contested.

Presented by Christian Davis and Renee Porada Frazier

Temporary Total Disability - Defense to the Obligation to Pay
Presented by Jeffrey Newby and Richard Tavani
Our New Jersey attorneys will review the defenses to the demand for "temp" and when it can be properly refused even if the petitioner (employee) is not employed and may even need treatment. Employees are entitled to temporary disability as long as they are actively treating and unable to work from a work injury.
