Legal & Medical Insight to Psychiatric Injuries – presented by Peter Lichaa (Partner, Bartier Perry) and Dr Glen Smith (IME Psychiatrist)

Date - 29 August 2019
Venue - Rydges Newcastle

Psychiatric Injury claims are typically complex and difficult to manage; and when they are presented as a claim for lump sum compensation the assessment of WPI is not a straightforward task.  In this seminar, we will provide a legal and medical perspective of the key issues to be addressed when managing such claims.  This will include looking at:

  • Assembling evidence;

  • Preparation of instructions for IME reports;

  • Tools for assessment of permanent impairment; and

  • Application of the PIRS criteria.
