Concussion Symposium: At the Intersection of Science and Law

Posted: 11/12/2018

This special symposium is one you don’t want to miss. Chaired by the esteemed Dr. Charles H. Tator of the Canadian Concussion Centre, it will bring together clinicians, personal injury lawyers, insurance representatives, and judges to give their perspectives on one of the hottest topics in recent years—concussions.

Cutting-edge research and legal advancements come together for one compelling day. You can see the full agenda on the CPD program page, but in short, it’s a wealth of information and instruction:

  • You learn about concussion diagnosis and treatment, and the short- and long-term consequences, including impact on return to work
  • You gain an understanding of perspectives of both plaintiff and defendant when litigating concussion cases, as well as how to recognize the important factors when presenting to the court
  • You learn to identify issues relating to workers’ and insurance compensation for your client
  • You learn to define your client’s communication needs and considerations for concussion-related health effects.

That’s not all! The day ends with “Evolving Perspectives on Concussions,” a conversation between Ken Dryden, member of the Hockey Hall of Fame and former Cabinet Minister, and the Honourable R. Roy McMurtry, former Chief Justice and Attorney General.

Mark Thursday, December 6 on your calendar. Whether you work in the area of personal injury, insurance, sports law, workers’ compensation, or in any of the many related practice areas, this symposium will have something for you.
