|Main Body||Viewed with suspicion in some quarters, its existence has nonetheless become recognized judicially and can attract very substantial damages. Since the Ontario Court of Appeal’s decision in DeGennaro, the importance of being thoroughly informed and prepared to navigate these files has been particularly apparent to both plaintiffs’ and defendants’ counsel. That includes knowing the essential science, the law and the strategies which are crucial to success in litigating or mediating them.|
This Osgoode Professional Development short course provides all three. A panel of diagnostic professionals – a psychiatrist, physiatrist and psychologist – will share essential information from their respective specialties concerning the characteristics, diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain. Top practitioners and expert witnesses will discuss and illuminate best practices in conducting the case and explore foundational and recent important caselaw. And distinguished judges will weigh in with their insights into what counsel are doing well and not so well, and how to improve their advocacy on behalf of their clients.
