McCandlish Holton Hosts 15th Annual Workers’ Compensation Seminar

On September 21st, 2016 our Workers' Compensation Practice Group hosted the 15th Annual Workers' Compensation Seminar at The Westin Richmond. This year's event was our largest ever, with more than 300 adjusters, nurse case managers, risk managers, and employers in attendance.

The event featured a full day of useful information and training regarding workers' compensation claims in and around Virginia. Topics covered this year included an overview of national trends in workers' compensation, a panel discussion on independent medical examinations in claims management, a crossfire panel featuring the competing legal perspectives of claimant and defense attorneys, and a review of recent case law from the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission.

Special thanks go to our keynote speaker, Bruce Christopher, for an enlightening presentation on the best ways to deal with difficult people. Bruce is a psychologist and humorist known for engaging audiences with practical solutions for success. You can learn more about Bruce here.
