Ganan & Shapiro Fall Seminar 2018

On November 8, 2018, Ganan & Shapiro will present a complimentary seminar, “Solutions for Challenges in Illinois Workers’ Compensation 2018.”  This seminar will cover medical and settlement issues, from both workers’ compensation and employment law perspectives.  The morning session will focus on medical issues, including a presentation by Dr. Howard Konowitz of Comprehensive Pain Management Group on Opioids and Pain Management, in which he will discuss what has become a national crisis in the over-use of narcotics to treat pain, and offer alternative solutions for pain management. The morning session will also include presentations on Medical Marijuana, Employment and Workers’ Compensation Law, and a panel discussion on Controlling Medical Costs.


In the afternoon, Ben Basista of Dickie, McCamie & Chilcote, an expert on Medicare issues, will offer a presentation on Medicare Set-Aside Considerations. The afternoon will also feature a discussion on Settlement Considerations: Releases and Resignations and will close with a discussion on recent developments at the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission.
