Bent to co-chair Accident Benefits Spring Symposium
On April 19, London personal injury lawyer Maia Bent will co-chair the full-day Accident Benefits Spring Symposium, presented by Canadian Defence Lawyers.
Speakers at the event will explore topics such as the tips and pitfalls in the accident benefits mediation process — both via private mediations and through the Licence Appeals Tribunal — and how to successfully resolve claims, as well as privacy, information sharing and claims handling issues to be on the lookout for.
In addition to co-chairing the symposium, Bent, partner with Lerners LLP, will facilitate a panel discussion featuring "procedural tips and issues at the Licence Appeals Tribunal."
Other sessions will discuss issues related to independent medical exams and medical-legal assessments, recent accident benefits accounting issues and cases, a caselaw update, and an interactive demonstration of what happens during a physiatry assessment.
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency, located at 370 King St. W., in Toronto.
