Avoiding Tunnel Vision when Dealing with Workers Compensation Matters -
an analysis of the past 3½ years of claims and how we can do better.

South Australian claims and complaints highlight the risks when acting for vulnerable clients
with uncertain prognoses in an area of law that is rapidly developing. To ensure no options are
overlooked and to reduce settlement regret, we need to; stand back, look at the whole picture,
investigate diligently, and advise and document thoroughly. This session also contains video
input from The Honourable Justice Steven Dolphin on how to advise clients when the law is uncertain.
