The Challenges of Using Social Media in Workers' Compensation Claims
|Date / Time:
You will benefit from this topic by learning about the number of procedural, ethics, and evidentiary issues that can impact obtaining and using social media as evidence in workers' compensation cases.
More and more people use social media to document and exhibit their behaviors, and to communicate their thoughts, opinions, and beliefs in text format, and through photos and videos. Given the number of legal and ethical issues that arise when procuring and using such evidence, you will obtain an advantage in your practice by becoming familiar with the issues that arise in this area of the law.
There will be a discussion of social media practices that other attorneys have used that have either enhanced or harmed their cases or their legal practices. The materials and discussion will help you undertake the process of creating your own customized case preparation processes and techniques for using social media evidence in workers' compensation cases.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
