“Constitutional Changes in the Spine and the impact on damages” by Mr Nigel Gummerson, Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon followed by Vilma Vodanovic and Bronia Hartley

Mr Gummerson will talk primarily about degenerative disc disease and the natural history of the degenerative spine but also the lower energy injury to the spine (commonly seen arising from accidents at work) and how this may impact on the long term natural history, from both a purely medical and also medico-legal perspective.  This will be followed by a talk by Vilma and Bronia on how to deal with personal injury claims where the ongoing effects from degenerative changes overlap with those arising from the injury sustained in the accident and how best to maximise recoverable damages.

An invaluable series of talks for all PI practitioners giving an opportunity to seek advice directly from the medical experts.
