Chronic pain cases are amongst the most complex and challenging types of cases that a personal injury lawyer might handle.

Chronic pain cases frequently combine complex medico-legal issues with challenging factual scenarios, not to mention plenty of traps for the unwary litigator!

This webinar aims to identify the key considerations you will need to have in mind, as well as offering practical tips and solutions for some of the common issues and problems that can arise.
