After we announced our move into case management and litigation work earlier this year, we decided this would be a good time to host an event specifically for other professionals in this industry. With that in mind, we’ve like to introduce the Litigation Project Conference!
Case management and litigation work entails working with clients who have won financial settlements after suffering life-changing injuries. We look forward to welcoming people who are involved with new-build projects and refurbishments of disabled clients’ properties.
The conference will take place on Tuesday 22nd May at Wetherby Racecourse, just off the A1 motorway. Delegates will have access to the latest equipment on the market and will enjoy talks from leading solicitors, architects, physiotherapists, and equipment specialists who have worked or are currently working in case management projects.
Event organiser and case management project advisor Tristan Hulbert said:
“The demand for work in case management has grown significantly, with solicitors and occupational therapists setting up practices solely for work in litigation.
“We’re holding the Litigation Project Conference to make sure that everyone who works in this industry is on the same page, and to make sure that we are putting forward the best solutions for our clients and their varying and complex needs.”
After registration and a brief introduction, attendees will discuss patient lifting systems, the process of claims, specialist bathroom equipment, and the role of care professionals before breaking for a free hot lunch. During this time, delegates will have the opportunity to explore the exhibition stands and get their hands on the latest equipment in the industry.
We will then return for more speeches on your client database, posture in powerchairs, hydrotherapy pools, and case management from an architect’s perspective. We’re sure you’ll agree, this looks to be a jam-packed, informative day!
Our CEO, Tom Hulbert, had this to say:
“The Litigation Project Conference is a hub for all things to do with case management. Innova has been finding and supplying innovative healthcare equipment for a decade, and in doing so, we’ve become specialists in finding subtle solutions that clients will comfortable using in their own homes.”
Innova recently took over all case management and litigation work from our sister company, Yorkshire Care Equipment. With that move, we also welcomed Ramsey Hulbert to our team as a Case Management and Litigation Project Specialist. Ramsey will be presenting at the conference and will also be available to talk to all day should you have any queries about Innova’s work in litigation projects.
