Does Injury Compensation Cause Harm?

11 presentations. 4.5 hours of content.

This is the full programme with videos and slides of the Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) forum titled “Does Injury Compensation Cause Harm?”. Held in Melbourne Australia on 2 December 2015.

Please note that I am not affiliated with ISCRR, I’m just compiling these videos in an easy to access way.

I was fortunate to attend this session and to meet other likeminded people who are looking for a better way of doing things. I hope you get as much value out of these videos as I did on the day.
