Hot, Spicy, and Burnt! Understanding Restaurant Fires

When:

March 21 – 22, 2024

Where:

NASP 2024 Spring Conference

Hershey Hotel, Hershey, PA

Speakers:

Ryan Woody  (MWL’s Hartford Office)

Richard Schuster (MWL’s Hartford Office)

Chip Barnhart (Barnhart Consulting Services)

What:

Restaurant fires can be devastating, and subrogation challenges abound. Critical evidence must be inspected and preserved, but the clock ticks loudly as a restaurant loses money each day it remains closed. Rounding up parties quickly is not easy, and determining and proving causation can be difficult and almost always requires highly technical expertise. If you make a case, you then must deal with proving lost business income in a COVID or post-COVID setting. In this Michelin-star-worthy presentation, the nation’s two foremost restaurant fire suppression system experts join experienced trial attorneys to familiarize attendees with restaurant fire fundamentals from both legal and scientific perspectives. Using case specific examples and video footage for a compelling experience, the presenters will arm attendees with tools to hit the ground ready to pursue subrogation when a restaurant fire occurs.
