Strategy - Bullseye

What:

This is Part 2 of our new Property Subrogation Webinar Series!

Let’s face it, large property losses ($1M+ or even $500k+) rarely get paid (unless at deep discount) without litigation. When a factory burns down and incurs millions in lost business, at-fault parties are not exactly lining up to pay what they owe. It is not enough on the largest claims to be right or to have a theory; you must know how to successfully litigate that claim. And, when you litigate using outside counsel, how do you know if they are doing a good job? How do you know they are not underselling your claim? In this 2nd webinar in our large property loss series, we explore these issues, providing attendees with concrete strategies that work in litigation and that can used as metrics to determine if your attorneys are performing or not.

Cost: Free to Attend

** This webinar will NOT provide CE or CLE, but it WILL provide valuable information for carriers who handle these types of claims.

Autonomous Car Litigation

What:

Autonomous vehicles will improve road safety and reduce injuries, death, and property damage. The average size of claims, however, could increase significantly, meaning fewer fender benders and more catastrophic injuries and deaths, subrogation of which will require immediate investigation, experts, and product liability lawyers to subrogate these losses. Simple auto accidents will now become infinitely complex product defect cases involving possible product defects. Claims professionals will need to become familiar with the technology involved and develop a relationship with qualified automotive experts. As H.G. Wells famously said, “Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature’s inexorable imperative.”
