Claims Roundtable – Investigating and Evaluating TBI Claims: A Detailed Study in the Analysis and Defense of the Various Aspects of Brain Injury Litigation
Thursday, October 12, 2017 | East Rutherford, NJ

Claims for brain injuries, whether mild traumatic brain injuries or significant objective brain injuries, often involve damages for changes in lifestyles, personalities and employment. Recent published studies involving football players have increased public awareness of such injuries; hence, jurors frequently sympathize and can be easily persuaded to consider substantial verdicts of compensatory awards.

What can you do to accurately evaluate claims for traumatic brain injuries? What are the best tools and strategies for defending these potentially very expensive cases? What investigation and discovery is appropriate? How can you expose exaggeration and fraud? What types of expert witnesses are appropriate?

The panel will share their experiences in investigating, defending, evaluating and resolving brain injury cases. You will hear from energy industry claims professionals, in-house litigators, outside counsel and a brain injury consultant who has worked with many energy companies.

Registration will open Tuesday, September 5.  You can participate in person or via webinar.
