Claims Roundtable – Litigation Involving Catastrophic Injuries – June 6 and June 13

Please register now for the next AEGIS Claims Roundtable seminar – Litigation Involving Catastrophic Injuries – which will be held on Thursday, June 6 in East Rutherford and Thursday, June 13 in Chicago.

Utility companies are frequently faced with litigation arising from catastrophic injuries suffered by members of the public and company employees. These injuries can result from events such as electrical contacts, gas explosions and exposure to toxic substances. Resultant injuries, including severe burns, brain damage, paraplegia, quadriplegia and loss of limbs, can serve as a difficult backdrop for the defense. In catastrophic injury cases, there is often an overwhelming empathy factor. Yet such injury cases are defensible, and can be mitigated, if properly prepared, investigated, negotiated and presented to a jury. This panel will address the issues surrounding the successful defense of such cases. Attendees will gain a better understanding of major injury claim management and defense tactics.

As always, you're welcome to attend AEGIS Claims Roundtables in person or by videoconference, and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits are offered. For more information about the AEGIS Claims Roundtable program, please contact Jeff Schupack by e-mail or by phone at 201.508.2658.
