Identifying and Handling Products Liability and Trucking Cases
This half-day seminar offers practitioners insight into spotting, investigating and litigating complex product liability and trucking cases and effectively handling settlement planning issues across their caseload. Register today to ensure you don't miss these helpful tips: 
• If your car accident case has catastrophic injuries and facts that don’t add up, there may be a product defect claim at hand. Learn tactics needed to efficiently analyze accident facts to determine whether a potential products defect case may exist and how to preserve necessary evidence.
• Hear about the complex area of trucking litigation and why any truck case, regardless of injuries, may become a significant liability case and should be treated as such by both defense and plaintiff’s counsel.
• Be prepared at resolution time with a brief discussion of Medicare, lien resolution, set-asides and other settlement planning options.
