Asbestos and environmental insurance claims present unique challenges for litigators. Unlike cases involving a single occurrence with a specific date and time (such as a car accident or a traffic violation), environmental “occurrences” can be difficult to pinpoint. Damages can accrue over a long period of time but are often not readily apparent. In addition, these suits usually involve multiple insurance companies raising complex allocation issues. Knowing how to handle this type of case can give you a significant advantage in the settlement process.
At this seminar, Ellis Medoway, Esquire and a panel of experts will guide you through the challenges you are likely to face and the terminology you will need to understand when dealing with an asbestos or environmental insurance case. What you learn will position you to settle cases you might otherwise have had to refer to others.
