Presented by Pillinger Miller Tarallo and St. John’s Tobin Center for Executive Education, its Maurice R. GreenbergSchool of Risk Management, Insurance and Actuarial Science (GSRM).
Our second conference series will examine how settling personal injury cases has been affected both during and after the pandemic. Instead of the steady stream of cases going to court and eventually settling on the eve of trial, cases are stalled. The courts have been closed or operating at significantly reduced capacity for almost a year. Also, a reduction in judges, court personnel, and jury trial limitations because of COVID-19 protocols has considerably slowed personal injury settlements.
Our conference webinar will examine this from four perspectives: defense, plaintiffs, judicial, and insurance. Our panel will consist of the defense attorney perspective, a plaintiff’s attorney, the judicial perspective, and the insurance company perspective. We will look at what has been the panelists’ experience during the past year and what changes they envision once the pandemic is over as we return to a “new normal. “
