2014 Centennial Celebration and Annual Meeting
Claim Issues - Both Emerging and Perennial
Wednesday, November 12, 2014: 8:00 a.m.
Regent (New York Hilton Midtown)
This session will highlight claim issues - ranging from those that will not appear to subside or ever go away (like asbestos and pollution) and relatively newer issues (head injuries, settlements and law suits with the NFL). Asbestos reserve additions continue to plague the insurance industry as we witness a new surge of attorney advertising mostly for the purpose of bringing lung cancer claims against asbestos defendants. The panel will bring updates to the litigation environment affecting Asbestos and Pollution claims and the latest issues and emerging losses due to sports injury claims.
