LUNCH & LEARN: A CASE STUDY IN HIGH EXPOSURE TRUCKING LOSS (On-Site Attendance)

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Seeing a severe liability claim from cradle to grave gave all attendees a whole new perspective as to what drives a claim’s value.   Stuart Miller of Wilson Elser gave an excellent case study of a high exposure trucking loss all the way through verdict.  The audience saw case strategy, mock trials, mock jury deliberations, real jury selection and trial issues and a post-mortem on the actual verdict.

Stuart Miller, a Partner in the prestigious law firm of Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker, has presented this case study to varied audiences and we are pleased to have him now bring this study to the IRUA.
