Have you ever defended an insurance subrogation case where the insurance company sued in the name of the insured because the insured paid a nominal deductible? The plaintiff’s case is much more sympathetic if the jury believes the individual plaintiff suffered the loss, instead of the insurance company. We will discuss case law and strategies for dealing with this situation at the ACMIE break-out session at the DRI Products Liability Meeting in New Orleans. Please write a post here if you have any experience with this issue, or if you are aware of any effective strategies or case law on point.

ACMIE SLG Break-out

Posted on March 5, 2010 03:12 by Nick Pappas

If you have ever defended warning labels on construction, agricultural or industrial equipment, you won't want to miss the ACMIE break-out session in Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 7 at 3:45. Our main presentation will be a panel discussion by Wendy Dawson of Caterpillar, Mark Kircher of Quarles & Brady and Dr. Tyler Kress of BEST Engineering. The panel will discuss the impact of "pictogram only" warning decals on product liability litigation. Mark will give the perspective of a trial lawyer who has defended the design of ACMIE products all over the country. Wendy will share her thoughts as in-house counsel for one of the largest construction and agricultural equipment manufacturers in the world. And Tyler will add his perspective as an expert with experience testifying in litigation and drafting warnings. This talented panel will give a unique perspective on this important product liability issue. We look forward to seeing you in Vegas!
