Learning Objectives: In this webinar, we’ll examine a fantastic result for a design professional who was sued by its restaurant-client. The insured provided engineering services related to the construction of a restaurant and was sued in connection with alleged $250,000 in damages for water damage and flooding to an adjacent apartment complex. After mediation was unsuccessful, the case was litigated and the jury determined the insured had no responsibility for any damages and rendered a verdict against the insured’s client for more than $1 million. We will examine the claim, factors that impacted the litigation, use of experts, and lessons learned. In addition, we will explore defense counsel’s behind the scenes strategy with the insured as the trial proceeded.
Join us for this valuable 90-minute seminar where you and your staff will also have an opportunity to:
Learn about the background of the case and events leading up to the claim;
Discuss the dispute resolution process and strategy employed during trial;
Explore lessons learned from the case;
Ask questions to the presenters; and
Qualify for premium and continuing education (C.E.) credits (as applicable).
