Itching and Twitching: Litigation Trends for Talc, Fibromyalgia, PTSD and Other Emerging Risks  

Presented by the Agent & Broker, Claims, and Regulatory & Legislative Interest Groups

Tuesday, March 27, 2018  2:00 pm Eastern
(note: a previous email incorrectly stated the date as 3/28)

What it’s about:

We all remember the asbestos craze of the late 20th century, when insureds and insurers realized that a serious health hazard was surrounding them in the very tiles, drywall and ceilings of their homes and workplaces. Since then, insurance professionals have been continuously on the lookout for the next risk and how to protect insureds.

This is a "must-attend" webinar if you haven't yet heard about the following three emerging risks and their litigation trends:

  • Talc: a potentially dangerous mineral being questioned for its ongoing use in both cosmetics and building materials

  • Fibromyalgia: a chronic pain syndrome that is shaking up personal injury litigation

  • PTSD: a difficult to define mental disorder at the center of today's mental health debate

Two lawyers will share their first-hand experience with these little-known risks and how litigation trends will impact insurance professionals.
