Resolving ERISA Liens Live Webinar CLE

Resolving ERISA Liens Continuing Legal Education Webinar

Since the Supreme Court’s 2006 decision in Sereboff, claims made by ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) qualified plans against third party recoveries has been a growing area of attention for trial attorneys and their clients. While these plans can create strong rights of reimbursement, it is essential to understand how and when these rights are created. Furthermore, in the wake of the Sixth Circuit’s 2009 opinion in Longaberger v. Kolt, the obligation of an attorney to an ERISA plan has been a hotly contested area. Get the latest decisions on this and other important areas of ERISA.

The Ethics of Confidentiality Agreements Live Webinar CLE

The Ethics of Confidentiality Agreements Live Webinar CLE

The Ethics of Confidentiality Agreements

Secrecy agreements at the end of a civil lawsuit are commonplace. But as leading attorney Patrick Malone explains, they are usually unethical, almost always bad for the plaintiff, and bad for the plaintiff attorney’s practice. The Rules of Professional Conduct give plaintiffs’ lawyers the weapons to fight back against defendants who insist on overbroad confidentiality agreements.

Overcoming "Minor Impact" Defenses in Auto Cases Live Webinar CLE

Overcoming "Minor Impact" Defenses in Auto Cases Live Webinar CLE
Many motor vehicle cases involve cases with "minimal" vehicle damage. In the early 1990s State Farm, Allstate and others started handling these claims differently as "minor impact" or "Minor Impact Soft Tissue" (MIST) cases.  Insurers started making little or no offers on these cases, despite US government data showing people are being injured in these crashes.  As Allstate's profits soared the rest of the auto insurers followed.  Lawyers started rejecting these cases, despite a huge number of people being injured every year in these crashes.

Trial Guides Intensive Motor Vehicle Case CLE

Trial Guides Intensive Motor Vehicle Case CLE
Recent statistics from the insurance industry show that 80% of all motor vehicle claims settle at $5,000 or less, 90% settle for $15,000 or less, and that less than 1% settle for $100,000 or more.(1)

Trial Guides believes these case values do not reflect a true state of the severity of crash injuries, but instead a failure by attorneys to fully understand the claim process and the injuries involved in these collisions. We believe it's time to face claim underpayments head on. So, as the nation's leading publishing company for plaintiff's lawyers, we asked ourselves this question. How can we radically change the way personal injury lawyers handle motor vehicle cases with one CLE?
