Wilcox to Deliver Presentation on Survivorship Claims
John Wilcox will co-lead a presentation on survivorship claims entitled, “The Expanding Survivorship Claim” at the USLAW NETWORK Transportation Law Exchange from Feb. 2-3 at the Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV.
“When an accident causes someone to lose their life, claims for both wrongful death and survivorship are not uncommon. Yet, the plaintiff’s bar lately appears to be getting more creative with the types of damages that can be recovered for survivorship. In particular, we are seeing claims of pre-impact fear and the use of experts to address very brief periods of survivorship. In this session, we will discuss these tactics and how to address them from the outset of a lawsuit through trial.”
