Standard of Care in Fire Loss Litigation

NASP Subrogation Litigation: Skills & Management Conference (New Orleans, LA) | March 22, 2018

Partner Chris Konzelmann will present Standard of Care in Fire Loss Litigation on March 22 in New Orleans, LA at the NASP Subrogation Litigation Skills & Management Conference. The majority of subrogation claims involve negligence – proving duty, breach, causation, and damages. Duty focuses on the applicable industry standard of care. This presentation will discuss: (1) the importance of locating and properly using a standard of care when pursuing a negligence claim; (2) the almost endless number of standards organizations and trade groups that promulgate standards of care for various industries; (3) how to properly use standards of care during pre-litigation settlement discussions; and (4) how to properly use standards of care during pre-trial discovery and trial. The presentation will also address defenses a subrogation target will likely raise when confronted with a proven standard of care violation.
