MMK’s Jerry Melchiode will speak at “Trips, Slips & Major Mishaps: Personal Injury 2018,” which is a CLE seminar co-sponsored by the LSBA Civil Law & Litigation Section. The CLE will be held at Hyatt Centric French Quarter Hotel, at 800 Rue Iberville, New Orleans, Louisiana, on September 7, 2018.
About the CLE:
Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Causes for the injury may fall under intentional, negligence, or strict liability. A personal injury case determines whether the defendant is liable for the damages sustained, as well as the nature and extent of the damages. This seminar will cover different aspects of a personal injury case, including case evaluation, experts, motions, mediation, and tips for winning your case. Ethics and professionalism credit included.
