Description:

Statistics tell us that 6 million people are involved in auto accidents each year – and over 2 million of these accidents cause injuries. Although insurance is mandatory in most states, some drivers may not be in compliance. As an attorney it is vital for you to have a thorough understanding of the laws governing uninsured and underinsured motorists. If a client came through your door asking you to represent them, would you be able to help? Don't wait until it's too late to find out.

At this convenient program, our knowledgeably faculty will share with you the information needed to help potential clients. Once you've completed this seminar, you'll be familiar with both the coverage and claim aspects of uninsured and underinsured motorist cases. This area of law is unique, and you'll need to stay up to date on the special issues involved so you aren't caught unprepared. Keep cases out of court whenever possible with solid methods for settlement and mediation. If a settlement strategy doesn't work, give yourself the best chance of success using solid trial strategies. Don't make these cases any harder than they have to be – reserve your space today!

This basic-to-intermediate seminar is designed for attorneys, especially those involved in the areas of insurance, personal injury and litigation, who want to get up to date on the latest UM/UIM laws.
