Legal Webcast: Settlement Navigation

The majority of legal claims filed in civil court do not reach the trial stage and many informal settlements take place before any lawsuit is filed. It’s important that claims professionals understand how to engage in good faith settlement negotiations while still understanding the traps and pitfalls to avoid.
Partners, Cliff Wilson and Ryan McLellan of Smith Freed & Eberhard, take attendees through the settlement process in Oregon and provide best practices for settling even the most complex claims. This presentation covers the following subjects:

  • Learn how Medicare and other liens play into the settlement process
  • Learn the best practices for settling claims involving minors and wrongful death claims
  • Learn how to handle policy limits settlements involving multiple claimants
  • Learn how the risks of settling out in multiple defendant cases and some ways to protect yourself
