When people consider weather-related litigation, they might think of slip and falls on snow and ice, motor vehicle accidents, or property damage. While these are all types of cases which forensic meteorologists investigate, climate change plays a role in many other types of cases – some you might not expect initially.
Failure to prepare in advance for weather events, either as a result of misinformation or lack of knowledge about how to do so, is the cause of many weather-related lawsuits. Proper preparation in advance of both minor and major weather hazards, as well as arming yourself with the knowledge of expected climate changes, can protect lives and property and create a more resilient community in the face of a changing climate.
Topics to be discussed include:
--Weather and Climate: How are They Related and Why Does it Matter?
--Climate Change: what is it and How is it Affecting the Legal Field?
--Hazardous Weather Safety and Preparedness: Decreasing Vulnerability and Increasing Resiliency
