The Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance Reparations Act passed into law in 1973, and removed significant elements of claims arising from automobile accidents from regular tort law into what have become specialized court and arbitration proceedings.
Even as serious injury bodily injury claims continue to dominate civil court filings in the greater New York City metropolitan area, the interplay between no-fault, loss transfer, uninsured motorist, and Workers’ Compensation claims, and how they can affect bodily injury actions, is not always readily apparent. Even practitioners well-versed in these areas can fall prey to additional issues that arise when a municipality, public authority, or emergency vehicle is involved.
Our expert panel will provide a background for practitioners unfamiliar with these areas of law, along with analysis of recent jurisprudential, legislative, and regulatory developments that will also benefit practitioners experienced in these areas.
Panelists will include experienced practitioners representing all sides of the issues as well as arbitration and/or judicial representatives to provide further objective analysis and ethical considerations.
