LegalPalooza is a crash course on how to make sure you don't get slammed with a huge settlement in the event of a crash. It will be led by the nation's leading transportation defense law firm: Scopelitis. 






WHO SHOULD ATTEND? This workshop is for leadership-level executives at a trucking company. 

WHEN IS IT?: The workshop is on February 26th from 9:30am until 1:00pm.

WHERE IS IT?  The workshop will take place in Milwaukee at The Harley-Davidson Museum: 400 W Canal St, Milwaukee, WI 53201.

Accidents Happen – How To Get the Best Resolution Possible
BEST PRACTICES: How a rapid response can help minimize claim costs.
We will take a look at the first step to resolving claims by reviewing policies and procedures put in place before any accident, as well as the effect of the rapid response on bringing the cost of claims down.
THE IMPACT OF VENUE: How the law of comparative and contributory negligence in each state alters the value of a claim.
We will discuss negligence law generally and, more specifically, how the laws change depending on the location of your accident.   We will review examples of how these varying laws change the potential value of case and how the information can be used to properly triage accident claims. 
TECHNOLOGY UPDATE: How dashcams and inward facing cameras change the value of your case.
We will provide a technology update with special consideration of the implementation and effect of dashcams (inward and outward) on the value of claims, pre-suit resolutions, and litigation.
CLAIM VALUATION: How to value a claim and get reasonable settlements.
We will discuss all the factors that go into claim valuation and how to use this information to get claims settled at the right price.
