DRI Webinar – Defending Lead Cases: Strategies and Tactics for a Trending Toxic Tort

Defending Lead Cases: Strategies and Tactics for a Trending Toxic Tort

Wednesday, October 25th • 1:00pm – 2:30pm (Central) • Hosted by DRI

Please join DRI’s Toxic Tort & Environmental Law Committee for an informative webinar featuring Susan E. Smith, Partner at Goldberg Segalla; James B. Slaughter of Beveridge & Diamond; Patrick T. Connor, Technical Director at CONNOR; and Marc Scarcella and Adam Love, Ph.D. of Roux Associates. Personal injury claims from lead exposure involve very serious allegations of permanent brain injuries to children with huge damage claims. Fueled by the Flint, Michigan crisis, lead lawsuits are rapidly expanding from lead paint claims to alleged lead exposure from drinking water, groundwater, soil, and airborne media. This presentation will highlight the leading cases, and current exposure and causation theories. The panel of experienced lead defense trial lawyers and experts will explain the legal and scientific defenses to lead claims and damages. They will also review the complex web of statutes and regulations governing lead and how clients can limit their risk of lead claims.
