The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Opioid Crisis: Emerging Litigation and Insurance Coverage Issues


New York, NY, November 10, 2018 --(PR.com)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: The Opioid Crisis: Emerging Litigation and Insurance Coverage Issues. This event is scheduled on November 29, 2018 from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm, Eastern Time.

Event Synopsis:

Several decades after the start of prescription of Opioids in the late 1990s, the Opioids Crisis has become extremely rampant. This short-term relief created long-term after-effects with the alarming number of victims and thousands of filed lawsuits. Unjust enrichment and engaging in fraudulent and negligent conduct have been the common complaint of plaintiffs. However, due to the robust defenses from the targets of these lawsuits, various insurance coverage issues also emerged.

As plaintiffs continue to seek compensatory and punitive damages, as well as statutory penalties and costs, courts are yet to have an opportunity to review the scope of an insurer's duty. Hence, insurance practitioners will continue to find cases on whether insurance policies provide coverage for these claims.

In this Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the Opioid Crisis. They will give a comprehensive overview of the legal and regulatory frameworks of this significant topic while presenting the latest trends, developments and updates on litigation and insurance coverage issues.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

The Opioid Crisis: An Overview
Current Litigation and Insurance Coverage Issues and Developments
Recent Case Law Updates Scope and Limitations
Potential Risks and Legal Pitfalls
What Lies Ahead
