Rhonda J. Thompson, Attorney, Thompson Coe, will be presenting on a panel at the 2016 CLM Claims and Litigation Conference in Atlanta, Georgia on May 19th and 20th. This panel will focus on the components of a litigated insurance claim and considerations in resolving the litigation. The primary, although not exclusive, context of the discussion will be on catastrophe or large volume commercial and residential property claims and the ensuing litigation, although the issues also translate to third party liability claims. The panel will identify the key and typical parts of a litigated claim (i.e, pre-suit activity, discovery, pleadings, venue, experts, trial) and will discuss the practical, financial and legal issues and aspects specific to each part of the litigated claim. Integral to the presentation is providing each participant with pre-prepared cards that constitute his or her "hand". The cards will provide hypothetical facts related to some of the issues typical to litigated claims. Based upon the "hand" the participant has been dealt, the group – as facilitated by the panel members – will discuss the strategies and considerations in defending and resolving each participant’s hypothetical litigated claim, ultimately reaching group consensus about whether the participant should "hold ‘em or fold ‘em".
