Discussion will include solutions and valuable insights including that Social inflation continues to plague litigation, resulting in unprecedented verdict values across the country. In addition, litigation funding is increasing in popularity and more prevalent in all types of lawsuits. As a result, the insurance industry is evolving its claims handling philosophy to better understand and manage these issues.
