Location: Online Webcast
Service or Industry: Mechanical

3D printing is coming, and it’s coming fast. Gone are the days where things could only be manufactured by specific processes and specialised workshops. Soon, there will be a 3D printer in every household. This technology has so rapidly evolved, that even NASA’s Orion spacecraft has been built using 3D printed parts. The purpose of this webinar is to highlight the past, current and future potent...

3D printing is coming, and it’s coming fast. Gone are the days where things could only be manufactured by specific processes and specialised workshops. Soon, there will be a 3D printer in every household. This technology has so rapidly evolved, that even NASA’s Orion spacecraft has been built using 3D printed parts. The purpose of this webinar is to highlight the past, current and future potential uses of these techniques. In addition we aim to highlight the impending downfalls of using these methods without the appropriate knowledge and experience, where the likely failures might arise from and what to look for when involved with a claim involving 3D printing. 

This class will provide an overview of the processes defined as 3D printing and additive manufacturing and their potential effects in the industrial world across diverse areas such as aerospace, automotive, healthcare and manufacturing.

This course is designed for insurance claim adjusters, in-house counsel and legal professionals handling claims resulting from vehicle accidents. Vehicle accidents can be extremely catastrophic in terms of cost and liability, therefore it is important for claims professionals involved with vehicle claims to fully understand how to incorporate Vehicle Accident Reconstruction (VAR) into their claims and litigation management strategies. Following participation in this course, attendees will develop an understanding of how experts determine pre-impact vehicle speeds, seat belt usage, and head light /turn signal illumination at impact. This is beneficial for insurance claims professionals when determining liability and recovery options.

Case studies involving VAR and the use of digital forensics in distracted driving cases are discussed in this webinar and focus on the urgency and importance of preserving potentially critically pertinent evidence including the information that should be gathered from cell phones before, during and immediately after an accident. We will discuss how that can be used by insurance professionals and attorneys when adjusting and litigating these types of VAR claims.

An ACTAR Certified vehicle accident reconstructionist will also expose attendees to advanced hardware and software technology used to assist in reconstructing heavy truck, passenger vehicle, motorcycle, and pedestrian collisions.

CLE: Undetermined Cause is the Beginning, Not the End
Webinar

Date: Jan 09, 2020
Location: Online Webcast
Service or Industry: Fire, Fire Investigation

Often fires are deemed “undetermined,” particularly by local authorities whose primary task is determining if a crime has occurred. This presentation will provide tools to analyze potential Subrogation and recovery theories in such matters, including addressing the detection, suppression, and spread of fire.

Often fires are deemed “undetermined,” particularly by local authorities whose primary task is determining if a crime has occurred. This presentation will provide tools to analyze potential Subrogation and recovery theories in such matters, including addressing the detection, suppression, and spread of fire. The presentation will also examine common construction issues and code violations, building monitoring and security, and other items unrelated to the cause of the fire that often arise and may present or affect opportunities for recovery. We will focus on the cause of the damage rather than the cause of the fire. In addition, we will also address potential theories of recovery in arson matters, as well as fires where the origin is clear and the ignition source is considered “probable” based upon a comprehensive investigation. Careless smoking fires and claims against cigarette manufacturers will be addressed. Finally, we will discuss the possible theories relating to control of the premises of origin and/or “res ipsa loquitor”.

A surplus of hot button topics exists within the construction defect industry. A sampling of these topics will be separated and discussed, using real-world case studies. The class is designed for both adjusters and attorneys and will touch on current issues with extrapolation models, allocation, and inference – looking at the subjective versus scientific approach.  Also to be discussed include issues with construction defects attributed to the unqualified and inexperienced workforce, defects arising during the design phase, the use of alternate means, as well as a discussion on dealing with the document dump.  The course will include a fluid discussion between a construction defect attorney and expert as the above topics, and more will be reviewed.
