Join Oswald March 4, 2015 at 3 p.m. ET for a webinar on Sports Concussion Litigation.
Presented by Noel C. Paul, a commercial litigation attorney with the law firm of Reed Smith LLP in Chicago and moderated by Ron Boynar, Business Development at Oswald, they will discuss lawsuits related to long-term effects of concussions suffered by professional athletes in competition and related insurance coverage issues.
The recent spate of class action and individual lawsuits by current and retired athletes have rocked the world of professional sports. While these lawsuits have resolved some issues, many questions related to athletes’ long-term health and legal rights remain unanswered. The webinar will summarize the current state of these lawsuits and discuss their impact on retired and current athletes—including by highlighting key limitations on when and how athletes can assert their legal rights.
The webinar also will analyze the potential for similar litigation in the future and evaluate the potential for insurance coverage for concussion-related liability.
Noel’s practice is focused on representing policyholders in resolving disputes with their insurance carriers, with a concentration on the sports, entertainment, and financial industries. He is a notable sports coverage law authority, who is regularly quoted by major media outlets including Yahoo! Sports and Risk & Insurance.
