Nuclear Verdicts® in a Post-Pandemic World

Lynn Allen and Sitar Bhatt
The COVID-19 pandemic has irreversibly changed the trial landscape.  As a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, jurors are more likely to consider themselves vulnerable to accidents or disasters, are more likely to make decisions based on fear or anger, and are more likely to think of themselves as “guardians of the community,” obligated to punish wrongdoers.  This change in mindset, paired with changes in the law and increased mistrust in corporations, threatens to increase Nuclear Verdicts™ in a post-pandemic world.  Tyson & Mendes is at the forefront of nuclear verdict defense, and our methods for defending against Nuclear Verdicts™ are more important than ever.  This webinar covers new challenges attorneys and adjusters will face while defending corporate clients, as well as innovative litigation techniques to help mitigate these issues.

All while most employers face potential exposure arising out of employee safety, layoffs, or rapid efforts to move their entire workforce remote. This session will explore the emerging issues that could lead to Nuclear Verdicts™, the exposures for the insurance industry, and how insurance defenses can prevail in a post-COVID-19 world.
