June 07, 2017 | EVENT| LEA's 86th Spring & Education Conference

Clark Schirle from Butler Weihmuller Katz Craig along with co-presenters John O’Leary and Thomas Tesoriero will be presenting in Newport, RI at LEA's 86th Spring & Education Conference on the topic of "Investigating and Managing Major Marine Structure Claims" on June 7, 2017.

Claims involving marine structures, such as docks, present unique challenges.  This presentation will provide an overview of the issues claims handlers and adjusters face when dealing with a marine structure loss. We will explain and illustrate, in detail, how these types of structures are constructed.  We will discuss the type of losses that marine structures experience, as well as the investigative tools experts, use to determine the scope and causes of these types of losses. We will elaborate on the coverage issues that may arise.  We will also examine how these types of losses are investigated, analyzed, adjusted and resolved.

We will illustrate these issues through a multi-million claim involving a partially damaged dock on Lake Michigan.  Mr. Schirle litigated this claim, and Mr. O’Leary was the expert for Mr. Schirle’s client.
