Litigating in the After-Life: Defending with or against Decedents

General Litigation

Andrew LaFontaine

General Credits - 50 minutes

Andrew will provide an overview of the relevant law governing decedents involved in litigation. What happens when your client dies? What about when your opponent dies? What is a personal representative, and how do you get one? Does it matter if the death occurred before litigation starts, or during it? What is the difference between wrongful death and survival actions? What kind of damages are recoverable? How is insurance affected? What about the statute of limitations? Andrew will answer these questions, and provide practical tips for litigating cases with one or more deceased parties. ******************************************************* “Any opinions offered herein are solely the opinions of the speakers and do not represent the opinions of State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company”
