Adam H. Fleischer Shares Insights on Opioid Liability Claims Coverage and Litigation in CLE Webinar


Adam H. Fleischer will address insurance coverage issues related to the expanding breadth of opioid liability claims in a CLE webinar Wednesday, May 22, 2019. 

As more states and local governments across the country sue large manufacturers and distributors of opioids, the scope of claims has expanded to include third-party payors, medical facilities and individual physicians. Attorneys for insurers and policyholders must determine the existence and scope of insurance coverage for these claims. 

Fleischer, who leads the nation’s first Opioid Coverage Task Force, will discuss the developing body of case law and important coverage considerations.  

A frequent speaker on this topic, Fleischer represents insurance and re-insurance clients in analyzing and evaluating complex, high-profile cases in matters including the opioid epidemic, environmental and health hazards and medical device claims. 

The Strafford live webinar, Opioid Liability Claims: Coverage and Litigation Considerations for Manufacturers, Distributors, Third-Party Payors will be Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. CT.
