Although nuclear verdicts are real and frightening, we will examine whether this is the insurance industry's biggest threat or the steady upward creep of monetary verdicts that juries are now delivering. Our panel or insurance stakeholders will analyze the trends and reasons why jury verdicts are seemingly always increasing and offer suggestions on how to resolve cases fairly for all parties.
Our panel consists of PMT partners, industry leaders, and Greenberg School of Risk Management professors who will look at the future of insurance in New York.

- How much of a threat to the insurance industry are nuclear verdicts, runaway verdicts, and social inflation?
- Were nuclear verdicts an accident waiting to happen, or should we have anticipated this?
- Is it reasonable to prepare every accident case as a potential nuclear case, and will insurance companies pay for it?
- How can companies and insureds protect themselves?
- Are verdicts like home prices that never seem to go down?
- Does the focus on nuclear verdicts obscure and distract from resolving cases?
- Is the insurance industry helping create runaway and nuclear verdicts by failing to settle cases aggressively, and is it still true that the best case is settled?
Time: 2:00-3:30 - Followed by a Q&A
