The personal injury settlement process is fraught with danger for lawyers who are unaware of the legal implications of not accounting for all possible liens on the proceeds of personal injury settlements and judgments.
Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Personal injury attorney Philip L. Bradfield, director of the law firm’s Virginia litigation department at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, PC, is speaking at a seminar offered by the National Business Institute (NBI) September 15, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza Virginia Beach. “Managing Liens and Subrogation in Auto Accident Litigation” is a topic Bradfield is passionate about.
“The personal injury settlement process is fraught with danger for lawyers who are unaware of the legal implications of not accounting for all possible liens on the proceeds of personal injury settlements and judgments,” says Bradfield. “If all liens are not taken into account when settling personal injury cases, it can be disastrous for the client and the lawyer.”
Bradfield says there is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about liens among lawyers, paralegals and insurance adjusters. He sees this course as an opportunity to share the latest developments in this area of law and to help keep clients and law firms out of trouble. Bradfield is one of four speakers at the day-long seminar.
Attorney Bradfield has been litigating personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability, medical malpractice, FELA, subrogation, insurance coverage and workers compensation cases for more than 20 years. During that time he has represented plaintiffs, defendants and insurance companies, gaining valuable experience he plans to share with seminar participants. Bradfield has also served as a pro bono attorney volunteer for Central Virginia Legal Aid and as an instructor for other continuing education seminars.
The NBI offers seminars providing continuing education credits to professionals including legal and insurance professionals. Examples of upcoming programs feature rules of evidence and personal injury 101. For more information or to register for NBI seminars, visit the organization’s website or call 800-930-6182.
