The 2nd Annual ABYC Marine Law Symposium is a premier training event that will prepare you to navigate the legal aspects of recreational boating accidents.
Learn from 5 interesting and relevant accidents and lawsuits that have implications for dealers, manufacturers, surveyors, accident investigators, expert witnesses, and attorneys
Marine law enforcement will walk through the types of accidents they respond to, responsibilities, reporting, what experts/attorneys have access to (and don’t have access to), and what will they provide if they are on the stand
Insurance experts and manufacturers representatives will discuss the nuances of the relationships you have (or need) to protect you in the event of a lawsuit or errors/omissions in your reporting
Learn the language of litigators and insurance companies.
To our News Week readers, this is an American event and to know better if this has value to our Canadian readers, we asked Michael Vollmer for his assessment, having been very involved in boating safety and marine accident investigations for many years. He told us, “I attended last year and thought it was wonderful; not focused on the law per se, but rather on collecting evidence, assessing it and developing a plausible explanation of the events.”
For Canadians in the insurance, boat charter and rental, legal and marine industry, this could be a very valuable learning opportunity. Learn more at the ABYC website: www.abycinc.org or register at http://marine-law-symposium.webflow.io
