Fowler Presents Webinar for CLM

Joe Fowler, managing partner of Fowler Hirtzel McNulty & Spaulding presented a webinar on May 3rd  for The Claims and Litigation Management Alliance. The webinar, presented with Cara Wright from Zurich North America, was titled, An Overview of the Transportation Industry’s Injury of Choice This year: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) and Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS.)

In recent years, diagnoses of traumatically induced RSD, also known as complex regional pain have been increasing. Plaintiff’s expert physicians often rely on RSD to explain alleged extraordinary pain that is out of alignment with diagnosis. As the diagnosis of RSD is largely subjective, cases often involve a battle of the experts. Defending these cases requires a thoughtful blend of anticipation and preparation. The webinar discussed strategies to proactively defend these difficult cases.

The CLM is the largest professional association in the insurance industry with a membership of more than 35,000 professionals. In the claims resolution and litigation management industries.
