Bodily Injury News: Summer 2015 edition
This edition of BI News contains articles on recent legal decisions concerning longshore workers (page 3 and page 8); heavy weather incidents (page 5); medical consolidation (page 9) and troubling news for cruise line operators with the groundbreaking Franza ruling - page 10.
Bodily Injury News is the bi-annual newsletter of the Thomas Miller Americas’ Bodily Injury Team. The topics it addresses are highly relevant to all our Members worldwide given more than half of the Club’s personal injury claims over $100,000 are brought in the American courts.
We welcome your feedback on the topics we cover as well as suggestions on subjects to address in future issues. Please send your comments and ideas to Louise Livingston at firstname.lastname@example.org
