In 2020, MPL insurers experienced an overall decrease in the number of claims filed and resolved due to the extraordinary conditions brought about by the pandemic; however, this hiatus will not continue in coming months. In this session defense attorney Malinda Matlock and plaintiff attorney Lee Livingston address where we are today and what we have learned over the past year. Livingston and Matlock will describe how attorneys initially managed the national shutdown of the court systems and its impact on existing cases as well as successful strategies for resolving existing and future claims.
