The Product Liability & Complex Torts Practice Group and the Latin American Regional Members are hosting a joint webinar on July 19th at 12:00pm central, entitled "Four lawyers walk into a bar...and someone gets injured. Place Matters."
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:
This webinar will take you through a hypothetical scenario to see how laws throughout Latin America differ.
An American company manufactures a fuel container that is misused by a consumer who purchased the product at an authorized retailer in your country. As a result of that misuse (contrary to the warning on the can), the consumer is burned over 50% of her body. Her medical bills are equivalent to US$500,000. She wants to bring a lawsuit to recover her past medical expenses, her future medical expenses, her lost wages, money for her pain and suffering, the value of her lost relations with her spouse, the cost of a future life care plan and also punitive damages because the alleged defect was known to the manufacture at the time the product was sold the product.
