Insurance Institute Virtual Symposium West - Social Inflation: The biggest emerging risk you need to know aboutAug 12, 2021TorontoKadey B.J. Schultz

Social Inflation: The biggest emerging risk you need to know about

“Social Inflation” describes the trend of rising insurance costs due to increased litigation, plaintiff-friendly judgments, and higher jury awards. Traditionally, the Canadian insurance industry has been more sheltered, ‘peering over the fence’ in amazement at U.S. counterparts dealing with heavy-hitting litigation awards and the general inclination toward legal action. But times are changing and our shelter is under theat. If litigation costs in Canada are creeping up, what are the causes, what does this mean for the industry, and what should insurance professionals be considering now to succeed in the future?

Join our panel – bringing knowledge and expertise from the legal, claims, and broker perspectives – providing the very latest updates on the social inflation trend, and just how concerned stakeholders in the insurance industry should be. And as we grow our understanding of the issue, the panel will guide us through which industry segments will be most affected, as well as discussing potential risk mitigation strategies, in order to prepare for a more litigious future.

Breakout Two (11:25 am - 12:15 pm) - Planning for Absences from Your Practice

At some point in your legal career, you may want or need to take time away from your practice. Whether

for parental or mental health leave, illness or medical leave, or to be a caregiver for others, the need

to step away from law can be expected (or unexpected). There are steps that you can – and should –

take to prepare for this type of situation. Find out how you can use appropriate systems when the need

for a leave arises. Hear about how you can reduce the risk and anxiety that may come with taking an

extended leave from practice. Hear what our speakers have done to keep their practices going when

they were faced with these challenges themselves.
