Tyler Schwein Selected to Speak at NASP’s 2013 Annual Conference—“Set Sail for Subro”

Arvada, Colorado (April 15, 2013) – Tyler Schwein, E.I.T, Pie Consulting & Engineering Forensic Specialist, will speak at the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP) 2013 Annual Conference “Set Sail for Subro” happening November 3-6, 2013 in San Diego, California. Known as the premier subrogation organization in the industry, NASP provides legal continuing education, training, and networking opportunities for insurance claims professionals, litigators, experts, collection vendors, and other service providers.

Tyler will lend his construction equipment expertise in a presentation entitled, “Construction Equipment Liability: Misused and Defective Products” highlighting:

  • Hazardous equipment and tools commonly used in the construction industry
  • General product liability litigation
    1. Design flaw
    2. Manufacturing defect
    3. Operator misuse
  • Proactive design of equipment and tools
    1. Warning labels
    2. Safety Switches
    3. Guards
  • Subrogation potential regarding bodily injury and property losses
  • Case studies investigated by Pie Consulting & Engineering

There are a number of construction products out there that are dangerous by their design, and may not include effective means to protect, educate, or warn the end user. By failing to do so, tool manufacturers unnecessarily put both people and property at risk, oftentimes with disastrous results. Subrogation potential depends highly on these factors, and how well a manufacturer attempts to mitigate the effects of these dangers.” – Tyler Schwein, E.I.T, Forensic Specialist

WHEN: November 5, 2-013 3:45PM – 5:00PM

WHERE: Hilton San Diego Bayfront – San Diego, CA
