This session will explore legal considerations in a damages analysis related to foreseeability. Foreseeability on first pass may seem like a relatively straightforward analysis, but a further examination of case law and various facts and circumstances demonstrates that a foreseeability analysis can be complex, and may have a dramatic impact on a damages analysis. This session will explore some of these complexities, using case law to help the practitioner better understand how the courts may view foreseeability.
