Session Description: 

This Webinar will explore legal theories and standards that courts may employ when considering torts occurring during gig-economy transactions. The use of gig economy platforms, markets in which individuals obtain services or rent assets from each other using technology platforms, has grown at an explosive rate. Torts arising during gig economy transactions are becoming a regular occurrence. It will be essential that litigators and risk managers understand the legal theories that may be used to allocate tort liability in the event of an accident or injury.


Who Should Attend? 

  • Anyone hoping to better understand the gig economy and developing theories of tort liability.
  • Anyone with a practice that may involve motor vehicle accident litigation.
  • Anyone working with a company that uses gig-economy workers.

What will you learn? 

  • What is the gig economy and what types of tort claims arise from gig economy transactions.
  • How to analyze the question of worker classification in the context of the gig economy.
  • What are the theories of vicarious and direct liability are relevant to gig economy tort litigation.
  • What is the relevant regulatory framework and how does this framework impact tort litigation.
  • What does the future hold for the gig economy and how will regulatory and legislative changes impact liability issues.
