Course Description

This program was recorded on June 10, 2021

Trucking and bus cases should not be handled like another large auto crash case. Large trucks and buses are governed by special safety regulations and industry standards as well as complicated insurance and governmental issues. There are sources of information and evidence unique to these types of cases that can easily be overlooked if not familiar with this world. This lecture breaks down the complex world of commercial transportation from the plaintiff's perspective, providing practical information you need to know and identifying some of the biggest mistakes you need to avoid when handling trucking and bus crash claims.
