Course Description

This program was recorded on August 21, 2019

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving claims 9 lives per day. 25% of driving accidents are caused by texting and driving, leading to about 390,000 injuries every year. These shocking statistics means that the average personal injury attorney will likely encounter several distracted driving cases in their career. So, what is the proper way to prepare these cases and get them ready for trial? Ron K. Cheng will be presenting on subjects to get you thinking about basic issues that may affect your distracted driving case.
