Ethically Maneuvering the “Eighteen Wheels of Justice”
This “Lunch and Learn” webinar will explore ethical issues arising in cases involving commercial motor vehicle crashes, stemming from the unique relationship between motor carriers, drivers, owner/operators, freight forwarders, brokers, and insurers. This webinar will discuss the importance of defining who the “client” is and how to navigate ethical problems when interacting with drivers and motor carrier personnel. The speakers will discuss identifying and handling conflicts of interest arising in trucking cases, information sharing and confidentiality, attorney competence, and
considerations of fairness in aggressively defending your trucking client.
