Safety Policies and CDL Manuals: How to Ensure They Are Not Used Against Your Clients to Establish Liability

Plaintiffs are slowly turning away from Reptile Theory and adopting a new approach focusing on company safety policies and CDL manuals to establish a “duty” the motor carrier or driver violated. Join two seasoned trucking attorneys as they delve into just how these policies/manuals are being used to establish liability in trucking cases and what defense attorneys can do from the pre-suit stages through trial to prevent a violation of a policy or manual from increasing the value of your case or the verdict award.

The registration rate is $75 for DRI members and $150 for non-members.
