Preventing Truck Accidents
Headed to New York City for American Association for Justice annual conference. As a truck accident attorney and as a past Chair of Interstate Trucking Litigation Group, I am happy that author and trial consultants David Ball and Don Keenan will be presenting. They each provide great insight on the jury process.
While many trucking companies put safety first, too many unnecessarily put the public at risk. Too many companies allow fatigued drivers to cheat on hours, make drivers haul dangerously overloaded trailers or don’t provide policies which prevent talking on cell phones, texting, or using a computer while driving.
In addition to fighting for rights of families of those killed or injured in truck accidents, our members fight for greater safety standards and enforcement of current safety standards in the trucking industry. It is something most of us don’t think about until it is close to home.
