It’s one of the worst things that can happen to a trucking company. The phone rings with someone telling you one of your trucks has been in a crash, perhaps even a deadly one.
Whether your driver is at fault or not, a crash usually means one thing – you can expect an expensive and lengthy legal battle. The good news is you can prepare before the next crash happens.
Register now for the free PrePass webinar, “Defensible Drivers: Reducing Legal Risks,” as trucking defense attorney Doug Marcello explains how to establish a trucking company legal defense for claims you know are coming after a crash.
In this one-hour webinar you will also learn:
- Steps to reduce your legal exposure and expenses when the next crash happens.
- How to establish the best legal defense possible for claims against negligent hiring, training and supervision.
