Webinar Title:  “Observations from the Trenches of Truck Wreck Litigation”

A major truck accident lawsuit is an experience many people would choose not to be a part of. But trucking companies, logistics companies, freight forwarders, brokers, risk managers, and the insurance industry find themselves dealing with such lawsuits  more often than they would like.  Trial attorney James W. Bryan of Nexsen Pruet, P.L.L.C., is a member of NCTA and has been defense counsel in the trenches of these lawsuits in North Carolina for many years.  This webinar will be an opportunity to hear Mr. Bryan’s observations about what to expect in truck wreck litigation from start to finish.  He will put himself in your shoes, explain the nuances of the lawsuit, and give you some tips for dealing with your next truck accident case.

Discussion Topics Include:

  • The first few days after the accident – do’s and don’t’s
  • Getting your records in order – the proactive approach
  • What steps are key for the defense after the lawsuit is filed
  • The importance of expert witnesses
  • Having you deposition taken
  • Settlement negotiation strategies
  • Surviving the harrowing experience of a jury trial
