DRI3501 - Challenging Plaintiff’s Use of Federal Regulations to Bolster Negligence Claims


Standard: $50.00

Description

This “Lunch and Learn” webinar will provide an in-depth look at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (“FMCSRs”) relating to driver qualification, hours of service, and equipment maintenance and will address how such regulations are used by plaintiffs to establish “safety rules” that bolster their negligence claims. Attendees will also learn about recent court decisions analyzing the extent to which an alleged violation of the FMCSRs by a motor carrier or driver can support a plaintiff’s negligence claims and will take away practical pointers on how to best combat a plaintiff’s use of such regulations.

Objectives:

  • The FMCSRs often used by plaintiff’s counsel to establish “safety rules” used to support their reptile arguments
  • Recent court decisions analyzing the extent to which a driver’s and/or motor carrier’s violation of FMCSRs supports a plaintiff’s negligence claims
  • Practical pointers on how to best combat a plaintiff’s use of a driver’s and/or motor carrier’s violation of FMCSRs to support negligence claims.
