Description

This “Lunch and Learn” webinar will address common types of experts used in trucking litigation, how to locate an appropriate expert for your case and when to use an expert. Panelists will also discuss the selection and use of experts from the time counsel first gets “the call” through the discovery period and trial, from identifying and agreeing upon the scope of work, effective use of trucking experts to develop case themes and defenses, crafting demonstratives that work, common “expert pitfalls,” and preparing for Daubert or Frye challenges. We will discuss the Trucking Attorney’s toolbox of possible experts to retain, including the use of accident reconstructionists, biomechanical engineers, human factors experts, trucking safety experts and others.
