Trucking Cases: Intake to Resolution Webinar Series - January 13-15, 2020
Truck crash litigation is different than litigating car crash cases. This webinar series starts with an overview of the federal regulations and industry standards that govern commercial motor vehicles. It then gets more in-depth with currently technology issues and ends with practical advice for maximizing case value. Each webinar is $99 for OAJ members or $250 for all 3 days. Click here for more information and to register.
