Regulations Update and Accident Reconstruction Best Practices

Motor Carrier Regulations Update
Jury Research & Today's Technology 
In-Cab Technology
Trucking Companies in the Courtroom 

Hosted by NCTA & Smith, Moore, Leatherwood, LLP at the NCTA office.

How many changes have been made to the FMCSA proposed Carrier Safety Fitness Determination rule? Or to the rule requiring speed limiting devices in heavy trucks? Is the FMCSA considering a rule that would increase the minimum levels of financial responsibility for motor carriers, including liability coverage for bodily injury or property damage? These are just a few of the numerous rules and regulations that have and will affect the trucking industry. Rob Moseley of Smith Moore Leatherwood, LLP, leads the discussion of the changing face of the industry.

Attendees will also be introduced to an understanding of how technology in the cab plays out in the courtroom. Jim Hrycay of Hrycay Engineering will be telling the story of lane departure devices, in-cab cameras, ECMs, and other data recorders.

Also, a representative of Magna Legal Services will show attendees the latest in jury verdict research technologies. Leveraging the web has become a cost efficient manner in which to poll representative jurors for mock trials, focus groups and more.

Marc Tucker and Fredric Marcinak of Smith Moore Leatherwood's NC team will present on litigation issues relevant to trucking companies.
