10/8/2020 Hello,
Please join us on Tuesday, December 8th at 1:30 pm ET for the Transportation Committee Town Hall: Cutting Edge Trends
In this interactive Town Hall discussion, panelists will respond to questions keeping Claims Professionals up at night; including discussion surrounding the role of truck drivers and trucking companies as heroes as they bring food and medicine to protect the safety of the community.
Anticipated topics include analysis of preventative measures taken by trucking companies, as well as the importance of early case analysis leading to a consistent defense theme that the driver and company should be revered, not feared, as Plaintiff’s attorneys would suggest. 
Plaintiffs’ attorneys’ attempts to analogize the pandemic, severe economic conditions, and social unrest to a Reptile Theory attack will be examined.  The panel will provide concrete examples on humanizing the defense as part of a theme that they are not a threat to the community, preventing nuclear verdicts. 
The panel will discuss Plaintiff’s argument that the technology of the fleet is not the safest and current changes in the Federal regulations.  The importance of securing any in-cab cameras, as well as any cameras at the scene, will also be addressed. 
Current trends will be discussed from the perspective of a trucking company, TPA, insurance carrier, and defense attorney. 
This Town Hall will be led by: Jim Foster, Joseph Pappalardo, Lea Kapral, Tom McLaughlin, Tammy Warn, and Charles Wendland.
