About the Webinar
The number and dollar amounts of so-called "nuclear verdicts" against trucking companies have risen dramatically over the past decade. It's clear these types of cases aren't going away. So what should carriers be doing to protect themselves?
The driver qualification process plays a big role in most of these cases. Plaintiffs often allege motor carriers have acted recklessly by hiring unqualified drivers and placing them behind the wheel of a commercial motor vehicle. With that being the case, carriers should be closely evaluating their driver qualification process and standards to ensure they meet minimum regulatory requirements and meet or exceed current industry standards.
Watch this PrePass webinar, presented by FleetOwner, as transportation attorney and president of Trucksafe Consulting Brandon Wiseman:
- Summarizes federal and state driver qualification standards for commercial drivers
- Discusses how fleets are going above the minimum regulatory requirements when qualifying drivers
- Explores how carriers can leverage software and technology to develop a defensible qualification program
