Ron Capehart, an attorney at The Bassett Firm, spoke to a room full of safety directors at trucking companies at one of our Boot Camp events. They’d come to learn more about how online training can help them in multiple ways. Ron’s presentation focused on how to prepare a trucking company before, during, and after a catastrophic event.
Here are some of the headlines jotted down throughout the room as he was talking:
1. The Nine Things to Gather at the Scene of an Accident
2. The 5 Things to Remember About Trucking Litigation
3. How to Avoid the “F-Word” in Trucking Litigation
4. Why the Safety Manual is an Oversized Paperweight
But there was one thing that really stood out to the room. Ron asked this:
“Did you know one of the first 10 questions asked in almost every deposition by a plaintiff’s attorney is ‘What is your company’s policy on what to do at an accident, and were you trained on it?’”
The reason it stood out … every pen in the room was frantically writing down the question. Two-thirds of the room then admitted their company didn’t have an accident policy like Ron had described earlier.
No one wants that call at 4:00 in the morning.
But chances are you’re going to get that call at some point in your career. So if any one of your drivers was, knock-on-wood, involved in an accident today and asked that question … how would you fare in litigation?
I’d like to invite you to attend our next Safety Management Boot Camp.
The event is held at the state-of-the-art Vertical Alliance Training Campus in Dallas, Texas. The lawyer presentation is just one of the many things you’ll learn from over the course of two days. Reserve your free seat to our next event online.
