Truck Drivers and the Transportation Industry: The Public’s Perception Post COVID-19
Presented By: DRI's Trucking Law Committee
Attendees will hear from an industry claims director and assistant general counsel, the general counsel of the American Trucking Associations, and a seasoned trucking attorney regarding the changing perception of truck drivers and the trucking industry as a whole in light of COVID-19. The speakers will discuss in detail how the trucking industry responded to assist Americans in the midst of COVID-19, the recent press relating to truck drivers and the trucking industry as a result of how the trucking industry responded to COVID-19, and the educational opportunities for those working in the trucking industry (drivers, managers, lawyers, etc.) presented by this global health pandemic. Additionally, the speakers will discuss the ways in which the trucking industry and the legal profession can preserve and use the improved public perception of truck drivers and the trucking industry in the post-COVID-19 era to defend against a plaintiff’s claims, including during the discovery phase, during voir dire, and at trial.
