Steven Gursten to share “lessons from a $34 million truck accident settlement”
Roundtable co-founder will present at advanced Las Vegas legal conference “How to Win Trucking Cases” for truck lawyers throughout the U.S.
Last week, I wrote about how our Roundtable law firm partners are gearing up to present at the largest legal conference in the country for injury attorneys this November. The conference, “How to Win Trucking Cases – 2015 Advanced Course,” is sponsored by the 360 Advocacy Group, and will run Nov. 1-3 in Las Vegas, at the Encore.
This is an advanced legal seminar focused on the skills, tactics and techniques that teach lawyers to successfully litigate and win all types of trucking cases. Our goal is to better protect people hurt in commercial motor vehicles accidents – often at the hands of negligent truck company management and truckers who have a profits-over-safety mentality.
Today I’d like to talk a little bit about my own topic, “Settlement Tips and Strategies in Truck Accident Cases.”
My presentation will be based on an Ohio truck accident case last year that I worked on with my fellow Roundtable Co-Founder, Michael Leizerman. The case resulted in a $34 million settlement, which turned out to be the largest-reported truck accident settlement in the nation for 2014, as well as the largest truck accident settlement ever by a Michigan attorney, according to VerdictSearch. Because of a strict confidentiality clause, I unfortunately cannot discuss specific details of the case.
But I will discuss the important takeaways for truck accident lawyers during my talk. I will also touch on some practical strategies for how attorneys can better negotiate cases on behalf of their clients.
For a preview of my talk, please take a look at my blog post: 7 lessons from a $34 million settlement.
If you’re interested in attending the conference, here’s more information, including other conference topics and registration.
Next week, we will get into more detail about Joe Fried’s topics at the 360 Advocacy trucking conference. Joe’s topics are “Industry Standards for Truckers and Motor Carriers: What They Are and Where to Find Them” and “Industry Standards for Truckers and Motor Carriers: Application to Exam Corporate Designees, Safety Directors and Drivers.”
