Is there a “Zen” approach in truck accident litigation?
Tips for confronting the hurdles and immense stresses involved in commercial trucking cases
Truck Roundtable founding attorney Michael Leizerman will be speaking to injury lawyers from across the country this week during the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Jazz Fest Truck Accident Seminar in New Orleans.
Michael’s special presentation is called, “The Zen Approach to Trucking Litigation.”
After Michael and co-founder Steven Gursten recovered a $34 million settlement – the highest truck accident settlement in 2014 according to VerdictSearch – many might say that whatever “zen” might be, Michael’s already got it. But with layers of insurance, sometimes hidden, along with insurance adjusters playing games and the way these cases are often defended, trucking litigation is far from “zen” for many lawyers. The truth is, it’s incredibly complicated and involves an immense amount of work.
Michael will share tips with his fellow lawyers on how to get through these hurdles and obtain the best settlements and trial verdicts possible on behalf of people who become catastrophically hurt when truck companies truck a blind eye to safety.
A big part of confronting these hurdles and the immense stress involved in these cases, Michael says, is using a framework grounded in ourselves as attorneys to more effectively persuade and communicate.
The American Association for Justice Jazz Fest is April 30, to May 1, 2015 in New Orleans.
The trucking seminar will focus on the latest courtroom litigation strategies for representing victims of motor vehicle and trucking and bus accident collisions. A faculty of experienced trial lawyers and consultants, including Michael, will offer advanced tools and tactics for injury attorneys to implement in cases.
Michael is a past-chair of the AAJ Truck Accident Litigation Group, and is the current Chair of the AAJ Truck Accident Litigation Group’s Public Affairs Committee. The AAJ is the nation’s largest association of legal advocates, with more than 50,000 lawyer members.
