Litigation from accidents or employment issues is an unfortunate reality for trucking businesses. Anyone who’s ever been involved with the process will tell you that it’s stressful knowing that your testimony can cost your firm thousands, maybe even millions of dollars in damages. For the past four years, ATA’s Safety & Maintenance Management Council has teamed with some of the best law firms in the state to perform a mock trial that gives attendees more confidence to overcome nerves and hone trial skills. Participating in a mock trial forces you to think on your feet and develop construct persuasive arguments and examinations in a limited period of time — very much like a witness would on the stand.
The theme this year will be geared toward the Human Resources side of our business as we hope to provide you with the information that will help you work more in a “preventive v. reactive” environment, which at the end of the day will make companies more safe and compliant.
Make plans now to attend this educational session on August 22, 2017 at the ATA headquarters in Montgomery. Our friends from the Starnes, Davis and Florie, LLP law firm will conduct this free seminar to ATA members.
