Lashly & Baer attorney Patrick E. Foppe will present at an upcoming DRI webinar with other members of the DRI Trucking Law Committee. The group will discuss the topic of Challenging Plaintiffs’ Use of Federal Regulations to Bolster Negligence Claims.
This “Lunch and Learn” webinar will provide an in-depth look at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) relating to driver qualification, hours of service, and equipment maintenance, and will address how such regulations are used by plaintiffs to establish “safety rules” that bolster their negligence claims. Attendees will also learn about recent court decisions analyzing the extent to which an alleged violation of the FMCSRs by a motor carrier or driver can support a plaintiff’s negligence claims and will take away practical pointers on how to best combat a plaintiff’s use of such regulations.
