Eric Miersma to Present at DRI Trucking Law Seminar
BPH attorney, Eric Miersma, will be giving a presentation titled, “The Amazon Effect: When Plaintiffs Sue More than Just the Motor Carrier” at the upcoming Defense Research Institute’s (DRI) Trucking Law Seminar to be held April 30-May 1, 2020 in Austin, Texas. Increasingly, plaintiffs are not just suing motor carriers and drivers in trucking accident cases, but also shippers, brokers, and equipment owners. The unique legal issues and challenges involved include theories of vicarious liability, contractual matters, and other considerations. This presentation, which Mr. Miersma is co-presenting with Scott Turner of Scott L. Turner Consulting LLC, will provide practical insight to navigate this complex battlefield.
The DRI’s Trucking Law Seminar, a can’t miss event for trucking lawyers and industry personnel, is certain to set the standard for how trucking companies and their drivers are perceived in the future. Find out more and register here.
