Law Review- 18 Wheelers & Stories: Why Crafting A Compelling Narrative is Critical in Trucking Litigation

Please register for this recorded ATA webinar. 

Webinar Description

This webinar will discuss the importance of crafting a compelling narrative for the jury, which begins the day of the accident. While the Plaintiff's story easily tells itself, trucking companies and drivers have their own stories to tell. This webinar discusses the importance of that narrative and the work that must be put in to successfully craft a compelling story.
