Debunking NHTSA myths in trucking litigation

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 10:09:59 EST

Volume 43, Number 2, February 2007 p.18
Trucking companies often contend that if they meet federal safety regulations, they've done everything necessary to ensure that their trucks are safe and roadworthy. And much of the public has been led to believe the same thing. The former chief enforcement officer for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives an insider's perspective on just how faulty those beliefs are.



In the eyes of the beholder

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 10:09:59 EST

Volume 43, Number 2, February 2007 p.26
At first glance, it looks like a hopeless case: Your client crashed her car into a stopped vehicle on a dry road in clear driving conditions. But looks can be deceiving. New studies of the human perception-reaction process show that for many reasons, the driver may have had no way to avoid the collision. A thorough understanding of the science of seeing can help you show that your client was not at fault.



Saving negligent entrustment claims

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 10:09:59 EST

Volume 43, Number 2, February 2007 p.34
Once a trucking company admits agency, your negligent hiring claim is dead, right? Not so fast: In the 46 states that apply some form of the comparative-fault rule, plaintiff lawyers can argue that admission of agency does not bar negligent entrustment claims. Preserving your claim is not easy or certain; you'll need a solid grounding in the case law and the right set of facts. But the potential rewards--justice for your client and greater safety on the roads--are worth the effort.



The 'smart' air bag case

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 10:09:59 EST

Volume 43, Number 2, February 2007 p.40
Air bags are getting "smarter." They can vary their force of deployment depending on a vehicle's speed, or not deploy at all if they detect a child in a seat. Unfortunately, automakers are still trying to cut corners, and crash victims are still being needlessly hurt. The author reviews the latest advances in air bag technology and recent rulings in relevant cases.



How to challenge a black box report

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 10:09:59 EST

Volume 43, Number 2, February 2007 p.50
Defendants in auto-crash cases will often download information from a vehicle's crash data recorder, or "black box," to show that the driver, not the car, caused an accident. But these reports are frequently marred by missing or erroneous data and are subject to wildly inaccurate interpretation. To help jurors understand what really happened, you must learn the limitations of this technology and monitor how the defendant handles and interprets the data.

Civil liability for identity theft

Wed, 14 Feb 2007 10:09:59 EST

Volume 43, Number 2, February 2007 p.58
Each year, millions of Americans discover that their private financial information has been stolen. Even long after the identity thief is convicted, the repercussions--including monetary loss, embarrassment, and wrecked credit ratings--continue to plague them. Civil litigation against responsible third parties can help victims regain part of what has been stolen from them.
